I’m just a plinker and casual target shooter but I tend to go through about 5K rounds a year of 223. As a result I try to buy 223 bullets in bulk. I shoot 55gr FMJBT (M193) almost exclusively. I understand that the US Army uses 62gr ammo exclusively and so the 55gr may become harder to find in bulk. The days of being able to buy mil-surp pulled bulk 223 bullets for $50/thousand are long gone, unfortunately.
The following people have .223 bullets / projectiles for reloading in stock as of 6/26/2014:
NOTE: Brownells’ has 55gr V-Max projectiles right now for $39.99 for 250. That’s almost as inexpensive as generic M193s.
|The Bullet Works (Note 1)||Yes|
|ET Brass Ammo||Yes|
Note 1: Over the past 2-3 years I’ve personally bought and shot several thousand rounds of .223 55gr FMJ projectiles from The Bullet Works and have been very pleased with them
