    I'd go with the 62 if you're doing varmint. Wideners is cool, I get reloading supplies from them all the time.

    who cares, buy everything if its reloadable... prices go up tomorrow! fucking sportsmans guide already raised to 195 per case for black box HP 7.62x39.

    anything .223 is supposed to go up by 20-40% by the end of the year. its a fucking scam. i wish i could just open a ammo plant and sell to only citizens. when the govt came knocking, id tell them to take a flying fuck off the sears tower.

    i wonder how much ammo costs in other countries(namely south american countries) and how much it would cost... i have friends with connections down there. he says he can get aks for 200 down there, fully auto!

    My AR cycles the lacquer-coated stuff just fine, but does not dependably cycle the zinc-plated rounds. YMMV.
