I'm buying an AR soon, and would like some reference on what a "reasonable" cost is for ammo.
Also, once your all set up for reloading, what's the cost of ammo?
I nabbed 3 20 round boxes of "independence" XM193(1?) ammo today, for 13 bucks a box. It's imported from Israel apparently.
The sun is starting to come through the clouds I guess, because the store I went to actually had a decent selection of ammo in stock... Prices? Not so much i think.
545 bucks for a box of 1000 rounds of federal xm193?!
200 rounds of remington pmc 223 for what, 145 dollars?
I checked around online, and everything everywhere is still out of stock but the prices seem more decent.
On a side note, I've been finding some decent deals lately.
Tulammo 10.97 a box of 50 at walmart.
Some other 9mm 13 bucks or so for a box of 50 at walmart. (brass case ammo)
A box of 25 rounds of 12g 00 buck for 22 dollars.
And aforementioned 5.56 ammo.
A far cry from this crap. http://www.cheaperthandirt.com/product/AMM-464
49.59 for 50 rounds of aluminum blazer ammo?!
