Winchester by Lapua? Login/Join

I recently saw some .223 ammo advertised as "Made in Sweden by Lapua" in Winchester boxes with Winchester headstamps.
I was wondering if anyone has any information on the quality of the ammo, especially the brass. Is it safe to assume that the brass will be made to the usual Lapua standards? If so, I might buy it, just for the brass.

Edit: 5.56 not .223

SGA has it in stock now and by all reports it’s good ammo for the price. One report I read showed an average of 2983 fps from an 18” barrel.

It is 5.56 though and not .223.
