I found Federal AE223 ammo today for $5.50 a box. It was all headstamped LC 06 with the Nato cross. I bought 10 boxes, was this a good buy?

right now? based off of what i've seen, that's about the going price. locally, all i can find are the 200 round "value" packs for almost $70... close to $7 a box


i remember buying it just a few months ago at $3.89/20

I got 10 cases yesterday for $200 per thousand at a shop in southern NH, out on route 28.
Guy has 50k on the floor, will only sell to walk in customers.

I'm going back today with a truck.....

I guess I have been away too long. I remember buying at $2.80/box. and I donn't think I'll ever have to buy another box again. Even it I shoot that much I've got enough LC brass I'll never use it all. Lesson here is when you see a deal BUY ALL YOU CAN!

This is the ammo they sell at the Sportsmans Center on every military base in the U S. If you are retired military you should be ordering this stuff like mad. No Tax, 5.25 a box, less if you purchase a case.

Like I said in the original post,

It is headstamped, LC 06 with the NATO cross, so almost new production. Bright & shiny.

It was only $5.50 per box of 20 and NO sales tax as we I live in Alaska. he
And the kicker, If I buy a case, I get a 5% discount. so a total of $261.25/1000.

I buy at Sportsman Warehouse.

That's not a bad price! I got 1K of the AE for $275 tax included, and that was with a $1/box discount since I bought a case.
