Default .223 AND 556 ammo coming back?

Here in Slidell, La for the past 2 weeks Acadamy has had all the ammo you can carry with no limit. Good prices too. Anyone else seeing more of this?

there is plenty here. the problem is the prices. they aren't horrible, but on average 20-30% more than pre-panic prices. people are thinking 40 cents a round is good these days, it was closer to 30 cents before the panic.

but it is good to see it around as opposed to NONE.

Its coming back.
but there is enough pent up demand that retailers do not need to lower prices a lot to move inventory.. So they wont ..

They have American Eagle brass for around .25 a round. The Tulammo stuff is like 4.75 a box of 20.

yeah...ive seen those 150 for $70 boxes.....that is coming in just shy of 50 cents a shot.

like i said, its not terrible, but not good. they had 100 round boxing of fed plinking 223 for $34 regularly before this mess started. 34 cents a shot makes me much happier....wonder if it ever gets there again?
