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:

223 Bbullets
NOTE: Brownells’ has 55gr V-Max projectiles right now for $39.99 for 250. That’s almost as inexpensive as generic M193s.
