Good cheap Ar .223 ammo?
 
Ive been using American Eagle that I found for about .31 cents/round but its real dirty. I was hoping I could get some advise or opinions on some other ammo.

Good cheap .223? Wolf, Tula, Herter's and other steel case, about 25 cents a round. Try a little first (don't buy 1K) as some ARs gag on it but it should work.

Without starting the steel case debate again, I'd at the very least avoid Tula. The local range has warning signs up. They've been seeing an increasing number of squib loads from Tula ammo lately. Their quality control appears to be spotty at best.

Dont take this wrong . Im not trying to start any crap but Im calling BS, "they" the range doenst want the steel cases as its worth nothing to them , I have shot well over 1000 rds of tula . .223 55gr FMJs since Christmas thru my AR and have had zero problems and all of this ammo is marked 10/11 on the inside of the box so its fairly new ammo. If your gun is having issues with running this ammo its not the ammos fault you have a gun issue!!! PERIOD!!! , wether its FTF or eject. Improper lubrication is a very common problem and that is not a gun issue or ammo issue that is a operator error , I have had zero misfires on any of this ammo , I keep my bolt probably to wet but I just dont want to have my own horror story about FTF problems . Just saying :D and it seems to shoot more accurately in my gun than the Remington UMC's
I would like to find some 62 gr HPs but everyone seems to be out , well the ones with the cheap prices anyway .
I took my son age 13 to shoot my AR this weekend and he wanted to know what that bullet would go thru I told him 3 maybe 4 treated 4X4s together , Hell I didnt thave a clue, it went thru 6 of them stacked together at 50 yards with Tula FMJs , so I cant say the ammo is weaker than anything else and I didnt take my Chronograph with me it was 15 degees and it doesnt do well below freezing , " too many mis reads "

Wolf and Tula have worked great for me.
