    Bought an Ar lower/blah/blah setup for the 9mm upper I purchased. I also got an A1 20" HBAR upper and ~1600 brass.

    Cant decide if I want to take on the costs of buying all the reloading components for .223 or not


    Think I might want to get an A3 upper to have a scope though if I do stick with shooting .223


    Convince me yes or no on .223

    Final price not counting brass is around 83-103 per k depending on bullet used. No I wont sell you any cause i dont have a license to manufacture ammo:)

    thats not really what i meant. I would obviously load it, but the question is whether or not i want to get into shooting it

    What other calibers do you have? And if anything, it'll give you excuse to get a SAW with your belt fed infatuation.
