Chaos311Clarity laughs at your minuscule ammo stockpile.  He gets it by the drum:

XM855BAR is 5.56x45mm 62 gr.  Yea that would be quite a bit of fun with an AR-15.

Make sure you also check out Chaos’ dope YouTube channel by the same name.

Local gun-shop here in Raleigh gets these drums, and sells it by the handful.

Would love to know how much you actually save by getting it in bulk like that.

Last I saw, it was ~$3600 for the drum+ $200 shipping. Which comes out to just a hair more than $0.30/rd, which is about what I pay for M855 in 1000rd cans.

i have never looked for a drum but the shipping always brings it to the same as gun store prices where i live.

I assume you can only get this direct from the manufacturer?

Now what would be scary is if the guy has enough magazines to hold every round, or enough links to feed an M249. ;-)

Sure it would be fun with an AR15, but how much fun can one really have with a semi automatic rifle and 12,500 rounds of glorious M855. I agree with Jim P, think big and run it through an M249, MG4, or a Negev :)

Damn that’s a lot of ammo. Roughly estimated, that can must weigh at minimum 480lbs, given that a 420rnd can of XM855 weighs 16lbs. Honestly, I’d rather have boxes and cans. That or a trustworthy delivery crew.

Max October 30, 2012 at 02:43 pm

wow. Must be fricken heavy…

Right, now lets fill it with petrol and set it alight.

I wonder if that is for training/practice, or is he just another crazy doomsday prepper who prob sucks at shooting?

Reply

Jim P. October 31, 2012 at 12:21 am

Even if he sucks at shooting — 12,500 rounds gives you a lot of room for error. :-D
