    Anyone else noticed the complete lack of mil-spec 5.56 or 7.62 NATO in the Tacoma area stores? Either I am completely blind or I can't seem to find any XM855 5.56X45 62grain FMJ, much less any 7.62 NATO battlepacks.

    OK, carefully folding tinfoil hat and putting it away for future use.

    DOD placed a large order for 5.56 in the past few months, probably for the imminent invasion of Iran.

    Enjoy the 3 front war.

    Ok well I have given the original poster plenty of time as promised to get their ammo as agreed

    So I posted the to places I know where a person can the 5.56 Penetrators Cabelas is the one I found Cabela's: FederalĀ® American Eagle 5.56 NATO Ammunition with Ammo Can

    And Cheaper than Dirt provided to me by ATCclears (got to give him credit) AMM-223C - 5.56x45mm Lake City M855 FMJ 62 Grain Steel Penetrator 1000 Loose Bulk Case 3025 fps

    Both are in stock and available for shipment, I know of no places who have this ammo in stock at this time

    FEMA and BATFE. Don't think they are invading Iran soon. Maybe your neighborhood though!

    If it is M855 or XM855 it should say so on either the ammo, box or case
