223 ammo, so if you fire 6000 rds a year of say, 14c a round cruddy 223, you probably need a new ($100) barrel, and you've spent $840 on ammo. the guy who fired 5000 rds of .22, and 1000 rds of Winchester bulkpack ball spent about $200. $900 will buy a whole BUNCH of .22 units, or one unit and a good 223 suppressor, to include the $200 tax.

Firing 22 rimfire through your conversion unit is not a substitute for shooting full power 223 loads. Too many differences. If a person shoots a LOT, re-barreling expense is just something that we have to plan for.

Why do you worry about it since you can't legally shoot a firearm anyway.

You forget that most of his "rifle drills" are in pistol ranges, so there probably isn't a significant difference between .22 LR and .223, POI-wise at 60 feet.

It all depends on your budget, doesn’t it?

if they can afford it, then your point is moot. Some people have the means to purchase a great deal of ammo, shoot it, and still have enough disposable income to buy barrels, rifles, suppressors, and other items.

everyone has a different situation and they need to do what they feel is correct.

22 \mmo's about 8x cheapern' cheapest 223 ammo
About 3X nowadays, but I'm not buying either one right now regardless. I actually threw in a 1,400-round Remington "bucket-o-bullets" with a 22 pistol I put out on consignment earlier this week.
