Default 223 ammo

Anyone have a good source for good 223 ammo. Just built an AR and need to find 500-1000 rounds. Local prices are absurd.

"Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance."

"Human beings seldom think for themselves... For the most part, members of our species simply repeat what they are told and become upset if they are exposed to any different view. The characteristic human trait is not awareness but conformity... We are stubborn, self-destructive conformists. Any other view of our species is just a self-congratulatory delusion."

Natchez may have some good prices too. Just checked. They have a sale on Federal American Eagle. 1000 rounds for $299.
They may have other deals I didnt see.

If your gun has 223 stamped into the side of the barrel, do not substitute milsurp 5.56mm. It will chamber, but it's loaded to higher pressures and can damage a 223 AR with only a little use. A 5.56 barrel has more freebore than a 223 barrel.

Default reload

I reload all my own, I enjoy it and its like another hobby. Very rewarding when you reload your own and they shoot very accurately. You can work up a load that will wring out all the accuracy your gun has.

Ammunition To Go or Cabelas.

Check Cabelas at the end of the year and they seem to be clearing out that year's inventory.

What brand were you looking for?
