Before the Chinese released the plague on the Earth I used to get that for 17 bucks for a 500 round box. :(

I doubt we'll ever see those prices again :cry:

Got lucky a week ago and found Brownells had AA4350 in stock, got 4lbs for $142/shipped, $35.50 each and not a bad price at all considering ....

AA4350 is similar to H4350 and IMR4350, but there are load differences to be aware of, as with most "similar" powders. 

 

Will test out tomorrow @ 400 to 700 yards under Nosler RDF 105s loaded in the Ruger .243Win.

Local F&S has plenty of 9mm Blazer now. The only problem is it’s aluminum case and $30 a box. The Blazer brass they had was $21 a box. Wtf??? I’ll pass. And I’m sure most will as well. Seeing a lot on GB going for about $20 a box now.

If any of you are looking for quantity over quality you can pick up 12 thousand rounds of XM855 (5.56x45 NATO) for around 3,000 dollars (.24 cents a round).

However it is XM855 the X means that it was rejected from the factory due to defects. I don’t recommend it; however, ammo is ammo if you’re that desperate.

I found a few listing on some websites including ammoland, classic firearms and some other sites. The ammo is Federal coming from lake city. I’ve specifically seen it from there. I’m  sure a quick search will produce some results for “12,500 rounds of XM855”
