LOL...I find this Funny. All ammo has become hard to find. Due to Ultra high demand and the Government buying up or bloking importation. It's simple Supply and Demand. $249.99 is not unreasoable concidering where the market is right now. 7.62x39 ammo is completely gone and when it does show up it is $300+ for a 1000 round case. There is only one shop around us that has 5.45 ammo besides Gunheaven and they want $279.99 for a tin. Not trying to be rude. But people need to wake up. If you need this ammo I wouldn't wait. I have talked to every company that sells this ammo online and Everyone says they are out of stock and have no idea when they'll see more.
This ammo was coming out of Ukraine ro George Russia. Both of those contries are going through massive political unrest and nothing will be coming out of them for who knows how long. I wouldn't wait if you need it.
