How much is PMC Bronze .233 ammo worth?

Someone is trying to sell me some PMC .223 55gr FMJ red & white box .223 and some PMC Bronze .223 55gr FMJ.

The code on all of it is 223A.

Anyone know what this is worth?

I have seen PMC Bronze .223 ranging from $7 to $9/ per 20 rounds. I bought a few thousand rounds of it a few months ago for about 8 bones/ per 20 rounds. Hope this helped.

Considering that we are starting to see bulk 223/5.56 for just about $5 per box, I would say it is worth about $5 per box.

There is a case of Lake City remanufactured M193 brass that is available also. What is that worth?

$5.00 per 20? $250.00 for 1,000.00?

Is the PMS worth a little more?

$275-300 per 1k, since you can get PMC made hotshot 55gr for $550 shipped per 2k

Oppossite, lake city is mil-spec and high quality so its more expensive. It generally goes $330-350 per 900rounds soabout $360 per 1k

Yeah, I don't think this is happening, unless he is talking about wolf/steel cased. PMC isn't the greatest, but its still better then wolf/steel.

PMC 223 is readily available in the $0.30 to $0.35 per round range.

It's good stuff too as far target ammo goes. I've never had even a minor issue while shooting it.

$5.50 per box plus shipping when you add it to your cart. If you can afford two cases, they eat the shipping costs. By most accounts, this stuff is PMC in a different package

Awesome deal. I just got .223 dies and components, but will still need factory ammo for classes. I was going to hem and haw on this for a while, but at $287.95 for 1K shipped I just pulled the trigger tonight before they sell out. Kinda like that super-under-the-radar $195 Golden Tiger 7.62 x39 deal going on right now...

I live in a small town with only 1 "gun shop" along with a pawn shop that sells guns and ammo. Everything in both shops is highly overpriced so therefore I hardly ever go in them, but I went to the "gun shop" the other day just to see what kind of ammo the guy had. This guy is out of his mind, he had pmc bronze 55 grain for 16.99 per 20 round box. Needless to say I didn't buy any. I never buy anything when I go in I either buy out of town or order online. I called the guy once to see how much he charged to do a transfer on a lower and he wanted $50, he wasn't interested in competing with the pawn shop which charges $25, so no buisness from me. I'm not sure how the guy stays in buisiness.

Here's my thought on pricing... The panic and hoarding is over, the economy is still soft, and the US dollar is staging a nice rally and getting stronger. Some people think it's going to get really strong.

If that happens and the economy continues to lag we are going to see even lower prices on the foreign made ammo in the coming months/years.

I just jumped on this. Much better deal than I get around here. Gun shop wanted 10.99 for a box of PMC bronze.

Good deal for the Korean 55 gr (PMC) but you need to have an FFL on file to get that price($275 per K). I got 2K with my C&R at the $275 per K price and no shipping cost, split it with some friends.

That's not true! You don't need an FFL to buy non-firearm items.

2. Curio & Relic License Holders and Non-Firearm Consumers pay $12.95 for orders under $500. Minimum order of $75.00. Free Shipping for orders over $500 after discounts have been applied. *Handgun orders do not apply.
