What's a good plinking ammo for the M&P Sport II? I'll be breaking it in with 50-100yd targets. I know some ranges by me check ammo with magnets. I bought a box of 55gr Federal .223 for $0.40/rnd locally at Walmart. Is there a better deal to be had or is that pretty decent? Not looking to stock pile too crazy. Max 500 rounds.

I'd recommend Wolf Gold (as will many others). You can get it shipped for about 30 to 35 cents per round depending on which online source you use.

Default Cabelas sale on 223/556 $.31-$.34 a round mutliple brands.

If have recently picked up a rifle and are trying to determine what plinking ammo it shoots best Cabelas has a ton of specials this weekend with 10% off and free shipping over $99.

This a a great opportunity to pick up a couple hundred rounds of multiple brands for your new rifle. PPU, IMI, PMC, Norma and Armscor. Only quality plinking rounds missing from the list are AE and Wolf Gold. I personally like the IMI and PPU at this price.

The Norma TAC USA is also intriguing at $7.49 before the discount. I believe this has the ULM proofhouse stamp on the brass which would mean its made in Germany. They are owned by RAUG who makes high quality ammo in Switzerland, Germany and Hungry under various brand names like RWS, Geco, Raug, Norma etc...

They all are selling for $6.99 to $7.19 per 20 rounds. You can mix and match to get your self over the $99 and get it shipped free. For example 300 rounds of IMI 55Gr 223 for $7.19 a box. 15 boxes ends up being $97.05 shipped!

Mass Ammo has a similar deal that ends today. 500 rounds of AE 5.56 XM193 for $ 175 and free shipping. I picked up 500, pretty good price for XM193.

Oh, and PMC X-Tac 5.56 is South Korean military NATO rounds in retail boxes. Also decent stuff. Pusan Munitions Corporation IIRC.

Perfecta is available locally here in NC at Wally World. $14.94 for a box of 50. $15.94 with tax so $.32 a round. Not bad for lower volume purchasing of brass cased 55gr ammo.

I still think that Wolf for $300+ shipping for 1000 is a better ammo if you can buy in larger lots but for those who are picking up 223 in smaller lots.

Your price at Wally World might vary. There were about 20 boxes at my local Wally World.

I usually buy it at Cabelas, and get PMC, IMI, or similar both .223 and 5.56 for about 6.79-6.99 a box, and I recently got some M855 green tip for 7.99 a box for 20 rounds. I forget what brand though...

I'm getting close to needing another 1000 rds, anyone spotted any good deals on 55gr or 62gr rounds? I'm watching ammoseek but they don't always have the discounts and rebates listed.

Darn, sale over, that was a great deal.

They are advertising M855 IMI 910 rounds with ammo can for $269 at SGAmmo. Still, a really good price.

Academy has an auto 10% off discount, free shipping over 25 bucks. Plus today's code gives and additional discount, CC201820PCT. Comes up to a total of 28% off your order.

If you use active junky, you get a 5% cash back as well. Just use the following link to create an active junky account, you get cash back quarterly by check, or you can have it deposited in your PayPal account(what I do).

Active Junky

Once on active junky, search academy, click shop now, it takes you to academy sports, do your shopping and check out. Takes a couple hours for your purchase to register with active junky.

If you use the active junky link I provide, we'll both get 10.00 cash back when checks are paid out.

I bought some ammo from academy, 28% off free shipping. You enter the academy code when you view your cart on academy, not during checkout.

No Independence is not "Israeli Military Industries NATO production rounds". First NATO rounds are 62 grain perpetrator not 55 grain and second Independence is loaded with Federal supplied cases and I think bullets not IMI produced. Also IMI has a history of producing over pressure rounds, some early lots of Independence suffered from this and even some Lot's of IMI branded loads do also. Most IMI ammo is really good stuff but every now and then they release over pressured stuff, I would always test their ammo before depending on it.

You might want to notify NATO HQ that M193 55 grain FMJ rounds don't exist then. Will probably create quite a stir in the Quartermaster's office.

I worked for Olin in the 90's and General Dynamics in the 2000s. IMI got their machines from us.

I really like Ammo Valley. Good sales and affordable shipping costs (usually free)

Love PSA but that's about average. Check out...

1) Walmart (seriously)
2) LuckyGunner
3) Ammunition Depot
4) SG Ammo
5) LAX Ammo

Those are my top five. It all depends on what you want and plinking ammo (non steel core) is cheap these days. Stock up while you can.

Sportsmanís Outdoor super store
SOSS
also has great sales occasionally

I bought Police trade in Hornady 75gr Hollow points for 24 cents a round.

Came in an unopened case direct from Hornady and addressed to Detroit PD.

Default Tula .223 Ammo

There hasn't been a post here since May 2019 on ammunition so I guess everyone is stocked up!!

Seriously it's hard to find USA name brand ammo on any site or in local stores. I bought some local Montana reloads by "Granite Ammunition" that the shop owner said was "the best, you'll like it", at 84 cents a round.

All I could easily find online was TulAmmo (Russian) in steel case that runs about 78 cents a round including shipping. (Brass cased TulAmmo is on back order). Is this stuff any good? I'll probably be shooting the reload ammo first, but am curious about this Russian ammo and your experience with it. Thanks.

Tom

I found it rather strange myself, no 5.56/223 here in Central Obamastan, my supply is dwindling rapidly as

"I can't help myself", I got to have some "trigger time", I'm building a Wilson small frame billet, I am very seriously considering opting for the 300 HAM'R by Wilson as they have lots and lots of ammo, some very reasonable, and some very kool pricey stuff...

Caliber conversion is barrel only... does do best with 300 Blackout mags...

Buy the Tulammo, I swore I would NEVER use steel case commie ammo, but my gun runs it like nobody's business, it does open up your groups, and my aluminum case ASC mags will NOT feed it, my single steel ASC loves it... so try it out, you may be pleasantly surprised as I was, but even that's gone now.

on a more positive note, there's enough 6.5 Creed in Central Obamastan to build a stairway to heaven, theoretically anyway..

I may build a 6.5 Creed top end for Miss Wilson, she's a nice chick and deserves lots of love and attention!

I guess if you need it. Sure would take the fun out of shooting targets though at a buck a shot for me.

Default Fair deal at Academy

I'm totally new here... first off hello to everyone.
I found last week for any of you that have an Academy Sports nearby they refuse to raise ammo prices.
Although out of stock at the moment just last week I picked up 2 boxes of PMC Bronze 55 grain BT for $11.99 a box.
While they refuse to gouge ammo prices they do have a strict limit. 2 boxes per person per day. Still fair I think at that price.
I'm new enough I haven't read all of the rule just yet. If adding a URL is allowed I will gladly add to their URL for ammo prices.
