Guys,

I've got a BCM 16" Mid 1:7. I've been purchasing about 1,000 rounds of Lake City XM193 from either CTD, Natchezss, or Midway as I need it. The objective is target shooting and plinking. I don't tend to buy the XM193BK or PK cause I don't like the extra dings. I do collect the brass for reloading.

I heard a while back that XM193 hasn't been produced in a while and is likely to be discontinued. Well yesterday I went look for some ammo I expect to have to replace after this weekend. Looks like XM193 is gone on most websites. I can only find it on Nathezss and its only bulk packaging.

So here is the question:

1) Does anyone know if a website is still selling the 200/500/1000 round cases which are packaged in the 20 round boxes?

or

2) Should I accept the fact its gone and look for something else? I've head the XM855 performs better in my 1:7 twist. But didn't the military just transition to XM855mk2? Won't I just be trading one going away military surplus type for another? Should I just buy the commerical Federal American Eagle cause its nearly the same thing?

Again, the objective is 1) Cheap, 2) Target Plinking, 3) SHTF stockpile, 4) Reloading capable.

Thanks

PS. I'm not putting Wolf through the gun.

God Bless The Mauser

http://ammoman.com/index.htm has some XM193

M855 will be more accurate in a 1:7 twist. I just ordered 1k rounds from AIM for $300.
