Steve says: Sorry y’all, this is a few days late, my fault not Tom’s.

Week 45.

.223 Rem seems to be stabilizing after the scare–a short term run that didn’t really tax manufacturing capabilities. What seemed a little more odd this week is that .22LR is creeping up again. Most places are $0.12/rd and greater (which is silly). Other prices and calibers seem to be generally holding prices and availability.

We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will continue this article series as long as it is productive.

As always, if you have comment or witticisms, please leave them below. And if you find that some of the items are now out of stock or the prices have significantly changed, please let the other readers know. Also, if you know of any vendors that are not represented here and you have had a good experience with, comment below and we will see about adding them.

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 think you put in a semicolon too early.

  • whoisgage

    The column headers appear to be missing.

  • Cedar_92

    Could you guys add 5.45×39 to this series.

    • Chad Lincoln

      I agree, .223 is widely used, BUT so is 5.45 and many of us with 5.56 can.t shoot 223 reliably. Please, add a col when you can. this service is very useful and I’m making purchases as a result of your work.
