So i have the Stag on order and it should be here in a week in a half or so. It is chambered in 5.56. I have been looking at ammo in bulk and it looks like the .223 is cheaper than the 5.56. So my question is, for just plinking do you mainly shoot .223 because of cost? or if not why? Thanks for all the input.

i reload in .223 for both plinking and match loads.

buying my materials in bulk for my plinking stuff i can load for about $140 per 1k rounds and my loads are more accurate than anything i have bought

FWIW i do not include me setup expenses which was about $500 including a work station. three sets of dies Calipers, Tumbler Micrometer. media manuals, ect ect ect.

i scavage most of my brass from a local indoor range since its all normally once fired. most reloaders pick up their brass even if they don't plan on reloading and recycle it for cash to off set the cost of buying new brass or other materials.

best part about reloading is you can fine tune the load to your rilfe to make it more accurate.
