On Monday my Wally Mart had Independence .223, 55 Gr. FMJ @ $8.87 for a box of 20. Not a super price but ok considering. It is BRASS brass so I have been picking up my 3 boxes along with my brother every day. Got the last 4 this morning. That's 440 to shoot and good brass to reload. The bulk pack my LGS had were Nickel plated brass which I didn't want. I can't believe they lasted this long. That gives me close to 700 factory rounds, 900 brass and enough powder, bullets, primers for another 2000 loads. When the weather clears (if ever again) time to start poken more holes.
