    The price is way too high. At least they have it in stock. That's progress. Oh well, it doesn't really matter to me since I don't have a 556 rifle. Maybe someday. If I do obtain one at some point, I would hope prices would have come down by then.

    Oh, and welcome to DC. Hope to see you post more.

    I have a good amount on hand so I don't need them that bad...

    I'm getting it for $425 a case. I wouldn't have paid $650 at the height of the shortage.

    I would hardly call $0.65. $0.70, and a round a great price. I feel like everyone has currently marked them up this high. Looks like I'll be target shooting the cheap russian steel cased stuff for $0.25 a round for a while. At this rate, it would be cheaper to risk mucking up my internals with the steel and buying replacement parts than spending the price of a budget AR on 1k rounds.

    That was my thought as well. I did choose to be pleasant in my reply, just in case he's legit, but I have my doubts.

    An FYI, I have heard that ATK has raised all their prices. Obviously nowhere near that high, but they have gone up a bit. What I used to pay $375 for is now $50 more. Not sure if its the increase, if hats even taken effect yet, or just current climate.

    $600+ a case is just nonsense.

    Sorry if you guys think it's a high price, but it is one of the few places with inventory of it and I think it's a good deal. I've seen this ammo go for $1 or more per round before.

    Well, it's in stock JRush, and if someone needs ammo it's a source, and at least you didn't just post and bail. Nice to see you back, and welcome to DC.

    While the prices are a bit on the steep side, it's refreshing to actually see LC ammo in stock...
    I'm still not interested in anything north of 45-50 cents/rd.

    thanks for the post tho man.

    Just for a bit of clarity, may I ask your relationship to the seller? If you simply found the ammo available and genuinely felt the prices were indeed great, and thought you'd pass on this information, that's one thing. If you are somehow associated with the business, that's quite another, and something I would like to know, as a potential customer in the future.

    Not in about 6 weeks or so. And only for around 5 months or so at that. SO the prices you saw were only around for a relatively short period of time.
