Sportsman's Warehouse in Roseville has some cheap 223 reloaded stuff in stock, soft point 50 rounds a box mixed brass. I bought 2 boxes of it & had problems getting the rounds to chamber in both my uppers and my bolt 223. One upper is a "wylde" chamber, so I don't think it's because it's 5.56 brass or whatever. So if you happen to shop there be wary of the cheap 223 in a little orange box.

I bought a few boxes a couple weeks ago for $11.99 for box of 50 and it functioning nicely in my bushmaster carbine and is more accurate than American Eagle. But my was loaded with 55 grn FMJ bullet.

little orange box sounds like HSM.

Yeah, this stuff is Soft Point loaded with LC (lake city?) brass of several different years along with W-C-? (Winchester brass?).

I don't want to say what I had to do to get the cartridge out, suffice to say I"m surprised I didn't break anything :eek:
