    I have been reloading pistol ammo for a while but I might be about to acquire a .223 / 5.56 M4. The local range is an indoor range that requires frangible ammo. I found some on midway but as with everything, I'm sure its cheaper reloading it.

    So, two part question:
    1) Which bullets for .233 to stockpile ammo?
    2) Which frangible bullets for range practice?

    Your problem will be finding frangible bullets. This is the http://www.sinterfire.com/ is one producer I know of. But, I am not sure they sell the components direct to the consumer. Now, Black Hills Shooters Supply (sells to dealers only) does have Sinterfire bullets for sale as a component, in 250 ct increments.

    Is there any reason you can't just use varmint bullets?? They blow apart when they hit a few blades of grass.

    Reason I posted....

    I suspect they don't want FMJ's and particularly AP's due to damage to the targets. Frangibles blow apart. Varmint bullets blow apart.

    Just interested.
