Default 5.56 for 13 cents per round

Just came across this thanks to BudMan's ammo search engine post. WOW. If this isn't a typo, it's the best 5.56 deal I've ever seen.

Winchester 5.56 $6.99 per 55rd box

edit: nevermind, search engine glitch.

If I'm not mistaken those are 55 grain 20 round boxes and yet, that's still a very good price. It's hard for me to reload .223 for that price unless I have the once fired brass to start with.

Cabelas is selling that ammo for .35 cent a round plus shipping and any tax.

Yeah, the ammo search engine read the bullet weight as the pack size, I got hot and bothered. After I read my link I thought "wait, 55 rd boxes?" oh well.k

Just posted over in S&SL section. Looks like a really great resource, despite my snafu there.
