    Out of the links below, which ammo would you recommend for the money spent? Also, what is the difference between Federal Lake City xm193 5.56 and American Eagle xm193 5.56?

    There are others on Cabelas that i did not list so feel free to add them. I cant spend money on "match" ammo. I am just looking for the most accurate ammo for the money. Thanks

    Ammo 5.56X45mm Federal Lake City 55 Grain FMJBT XM193 Box of 20 Rounds New Production Super Quality from cheaper than dirt for $12.79 a box

    I can not include the direct link from Cheaper than dirt.com because it posts my full name.

    You'll have more fun anyway, in the end. Much more satisfying if you come up with a load for your own gun, build it yourself, then shoot bullseyes with it.:)

    none of those;
    Winchester 45 grain varmint, big white box, is first
    then black hills blue box plain jane 55 grainers.
    both of these, through a decent rifle, are one hole punches at 100 yds.

    a few years ago Academy sold the winnies 40 rounds per box, for 10.46 per box, I thoroughly stocked up. And Carter's Country sold the 50 round box , of black hills for 13. bucks a box, bought all those as well.

    Most accurate ammo... would be handloaded stuff tailored to your particular gun.
    Probably cheaper than commercial stuff to boot.

    That's because CTD cookied your hard drive. We won't see your name unless you email us the cookie and we can store it on ours.

    +1 for Privi Partizan.They also make 8mm Mauser that shoots better than ''sniper ammo''.I just bought 2 boxes of 6.5 Carcano,that I have very high expectations for.Boxer primed,and very nice reloadable brass.Check out AIM Surplus...
