I just bought my first rifle today
Smith&Wesson M&P15. Picked up a couple Pre-Ban 30 round mags as well.

Im new to firearms so these may be dumb questions.

I need to buy Ammo basically. I'm assuming .223 is cheaper and easier to find

I figured buying online in bulk was the way to go as would be cheaper. Like 1,000 round case as I its new to me and will want to shoot it alot.

First off what sites would you guys recommend? I was looking at ammotogo.com which I heard about
They seemed higher in price than other sites, but other sites could be less reputable.

Any Brands to look for or stay away from? Want something fine for the range for now.

I have seen different types like light-armor piercing, anyone know if any certain types are illegal in NY state?


Any help would be appreciated.

Light armor piercing is not illegal but most ranges will not allow it. Read some reviews online if people have problems with steel cased ammo in it. Most AR types seem to have no problem running it but a few do.

I did some searching around. Going to order from SGammo

Think Im going to order Either
1000 rounds of prvi partizan 5.56mm M855 62 grain or 1000 of PMC 223 PMC 55 grain FMJ ammo



Seems alot of sites are sold out of .223 and 5.56 ammo

ammoman.com is a good alternative to SGammo also ammunitiontogo.com, ammoman has free shipping. My AR wont cycle Wolf so personally I would stay away from that.

CTD blows. they will not ship a hogue grip for an AR to NY. They black list the whole state for 98% of its products because of NYC.

Palmettostatearmory has great deals on .223.

Then you obviously have no clue about what your paying. CTD has the highest prices I have ever seen (including shipping) and they usually sell garbage. Have fun with CT!

Target sports USA ain't so bad either and usually offer free shipping on cases.
There's others yet of course, but suffice to say there is a great honkin' pile of places that utterly crush CTD in general, especially when s&h is thrown into the equasion, but CTD advertises on a comparatively big scale so people take the easiest way out by simply going where the ads say they should go ('I saw this ad' syndrome) instead of taking the seed of an idea and actually putting a little effort into shopping around.

I had a great experience buying 1000 rounds from SGAmmo. PMC bronze is a great range ammo, I can usually pull off 1-1.5 MOA with it. You can have SG send you an email as soon as they get what you want in stock, which is a nice feature with how fast they sell out.

Just went for a quick spook purely for amusement

Item sought was Lake City 62gr, penetrator, fmj, reloadable, NATO headstamped, green tip M855, 1000rd loose bulk pack

CTD: $499 + $30 s&h
Target Sports USA $434 to your door
(TSU says 'sale price', but that price has been going on for several months, not a week or single month)
