    While I have no doubt we can blame Bush, global warming, alien invaders and the Flintstones does anyone have a source for 55 grain .223 boat tail bullets. Bulk pack that is, that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. I’m ready to load for the summer season and that’s all I lack.
    (my arms and legs are pretty ugly)

    I think he's talking about just the bullet, not loaded ammo. Bulk 55 grain .223 bullets with cannelure have been in short supply for a couple of months now, everyone is out. Pulled down bullets are still available at some places. Dud tracer bullets are available and dirt cheap too.

    I'm curious as well except I'm looking for 62gr. I'm not picky about the boat tail though.

    Looking at current ammo prices lately has really gotten me to wish I got into shooting and reloading a couple years earlier. Could've saved myself quite a bit of money and headache....

    I just ordered Remington 50 Grain Soft Point bullets from Midway and they're backordered, hopefully they'll be in by the end of the month...

    And almost all the other bullets were out of stock, no backorders...

    Wideners had some Hornady 55-grainers in stock a couple of days ago. I just checked and now they're out of stock again. They were 72.00 a thousand, though, ouch! It seems you just have to check the vendors sites on a daily basis and be ready to jump when you seem something.

    Sorry, but the only military .223 bullets I've got lying around are this thousand or so tracers I've been meaning to load up...
