I have heard that the South African battle packs are a good deal right now in 5.56. What is the best source for this stuff?

Thanks.

Try a local gun show. I picked up a 300 rd. battle pack today for $38.

For what it's worth, I bought 2,700 rounds of that South African ammo and it is VERY good. I just recently bought my first AR (Bushmaster Dissipator) and have been shooting every kind of ammo I can find to see "what works" and "what don't". I have found that the ammo in those South African battle packs is really good stuff. I had a friend pick me up a 2,700 round plastic "tub" (9 sealed packs of 300 rounds each) at a gun show for $370

that seems to be the going rate. Eric at ammoman is selling 2700 for $375 but I will point out that that is a delivered price and no sales tax.

Oh yeah, and the site told me it was backordered about 3 weeks and it would be shipped out then, BUT it was at my door in ONE WEEK. ????????

cool, I'll have to try them...

Is all their ammo this cheap or is it hit and miss?

Just curious,

Ammoman's quoted price is $145/1000, and the battle packs are 300 rounds each (10 30-rnd boxes).

I presume he does not ship 3 battlepacks, 3 boxes, and 10 loose rounds, so what is the actual deal?

He sends 3 battle packs and 5 loose boxes of 20 rnds each.

never mind, that was for the .308 I got. I don't know what he does for .223.
