I’m currently thinking what my next rifle might be. And I’m a bit torn on what caliber to aim for. I recently fired 5.56 out of my brother-in-law’s service mini-ruger 14. And that had a surprising kick to it. Still incredibly fun (first time firing anything larger then a .22), but I really way rocked back every time I fired it.
As a result, now I’m considering calibers. And I don’t actually know which is cheaper. It was 12.50 for 20 rounds of 5.56 at the range. But I didn’t think to ask about prices of other calibers. So I’m coming here, maybe some folks know more then me on this. Is 5.56/.223 generally cheaper then 7.62x39? Or is it the reverse?
