Default Help on Ammo brand

Hi All,
I would like to buy some bulk 223 55gr. FMJ ammo. Maybe about 500-1000 rounds for play in the desert. Any suggestions as what brand to stay away from and what is the best deal? I love the Remington but it seems very pricey. I don't want junk, but don't want to pay for a name either.

Thanks for any help!

I've bought from both, no issues.

If your gun wont run everything, get a better gun!

If your gun is rated for 5.56 I would suggest waiting for the next local gun show and stocking up on mil-surp. You can usually get it cheaper.

Lucky Gunner is pretty good too if you buy bulk. Also Cheaper Than Dirt but you have to buy a couple thousand rounds to make their high shipping rates worth it.
