Quoting this from 3-12 just to compare. Found American .223 50gr varmit tipped at WallyWorld today, limit of 3 20round boxes for 11.87 each. I bought 'em, the only I've found anywhere in a month. Even WM charging almost twice what they were less than a year ago.

That is, IF I get it.

EDIT: Got maximum allowed (3 boxes) of American 50gr varmit tipped at WallyWorld yesterday. $11.87 each. Twice what they were 6 weeks ago. Better than nothing. Will probably go back for 3 more today (if any are left) while waiting for my Cabela's order.

I have seen several posts on here about ammo being in stock (Wally World) then when you get to the store it is gone. It has also been mentioned that they do not always update their website or do not contact you when stock is available. Well the "Ammo Gods" were smiling down upon me this morning ..... I was up early (5 o'clock-ish) cause I couldn't sleep, so I fired up the puter and started to check emails, low & behold I received an email from Wally World stating that they had Federal 223 55gr FMJ 100ct in stock so I proceeded to get my butt in gear. I arrived at the store within minutes and made my way to the sporting goods dept. only to find no body around . I looked on the ammo shelves and they were bare , so I began to look for some help (no one around) , the only alternative was to look through the stock my self. To my amazement, sitting there in a stock cart was one box of 200rds. so I snatched it up and made my way to the check out ...... Mission Accomplished, 200rds @ $53.78 = 0.27 cents per rd.

edit; My ammo mission turned to disaster After returning home I hid my stash in the gun room until I had an opportune moment to check it out, so today Sun. while my GF was cleaning I snuck into my gun room to inspect my newly acquired ammo and to my dismay when I opened the one box IT WAS 20 GAUGE SHOT GUN SHELLS! So from now on I will pay STRICT ATTENTION before I grab a box of ammo off of the stock cart.

At the WallyWorld I went to, there was NO ammo at all in the display case. You have to ask someone to check under the counter. I asked for .223 and it was there, got the three box limit. Wish I'd asked now for 5.56 to see if they had that.

And I feel for ya, I also pulled a box of SG shells from the counter, paid and left. Got home, they were 20 gauge instead of 12 gauge, and of course WW don't take ammo back for any reason.

I'm in the process of building my first AR-15. In the meantime I've been looking for ammo anytime I'm close to a gun store, Walmart, etc. What I'm finding is the price per round approaching $.90 - $1. I live in Sacramento where city regulations prohibit buying ammo online. Even in city limits I have to show ID and finger print to purchase.

Since I'm new to buying 5.56/.223 ammo can I get an idea on a fair price to pay. At a dollar per round I haven't bought anything yet. Also, is there 5.56/.223 ammo specific for personal defense verses ammo just for plinking? Thanks!

With the craze going on right now, get what you can or wait it out. I bought 200 rounds at $1 a round, but I wanted some ammo on hand. Now I'm waiting it out, but I have some if needed.

I really hate seeing people paying $1 a round when there are good deals still to be had. NOBODY should have to pay more then 50 cents a round tops if they're willing to spend some time and shop.
As an example, two big retailers both dropped lots of .223/5.56 in the past week for 50 cents or less so you don't have to go and search for some obscure mom and pop shop to find a good deal.

Thumbs up SCORE!!!!!

After several failed attempts & one wrong purchase I was finally able to score some Federal Value Pack .223 ammo .... I have had Wally-World on my radar for a few months but every time they had some .223 ammo in stock somehow I missed out , so early this morning (03-09) after receiving an email alert from WW that they had said ammo in stock again I immediately got dressed and made my way over to the one local WW. Upon arrival I made my way to the sporting goods dept. only to find the shelves bare so I looked around for some assistance and luckily found the asst. manager and told him what I was looking for, he gave me a wave of his hand to follow him so off we went. As he disappeared in to the back stock area I waited with anticipation ... he soon returned pushing a shopping cart loaded with ammo then asked if this is what I was looking for, with a big grin on my face I said Yes It Is (I felt like a little kid in a candy store) so off to the check out we went and now I have 300 rds. of Federal .223 ammo .... Will be at the LGR next week to try out my new SPR (Sport Utility Rifle) FYI, the total cost for 300 rds. was $111.20 w/tax so that works out to be about $0.37 a rd.

They sold out about an hour after I posted it. All they have listed now is 30-06 at that price. Lasted longer than I thought.

