.223

  1. Firearms General Discussion
    Ha so I don't have a credit card, for maybe obvious reasons. But I have ammo I'd love to sell while the market is right. Looked into gunbroker, armslist, ar15.com, gunsamerica, gun auction, buysellammo Nothing will let you list without either a fee or entering a valid credit card. I can try...

    You are in a house and are in need of clearing it. Let's say you are not bogged down by much gear. You have a choice, a pistol caliber carbine or a short barreled AR-15 in .223 (with or without a butt stock). I know a pistol is the most tight-area maneuverable gun you could use, but I'd rather...

    Alright, I have my 10.5" barrel AR-15 in 5.56x45mm, and it is a blast to shoot. I'm used to full-length rifles, but with such a short barrel, which ammo do you all use for "defensive" situations? I've been told ballistic tip 4-legged varmint loads work. What say you all?

    A shop near me is having a close out sale on all reloading supplies and has a decent selection of powder, I already cleaned out their primers:D:. Coincidentally a couple friends and I are about to receive a metric ton (maybe exaggerating a tad:cool:) of 556 brass so we are open to trying new...

    New to the AR 15. So I'm Looking for ammo with the least issues but also reasonably priced. Any suggestions?
  6. Firearms General Discussion
    Thinking of purchasing one. A few friends own them, great reviews on line. Anybody have any experience with them? Or can recommend another rifle for the price core 15 can be bought for?

    Hey I am looking to custom build my first AR, I think I have decided on the LMT Defense 2000 for the lower, and I have no idea for a upper receiver. I'm trying to keep the whole gun under 1400, and te lower runs about 350$. I would really like atleast a 10in hamdguard or bigger, and if it costs...

    Ok, so for the past many years, I have been under the assumption that .223 and 5.56 were one in the same. A guy that I work with explained that this is not true. That there is a difference between the two. I have fired many .223 federal through my Colt HBAR Elite 5.56 NATO and had no...

    So do to me being exceptionally cheap these days I was at the range and the guy next to me dumped about 200 rounds of tula .223 down range. Then he packed up and left. I was thinking what a d bag and decided to pick up his brass for him. I shoot on a public lands range so you have to police...

    So I am reloading 5.56 for my stg 556. Me being a military guy I usually reload 55 grain fmj or 77 grain smk. But I wanted ideas from the sb masses. I was considering 55 grain vmax or some type of varmint round. This ammo would be for shtf/home defense. I love the 77 grain smk used it overseas...

    I have recently purchased a Windham AR-15 in 5.56/.223, and have loved it. The only let down of owning the weapon has been finding ammo that I can buy more than 5 boxes of 20 rounds in a given day. I have considered buying a 250 round box, or even more, but what I have not been able to figure...

    Hello I have some questions about a Panther Arms DPMS .223 5.56, Walmart is selling the gun for about $600 dollars. I could not find a picture of the exact gun online. Basically i want to know is this a good gun or not? And is it consider an AR clone? What do you guys think?

    My current main SHTF arsenal consists of a Type 56 SKS as my MBR (which I actually prefer over the AK style rifle), A Remington 870 Express Mag for my main shotgun, Stevens Model 200 .308 as my long range rifle (it's actually a real tackdriver for the money), a Ruger 10/22, a Browning Buckmark...

    Which is a better caliber for SHTF?

    I know this has been done a million times already. But I had to put it out there because I may have changed my mind. Until recently I have been a firm believer if anyone can only have one gun, it has to be a .22lr rifle. If you have the luxury of having more, then get whatever, but ALWAYS have a...
