I don't know which is more insane, someone selling it at that price or someone buying it at that price.

For the past two days, I've been having issues submitting a Palmetto State Armory ammo order. Either the website locks up, or it gives me an error that says something in my cart can not be shipped to this address. I've shipped ammo here before, and I know my state is not on their restricted state list. I've tried each item separately, tried different browsers, different computers, and even two different PSA accounts. I've used my address, friends in nearby cities, and my brother in Louisiana (I'm in Washington state).  Obviously you can't contact anyone there.  Is anyone else experiencing issues?

45 cents per round is an excellent price for brass cased 5.56 these days.... reality is anything under 50 cents per round is a good price in 2024. It seems like the Hamas bump is mostly over, any increases are the result of planned price increases. I made the mistake of being lulled into buying ammo as needed during the Trump years. Learned that lesson in 2020, now I'm buying a case or two a month until I run out of room. I was looking through my records; most I've paid per round for M193 since 2020 was 80 cents so it has at least gone down and become available.

I just snagged two cans of PPU M193 from AE Ammo. 47.5 cents per round delivered in a can seems like a really good deal and it's on the warmer side compared to most M193.

would it be possible to find out if other places sell the AAC ammo? or is it only PSA? got an email stating the 75gr 5.56 Sabre blade black tip was in stock, like i watched it come through, right away went and clicked the link and its gone.. are they just making low quantities of it? i dont even know what it or the 62gr stuff goes for, only the 55gr.

well i understand that point, 45-50 cents per round today is still better than 75-80 cpr or more tomorrow and thats how i view it, its still available  period while our money is tanking in value, ammo will never lose true value because i can feed myself with ammo if need be, eventually if cash becomes utterly worthless, well you can try and eat it if you must.
I see the argument from reloaders who wont reload certain calibers because you can buy those for less or the same cost at factory new prices, well yes that may be true, but the value of reloading comes when you cant buy the ammo at all because of various bans/laws etc  that will likely eventually come. then that expensive to reload ammo becomes a necessity that you wont care how much the powder and primers or brass cost you. not to mention having the ability to reload gives you a leg up for bartering. i dont even reload myself or have the equipment due to where i live and limited space, however i buy powder and primers here and there so if /when i do get into it, i have the key ingrediants ready to go, or i can always use it in barter for already made ammo at a hefty discount or something.  

point im trying to make is the value is that its still available. get it while you can before you simply cant. keep in mind what you dont use this lifetime, may be used by your kids or grandkids when they cant buy ammo either.

If they have gotten the casing issues ironed out, this looks like it would be okay - if someone was looking for a polymer tipped (vmax) varmint round.

I personally have been buying just bonded rounds for their greater use cases.

US M193 is 3,250 +/- 25 FPS out of a 20" barrel at the muzzle.  IMI is WAAAAY downloaded (about 3100 fps or less from a 20" barrel) which is a shame considering it used to be one of the hottest commercial loads available!

Its in stock now. Why would you choose the 77gr otm over the 75gr hornady match bullet?  I tested both on the chrono and the 75gr did slightly better in every category. Still need to shoot some groups with both though.

You gain literally nothing when shooting hotter loads. Nothing.

3100 fps from a 20" barrel will be more than adequate to any task.
