Budget bullet for 223

Hi there, i'm looking for a bullet(prefferbly a soft point or hollow point) thats fairly cheap to buy in my DCM AR-15 at the local high power match. I'm fairly new, so i'm not looking for one hole groups, not that i wouldn't like them. Also, the range is only 200 yards for all the positions, so it doesn't need a great ballistic coefitient or to be a heavy bullet. The reason for it being an expanding bullet(but wont limit myself to) is in case i use the DCM gun for hunting, or in my varmint/target AR-15.

thanks for any help!

I recently bought 1,000 of the Hornady .224 55 gr spire point, this is a soft point bullet, very accurate and at a very reasonable price, currently $59.69 per thousand.

Here's what I can do with it in my AR-15 at 100 yds.

Midway also had a sale on winchester 55 grain soft point bullets. I got 1,000 for 49.49+ shipping. My past experience has been, these shoot pretty well for mad minute rattle battles!

They're going to get their butts kicked over there this election. How come people can't spell and use words correctly?
