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!

Palmetto State Armory currently has American Eagle FMJ 55-grain boxes of 150 rounds for $50, and their D&H/MAGPUL black teflon aluminum 30rd mags are currently $8.99 ($7.99 ea. for 20 or more). I got half a dozen mags and two boxes of ammo and it's only $15 shipping to PA.

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.

Independence 5.56 NATO loads are likely reboxed Israeli Military Industries NATO production rounds. GOOD stuff.

IMI is using machinery from Winchester/Olin

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.
