Federal. It's what is occupying the majority of the .223 slot in my ammo storage.

500/20=25. So 500 rounds is the equivalent of 25, 20 round boxes. 25x$6.97=$174.25.  From OP Federal $149.75 for 500 rounds. A savings of $25.40.

Federal is good stuff.  Whenever you can get brass cased ammo for less than $0.30/rd, its a good deal.  For just plinking around PMC and Magtech are usually right in there.  PMC's price has dropped a bit at SGAmmo and I love to see lower pricing.
