I like this place also

Is your rifle chambered for .223 or 5.56mm NATO? They are different rounds. Here is some info and you may already be more informed than I am but its safer to have more info than less I say. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.223_Remington

Most of the links you already have are good but I also like the Sportsmansguide. Either ammo can also be bought here at decent pricing and shipping, being their annual "club member" you can split order over $150 into 4 payments plus a lot of $10 off coupons to offset shipping. Their shipping is usually cheaper than other online ammo dealers too. I got my Russian 7.62x54R, 880 rnds shipped for $165. http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/b...96&s=907&stk=1 Funny thing they mix up .223 and 5.56 as same but you can tell by the listing name of what you'll need.

M&P, Just a suggestion before you go the "online" route and pay shipping fees on very heavy pakages, please check your local shops. I may be unusually fortunate to have a local gun shop that keeps their prices reasonable and consequently, they sell a lot of stuff. That helps them stay in business this year, next year, and beyond. Because of that, local shooters have a place to by guns, holsters, ammo, tacticle gear, even 511 clothing and duty gear, and anything else you want, all for decent prices.
Prices on ammo do varry, so I make it a point to stop in every two or three weeks and check things out. If I see good prices I ammo I can use, I grab a case even if I dont need it right then.
I don't know what your situation is there in PA, maybe its not an option. But please if it is, support your local businesses if you can.
