i didn't realize bullets had gone up that much. i bought several thousand winchester FMJ 230g about this time last year and got them for $65/1000, maybe less, i don't recall. Now they're $76/1000

That's an everyday price at Cabela's ($29.99 / 500) and their shipping is by price, not weight...$13.95 is max shipping regardless of number of boxes you buy.

tricky, note that those bullets are PLATED not FMJ

imho, an actual jacket is worth the few extra bucks

Apart from inflation, one must always remember that there is a commodity price, lead in this case, that can fluctuate significantly. This is probably more observable in buying lead shot, but is a factor in bullet prices. I grabbed a couple thousand of those same 230 gr bullets before the last price increase- Zero had them for $96 for 2K, SHIPPED....now that's cheap.

I didn't know that about Cabelas. Good info to have! Thanks! I've bought lots of stuff from Midway and I'm sure I will again in the future. But if Cabelas has a better shipping rate it sure makes your price/bullet go down.

Cabela's price for 1000 230 gr. .45ACP Rainier's would be $68.73 or so, shipped.

Have you looked at free shipping from
Graf's http://www.grafs.com/

Grafs is higher than midway. Even when you take shipping into account.
They also screwed up 2 of the 3 orders I placed with them.
No thanks.
Midway has never screwed up on me, and I have done my share of business with them in the last few years.
Also if you buy true JHP, powder valley is quite a bit cheaper than midway.

Estate sales are where you get the best deals.

Cabel's price for 1k Rainier RN 230g $74.73

Midway sale price shiped to me here in CO $79.11

Looks like Cabela's wins here.
