I am also curious about this. I plan to reload .223 once I go through my stash, but never looked to see what they were going for before the great panic. How much did standard 55grn plinking rounds go for?

.224 SMK at Turners were about $25/100. All weights. Not the best deal, but a starting point for comparison.

Anything less than 150/k right now is a good price.

If I pay $150 per 1k shipped I am happy. If I pay over $150 per 1k after shipping I am sad but comforted with the fact I still get to go to the range the following weekend. Pre panic I usually only bought pulled bullets but haven't found those in months.

I paid about $0.09 per for 55gr Hornady FMJBT durring the panic... was cheaper before the panic, about $0.08 per.

Got 75gr match bullets for about $0.125 each

I had to excersize a lot of paitence and a little luck as well... but the deals can still be found.

Nachez has some .224" 55gr SP w/Cannelure 100/Bag for $11.99 http://www.natchezss.com/Bullets.cfm...2%20cal%20.224. That's the best I've seen recently. There are probably other deals out there too.
