Default 223 ammo

What's up everyone,
Just pick up a Bushmaster XM15 and wanted to know what's a good 223 round that's reliable and affordable?

Are you just wanting some target ammo,or some hunting ammo?
Depending on where you plan to shoot,most Public ranges don't allow FMJ rifle ammo,so you wouldn't want to buy a bunch,if you can't shoot it at a range.You'd need to get either Soft point,Hollow point,or Ballistic tipped ammo.And in general any of those will make for decent hunting ammo.
55-60-62gr ammo is probably the most common in factory ammo,and any of these weight bullets should shoot good out of your rifle.
