    Am over in Eburg for work and stopped at a pawn gun shop. They had one Last bag of 55gr federal 5.56 50 rounds for $33.00. Was that a deal or a teeny bit of gouging?

    Brutus out.

    0.66cents a round. Better deals out there.

    $10 per 20 rounds of new unfired full metal jacket 5.56 at my local sporting goods store so it doesn't sound that good.

    Is 450.00 for 1,000 rounds of reloaded .223 55gr fmj too much?

    Maybe, I just paid 2 cents more per round for new manufactured Fiocchi Extrema loaded with the Hornady 40 gr V-Max bullet. But if you think the price is reasonable, and the quality sufficient, go for it. Cabelas in Yakima had a bunch of PMC 55 gr FMJ for $9.95 a box of 20. (50 cents a round vs. 47 cents for the Fiocchi vs. 45 cents for the 55 gr FMJ reloads) Myself, I think the extra pennies are worth it for the once fired factory brass. No telling how many times those reloads have been loaded. And, in my experience, the 40 gr V-Max bullets are significantly more accurate than the 55 gr FMJ's even in the AR's I have tried them in. And, their performance on montana gophers was "Extrema"!
