The local gunstore has 20rd boxes of .223 75 grn TAP FPD for $17. Is this a good enough price to warrant stocking-up and buying 5-10 boxes, or are there better deals available? (if yes, where?)

thanks

There are better deals on the internet but most places are backordered. I pay 17.95 for my TAP ammo at my local gun store.

Yes there are better deals available.

Go to Fulton Armory and buy Black Hills 75gr OTM (Heavy Match). Same darn thing.

$19.95 for 50 rounds using once fired brass or $26.95 for 50 rounds of new manfacture with sealed primers (that is less than half the price you are paying).

doesnt somebody from BH post here on the forum? If so, we should convince them of making some 5.56 75gr.

If Black Hills were to ever do that I'd hope that they would use the 77gr Nosler.

Why is that?

Also, what's the difference between a Nosler and whatever that Mark LEKERWROUIO or whatever it's called by Sierra?

The 77gr Nosler has a shorter neck than the 75gr Hornady before it yaws and frags in the ballistic JELL-O, and slightly more fragmentation.

I don't know about the Sierra.
