    Pricey!

    I was on Ammoengine.com last night to check who had .380.
    When I got my Sig P-238 I bought some PMC bronze FMJ at my gunstore (known as the highest priced in town) for $30/50.
    I figured that wasn't too bad, and I wanted to take the gun to the range.
    Last night I see Cheaper than Dirt has the exact same thing for $49.95/50.
    My, that's interesting.
    I guess that follows up on the owner's quote, "It's like playoff tickets."
    I didn't go to the playoffs either.

    Their dirt is too expensive for me!!
    We will be much better off when we learn to deal with things as they really are, instead of how we wish them to be!

    I search ammoengine quite often and cheaperthandirt has been the only place to show up for a while with 380. No way I would pay those prices. A while back I bought some Prvi Partizan from an LGS for $19.99. It fires great. They are out of it now, but between what I bought and some reloads I ordered I have enough for the wife at the range.
    I must have more 1911's. Someone donate me a Springfield EMP.

    Patience is a virtue, and good things come to those who wait.
    Our local Wal Marts have the WWB 100ct boxes of .380 auto every now and then for around $33. I've bought some in the past just because they were there. I don't have a 380 auto pistol. I'm just sayin'.

    Damn, guess I'm lucky. My LGS has Magtech for $13.99 for a box of 50. PMC Bronze is $14.99, don't know why it is more.

    Don't get swindled!

    Arugh! You got mine!

    My local W/M is starting to get a few things. I bought 6 boxes of .223 Federal yesterday because I haven't seen it for a while.
    No .380 though, and I like shooting the new Sig 238.
    I have a tiny stash, and a bunch on backorder from the usual suspects.

    ammo engine had .380 listed last friday for 19.xx i bought 4 boxes of hollow points came out to $22 a box with shipping. the gun shop where i bought my p238 was selling fmjs for $25 plus driving out to the boonies to get them. just keep checking ammoengine daily like i do. you find a deal.

    as far as ammo @ wally world mine is stocked full of .223 and has a good selection of rifle rounds but pistol rounds are still in short supply. dad picked up 6 federal bricks of .22 the other day though :-D

    The shop I like to use has .380 target ammo for 18.99 daily, and SD for $28 I think it is.
