Not yet. But there are two more loadings scheduled for this year.

The 123 grain load seems to be a load for a PDW that would perform well on hard targets.

What will be coming out first 123gr, 155gr, or the 220gr?

The proof ammo is 220 grain, and I don't know the pressure.

Most people will want the 123 and 220 - both should come out at the same time.

We already consumed 60,000 rounds. There are two more larger loadings scheduled for this year. I am not sure how much of it will go to the military and so I don't know when we will have enough to sell commercially.
