The 5.56×45mm NATO (official NATO nomenclature 5.56 NATO) is a rimless bottlenecked intermediate cartridge family developed in Belgium by FN Herstal. It consists of the SS109, SS110, and SS111 cartridges. Under STANAG 4172, it is a standard cartridge for NATO forces as well as many non-NATO countries. It is derived from, but is not identical to, the .223 Remington cartridge.
Picked up 400 Rounds of Federal 5.56 in a trade that I really don't have a need for. THESE ARE 100 ROUND BOXES THAT ARE SEALED AND NEW FROM FACTORY. Looking to offload for $380 to fund a .22 LR build.
Can deliver between Albany and Wilsonville.
So, earlier last year (you know, the dumpster-fire year) we decided to supplant the AR with another rifle. I was thinking short M1A, then lost my train of thought, and 2020 happened. Anyway, a recent mailing reminded me of the semi-automatic CETME L rifles being offered.

Selling for $250 per case of 500 rounds.
Also have some 1000 round cases of Red Army Standard .223 Remington 55gr. FMJ steel cased.
Selling the Red Army for $400 per case of...
So, an idea I keep coming back to is buying / modifying a very little, handy bolt-action for small varmints (e.g., coyotes, foxes) and informal shooting. A thought I have is to:
Obtain a CZ 527 carbine.
Papering it as an SBR and shortening the barrel back to, say, 11-12".
Threading said to...
This may sound odd, but we don't have a single bolt-action in the battery, being the rifles are semi-automatics and lever-actions. That said, I am starting to do some homework on this front for a variety of reasons.
Can anyone recommend a rifle that is:
Chambered in .223...
So, I took the new AAC 556-SD can out for the second time today. The ratchet latch fell off whilst firing. Then the can was stuck on the rifle. :eek:
But I managed to get it off.
Anyway, I have a message into AAC and I expect to hear back from them tomorrow. I just thought I'd toss...
So, we have, eh-hem, a bit of .223 Remington / 5.56x45㎜ NATO stockpiled. However, I am planning on doing a ton of practice on the primary, defensive, carbine in the coming months, and will have to replenish said as I blast through it. I have a number of sources, and use Ammo Seek on most ammo...
