Hey guys, I'm looking for is some Mk 262 Mod 1 ammo.
I've tried searching around the net, looking for retailers (Cabella's, Georgia Precision etc.) that stock/sell this ammo but haven't had much luck yet.

Who knows where I can get a few boxes to try out?

cabelas does. Look under new manufacture (red box) black hills and scroll down to the 5.56 loading. That is it. At least as close as you'll get. It's factory seconds but everyone says it's great. I've still yet to try it. My upper is accurate with Q3131a and I haven't got the heart to pay this kind of money yet.

Cabellas has it for $27.99 -

Black Hills New Manufacture Ammunition - 5.56mm - 77 Grain MKCL

Factory seconds from BH have to be pretty damn good ammo though...

When I buy from Cabelas, I pay $0.56/round. Expensive, but really good ammo.

When I roll-my-own, I pay $0.35/round (all new components).

Mk262 Recipe:
-Sierra 77 gr. MK
-Winchester .223 REM brass
-Remington 7 1/2 primer
-24-grains Ramshot TAC

What's the difference between this and the red box Black Hills 77gr. sierra boat tail HP stuff that you can buy at Midway USA?

Anybody know what the Fulton Armory stuff is? I assume Red Box (softer load) however is says 2,750FPS which sounds like a NATO load. If you trust the Guns & Ammo article...

"Switching to Black Hills 77-grain Mk 262 Mod 1 cut the group size dramatically. Four rounds clustered into less than half an inch, and Norcross put all five into .6 inch. Most impressive was the velocity of this 5.56 pressure load. The 77-grain Sierras were averaging 2,783 fps from the short 18-inch barrel. In comparison a Black Hills .223 Remington-pressure 77-grain match load averaged 2,615 fps from this rifle."

Fulton Armory
77 Gr. Sierra MatchKing
Velocity 2750 FPS
Energy 1293 Ft. Lbs.

What am I to think?

I apologize. No post about the Mk 262 round is complete without some Mk 12 clone pr0n!!!

I heard you could buy direct from Black Hills - quantities starting at 25,000! With that size order you could get it down to $300/500 or so... Looks like the seconds might be cheaper...

Spooky

They also sell the same thing, but by the case only. At least that's how I read it.

The test barrel is 24". Thus the above .223 load at "2615 fps" will reach 2750 out of a 24" test barrel.
