Looking into buying .223 bulk ammo. Pricing on BVAC is looking good. I've personally never shot nor heard good or bad experiences with it. Anyone here shoot with it?

at .37 each for 500. I'm sure there are better deals out there for brass ammo. cheapest i seen it was 184 for 500 rounds +shipping.

Yeah i'm seeing around $170 + shipping on back order. I need 62gr. 55gr. Isn't flying as well out of my gun. I haven't really found any better pricing than that.

Yes I'm kinda set on brass.

Always best to test the ammo and see how your rifle likes it before making a bulk purchase.

Unless your plinking that is.....The steel case ammo is good for that,and your AR should chew it up fine as long as you have a decent AR that is.....Just watch your extractor......

True just not a fan of shoot crappy ammo out of it, or spending that much in bulk. Would much rather just spend extra putting decent stuff through it.

I am with you there.....I don't run bargain bin uppers so I damn sure don't run bargain bin steel case ammo through them either....

I'm just having a very hard time find 62 gr in .223 which is leading me to this ammo. Is there a big difference between .223 and 5.56? My Rock River will shoot it.

Palmetto state has the best prices on ammo right now. PMC 223 which is pretty hot @3200fps and my plinking round is 6.49 a box and FREE SHIPPING. The XTAC 55gr is 7.19 with free shipping and the 62gr xtac is 7.69 and of course free ship. How can you go wrong with that? I personally like PMC ammo and run it in all my firearms
