Thumbs up Federal Ammo 556 55gr FMJBT (Bulk) 1000 for $282.94 shipped

Back ordered but still on sale for $299/case at Brownells

During Checkout in the first box (Promotional Code) type in "DFM" for an extra 10% off or $30 discount.

Add $12.95 for shipping

Bulk-packed 5.56 x 45mm ammunition is first run, first-quality ammo manufactured at the Lake City Army Ammunition Plant for Federal Cartridge

I just purchased a case for back order for $282.94 shipped to my door that's $0.28/round of quality Lake City 5.56 ammo

This thread just reminded me. If somebody wants 20rd boxes instead of bulk, Palmetto State Armory has both Federal XM193 and PRVI M193 for $5.99/20rds. With shipping to (central) Maryland, it's $313.50 for 1000rds, or $0.314/round. Even less if you have a coupon code (I don't).

Bought a case of it yesterday. Shipping is a flat $13 no matter how much ammo you buy, so it's a good opportunity to toss in any boxes of ammo you've wanted to try.

And that DFM code is 10% off the entire ammo order, so you're still saving decent cash. Got a whole bundle of Mini-Mags on the cheap-ish with it.

No one ever posts about Palmetto State and they always have cheap 5.56. Right now it's 5.99/box and $12 shipping if you order 1k. They were at 5.79 and 5.49 before that. It seems like it's all coming up again.

They also have the cheapest 5.7x28 I can find including shipping EXCEPT for when cabelas has sales with free shipping and a free ammo can (got that deal just before christmas).

Good deal.

I called Brownells yesterday to ask when they thought this ammo would show up. The lady on the phone said they have a delivery date of late this month.

I hated to spend the money, but the price is right and it will likely only go higher the closer we get to the election. As much as I didn't want to spend the money I ordered two cases.

Palmetto has great prices. They have been good to deal with when I've had to call as well.


...although this deal beats what they are offering currently, so I just ordered two cases. Ammo has started to become a bit scarce lately.
