Did I get ripped at 100 bucks including tax and shipping?

That's not bad, not too high or low IMO.

My case came from Lake City, I was told that is the better factory. they make the M193... I think I paid more than a hundred bucks though. Isn't the real stuff getting scarce and/or expensive?

But what the hell do I know?

Once, there was this great place called AR15.com that had incredible technical forums where you could easily find this kind of information. Hell, sometimes the threads with really good information, like current ammo prices, were even tacked and updated on a regular basis.

LC does NOT make M193 anymore. LC makes M855.

Read the ammo oracle and the ammo forum if you want info on this

I'm still kicking myself that I didn't buy another five or six thousand rounds of American Eagle 55gr .223 when it was $2.99/box (plus shipping) in 2004. Man, that sucks. It's gone up almost a dollar a box since then and shipping has gone up, too.

My XM193 case is maybe a year old, and is stamped Lake City... Every round so far has been a winner.

I spent an afternoon at the range last year testing the different brands of .223 I had for accuracy. Strangely enough, the XM193 wasn't as accurate as my PMP (South African) or AE (Federal).

Go figure.

I see why my case cost more, it had 1000 rounds, not 500.
