    Ok, most of the other sub-forums have one, I thinks its high time we did.

    I'll start.

    Is there anyone out there who has absolutely no 55 gr FMJ in .223 who really needs them ? Not to have for stash, or to make that pile in your closet that much bigger- but someone who actually needs them and can't find any ?

    Spoken for to Horsemen.

    Good man, Arch- hope your store comes through !

    I ran out because I didn't have a lot to begin with. I must admit, I got caught short. I was loading for a bolt action rifle so i didn't need many but now I have an AR and all my 55gr bullets are gone but for 20. Why?

    I have a mixed bag of .223 brass someone can have. There is probably over 100 pieces and it has been cleaned and polished. It is mostly military brass, but I'm pretty sure the primer pocket crimps have been removed. I believe this was brass that was loaded by one of the companies that sell reloads, as most of the crimps were removed when I got the brass. I believe if you use CCI primers it should work just fine. Just PM with your mailing address and I'll try to get it out early next week.

    THANK YOU VERY MUCH but I think I'll be alright if my buddy who owns a gun shop gets in what he was promised by his distributor. I really appreciate it but please give the bullets to someone who has no chance to get any.

    Everyone here is right, you are a good man!

    I can spare 200 Remington 9.5 Large Rifle Primers. It would be very cost prohibitive to ship due to hazmat fee, though. However, if someone is in the Portland, Oregon area, PM me and I can hand off.

    Anyone who doesn't think the people on this forum are the best, they're probably not thinking clearly!

    I wish I has something to send someone in need. Keep posting needs and you just might hit on something I or someone else here can spare!

    Very nice guys. :) I ran out of all .223 bullets some time ago, but managed to score one 250 round box of the 55gr Nosler BT from MidwayUSA...I'll expend many for load development, and use the rest to hunt varmint with the vz-58, preferably on camera so I can show a "scary black rifle" going hunting. The rest of my .223 will stay in the baggies, nothing to replace them with yet.
    I'll look into my bunch of gear and see if there's something I could pass on to someone who needs it, but I just gave away some stuff a few days ago.:)

    horsemen61, I can send you some primed .223/5.56 cases (they would be full-length resized).

    PM me.

    I don't load or shoot .223 but I do have to say that this is really awesome to offer something like this to someone! Kudos to you my friend!
