  • M855 5.56 ammo on sale.....

    Saw that Aimsurplus has the Federal M855 420rds per 30cal can on strippers for 139.95.
    Lake City stuff. Its the same ammo that is showing up in Wal-Mart stores everywhere for 149.95 plus tax of course. Though tit was a pretty good price for it.

    Well, between paying tax for an in-state purchase and paying the freight from AIM, flip a coin depending upon where you live.

      BlackGunAmmo.com has M193 and X855. M193 was $160 per 500 rounds. X855 is 335 per 1000 or $167.50 per 500. My M193 arrived at my door in a .30 can wrapped in a cardboard box. It also had a data sheet in the box, it is below. My buddy whom works there said they have M80 ball, 9mm, .45ACP and .40SW in the pipe.
