    Well, glad I don't have an AR-15 that I'd want to put good ammo through. My mini does fine eating Wolf.

    I wish I could get .223 at those prices. But I'm not buying 3 billion rounds either.

    but the real question : Does this get passed to the consumer, or the military? If it's mil-only, it's possible we won't see any price drops.

    woo hoo, found 2 sources for XM193. I bought a case from Ammoman for $219 shipped. Then last night, i bumped into a deal I couldnt pass up. $169 for 1000 rounds boxed! But with shipping, it came out to $194 for me. Still a killer deal.
    Bought it at http://wideners.com/
