    Looks like Bi-Mart has Remington UMC .223 this week for $6.99 a box.
    Haven't seen it that low for a while.

    I might have to go pick up a few.

    Know if this is a statewide deal?

    I picked up a few boxes of the stuff a while back. It isn't worth what you pay...not even on sale. In the two rifles I shot it through, group sizes opened up 500% compared to XM193. The UMC was 300fps slower across the chronogaph as well. If you look on the box it says MC rather then FMJ. About the only thing I would buy them for is fire forming .223 Ackley Improved cases.

    THey had them for that price in Corvallis.

    I don't shoot that size so I had no need to pick any up.
    (remember it's 4 boxes per "sale")...

    I did manage to pick up some .45 JHP's that were NOT on sale.

    The XM was on sale the week before...just wish they would lift the 4 box rule. I picked up some of the green box tho for when friends & the wife shoot the AR...5" groups are ok for them!

    They had this in stock at the bi-mart in Vancouver yesterday, people were picking it up 4 cases at a time. I dont have a .223, but I did get a 250rnd pack of Remington UMC 9mm for 60 bucks, which seemed like a pretty good deal to me.

    I've been buying my 4 box allotment a couple times a week on my way home from work since the sale started....they ordered a ton of the stuff during obama mania and by the time they got it the rush on ammo was kinda over. I'm taking a carbine class at OFA and i'm trying to accumulate the rounds I'll need for the class.

    We looked at the Hillsboro/Aloha BiMart on 185th today and it didn't have this sale posted! Nobody was around to ask for several minutes, so we just took off.
