Ok so I have 2K Lake City XM193AF, 1.5K Fiocchi, 1K Privi Partisan, all 55grs. Which do I save and which do I shoot? Also what brand do you recommend stocking for when the power goes off permanently?

Save them all and shoot wolf.

If not, shoot the Prvi and the Fioochi, save the LC. Don't forget to save the brass.

ETA: Buy any ammo that has a brass case(except for PMC Bronze) and will stabilize in your barrel/s.

I normally decide what to shoot based on how it stores/fits in ammo cans.

Examples of boxes:
xm193 fed (20rd box) can fix lots of those in an ammo can. Keepers
Q3131 win 5.56 (20rd box) just like fed, very dense packing in ammo can
AE xm193 5.56 200rd bulk (thought it was 10x20rd boxes, opps)... very dense but I just don't like long term storing where brass is on brass
umc .223 50rd box (pretty dense, but is .223)
fed 100rd bulk .223 (same deal as AE xm193, but in .223)
umc .223 20rd box (way too big of a box, very few to the ammo can... temped to rip them open and dump them in a can)

I would shoot from the bottom up, but would likely skip the .223 50rd box so my .223 only rifles have something to eat in a SHTF.

Just offering a different point of view. Of course, all of these would be pretested to fully function in all of my rifles.

Yea.....don't buy any of that NASTY PMC Bronze.







That should leave more for me to buy.

OK I get “save the Federal LC” but I’m surprised by the opinion of "shoot the Privi before the Fioochi"???? What’s the deal with comment on the PMC bronze?

Like everyone else, save the LC. I would shoot the Fioochi first.

I would like to know too????. Have had good results with it...

Shoot the Fiocchi first. Pack up the Prvi and L.C.

There is nothing wrong with PMC bronze. Its great ammo. The only thing is that it`s 223 and not 5.56

XM193 and Prvi are high quality stuff, don't know about the Fiochi so I would use it first.
