Your employer wouldn't like to hire a few more employees would he? Just bought 2K AE223 online for $406 delivered and thought that was a good deal. Good shooting!!

Yes indeed, I recently paid $3.50/box at Bi-Mart, regularly $4.00/box, for the same ammo.

fatboy,



It's good ammo, I've shot 7 or 8 thousand rounds without a single problem. It has good terminal ballistics for .223. It's one of several rounds on our approved for duty list.....and fairly accurate and consistant.

Sent you an email.....If it's LEO related could you provide me with a source? Thanks

for $147 a case I would consider it the best ammo out there. I don't think anyone here can get it anywhere near that low and even though it's not my first choice of ammo it is a very good ammo and I would buy a ton of it at that price.

I'm getting tired of always being jealous of you lucky BASTAGES!!

Aaaaaahhhhhhhhh! 73.50 for a 500 rnd case? Man the hate is on big time.

Same ammo, I,m paying $5.50 a box! Thats 137.50!

I have been wondering if this was good ammo. I bought some to try with my BM .223 pistol with the new 11.5" barrel. At first it would not fire. The store/range thought the ammo was not chambering completely. They lubricated it and we got a few rds to fire and not fire. After that I shot 40 rds without a problem. The lubrication and firing seemed to eliminate the problem.
