Just curious what those with the "evil" black rifles are keeping for a rainy day. I don't have a large amount on hand as I generally use it up when I buy it. But I did start to put a few boxes of M193 and M855 away for a rainy day. But, since I have a bolt in .223, I started saving more of the .223 than the 5.56. My round of choice for HD is the Black Hills SP in .223. I want expansion in close quarters. The bulk of my ammo put aside is FMJ's with a mixture of .223 and 5.56. I also have some MK318 but really don't see much of a need for it in a SD/HD situation. Curious what others prefer in their AR's for HD and SHTF. FYI, my rifle has a 16" barrel with a 1:9 twist which is why I primarily buy the M193 and M855. Anyway, just curious what others select for ammo in their AR's and why. I'm always looking for a better round. But, with the cost of ammo, and lack thereof, I usually stick to FMJ's. Bonded rounds seem to be getting ridiculously expensive and I don't think it's logical to stock them up for SHTF. Unless your rich, which I am not.
