for me and all of my pistols and rifles 500 - 1000 rounds each calibre. for the larger rifles 375 and above 500 rounds. i like to shoot a lot. for this 5.7x28 i currently purchase as much as i can everywhere i go. right now prices go from 35.00 per 50 to as much as 100.00 per 50 for some of the special rounds.

I found this funny you guys might as well. So I go to my local gun store today and to my surprise they had FN 5.7X28 SS197 40GR ammo actually on the shelf. The funny part is they were asking $50.00 a box. So I was talking to one of the sales reps and I was telling him I had a few boxes of FN 5.7X28 SS198 LE/MIL restricted ammo if he was interested. He has a couple of P90's and a former Marine but he says he doesn't have the dough but I should talk to the owner. I talk to the owner and he says he is interested and I asked him what will you give for it by the box. He says he will pay me what he can get it for. So I ask what can he get it for. So he gets on the computer and after a few minutes he say I can get it for $35.00 a box $600.00 something a case (1000rds) he also said that no one seems to be selling it or shipping it at the moment. I kind of laughed but I thought it was funny that he "can get" restricted ammo for $35 a box but is selling the regulaur ammo at $50 a box, I wonder what that cost him...... must be a nice profit margin.......

Sounds like any store. I got a FNX 9 mag on accident for my FNS 9 and thy aren't compatible. Tried to sell it at the gun show for $20 at a store with one in the case for $45 and they said they just couldn't take the risk.
