$149.99 for 500 rounds...BUT ended up being .27 per round using discount code PKA for a 10% discount and free shipping...I just ordered 1000 rounds for $270 shipped ...
This has always performed beyond my expectations, as far as being very accurate in my .223 Wylde build...seems like premium ammo (while not match ammo per se) at a reasonable price point.

Not sure if this is the same ammo, carton is marked "Tactical," not "TAC." It's $269/case (that's $.27/rd for residents of Rio Linda) with free shipping:

I followed the link to TargetSportsUSA, and read the reviews and Q & A. It seems that this ammo is rebranded XM193 from Lake City. And it may actually be 5.56, not .223. Read the details and answers given here:

I flagged that earlier - it's actually my question in the FAQ they clarified to be 223.

"Question:Question above noted this is LC 5.56 relabeled as 223. As such it should not be safe to use is a 223 chamber bolt action per SAAMI. Can you confirm the mixed info here? - stanley (07/18/2019)
Response:Hi Stanley, sorry about that mix up. We have confirmed that this 223 ammo is made by Lake City by Norma standards and it is .223 not 5.56mm. Thank you"

Decent deal if wasn't for the tax. All things considered I would rather just order from sgammo. Their winchester 5.56 62GR made in Sweden is pretty good stuff.

Any idea how the Sweden 62grain compares to Magtech 62gr?

Never tried the magtec 62gr, but I went with the winchester based on it being around 100 fps faster. I don’t remember the source but supposedly the stuff is made by lapua with a winchester brass stamp.
