Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone has good sources for .223/5.56 bullets right now? I'm starting to run low and I can't find them anywhere. Is there any hope?

Thanks!

Other than making your own? Not really.

Good luck with that. I had no intention of loading 223/5.56 until the panic began. I have primers, powder and cases, but no dies or bullets. I can't find them anywhere.

If you aren't wanting bullets for precision shooting, more plinking. Hornady at Grand Island has some .223 55 gr. seconds left. I just bought 600 rounds and they look fine. I should have bought all 10 boxes. That is if you are in Nebraska or traveling interstate 80.

I have been able to find everything I needed in the last couple months to keep on going long term.
Except bullets...
.224 bullets are the one thing I haven't found in bulk since Montana Golds in very early January.

Lots of places have had 100ct bags in here and there, but I'm not wishing to pay $150-$200+ per thousand right now.
If I had none I would buy, though. I mean, if it came down to not shooting. 15 cent bullets would still mean 20-25ish cents per round for me.

Pat's reloading has .224 55 V-Max w/c in right now at $169 per thousand. That's just more than I am willing to pony up at the moment.

Also has 224 55 PSP Hornady for $124 per thousand.

Of course shipping will push it up.

They also had the Hornady AMAX but I think I got the last of them.
