    Aoraki .223 ammo

    Has this Geco ammo arrived yet and has anyone tried it?

    Looks to be the cheapest bulk .223 in NZ?

    At what pricing is it the cheapest bulk in NZ? I can only find it listed on the facebook site at over a buck a round, is there another cheaper avenue?

    I haven't tried it, but have some coming.

    I can still reload for cheaper,(time not counted) so MAY continue, however if it's accurate maybe I'll swap. Bit of a fence sitter at the moment.

    I am not paying for or using it. But I get the brass.

    I am just a bit sick of prepping all my mil spec brass. I have a heap done that should last me a fair while. Apart from time, I can load .223 for the cost of primer and projectile until my free brass and powder run out. I got heaps of projectiles off Master Toby for a song a while back.

    I've got 300 of the 55gr on the way once the mail order form gets through (which entertainingly got submitted then I got a call from the Arms Officer as the accepting person didn't record that they had whitnessed my FAL properly, and they had no record of who it actually was to check with them so I had to go back in to show my FAL AGAIN!)

    I got 2k of the 63gr .223 and 1k of the 124gr 9mm on the way.
    + 60 or so of the 56gr express .223
    Will let you guys know how I find this ammo in 3-4 AR's.
    I'm too bad of a shot with the pistol to test the 9mm ammo for you guys haha

    I have emailed them a couple times and have had no reply. Maybe I will hear something after the holidays.

    Dont have facebook. I have decided to just load it now as there will be less hassle with frigging forms etc, and I need the ammo sooner than later.

    I've had this issue time and time again with them, so much so that I've missed out on stuff, just keep sending them emails.

    Ammo turned up today was lucky that it did before tomorrow!
