Finally ready to replenish my ammo supply after waiting for the last 1.5 years for the ammo prices to come back down...I was getting low :eek:

Makes me feel retarded for paying 380$ a case for 223.

Well I ordered a case to try, that would have been a great price for brass case 62g .223 even before the election....

Makes me feel retarded for paying 380$ a case for 223.

Yeah - I was stocked up pretty good before the ammo scare and so I haven't bought any for the last year and a half because I didn't want to get gouged. $380 wasn't too bad, I remember seeing people paying $440 for the same stuff that was $340 months before.

they have federal xm855 for same price (6.99 a box). Wouldn't that be better than the PMC? It doesn't look like they have a case discount though like with the PMC so it is a little more for 1000.

I don't know....I've never had a problem with the American Eagle XM855, but this PMC says that it's M855, not XM855 so that's why I want to try it out and see if it's more consistent than the XM

The PMC is usually a bit weaker than most other brands as far as powder charge goes. For $340 it is a good deal considering a case of .223 is going for $350 shipped.
