Ok I’m looking to buy several thousand rounds of 223/556 ammo to stash away. 

Looking for recommendations as to brand, best cartridge, best packaging, best price?

I use targetsportsusaDOTcom

I'd stick with Federal xm193.  Cheap and easy.

Packaging?  Ammo cans.  Better than cardboard boxes. 

Second this.  They have bulk orders on a lot of 62 grain 556 as well.  I would also recommend picking up some silica gel or something similar as well.

I have also had good luck with TargetSports, 9mm, .45 and 5.56mm. 

I've shot thousands of rounds of .223 by S&B (9 & 45 too). However, it has a steel core (attracts a magnet) so not optimal for my local indoor range. 

Check out bonefronggunclub.com for higher end 5.56 (Gold Dot, MK318 etc.).  Also similar products in 9mm & .45. 

Once upon a time G&R Tac offered good deals on Black Hills 5.56mm, but it's been awhile (well a decade or so) but it was good M193.

I've never bought or fired and ComBloc 5.56 (or any other caliber) ammo.  Beyond a spam can of PRC 7.62x39 bought at the Pomona Fair Grounds gunshots in California in the 80's.  Too its credit, it fire well last year in an AKM type, which I first cleaned with boiling water.  Would not do that in my ARs.  

In today's political climate, but early and often. Max out your gun budget and climate controlled storage. It'll probably never been cheaper. 

YMMV

G&R and Targetsports both have MEN 5.56 and IIRC 9mm for similar pricing. TS does free shipping on case lots, so that saves you a lot when you're ordering a bunch.

Is S&B steel core or a bi-metal jacket? (They attract magnets,too).

I REALLY appreciate the replies. Palmetto has Federal M193 on stripper clips for 129.00 per 420 shipped in an ammo can.

Should be a rebate on most Federal ammo as well.

Not specific to your request but a great discussion on where to get ammo one you decide what to get:

Wolf Gold can be found on occasion for like $305 shipped for 1,000 rounds. This stuff is labeled as 55 gr .223, but it's velocities are pretty much in the m193 ball park. This is my personal favie as you can get it from SG Ammo pre packaged in cans for only a few dollars more typically.

+1 all of this. BFGC has decent prices on those higher end products as well.

Respectfully suggest you try the AmmoSeek app.

I’ve used AmmoSeek. But just the website. 

Downloaded the app  a couple of hours ago. So much nicer and easier to use than the website. It’s 0230 and I haven’t been to sleep yet because I’ve been playing with it since 0015 this morning.
