Default Best Online Price for 5.56 Ammo?

In the everlong quest to find inexpensive 5.56 ammo I have scoured the Internet.

I think the best price I've found for 5.56 is in the form of the Federal 420 round cans for $149.99 from Target Sports USA (Ships Free).

http://www.targetsportsusa.com/p-301...wammo-can.aspx

Anyone have a better option they care to post about?

I would love to support California businesses but between shipping costs and tax, it doesnt make sense.

Any input is much appreciated.

I'm also looking for 5.56 but in something heavier than 55 gr and NOT green or Orange tipped...

I wouldn't consider it inexpensive until you start talking about it being under $.30/round, including shipping/handling/tax, etc. Here's an example of my latest buy, but there's plenty of cheaper sources out there.

I buy on sale at Cabela's (on line or in store) and never pay more than $6 per 20 (plus tax, but no shipping as I wait for their free shipping sales). You can also buy from Miwal at the gun shows for similar price (always under $6.50/20 unless youre buying green tips).

AmmoToGo would be my first choice... only site I've found with prices I agree with.

http://www.ammunitiontogo.com/index....e-ammo-223-556


They had a mil-spec section yesterday, but it disappeared today. No idea why. You can still find the same stuff if you search through FMJ, Ballistic, etc...

Best deal for the green tip with FREE SHIPPING no tax, Turners in Long Beach has these guys on sale for $179.99 plus tax so $149.99 to my door is a $50 savings.. They also have Federal Ammunition 5.56x45mm M193 55 Grain Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail Case of 500 (25 Boxes of 20) with FREE SHIPPING for $167.25 which is also a good deal.. Almost 1000 rounds of great ammo for only $317.00 is not bad..
