Default Need some .223/5.56 ammo, fast.

I've got a shooting date with my uncle next Friday and just realized I'm totally out of 5.56 and that's all I shoot. I looked around online, but I couldn't find anyone who could for sure ship it by then without it costing almost as much as the ammo. Just bought my first Nightforce and I'm going for groups, so preferably something a little more accurate for a 1:7 barrel at 100 yards.

Any suggestions for where to find ammo fast? I'm in San Jose and will totally do a private sell too.

Lots of retail locations sell 5.56 not hard to find.

Try Ammosupplywarehouse.com. They have plenty of 5.56 and process orders quickly. They ship from Las Vegas. Arrives here in 2-days. Shipping is very reasonable.

The only reason I wanted to avoid local if I could is because they jack the price up exorbitantly and usually don't stock precision ammo or anything heavier than 62 grains

You want fast, you gotta buy local, pay the price.
Then figure out what works and stock up on line. BTW if you are averse to visiting your local retailers, you had best stock up big in the next 4 months...

How much do you need? I might help you out at a fair price if you're not looking for too much.

So you are trying to see if you can find someone to reload some and sell it to you at a discounted price?

I am not sure I understand the question here.

LGS in a pinch usually has "some"...

https://www.sportsmansguide.com/prod...o-can?a=862719
$49+ order says free shipping, but it might be time to get into reloading, especially if you only shoot one caliber... before the end of the year when you might not be able to get reloading gear... ... ...

DANG! $0.539/ea (after tax)?

That is about $0.086 more PER ROUND than the 420 can I posted (assuming the free shipping and no tax), but that is retail, and in a pinch you gots ta do what you gots ta do...

OP, might I suggest .223, rather than 5.56 for cost savings? ($0.39/rd, not including tax):

Big 5 has hornady match ammo if you're looking for target grade stuff. It's going to be 2x-3x as much as your mil surp ammo though.

Where in San Jose? Check the big 5 on the San Jose milpitas border right off 680. I think the exit is 237-calaveras.

OP, Check out Castello's in Willow Glen on Tuesday (He's closed till then.)
He often has very good prices on case lots.

Plus-- Is Federal still offering that rebate? That can save you $.05 per round

Good, fast, cheap; you can usually get 2 out of 3, but not all 3.
