I have looked everywhere for .224 55 grain bullets to feed my AR-15 reloads. At this point, I don't want to go shooting in fear of never being able to use the AR if I "have to".

Anyone got a source??

Midwayusa.com is kind of pricey on their shipping, but they allow back-ordering.

But You didn't specify what type so you get to rumage through the masses. :evil:

Cabelas is only showing a 0-1 week backorder for bulk Remington 55gr FMJ.

OK, Just ordered the Cabelas. Funny thing is though, I just placed an order to Cabelas less than 2 hours ago. Tried to call and get this added, too late. My order was already processed and being packaged!

How about Pat's Reloading. http://www.patsreloading.com/patsrel/prices.htm

He has .224 bullets in stock. (scoll about 1/4 to 1/2 down the page and you'll see them)

This is the only bad thing thought:
"We are 6-12 weeks behind on shipping right now."

Can't hurt to give him a call!

I just place backorders with Midsouth Shooters Supply for Hornady's:

http://www.midsouthshooterssupply.com/item.asp?sku=001532267B250

At $82.17 for 1K or $158.28 for 2K (shipped to me), it's a deal. Last shipment took about 3 weeks.

Try here http://www.polygunbag.com/bullets.html Says they're sold out, but call them for a true status. I just got 1000 .30-06 bullets from them last week.

Just got my 8wk BO shipped from Midway, in the mean time I ordered and was shipped 1000 from Natchez.
They are out there but you may have to hit more than 1 source.
Between Midway, Powder Valley and Natchez I have found most everything I need except primers.
Natchez had no problem with 168 SMKs and 180 GK in .30 either.

How long ago did you order them?

I had 1k of 22 + 500 6mm in 5 days from Natchez. 500 168 SMK and 8lb B-LC2, 231 + 500 180 SGK in 5 days also. 16 lbs powder and 20,000 primers on back order.
The big glitch on the midway order was .380 components, seems any kind of PD ammo is in short supply and I am getting int the .380 reloading game behind the curve.
