Here's a pic of some assorted 5.56 rounds I have:



Left is Winchester green tip, middle and right some sort of Chinese (been a while since I looked it up). Winchester looks to be just corrosion, the middle one actually has paper or something on it. The right is probably the worst of all I have that I consider in "bad" shape.

Are any of these good to go? All in all if they're just going to get stuck, I'm not to worried. I don't want a KB, though.

Is there an easy way to clean these without hand scrubbing each one?

Brass tumbler. You can tumble live ammo. Some manufactures do this.

just look for splits in the case and wipe them down with a cloth as your loading up your mags to get the grit off.

Dunno. Great pictures. For whatever it is worth, consider that you have a $1000++ buck rifle and MAY want to employ POSSIBLY worthless suspect ammo through it. Would I do it? Probably not, but this is your decision.

Crazy as it may sound, a high quality handload done by yourself may be the best solution considering availablility and expense simply because you know EXACTLY what is in the reload. Plus that it's fun. HB of CJ :) :) :)
