Seems high when you can get a 20 round box of the Remington at Walmart for $6.88 or so, unless someone places a premium on the Q3131.

Reference 5.56 & .223 Ammo.

Iíve spent many a post explaining my two bits about the price and availability of decent 5.56 / .223 ammo. My definition of ďdecentĒ is Federal XM193 5.56mm, AE223, Winchester Q3131A & Q3131.

Sometimes I feel like Noah & the Ark. Smart folks and even his neighbors made fun of him when he was building that big boat on dry land. Everybody had a good laugh at his expense. I bet those same folks were the first ones banging on the door, when it wouldnít quit raining.

Iíve been telling friends for a while now, to buy ammo by the case when they find a good deal. Properly stored, it will last for many, many years & the price is never going get any cheaper IMHO. Plus I honestly believe that in the not so distance future, itís availability might be very, very limited / restricted.

I check 5.56 / .223 ammo prices several times a day at all the big online dealers. No good news in sight. I think the prices you talking about are from ODM. Bottom line, do I think itís a good price on 1000rds of Winchester Q3131? Yes. Sad but true, itís the best deal I can find right now. If anybody knows of a better deal (donít forget shipping, local, state & fed. taxes), on the same ammo, please share the information / location/ link.

P.SÖ..The noise you hear outside, sounds like itís starting to rain.

See below. FYIÖ.Most of these prices were when the venders sold out NOT current stock. .

I completely agree. Only until recently I would forego on new firearms purchases and put that money towards ammo for the calibers I already own. What good are firearms without ammo? IMO, A few rifles and ~10k of ammo is a whole lot better than 12 rifles and ~1k of ammo. Besides, in a shtf situation, ammo will be a better currency than cash, again just my opinion.
