    I only plink with 7.62x39... the 5.56 stuff is too outrageous price-wise. The 7.62 stuff is almost half the price of 5.56... ouch

    Reloads using the cheapest 55gr fmj I can find and h335 since it meters so well.

    xm193.

    I suspect that will change once I start reloading.

    It will still be my SHTF stash, though.

    Whatever .223 55gr or 62gr is cheap and available at the time. Usually UMC or American Eagle, sometimes PMC, sometimes Prvi...

    55 grain fmj reloads or Black Hills SBHP (55 gr), as my CZ carbine has a slower twist and doesn't like the 62 gr stuff. BUT as it's a bolt-gun..., I don't worry too much about ammo price as you fellers with your new fangled, gas operated, air cooled, auto-loading, ammo burners.

    I'm a cheapskate..., what else can I say? :neener:

    LD :D
