Yeah, I just picked up 15 boxes of the Monarch for about $60 shipped. Not bad. I’ve been needing to hoard ammo.

This is where all my last few batches came from and they all had the proper sealers.

Red Army Standard is Century imported and has several facilities it uses for production, so make sure it's the purple sealed

Valid question adam. Going by the ad above, it looks like the purple sealed/lacquered Vympel. Has anyone purchased any recently to verify?

True. Y'all know if you purchased inexpensive hi-cap factory mags when the 1994 AWB was no more. Did you buy 5.56 ammo just a few months ago ? They were giving away brand name brass ammo.

Iíve never shot it. Iím newer to 5.45 and Iíve just been picking up ammo as Iíve found it on sale. Iím more versed on .223 and .308.

Monarch and Wolf MilSpec are my favorites, with GT coming in a close third. Haven't tried 7n6 or Tula yet, but Wolf black box isn't bad.

Thanks for the heads-up on the Monarch deal. I grabbed a couple cases. Not bad at all @ $0.20/round.
