Scott Bearden ( Sat, 19 Jan 2013 21:47:03 +0000 ) : Two months ago this ammo went for around $300! But hey in these hard times why not Gouge peoples eyes out! Not Me. But I guess if there are fools out there that will pay it they will gouge!
John Denton ( Mon, 21 Jan 2013 22:18:01 +0000 ) : now I'm scared to shoot what I have.
Nicki Walsh Edkin ( Tue, 22 Jan 2013 01:06:09 +0000 ) : Price gouging faggots
Rachel Edkin ( Tue, 22 Jan 2013 05:02:59 +0000 ) : Nicki! LOL Ty you are hilarious.
Auren O'Connell ( Tue, 22 Jan 2013 06:49:12 +0000 ) : It's times like these that show true character. Greedy inflation will not sustain my business. Someone should report these guys to Federal.
Cassidy Paul Allen Ferrel ( Fri, 03 May 2013 00:16:20 +0000 ) : You're not the only one.
Steve Lallier ( Tue, 07 May 2013 15:59:05 +0000 ) : Just wondering why this ammo costs over $800. When it can be bought at my local gun store in OH for $550?
Steve Lallier ( Tue, 07 May 2013 16:04:19 +0000 ) : I misspoke its $569, to be exact.
Nathan Paone ( Fri, 14 Jun 2013 03:12:55 +0000 ) : Just got 1000 rounds for 500, not from here though... Don't waste your hard earned money supporting a company that is supporting all who price gouge!
Tyler Menth ( Thu, 04 Jul 2013 21:34:01 +0000 ) : I bought this same case of ammo for $430 at dicks last week. why is the same case worth $300 more if I order it from your site?
Tony Tiona ( Tue, 01 Oct 2013 20:08:58 +0000 ) : Afraid to shoot what? Just don't shoot 5.56 in a gun not meant for it.
Paul Emery ( Wed, 02 Oct 2013 17:20:19 +0000 ) : Buy more and shoot all you want...........
Michael Morris ( Thu, 10 Oct 2013 17:53:06 +0000 ) : What is it you are unsure of? If your rifle is chambered for 5.56, you can shoot .223 Rem. in it. If you have a Mil Spec AR-15 chambered in .223 it is built to mil spec and you can shoot 5.56 in it. If you have a Rifle that is .223 more than likely the higher pressures of the 5.56 could be dangerous.
Michael Morris ( Thu, 10 Oct 2013 17:57:38 +0000 ) : If your firearm is a Mil Spec AR .223 you will be safe to run 5.56 through it...The Mil Spec on an AR is built to take the much higher pressures that a 5.56 produces, be it an AR in.223 or an AR in 5.56
Dean Graunke ( Sat, 19 Oct 2013 18:03:55 +0000 ) : I keep it simple. Everything I have is nato 5.56. shoot all of it.
Michael Miller ( Sun, 02 Mar 2014 20:19:00 +0000 ) : If you listen to anything listen to this. If you rifle is chambered 5.56 you can shoot both .223 and 5.56 with no worries. However, if it is chambered .223 after firing 5.56 for a period of time it will damage your rifle causing at a point if you get to it to blow up due to higher pressure caused from a 5.56 round. Regardless if it is mil spec or not. Don't believe the guy below talking about mil spec all mil spec means is that the "best" quality material was used for the best price. So not the highest quality available, but the best deal for the money. Mil spec is not highest of quality because it means the government bought in bulk so they want the best bargain. Mil spec is not a space grade material as thought by most.
Steve Titus ( Fri, 07 Mar 2014 16:17:47 +0000 ) : Hey everybody! Listen to Michael! He is 100% right! There is NO SUCH THING as a "milspec .223" If it is milspec, it will be labeled as 5.56x45. Again, there is no such thing as a "milspec .223."
Joe Schmoez ( Wed, 21 May 2014 17:32:44 +0000 ) : Again, **BAD ADVICE** from Michael Morris. If your gun is chambered for .223 Rem, DO NOT shoot 5.56mm ammo from it! The ammunition specification for 5.56mm ammo allows HIGHER CHAMBER PRESSURE than the .223 Remington ammunition specification. (Thus, you can shoot .223 from a 5.56mm-chambered gun, but you SHOULD NEVER fire 5.56mm from a .223-chambered gun)
Joe Schmoez ( Wed, 21 May 2014 17:32:47 +0000 ) : **BAD ADVICE** from Michael Morris! Look it up yourself. 5.56mm ammo is loaded to a higher chamber pressure than .223 ammo. If you have a gun chambered in .223, DO NOT shoot 5.56mm ammo through it. It may work for a while, but is dangerous and eventually WILL cause problems! (It is perfectly safe to shoot .223 ammo from a gun chambered in 5.56mm)
Juan Tenorio ( Fri, 23 May 2014 08:33:28 +0000 ) : Dont worry about it if you have an AR chambered only for .223. Theres PLENTY of .223 ammo that'll shoot just as good and in many ways better than .556. The .223 chambered AR's are inherently a bit more accurate than the .556 due to the way the chamber is designed. (too long to describe) but trust me you don't have a "lesser" rifle just because it's .223. You should try Hornady Superformance Match 175 grain ammo in .223, it's awesome! A bit pricey of course , but I've shot sub moa groups with it @ 200 yds consistently, and that's with a 1:9 twist bbl! And all "mil spec" means is that the rifle itself and all it's components were built to government tolerances despite being 5.56 or .223.
Juan Tenorio ( Fri, 23 May 2014 08:49:06 +0000 ) : Don't be, like I stated there's plenty of .223 ammo that'll shoot just as well, and more accurately. The .223 chambered AR's are inherently more accurate. Try shooting Wolf Gold 55 grain .223, it's almost match grade accurate and velocity wise exactly the same as a 55 grain 5.56. Wolf Gold is such underrated ammo. I bought 1k rounds of it and upon inspecting it I was amazed at the quality: the primers were lacquer sealed and the case mouths were crimped just like a battle ready 5.56 round. Buy some you will not be disappointed!!
Blu Badger Thames ( Mon, 02 Jun 2014 07:12:25 +0000 ) : Hey Lucky! Check your math! $425 for 1000rnds is NOT $0.35/rnd. Fix your shit.
Heidi At Lucky Gunner ( Mon, 09 Jun 2014 00:48:12 +0000 ) : Hey Blu- thanks for the heads up. I'm not sure what happened there. I'm seeing $350 for 1,000 rounds now and $.35 per round. Sorry if there was a problem earlier.
Blu Badger Thames ( Mon, 09 Jun 2014 10:16:16 +0000 ) : well, now I feel like a jerk.

I only buy from Lucky Gunner these days (about five years). Use to shop around, but that was a waste of time. All I ever found was that they were the best on virtually every level. I only buy in bulk, and they deliver usually in 2 days. You will not find a better place to buy your ammunition, I know, I've tried and there is no other. (Posted on 10/30/13)
