Excuse to hike prices locally...
Yeah I'm SURE "DICK'S" is hoping you'll fall for it and buy a couple of cases EACH of your fav calibers. It's bull. Mil-Spec "ball" ammo is loaded in different plants from those that load civilian ammo. You can tell this by looking at the base of a military round. You'll find markings that indicate lot # but nothing linking it to a specific civilian manufacturer, like Remington. This is for the bulk combat ammo. Specialty ammo is different. Example: Military sniper rifles in .308 are all calibrated for 168gr BTHP Match ammo and are typically supplied by either Winchester or Federal. Some Special Ops units who fight terrorists (specifically) will use 45 JHP loads. They can do this because the Hague Convention doesn't put terrorists into the category of uniformed soldier, IIRC. Anyway, I know that SOME SpecOps use 45 hollow points.:congrats:
