    If that is the UMC junk, consider it an excellent group.

    Why don't you buy some decent ammo and shoot your gun to its full potential?

    I can usually find Federal 55gr .223 bulk at Walmart. I like doing comparisons back to back with different ammo, even if it is low-grade or bulk packs. I'll take pictures next time

    for certain calibers that is true, but $15.97 for Federal 45acp 230gr FMJ doesn't
    "suck"

    I've had great success with the UMC 223 55gr FMJ. What 223 do you shoot in the same price range thats better, and made in the U.S.A.??

    Not everyone has a bimart near them.... There are exactly zero in the greater Seattle metro area.
