Weekly Ammo: 02/26/2015

ammo

Week 42.

So, despite the panic runs on M855 it looks like all non M855 is holding fine–I’m not seeing much difference in pricing for lowest in caliber for .223 Rem.

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. His latest venture is as one of the founders of IronSights.com; a search engine for all things gun related. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

    I have proof read, and approve your grammar. B+ 🙂

  • Defiant

    Nearly all the “good deal” 223’s are already out-of-stock…

  • Bigstoreemployee

    Working at a big pop shop, I have seen a run on all things inexpensive rifle cartridges. All 223/556 and 7.62×39 is almost if not already sold out in this big store in Hillsboro OR.

  • Fernando Urrutia

    Local Stores are out of .223, I think that I have only see one (1) box of .223 Federal at WlMrt yesterday… I have not check really deep online but at least Brownells is showing out of stock on .223 AR American Eagle (inexpensive and good for going to the range and practice) A few boxes of hunting grade still on the shelves ($19 per 20)…

  • Grindstone50k

    Is there a way to weed out steel-case and such from the data?

  • tacobravo

    At Academy Sports most of the .223 & 5.56 are mostly sold out

    • Zachary marrs

      My local academy is out of all federal 5.56, both m193 and xm855, but most other brands in 20 round boxes are still there

  • Mark N.

    I started following links. Alamo Ammo is now selling for $173 for 500 rounds of TulAmmo .223, up from $145. Bulk Ammo is sold out, as Cheaper Than Dirt and a few others. I went to one (small) chain store here in northern California, and other than some boxes of premium target and hunting ammo (app a buck a round), the shelves were bare. I was going to buy some from Freedom Ammo (mail order), but they are sold out of their 62 gr. fmj.
