Have recently been able to source Russian 223 here also. It is a bit dearer than above - around $10 for 20 but still about half price - ammo tends to be more expensive here than in USA. It is soft point hunting ammo. I have not yet tried it but am told the professional roo shooters are buying it by the truckload.

I saw some 22lr "Colt" ammo recently at a gun show. It wasn't made in the US, but it wasn't Russian either...

I bought a case of this 22lr recently, it is marked Colt & head stamped Colt, it is made by Aguila in Mexico.
Yep thats it. I thought it was Aguila, made in mexico, but I didnt want to say anything since I wasnt positive. They wanted $69 per brick so I passed. What did a case (I'm guessing 10 bricks?) run if you dont mind?

I probably paid too much, it came to $40 per brick, but right now since I can't find any I wish I had more.

That sounds good to me. If I would have seen it for $40 a brick, I would have bought a few to try out. Aguila ammo is good stuff imo... I figured $69 had to be steep becuase they were selling other ammo which I knew was very overpriced.
