you can pay the .22/round shipped for GT or you can shoot wolf or somthing similar for .20/round or less shipped. i shoot whatever is cheapest. most of the people on here are shooting 50-100 yds at their local range on a bench anyways. i seperate my ammo into two categories: SHTF or range ammo. SHTf ammo = 8m3. Range = whatever is cheapest

I like soviet stuff from 71 or 72. Great grouping.

That's probably why they were able to do mine for only $17. Charging actual costs...

But I had not heard of the charges being that high, so it's good info to have.

I do not understand the tula hate. I shoot it alot, and have never had any issues at all. Actually i tested out some steel case 223 in my aug after reading the horror stories on how it wouldnt run steel. I tried steel wolf 1st, it cycled fine, but didnt lock the bolt back on last shot. Next i tried tula, thinking it would be worse than wolf. Nope, cycled fine, and locked the bolt back.

For groups: 8m3 or nicer

For getting my tactical fuck fuck on and dropping rounds down range: Tula

Tula opens up my groups to a nice 3 MOA, anything else I shoot is inside of that

Yup. Just wanted people to know it was more than you posted. Not even complaining bout the extra high shipping cost on that one because it was still a pretty good deal.

From AKOU ammo review

60 rounds each (but I think Lapua was maybe only 10 due to availability)

Cents/round as of may 2018
