    223 Ammo Score

    Went into my local Wal Mart the other evening and got a 100 round box of Federal .223 FMJ's for 34.99. I passed a guy leaving the sporting goods counter with a bag in hand and a big smile on his face. The clerk told me had I been there about 3 minutes earlier I'd have gotten the 3 boxes instead of 1.

    My AR is chambered for 5.56 too but I can't find much 5.56 anywhere. I did find some at a gun store a couple weeks back but it was 89.99 for 100. I just ain't going to pay that.

    I was surprised to find 5.56 let alone any 223. And this was at wal-mart. I came I saw I bought. Wasnt leavin the store empty handed. A good day indeed.

    I love hearing these stories of ammo becoming more and more available. A ray of sunshine, finally.

    Managed to get 100 rounds of 5.56 at a little out of the way store in Maine. Last box they had. Paid $45 plus tax.

    Nope. Theres a few good threads on the differences here. In a nutshell, you can shoot .223 through a 5.56 chambered rifle. Shooting 5.56 through a .223 chambered rifle isnt a good idea. Theres a few threads that will explain it much better than I can.

    not a bad price either, just before the hit I ordered a quantity of .223 wolfs at about $4.00 a box...

    the same boxes were going for $15.00 at the last gun show I went to... and at a gun store I stopped by at, and people were snatching them up like ice cubes on a hot day.
