I joined for the 1st time a swarm purchase called "Inexpensive .223 or 5.56mm Ammo".

A brief description of the swarm:
Any type of NEW ammo, either commercial production OR military bulk surplus ammunition from a reputable NATO or 1st world country.

You can check it out by going to this url:
http://www.eswarm.com/index.php?module=swarm&action=view&swarmId=212

Each quantity is for 1 box with a thousand rounds. So if you want 25000rds, order 25 boxes.

If you don't know what a swarm is, or how it works, read this:

http://www.eswarm.com/index.php?module=howitworks

You have to sign up to make this work. You can't just say "I want 25 boxes" to me. The suppliers need to see the number on eSwarm.( 1st time i,ve heard of this Eswarm thought i'd give it a try and see if this thing pans out and pass it along to you guys. Don,t PM me on this or ask me questions go to the website see for yourself just passing on the info given to me.)

Hope this works out. Joined for two cases. Is there a way to update that? I thought about it and figured I should have chosen 4. :cool:

Can't hurt to try. :D Just made another order for two cases since I couldn't figure out how to edit my previous one.

Not sure I would sell, but if you head down to Metcalf, I'm sure we could figure out a way to use the rounds with our ARs.

No money up front. When deal goes through, you have to pay.

Second thought theres another swarm out of Canada for .223 with over 1000 orders and no bids as of yet but their setting the price at $105.I really don't think this thing will pan out after all for one ammo prices are through the roof why would a ammo dealer,importer need to look for business on the internet as you can see on all the ammo dealers website the stuff flys of the shelves no need for a eswarm maybe when we of if we pull out of Iraq prices will drop with demand from the military dewindles a bit.Sorry guys for getting this BS going up in here im going to stay in and see what happens.

How do you know if it is brass & non-steel core? How do you deal with shipping? What is the recourse for an deal gone bad?

Maybe it was a bust because the asking price was about 60% below what anyone is actually selling a 1000 rnd case of 5.56 for?
