Anyone know anything about this brass or use it? Is it Israel Military brass? Just want to know if it’s as good as LC brass. Thanks

IMI stands for Israeli Military Industries. I don't have any direct experience with it, but from what I've heard and read it's comparable to LC.
I will never apologize for being an American.

I have used a bunch of IMI brass in the past in handgun calibers, and it was good stuff.

I’ve not used any IMI .308, but have used some .223 IMI factory ammo which was good, and some .50 BMG which was good (but my use wasn’t the hyper accurate stuff - .50 BMG Barrett shooting.

It’s been closer to commercial than LC in my limited experience with .50 and .223.

Thanks for your input. Use only LC in my AR’s as commercial brass gets chewed up pretty bad. Exception would be 300 BO. Use Hornady and a few others brass with no issues. 308 is brutal on commercial brass.
