I do TWO things with my AR15.  Target shooting, and plinking.

I'm looking for ammo that fits these purposes.  I'm not into counting grains, or penetrating a particular armor.  I want cheap, non-jamming plinking ammo.

Where's the best place (with a good price) to get basic simple ammo like this?  On line?  Wade's?  Federal Way Discount Guns?  WSI?  (just kidding.)  

Seriously.  Where can I buy a big box of ammo for cheap that can reduce big blocks of ice out in the pits to crushed ice without blowing away too much dough?

Hey I got a case of that Maine Cartridge Company stuff I beleive its called from James at a WAC show and it seemed to be pretty decent for plinking ammo. This is reloaded ammo, so I was little gunshy so to speak but I wouldn't hesitate to get another case especially at $129 out the door...

I get my ammo from SurplusAmmo.com, specifically I love the Black Hills blue box.  Best price I've seen.

I pretty much buy ALL my ammo from James.  I was hesitent about that MCC stuff he had too but I shot 50 rounds without any problems.  Might pick up a case next month.  He usually has several differant options to shoose from.  I just load up on 5.56, 7.62X39, .308 and 9mm once a month or so at the WAC show and I'm set.

The next show is in Puyallup on Jan 3rd and 4th.  AnthonyJ, I recommend you go give James a visit!


edited because I've never heard of "73.62" before!

Why ask Why??

Ammoman XM-193 $199-1000 shipped
Wholesale Hunter XM-193 $163-1000 shipped
(At least to me)

They are both great vendors, so service wasn't the issue.

Seriously you can't go wrong with Wolf. I've shot well over a 1000rds through my AR and I haven't had a single problem. Also done 500rds of XM193 some blackhills as well. All worked fine. Personally I like cheap

For Cheap, i'd go with Wolf also. No problems with it on this end. It's around $70 per 1000
