    I don't get it.

    what are you using it for? Online should be cheaper then Gun show. But depends on what you are looking for.

    Gun shows seem to be the best deal

    I watch the adds for Bi Mart and fishermans, and have done the gunshows if I already am there because with parking and addmission it's not that great of a deal. Internet specials are also good. When Obama first took office the only way I could get some calibers was to backorder them on Sportsmans Guide.

    It looks like all they have is .223 ammo, no 5.56. And there are significant differences if your weapon is chambered for .223 and you put 5.56 into it. Putting .223 in a 5.56 chambered weapon is OK though

    I buy from ammoman.com, "free" shipping too.

    Example:

    5.45 X 39 FMJ at ammoman is $189/1080 rds. to your door
    5.45 X 39 FMJ at tacticalammunition is $148/1080 at the store so it would pay off depending on how much you buy and how far you have to travel.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll have to get out there.

    I've also ordered from Wideners.com. They have IMI 556 in stock.
