Wondering what's out there. Can be .223 or 5.56, steel or brass, matters not. Bulk is better. Let me know if anyone has seen something great that I may have missed!

(I have around 30 milk jugs and assorted other plastic containers like water bottles I want to have some fun with :-D)

steel cased Tula from CTD. I don't care for the place much but saw they had 55 gr FMJ Tula for $109 per 500. It's an average price but most are out of stock.

You have a bad experience with CTD? I've always received my ammo in no more than three days. You're the first I've heard that doesn't like them. What happened? (if you don't mind me askin') it's been awhile since I've used them, and I'm wondering if they have slipped?

I have received quick shipping on ammunition as well. My issue is their prices. Example: The latest catalog lists PMags for $19.97 (no window) $21.97 (window). That's rediculous. It's them taking advantage of the ill informed.

Damn! I haven't really paid attention to their mags and stuff...that's higher than a gun show.

Now that you mention it, back when I was buying M80 from them for my AR10, it started out @ $16.00/20, and as the "ammo shortage" of '08 & '09 kicked in, it went to $25.00/20 rds. I stopped buying it from them specifically because of that. Hell, thats what m118 was going for at other places. (when I could find it anyway).

Was just curious...thanks for reminding me of that. :)

I just received the new Natchez catalog for this month. They have really good prices on everything. 9 MM for $9.49 a box, (10 or more). .223 / 5.56 MM in all brands and bulk amounts. The ship fast and are excellent to deal with. If you subscribe to their E-Mails they'll send you a monthly catalog.

The general rule of thumb right now is anything in .223 that is brass cased, boxer primed and reloadable at $300.00 a thousand or under is a good deal in today's ammunition market.

$4.97 X 50 = $248.50 per thousand. You did well. Buy more at that price if you can afford to!

Federal black box? Are you sure it's not Tula? Can you post a picture of the box? The Walmart closest to the house sells black box Tula for $4.97 per 20.

I'm finished with CTD aswell their shipping is extortionately high, aim is far better.

If you dont mind steel cases, walmart is the leading supplier of ammunition for my town. I remember when they dropped 7.62x39 tula down to $3 for a sales event, they couldnt actually meep up with demand. But if you get to know the sporting goods people there, they can order you bulk. I pick up 10 boxes of 762x39 every few weeks, only spend $50 plus tax.

Steel ammo isn't reload able.
They are, 2 firings max, usually after that tge cases crack. Dont believe me the , search the forums. They all basically say the same thing. Steel is just harder on the tools and are a pain, but it can be done.

That doesn't mean it should be. They will destroy steel reloading dies in no time. They can and will crack Carbide resizing dies. Even a steady diet of Nickel plated cases will scratch both Carbide and steel dies. Steel cases will damage them beyond repair. It would serve no useful purpose to attempt it.
