This ammo comes from South Africa. I've used their 100 grain soft tip .243 ammo with fine results. Very good accurasy and predictable lethal performance on mule deer.

$8.57 .243 100 grain
$8.78 .270 130 grain
$8.78 .270 150 grain

$11.89 300 Win MAG 220 grain

$10.24 303 Brit 174 full metal jacket

These prices are like going back in time 15 years.

PMP (http://www.pmp.co.za/products.htm) (Pretoria Metal Pressings) is part of Denel, the SA arms company. It's good stuff - apart from my handloads and carry ammo, I used to use the stuff all the time when living in South Africa - usually shot the ammo in order to scavenge the brass for reloading.

I've shot a bunch of their 180gr SP 303 British fodder. It was reasonably accurate but SLOW - chrono'ed out of two different No4Mk1's @ 2200fps at seven yards.... That's a full 200fps below MkVII spec (174gr @ 2440).

On the good side, their brass is top-notch stuff - well worth keeping and reloading.
