Is that supposed to be a good price? With shipping, that is .66 a round. I have been buying it for .30 to .65 for a box or more. Bought a few boxes yesterday for .45 a round.

Here's some Federal BTHP's for about 50 cents a round delivered. Not bad.

Looks like 500 rounds for $500? That's uh, carry the nought, uh, $1 per round.

Here's 5.56 for half that price:

And here's .223 for $0.47 / round:

http://palmettostatearmory.com/index...23af-30rd.html

In stock, as of now.

Ridiculous that we even have to have this discussion. Left handed way to gun control.

They still suck. I need 9 mm and I used to pay .20/round and now I can't find less than .42 and then add shipping on top. I am down to 700 range rounds and 750 hollow points that I keep on hand (just in case). My range time is seriously suffering g as I like to shoot 300 rounds or so at the range each time I go. 22lr is even worse. I need mini-mags!!!!! Cheaperthandirt.com seems to be the only place that has them. No wonder as they are listing the pri e at over $40/100.

Cabelas had a sh*tload of 556. Wish I held out instead of "panic buying" at the time.

Just bought 2 50 round boxes of Herter's 9mm Luger from cabelas Herter's for $13.95 less 10% coupon. It's nylon jacketed, aluminum cased, never used any of this, but I expect it will go BANG!
No 22 to be had this afternoon.
No 30-30, Winchester or Remington or Federal not one round to be had! Glad I picked up 40 rounds at the gun show last weekend.

Added a 3-9x40 scope to my Marlin 30-30.
