    On May 4th, I checked out ammoseek.com for 5.56 ammo deals. They listed "By Texans For Texans" as being the cheapest with a price of 67 bucks per hundred for FMJ. I ordered 300 rounds for 222 bucks total. Their site said they had 147 "battle packs" in stock at the time. Today, I got an e-mail...

    Okay, I'm not an AR guy. I did own an older Bushmaster years ago but one of the boys got it. Anyway, to make a long story longer, someone gave me a case (500 rounds) of Federal XM193F 5.56 M193 Ball and a ziplock bag with 137 rounds of rounds of loose rounds. All but one or two of the loose...

    Ive got a Colt LE6920 and not even sure if it takes steel well or not. I've got plenty of high quality ammo and I kinda don't want to try it out and save the embarrassment at the range if any of the casings get stuck. 1. Do Colts like Steel? 2. Should I sell em?

    The shelves are empty, except for a few select calibers. Those calibers are 243 Winchester, 30-30 Winchester, 270 Winchester, 7mm magnum, 45 colt and 30-06 Springfield. A line of people are standing at the counter in the hopes the store got a shipment in. Sounds like something from a movie...

    So I have been thinking in worst case scenario what ammo do you think will be most plentiful. This is my list based on nothing but guesses, so it is quite likely it will not be very accurate. .22 long Rifle 5.56/223. I put them in the same category as I can fire both from my AR15. Of the two I...

    When I look at buying a new rifle or rifle caliber, first I consider how that rifle will fit into my long term SHTF survival plans. What niche does the rifle fill, how easy is it to find replacement parts, is ammunition easy to find, is the rifle user friendly so I can teach my kids how to shoot...

    Does anyone know what the deal is with the price of the Lake City 5.56 Green Tip 62 gr ammo?. About 3 months ago I bought two of the 420rds W/metal Ammo cans or $145.00 each from S&G ammo,...is a deal like that around still or are those deals gone for good or should I just sit it out and wait...

    After watching last weeks Top Shot I've been thinking about the 5.7 for several reasons and would like to hear what other are thinking. With the 5.7 the FPS is high enough to be effective, but the thing that has peaked my interest is that I can shoot the same round from a 5.7 pistol virtually...

    Looking to expand my stockpile of 223, so who has the best deals on brass cased ammo? Over the past few years I have been buying Monarch 223 from Academy sports and outdoors. Monarch is something like $4.89 for a box of 20 but is steel cased. After taking inventory last weekend I decided I...

    I'm looking into something larger than the 5.56/.223. The main rounds I've been looking at are 6.8 SPC and 6.5 Grendel. Opinions and evaluations on these rounds?

    ARs of Russian Inspiration "What do you get when you cross an AR with an AK? You get the Rock River Arms LAR-47, which accepts AK-47 mags and is chambered in 7.62 X 39 Russian. Gracing the cover of the March 12, 2012 issue of Gun Digest the Magazine is the Centurion 39, an American-made AK-47...

    I'm asking specifically for the most reliable ammunition for an AR15 (Mine will be a Mil Spec 1/7 twist AR). What 5.56 Ammo do you count on in case the SHTF situations, which ammo has the least FTF rounds. Where do you buy it? I've been looking at ammo for a few weeks trying to decide what...

    So I know it has been discussed but I was unable to find the thread that contains the info I'm seeking. I read on these boards that Wolf or Tula is fine for target shooting but not in a shtf situation. Can someone explain why? I, like a lot of people are on a budget, therefore, I have to buy...

    So buddy of mine recently purchased a Dillon 650 progressive press. I sent him some .223 and 5.56 brass to reload for me. He came through and loaded up some 75gr match .223 BTHP's for me. I am really looking forward to testing it out at the range. I'll be shooting these out of my Spikes...

    So Im finally ready to pull the trigger and buy my first AR, I settle on a spikes and of course now I cant find an online store with one in stock. Went down to the local gun store and they had a RRA he said was comparable, but it cost about a 100 bucks more and I would have to pay sales tax on...

    This is not a question which round is better, but which one is more prevalent out there. MY guess is there's more more prepper folks stocking 55gr over 62gr. I am very green to AR's. However, I do think the military uses 62gr for their main round for the regular joes using M4's. Just...
