Yes, it does. I have so many 223's loaded I don't think I could shoot them all before I die..... Got on a 223 kick a couple years back and loaded a gob. Looked in the ammunition cabinet. Some are dated 2009. Hundreds hell, thousands. Same with 308's. Cabelas loves me, I buy lots of ammunition boxes.
Interestingly, I don't own an AR, just a Savage 223 bolt rifle and my benchrest 223.
I'm a suker for a good deal on brass and usually Wideners has good deals on 308 and 223 LC OFMB. Been known to buy a couple thousand at a crack.
IMO, you can't have enough 45 Auto and 45LC's.
