Default Remington UMC .223

I am looking to get some .223 ammo. I don't know much about Remington UMC but I found a box of 200 rounds online for $80 shipped. Is this ammo any good and is 80 bucks a fair price?

$.40/rd is a pretty good deal these days.

Those pics are using UMC ammo, its cheap but I have not ever had a fail to fire or anything with it.

The most annoying part about it is the box it comes in is about 3X larger than it needs to be. I don't know if this is true when buying in large quantities.

Wally World sells it for just under $10 a box, so 200 rds. for $80 is a good price. Problem is it's 55 gr FMJ and if your AR has a 1:8 or faster twist it won't be MOA ammo. But for plinking it's fine and the brass is reloadable.
