Both .223 55 grain. The shape on the first kind looks shorter and rounded at the tip as opposed to the more pointed tip and longer length of the latter. Possibly it is just a generic photo? Would both of these work? I appreciate any help.

Midway USA and Sportsman Guide have good ammo prices. The first one you listed is a bullet that has been pulled out of a surplus cartridge, the second is just bulk ammo that may or may not be worth a damn. If not reloading buy the second, but don't be surprised if a lot of it won't fire or load correctly.

quote: any suggestions on a good conversion kit?
I have the CMMG kit that Wick posted and it runs like a top. It's not insanely accurate since the twist rate isn't set up for 22lr, but it allows you to shoot for cheap.
If you're a handloader, that first link is actually a really good price. Obviously if you don't handload, then buying 1000 pulled bullets won't help you unless you have a strong arm and can throw them 3000 fps .
You also need to decide if you're comfortable running steel in your gun. Some people say it's harder on parts, and I would have to agree. But I also don't mind running it occasionally since it's so dirt cheap. Some ARs will be a bit picky and not run steel but most of them will as long as they are properly lubed.
