$14/40 is twice what you should be paying for US .223/556

Get your .223/556 from Natchez for around $3.50/20

Yeah, the stated price is too high...it goes for less.

It is milspec and shoots well...leaving RELOADABLE cases.

It's a choice.

Lollygagger :wink: (of course a AK will "ding" the hell out of a brass case without something done to buffer it)

Here is my 84S with a Valmet buffer...

attached to the rear of the ejection port via a metal clip that contains a angled block of rubber. You can't get these anymore (that is, anything like reasonably)...but you get the idea.

The Wally world Winchester white box is $7.49 or something like that?? For 40 rounds of 55 grain FMJ here... I think the hallow points are about the $14 dollar price you quoted...It's great plinking ammo made in Isreal..I'll stop now the AR side of me is trying to come out!!! :doh:

WWB .223 is good stuff. Most of the .223 I shoot is WWB and it's $7.50ish per 40 round value pack at Walmart. It's significantly higher in velocity than Wolf. You will get a stronger recoil inpulse, flatter trajectory, better accuracy, and terminal ballistics. It is also suprisingly some of the cleanest ammo I have shot. My patches come out a light grey instead of a thick black when I use Wolf. Wolf .223 has a thick jacket and I don't think it has a canalure. It will just zip right through without fragmenting.



Here are some good links:
