I've been looking everywhere for MK262 or Black Hills White Box (both 77gr 5.56). Anybody have a source for this stuff?

Vets bring it back now and then.
It isn't available commercially unless you are law enforcement and your rangemaster can source the product for you.

Black Hills offers the ammunition as new production and reloaded/remanufactured.
You want the stuff with a cannelure, it is the same as the MK262Mkll current issue.

Cabelas gets in small lots of factory seconds from time to time. They never list it in their catalogs, but they are sent out to the stores in limited numbers. I have 150 rounds I found in Post Falls, Idaho. It has the cannelure.

The only other source is "liberated" ammo from returning soldiers, but that's an unreliable source and not strictly legal.

Yeah, the ammo gods were smiling on me that day. I've only ever been there once, but apparently it was the right day to go.

I can never find anything worthwhile in their store!

We are getting lots of transfers from them though...so I guess that's good.

77gr SMK w/can, on top of a full charge of Varget, using 556 brass, and a wolf 223 primer. They are a little harder and take the extra pressure better.

Then again, if you use a published data for Varget, you are only about 40-50fps slower than the MK262. Close enough for me.

There are a couple different recipes, I have one for 16" barrels and less and one for 16" barrels and longer. The Sierra 77gr SMK bullet with a cannular is the correct bullet for M262, not the standard 77gr SMK or the Nosler 77gr. I use either match or military primers depending on which recipe and rifle it's going into.

Not true, Blackhills now manufactures new M262 for sale to all individuals, it's spendy as well as hard to find, as it sells out quickly. They still sell seconds but their QC is so good they never have much to sell as it takes BH forever to get any substantial quanities to make it worth it to sell.

ETA, Hornady does not sell TAP 556, to civilians only LEO on department letter head or military.

to tell you the truth unless you are set on shooting long range(500 yards plus) you won't gain much using mk262 considering the price-you'd be better off at 300 yards and less using 69 gr ammo-not that it is cheap either. the only road to affordable match grade ammo is to reload yourself.
