I was just wondering if there is a better time of the year to buy? Do prices fluctuate in a regular pattern? It seems like some ammo (12 Ga) is cheaper at certain times. Does this happen with .223? I hate to spend $200 on a 1000 rounds if i can get it cheaper some other time?

Usually depends on whats around(surplus or commercial), how much is around and who's selling it.

I don't think it's comparable to 12ga ammo sales patterns.

Best thing to do is decide what you want, find a price range and buy it when its in that range. It's going to fluctuate a bit. My best advice is, if you shoot alot or want to put some away, buy as much as you can afford whenever you can. Good surplus has a bad habit of disappearing fast.

The best time to buy Q3131a is in July or August.

Haven't seen or heard of any seasonal fluctuations.

Bass Pro Shops has a yearly sale, IN-STORE ONLY, in late summer - for the last 2 years they have had Winchester IMI Q3131A 5.56, 55gr., for $144/1000 rounds, $2.88/20, + tax.

You can purchase Wolf 55gr and 62 gr today delivered for $108-$115/1000. See the Ammo Price List tacked at the beginning of this forum.
