I forgot to add that I just purchased some 223 Remington UMC from Gander Mountain.
$84.99/200. They have free shipping thru today and Remington has a $20 rebate offer. After rebate lass than 33 cpr. I thought that was a good deal for brass ammo and to start out with. I haven't seen a better price on brass ammo and USA made. Is this a good price?

Brass ammo is the BEST to shoot in an AR-15. But, if I can get steel ammo for .20 cpr, and my AR chews it up like brass ammo, I will buy it ALL day long! .13 cpr multiplied by, let's say 500 rounds. $100 for 500 rounds of steel ammo. Add another $65 to that and you're paying $165 for 500 rounds of brass ammo, whereas you could save $65 to shoot steel case ammo. That $65 savings could buy more magazines, a scope mount, some MOE furniture.......you get my point.

Ditto. I did get some green tip 62 grain American Eagles by mistake, so I guess I need to find an outdoor range somewhere. Unless anyone wants to buy them...lol. Never used. 150 of them in a box.

Shop here for some good .223/5.56 ammo, American Eagle 55g is good?

5.56 has a slight more kick then the 223?

No more kick. Hell there's no real kick anyways since the buffer Spring eats most of it up. That's why it's do controllable especially on full auto. The first time I'd shot one of these in Basic I was amazed. Just a sploinggggggg sound , nothing even close to my 222 bolt gun. That's probably why the women for the most part outshot the men except for us ridge runners.

Federal 5.56 XM193. The real stuff for thin skinned game, the original, before the target shooters and ballisticians tried to make the thing into something it wasn't, and isn't.

You will get the best accuracy with 62-77 grain. But I have found I am driving nails with 55 grain 5.56
