.223 & 7.69 ammo are available at normal prices if you are willing to be patient
Yes it is steel cased TulAmmo but it was 5.27 for .223 and $5.17 for 7.62x39.
I go to walmart 2 times a week the days their truck comes in. I also found Federal .22lr for $22 for 550 rds two weeks ago
You have to be patient and persistent and you can still find ammo at good prices!
