    I went out to run some loads over the chrony and while out there I ran some
    AE 223 Tac over it as well as I just picked up some at Cabelas $6.95 per box!
    I had shot some red box AE and wasn't to impressed with it.

    See below target shot at 100yds- wind was quite heavy 15-20 mph! So considering not a bad group!:supergrin: This AE ammo is definately better then the red box alot more consistant in velocity!

    Yep prices are coming down and the selves are getting full again! Went looking for XM193 5.56mm all they had was .223 Rem? Solved that problem -ordered 1000 rnds online ! Had a couple of boxes but no one is getting any locally! Cause my AR definately loves the XM193!:supergrin:
