    Went to the store today and in my usual fashion I did not buy ammo until I compared prices but they were odd at my gun store, What do you guy's think:

    .223 1000rds in a generic military can (just plain I don't think it was lake city) $450.00

    7.62x39 Century Arms stuff (steel) 20rds 5.00

    50 BMG could not get a name but it was in an orange box 10rds for 50.00

    Wait, are you saying you paid $45 a hundred for surplus 223? Holy smokes I'm glad I'm a reloader!

    A bit high, but not terribly far off. I recently bought 500 GA Arms reloaded .223 for $165 and call that a good deal nowadays.

    You mean that my $39 800 rds of surplus 8mm has gone up that much.
    Sure glad I cast and reload + I use cheap surplus powder you can't find anymore.
    Got enough to last me the rest of my days + enough lead alloy for two lifetimes.

    You could get LC07 stamped 5.56 for about $380.

    It would be much cheaper at AIM, $66 per $200:
    Or it would be roughly the same price as Remington .223:

    Its $5 flat rate shipping for a limited time at Cabelas.


    Just giving you some options. :scrutiny:

    That stuff at Cabelas is all on backorder as far as I can see.

    I just paid $346 delivered for 1000 rounds of Prvi Partizan ammo from AIM. That's good ammo.