Just as a baseline for comparison, Cabela's was selling PMC .223 Bronze (brass), 20 round boxes for 5.99 with FREE shipping as recent as last October. There was no limit.... ;-)

I wouldn't panic. Supplies and prices are already beginning to stabilize and beginning to head back to normal.

In fact, it's probably just the panic buying that's keeping the prices up there.
Many have already said this.

Thanks to you guys, I just snagged 500 rounds for $176 shipped.

That's 35 cents a round for 5.56 which is great.

I have a total of 40 rounds (not a typo, forty) right now. My new AR has never been shot yet. I need ammo in a bad way!

Forgive me if this has beren copvered somewhere before, but I can not find it. I have a M&P S&W 15. I was told by LGS that I can shoot .223 or 5.56 out of it. The4n I read posts where a AR blew up and they ask were you firing 5.56 or .223 from it. So my question is can it indeed fire both rounds interchangeable and what would the difference be if they are both loaded the same or if using factory loads. I have both rounds, and a bit paranoid on firing it with what other than is stamped the barrel.

As long as the barrel is stamped for 5.56NATO, it should be fine for either.
.223 Remington vs. 5.56 NATO: What You Don't Know Could Hurt You | Conservative News, Views & Books

Some barrels stamped .223 may not handle 5.56.

In the paperwork and on the box, my M&P15 OR says .223, while the barrel is stamped 5.56.

I finally received conformation today (03/25) that my order from Cabela's for the Remington UMC value pack (.223 W/dry box 400 rds.) has officially been cancelled due to the fact they don't know when they will be getting any product in. ..... I placed this order at the end of Dec. so all this time I have not ordered any ammo else where due to the pending order from Cabela's.

Foxeye,

If your barrel or lower say 5.56, you are fine to use both 5.56 or .223 Rem. If it says .223, DO NOT use 5.56 in the gun.

The lower?

I don't think this can possibly be right. Barrels can be switched faster than I can change my socks.

The barrel is stamped with the round it fires, not the lower.

Same thing happened to me with Cabelas, I do have 3 more orders on backorder and waiting for them to be canceled due to low price.

Some AR makers do indeed put the caliber on the lower. I admit you don't see it very often, but they are out there.

It's true, but having it on the lower can't really be a good indicator without double checking the barrel since uppers can be switched so easily. I use a 22lr, 223, and blackout on mine.

WalMart in Anderson, SC on 28 Bypass has 10 to 12 boxes of Tula .223 in stock on the shelf for less than 6.00 box. Manager said they only received 14 to 16 boxes this a.m. Not selling very fast today for some reason.

LGS is selling 500 rounds for $270 and 1000 rounds for $595. The 500 rounds come in a typical GI ammo can. The rounds are Federal and Lake City. They have stacks of them in the store. I know its not the cheapest but its rounds none the less. Only ammo they do not have is in the .22LR and .22WMR size. Tons of everything else. I looked at the sticker on a 500 rnd can of ammo on stripper clips (5.56 Lake City) I bought last year and it was only $20 different than what they want today for the same stuff. A company on FB is selling 1000 round "tins" for $799 plus shipping for some import junk. Montgomery, Alabama is the area and Walter Craig is the LGS.

And I feel for ya, I also pulled a box of SG shells from the counter, paid and left. Got home, they were 20 gauge instead of 12 gauge, and of course WW don't take ammo back for any reason.
Why is the ammo under the counter & not on display? Smells fishy, like it's being hid for someone to get at a later time.

Hello. Have you seen any M&P 15's new around here? Greenville maybe? Was hunting a new one and can't really find any online that aren't inflated. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I picked up a few thousand rounds of PMC Bronze from Cabelas back in October at 25 cents per round DELIVERED.

At the time I felt I was going overboard a bit....then the elections happened. Looking back I can only smile.

So I can't knock them.

Timing really is everything.

I've had good luck with Armslist (ARMSLIST - New Jersey Gun Classifieds) if you can't find someone local, expand the search to other states. The ammo is out there, just gotta be persistent.

I got lucky (finally) and picked up 4 boxes of the Black Hills
MK262 77 gr. OTM ammo. So i have 200 rounds to be delivered
next day or two. Anybody out there shot any of this stuff lately
and with what twist barrel ? It's going to be longer range coyote
