    Depends on the Shipping charges. I find these deals are usually made null by how much it costs to ship that much weight.

    Be sure to find out that cost and then compare it to a local "deal".

    Even factoring in shipping - that does sound well useful. I tend to stick to 9mm (cheapskate here) and so doubt I'd ''bite''. Can't really better that tho.... unless that price at a gun show - then ''vroom'' - I am buying!!

    ExSoldier, I tried to find this cause it sounded like a great deal. But, the only thing I could find was $8.99 @ for 20 boxes or $179.80 per 1000. Am I missin' something here?

    I screwed up. One reason I'm not a math teacher! I still ordered 10 boxes today for just a hair over $100 including shipping. My shooting "season" is nearly done anyway. I don't do the outdoor IDPA courses in the summer since I'm a former (multiple times) heat casualty (and it nearly killed me, so I'm susceptible) from the military. I don't shoot summers in South Florida outdoors. Time for me to start teaching for the CCW permit again, anyway.

    Here's a good list of Ammo dealers. I have tried the Black Hills ammo in the Re man stuff. Works VERY WELL in all my full autos ...the 45 acp is very good as well....
    Just a thought in case you'd like to look at the site
