I recently built my first ar and opted for the 5.56 chamber.

with the lack of 5.56.

do yo guys think if we did a group buy so to speak for 5.56 ammo and approached

remington, federal, winchester or black hills with an large order they would fill it.

does anyone manage a retail store that stocks ammo?

i think we could easily order 100 thousand rounds.

just a thought.

I'd be interested in a few K.

From my understanding, it's been tried before and it was a disaster.

folks arguing over which bullet length/weight.

bullet type BTHP, OTM, FMJ.

to crimp the case neck or not.

to crimp the primer pocket or not.

a bullet cannelure or not.

at what velocity they should chrono at.

etc. etc. etc.

I believe HSM, kind of did a "group buy" type deal here. From what I read in the resulting thread, it was a nightmare for HSM and some of the members here.

I'd be in for a couple cases if it was plinking ammo (not match grade stuff).

And if that was the case (plinking/SHTF ammo) we can go with something that everyone can shoot/likes like 5.56 55gr FMJ or something.

I would think that if you keep it simple...like FMJ ammo only, there would be any room for BS. Either participate or don't...

Please contact Sr. Staff about group buys. This doesn't belong in the ammo forum though. Sorry.
