Buddy of mine called me up yesterday, told me a colonel friend of his bought 7000 rounds of lake city brass 223 from a military auction in Texas for 50 bucks. Have you heard of this place?

Lake City

I would hazard a guess that it's the place in Texas that's in question. All gun lovers know the reference to Lake City is an arsenal.
