    I have looked everywhere for .224 55 grain bullets to feed my AR-15 reloads. At this point, I don't want to go shooting in fear of never being able to use the AR if I "have to".

    Anyone got a source??

    Midwayusa.com is kind of pricey on their shipping, but they allow back-ordering.

    TJConevera's- Out of Stock
    Golden West- Out of Stock
    Berry's- In stock but 8 weeks behind on orders, and by the time mine is processed, she can almost guarantee my order will not be filled.

    OK, Just ordered the Cabelas. Funny thing is though, I just placed an order to Cabelas less than 2 hours ago. Tried to call and get this added, too late. My order was already processed and being packaged!

    How about Pat's Reloading. http://www.patsreloading.com/patsrel/prices.htm

    He has .224 bullets in stock. (scoll about 1/4 to 1/2 down the page and you'll see them)

    This is the only bad thing thought:
    "We are 6-12 weeks behind on shipping right now."

    Can't hurt to give him a call!

    Just got my 8wk BO shipped from Midway, in the mean time I ordered and was shipped 1000 from Natchez.
    They are out there but you may have to hit more than 1 source.
    Between Midway, Powder Valley and Natchez I have found most everything I need except primers.
    Natchez had no problem with 168 SMKs and 180 GK in .30 either.

    I had 1k of 22 + 500 6mm in 5 days from Natchez. 500 168 SMK and 8lb B-LC2, 231 + 500 180 SGK in 5 days also. 16 lbs powder and 20,000 primers on back order.
    The big glitch on the midway order was .380 components, seems any kind of PD ammo is in short supply and I am getting int the .380 reloading game behind the curve.
