    400rounds for $350 is it worth it. Bulk factory reloads.

    If anybody wants it for that price I can tell you where it is.

    That's my thinking. Before the elections I think you could get FMJ for around $300 a thousand. That may be a little on the low side though.

    Well if anybody is interested UFO guns in Cabot has it. Looked like about 20 boxes or so of 400rnd. I just couldn't spend that much.

    I think that's the same stuff WM was selling for $149 back in the summer.

    Under 50 cents per round for factory stuff ins't too bad. A buck a round is getting tough to swallow.

    Nothing worse than seeing the shooting community rape itself. It is bad enough anti-gun folks want to tax ammo to the point of being un-affordable.

    Capitalism is great and all but I suspect prices will level off in a few months. Thankfully I don't need any ammo now. And I will not be buying from anyone down the road that is gouging prices today just because of fear.

    Walmart in Springdale had American Eagle with brass cases for $6.47/20, no limit today. That works out to $129.40 for 400 before tax. I was surprised to see it there.
