New to the 223/5.56 ammo scenario.

What were prices like when things were "normal" compared to now? Looking for a comparison so I know what a good deal is.

Thanks

I used to get my .223 from Dunhams or Cabelas and was paying about $.25-$.27 per round for Herter's, Wolf, etc. I saw no reason to buy anything better since I was just wasting it downrange on targets, watermelons, pumpkins, etc. I'd love to find it for that price nowadays...

Near me trop use to have a good after shortage deal of 200 rounds bulk in a ammo can for 99. they now lowered the count to 180 for same price.

Prior to the shortage between .25 cent to .30 cent a around, sometimes a lot less in mass bulk.

Cheaper than dirt has 20rds for 25 bucks. $1.25 a round when you narrow it down, that stinks. Thats .223 ammo, not 5.56 though.
Yeah, I see what it is now. Was asking what it was price at before all the hype etc.

you could go to walmart and buy decent plinking rounds for about 9 bucks for a box of 20.
