    Best cheap plinking 5.56/.223?

    Looking to pick up some ammo in bulk soon. I've ran American Eagle through both my AR's and neither really like it (3.5-4" groups at 100). I had a box of Wolf Gold that were just under 2" on my 16" gun, got a few left in gonna try on my 18" this weekend. I also see PSA has a good deal on Fiocchi 55gr with some pmags through tomorrow. Bronwells also has a good deal on 1K of the Wolf Gold. I'm trying to stay away from steel also. TIA.

    This is one of my favorites, Independence/Federal 5.56mm. I find it very accurate. Brass cases. $300 delivered for 1000 rounds.

    Palmetto State Armory loves to bundle stuff together. They regularly run 1000 rounds plus 10 Gen 2 pmags for between $330-350. If you don't like the pmags or don't need any more mags (for some unknown reason), You can always sell them on here. $80 for 10 or $9 each and you'll knock some off the net cost of the ammo. And they frequently have free shipping on their ammo deals as well.

    Yeah they're running the Fiocchi now with 10. More mags are never a bad thing haha

    You had good luck with it? I've only ran a box through one of my guns so don't have a big sample.

    Jccypress is selling some wolf performance and tula on here. I have no clue how it differs from the wolf gold. 500 rounds for $110, 1000 for $210.

    You might check PSA. The federal XM193 was 27 cents per round shipped (the 150 round boxes) up until a week or two ago... I sent out a thread. I bought 60 boxes in 3 lots and they still had it.

    Contrary to popular belief, a head shot is not necessarily a guaranteed kill shot....but it sure does take the fight out of 'em.

    Wolf gold is brass cased 223 loaded close to m193 specs.
