I just picked up some of PSA's last batch of M193 at $6.99 per 20rnd box. Seems like everywhere is average $360 per 1K for M193 and about $315 for .223 plinker. I don't think you'll be able to find a so called good deal right now, unfortunately :(

Since you ordered it, they already jacked the price up an extra $10. Just added one to cart, trying to see how much the shipping is, Firefox shows "This Connection is Untrusted...site's identity can't be verified."

I cant believe how much XM193 has gotten and how scarce its becoming. Just like 7 months ago i picked 1000 rounds of XM193 from Glens Outdoors for 290 shipped! Id be lucky to get some for 350 now. Lol

I usually get all of my ammo from SGAmmo. Absolutely great people to do business with. But all of their XM193 is out of stock.

Just got my shipment of 1000 rounds of Federal Lake City from unammo for 380.00

Jeez, I bought 5k rounds of PMC .223 just two months ago at $279.00 per 1k. Today SG Ammo, who usually has good prices, was advertising the same ammo at $349.00. This is getting ridiculous. Hopefully supplies will come back sooner than the election and the costs will get back into line, that is a huge increase. I got 1k of XM193 from a shop in Texas for $329.00 just a month ago.

Reloading is beginning to look viable for 5.56.

it's sux when people think .38-.40 per round (plus tax) is a good deal...

I have quite a bit of .223 and 5.56 (never enough of course)... but in the past I've always invited friends to range - shoot my ammo... now I'm gonna hafta find a polite way to limit the use :(

It's a sad day when friends offer to pay for ammo use and you have to hoard it like a crack-head :facepalm:

Most of the online sources are even out of Russian 223

I heard Walmarts are taking down people's Driver License #. Anyone had this experience? I have a friend this happened to.
