A friend and I bought 1000 of these bullets for plinking and 3-gun. We're shooting 2"-2.5" groups at 200 yards with 6x & 7X scopes! Great bullets for the price, would recommend them. And they arrive in 3 days clear across the country. (Posted on 9/1/2017)

I placed my first ever order with Everglades on Christmas of 2016. They had my order to me within 3 days across the country. Amazing service and value! You've earned a new customer for life. Keep-up the great work! The LC Brass and Version 1 FMJ .223 bullets are great products. Thank You! (Posted on 1/10/2017)

Fast and packaged awesomely!Review by Justin

Thank you so much for getting my order out so quickly and for packaging it so well! The bullets were in plastic bags which were placed in shipping boxes which were placed inside of another shipping box which was completely covered in shipping tape for extra strength. Wow! One of the 9mm bags ruptured during shipment, but it didn't matter because those bullets weren't going anywhere! Not until they get helped along by a little powder, that is. :) Thanks again, you have my business the next time around as well! (Posted on 11/11/2016)

223 55gr FMJ Bullets Version 1Review by Seabee Shooter
Overall Rating
Ok Folks,
As always Everglades shipping and customer service is top notch. I bought 1000 of these to load up for AR plinking ammo. Yep they were spot on SUB MOA @ 100yds all day. Then I decided to try them in my 24" Bull barrel Varmint assassin AR I built. Sheez! Clover leaf @100 yds. 250 yds it was averaging .48" using LC brass and Tac powder. I can buy 3x's as many of these for the price of 40 & 50 gr varmint bullets. Im ordering a few thousand more. (Posted on 10/21/2016)

From my 20'' 1:8 twist AR15 there was no trajectory deviation at 250 yards compared to a 55 gr bullet with a longer ogive and ballistic coefficient. What more can I ask for. (Posted on 8/28/2016)

Giving my Dillon 650 a work outReview by Stewy33
Overall Rating
I discovered everglades ammo by accident on a typo and never looked back. I ordered 8000 of these in bulk and arrived in 3 days to Wisconsin. Very impressive. I loaded up a number of rounds different powders and to my surprise the Hodgdon H4198 shot the best in my 1-9 twist dpms. Due to the fast burn of the powder I needed to load close to max @20.2 gr to make sure the weapon cycled a new round. The Version 1 FMJ are great for a range day and teaching family members how to use an Ar-15. Very fun for the family and these bullets load outstanding in a progressive press. My Dillion 650 dropped almost 2000 rounds already and will order more of these when I need them again. Thanks everglades top notch! (Posted on 4/10/2016)

Great valueReview by Rc
Overall Rating
New to reloading .223, however I was surprised at the accuracy of these bullets. Wanted to go through a dozen or so Loading at 25grs of H-335 with a slight taper crimp from a Lee factory crimp die. Accuracy is softball sized at 40-50 yards off hand, out if a 1/8 twist barrell. Accuracy did open up slightly with no crimp to about 5 inch diameter at same distance off hand. Great value for reloading and plinking rounds.
Very happy overall. Fast shipping. I will be back for more. (Posted on 2/28/2016)

Reliable vendor

Quality product

I've found all of them from Everglades. These are great bullets. We used them to sight in our new AR-15 and were able to get repeatable tight groupings.
When you find everything you want, there's no need to look elsewhere. Next time I will be ordering from Everglades. (again) (Posted on 1/30/2016)

Out of a random 5 bullet weight check. Of the supposed 54 grain weight I had an AMAZING 3 bullets exactly 54 grains the other two were 54.2, and 54.3 grain. For the price that is great. I took 5 random Winchester and got 1 55 grain and 2 55.3 and 2 55.4 grains. (Posted on 1/22/2016)

My first-order was 4000. These projectiles are fantastic. Shipping was a day ahead of schedule. Anybody that thinks they won't hold a group is dead wrong. This is a perm product at an excellent price. At 75 meters half-inch group. I am very impressed with this and I highly recommend them. Was so impressed I ordered 10,000 more. (Posted on 1/8/2016)

I have loaded several thousand rounds with this bullet, and have never had the slightest problem. They make this hobby affordable, and that is always a good thing. Top all that with super fast shipping, and what is not to like. (Posted on 1/5/2016)

Good Bullet For The PriceReview by Todd
Overall Rating
Good bullets for plinking at a great price. I just wanted to write this review for any shooters that might be using a 1/7 twist barrel. Best I could get was a 2''-2 1/2'' group at 100 yards. This is not any fault of Everglade, this twist barrel just didn't seem to like this style bullet. Shot the same load out of my 1/8 twist stainless. 1/2 in. group all day long. (not bad for a plinking bullet!) Very impressed with the consistency of the weight of the bullets. At this great price I will be purchasing more. Everglades shipping and customer service is the best!
