I ordered a UICW months ago. Magpul sold their entire lot to LWRC I thought who is holding them hostage apparently, lol.

I have had great results with PRI mags.

Do not know if they have any in stock right now.

Price Drop? That's more like it!

I got 11 boxes... combat load + 10 extra.

PRI mags will not work in the new LWRCI M6.8 line of rifles. The magwell dimensions are larger and these rifles will only accept 6.8 Pmags.

For multical lowers, though, I agree that PRI mags yield good results.

The term "combat load" refers to the amount of rounds. When I was in the military, that meant 7 loaded magazines (1 in the weapon, 6 in your ammo pouches) x 30 rounds ea = 210 rounds. 210 rounds = 1 combat load.

Blackout is still cheaper by the box. They are going to REALLY have to come down in price for the 6.8 before I make another leap at 6.8.

I got some too, thanks for the heads up on the 90gr GD. It's hard to watch every online ammo dealer constantly, that's one of the reasons I enjoy the 68 forums so much. Good to have a solid team watching out for each other, and the folks I've run across here are top notch. Now if we could just hear something concrete on a dealer date for delivery of the Gen 2 68 UCIWs!!!
I have no doubts this is going to be more than worth the wait. Just want to see mine so I can begin the SBR paperwork lol!!!!

I use www.gunbot.net to keep track of low ammo prices.

Appreciate the tip brother. I will check into that.
This is exactly what I was trying to express, this (LWRCI and its customers) community works together, rather than arguing over things we have no control.
I am a LWRCI customer for life, and anyone who gets some shooting done with one will quickly realize their AR's are built to last SEVERAL lifetimes!!!!
What more can one ask for?

Well, it would be nice to be out shooting the 68 UCIW I have had on order since mid January. But it will arrive when LWRCI has it fully ready, instead of half assing the gun like some AR companies have done (letting their customers have guns with constant problems) to make as much money as possible in the current market craze.
I am waiting anxiously, yet patiently!

This ammo is stupid accurate out of my Shilen Ultramatch barrel. I shot several 5-rd groups today that were 1/2-5/8". Given the documented performance on game and this level of accuracy I think this stuff is well worth the price. I'm sure the LE Distributor price will be much lower once it starts shipping to them.
