    Pity I don’t own anything that eats 5.56. :p

    Ahh, maybe one day they’ll be a 7.62 sale. |3

      Your comment makes me want to run a “what calibers do you own” poll! I gotta think most of the TTAG audience owns a 5.56/.223. Probably the vast majority have a 9mm. I wonder what the third most popular caliber would be. 12 ga, probably. Fourth most popular? Or do you think I’m off base already?

        ” Or do you think I’m off base already?”

        Well, the daily post count has collapsed again to a handful per, so a “what calibers do you own” poll would be a quick way to up the post count without having to break a sweat… 🙂

        As for the original ammo sale post, $250 a thousand delivered ain’t bad at all for .556 – .223, TTAG corporate should pick up a few thousand for T&R purposes…

          I don’t want to come across as an ass, but try to remember. Roberts mom just passed away.
          So, article count may be down. I’m good with that. I dealt with my dad passing 11 months ago. I’m still dealing with the minor details from that.
          Robert has kids. They just lost their Grammy.
          I’m sure he has his hands and heart full.
          Sorry if I came across as an ass or a hard ass. But I have broken bread with Robert, Dan, JWT, Jeremy, Tyler and a few others. I consider them close friends.
          Please be kind.

          No, you weren’t being an ass, it had slipped my mind on his mom, and that was thoughtless of me…

      2. avatar Timothy says:

        9mm is the most popular pistol cartridge. However, for gun blogs, I gotta imagine pretty much everyone here has at least 5 different rounds. .22lr is probably top 3, it’s popular out of semi auto pistols, revolvers and rifles. I’d guess it would be number one actually

      3. avatar Hank says:

        Do it! Mainly because I want to see who has the more obscure calibers.

        1. They’ll lie like half of the Internet bullshitters do already.

        2. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

          .22 and all the common small bores.
          Medium bores, .375 H&H, .416 Rigby.
          Large bore, .470 NE.
          I’m still toying with building a 20mm bolt gun. The .50 BMG was fun. But a 20?
          That’s some serious Boulder busting!

        3. avatar Noodles says:

          Like .350 RSAUM or .500 AHR?

      4. avatar Matt in FL says:

        Funny thing is, I only own one of the three things you mentioned, and that’s the 12 gauge. I have several AR’s in various stages of construction, but that’s how they’ve all been for a couple years, and I couldn’t assemble a single working gun out of all of them.

  2. avatar Liberal Prepper says:

    Hmm, was skeptical, but his is a legit deal. $299 case and $50 rebate. Last time I paid $250 for a thousand rounds of .223 was back in two thousand 0 something.

    Free shipping? weird. Is this a loss leader or a foreshadow of new ammo prices?

    1. avatar Matt in FL says:

      Yeah, I looked at four cases, and free shipping saved me $64.

  3. avatar Geoff PR says:

    “It’s all eligible for Federal’s $0.05 per round rebate,…”

    Holler back when .22lr has a $0.05 per round rebate.

    “How about M855 in Lake City brass for $0.25 per round, delivered?!”

    That’s not a bad price, actually…

    1. avatar Jeremy S. says:

      “That’s not a bad price, actually…”

      I’m not sure I’ve seen lower! It’s actual 5.56 NATO M855 62 grain green tip steel core penetrator in Lake City brass. I don’t think I’ve ever seen that for twenty five cents per round, let alone delivered at that price.

      On ammo bot, the least expensive 62 gr is Hotshot or PRVI for $0.33 per, plus shipping, and it ain’t NATO spec I don’t believe. PMC X-TAC is $0.34 + ship. Cheapest Federal is $0.35 + ship (which should qualify for the same rebate so $0.30 effective + shipping). Can’t think of a time I’ve seen it cheaper…at least not since pre-Obama days.

      1. avatar Matt in FL says:

        Is the 1000 round box also the green tip, even though it doesn’t say so, or is that only the 120 round bulk box?

        1. avatar uncommon_sense says:

          Matt in FL,

          Natchez has “Federal Independence XM855 Ammunition 5.56mm 62gr FMJ 3020 fps 1000/ct” (I copied this words in the double quotes from their website) box for $299.99 … and then you get free shipping and a $50 rebate from Federal. Their e-mail to me, which linked to that listing, says “green tip” in the little e-mail sale “flyier”.

  4. avatar Jeremy in AL says:

    Sounds good, but poo on you for not shipping to AL.

    1. avatar Higgs says:

      They are both an online sales store and a regional distributor. They do not ship / sell to the region where they are a distributor so they are not in direct compitition with the gun stores they sell to.

      At least that’s what I have read.

      1. avatar Ragnarredbeard says:

        I’ve read that too. But when I asked them a while back who exactly they distribute to they refused to say. So not only do they not get my money because they won’t ship to me in Georgia, but whatever business they distribute to loses out as well because they won’t tell me who it is.

        Eff Natchez.

        1. avatar Rusty Chains says:

          Ya, I got the same BS from them some years back. So I would never recommend them to anyone, no matter where they live. Ammo prices are coming down and will continue to fall, so Natchez can keep their ammo. I will buy from someone else when I need to restock.

  5. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    That’s a smoking price for M855.
    Looks like my debit card is gonna break a sweat.

  6. avatar Patrulje68 says:

    I only have 2 uncommon calibers, 30 Mauser for my broom handle and 303 for my Lithgow armory no 3*

    Anyone having issues with the Free Shipping code?
