The Hornady Superformance 77gr 5.56 is about $0.94/round the 62 gr .223 Fusion is about $1/rd.  The Hornady lists a little higher muzzle velocity.  I prefer the heaviest round I can get in any caliber usually.

Have you ever looked around at the group of people you are in and thought, "If the Zombie Apocalypse happens right now, this is what I have to work with."?

Well, I took my SCAR to the range a few years back. I had 1 box of Winchester PDX and a box of Fusion. The PDX did not shoot to my zero from the 55gr FMJ, and the groups sucked too (not really in a small group). The Fusion grouped well at 50 yards, and the zero was almost spot on to the FMJ rounds I shoot for target practice. I just slightly adjusted the zero to match the Fusion exactly, and shot 2 more boxes of it on the next trip. Now, that's what I keep in the mag, and I think I have about 120 rounds of the stuff. I'm just gonna stick with that.

ETA: at the house in town, I prefer Hornady 55gr TAP

ETA: at the house in town, I prefer Hornady 55gr TAP

I used that before I had my SCAR - in my AUG. But after that last ammo rush - I never see TAP outside of a gunshow. No gun stores or any stores here that used to have it carry it anymore. For years now. So, I bought just plain VMAX 55gr for a while. But, with the bigger bolt, the VMAX barely cycles my SCAR 16. It runs, but just barely. For self defense, I don't wanna tempt fate and have it not cycle completely once. So, I went with the Fusion.

I have my PS90 for my indoor gun, though. WIth the 198 ammo.

You could be right.
I have not bought any AR ammo in years,
I am living proof that there is such a thing as too much ammo.

Last time I bought 223, it was $79 a CASE.  :th_thicon_idea:
