I get it for a bit less than that. More like $9.99 to $11.49..
Extended Edit: the only thing keeping me from getting one right now is I can't find one(17HMR) in a Semi-Auto.. In 22 Mag., the Only one is the CZ512,..Bolt guns in either caliber are a bit better price wise...
Correction:Alexander arms makes an AR in 17, for $1200...
The Ruger 10/22 in 22Mag. has been discontinued, as is the Remington 597 in 17 as well. It's the CZ in 22Mag.( 5 and 10 Rd. Mags) or the Alexander Arms, with 10 & 15 Round mags....or the Excel Arms/Mitchell Arms Black lightning(9 rd AR in 22Mag., about $600 ish,..the sell an 8" Blowback pistol as well, as pistol carbines on .30 Carbine, 5.7X28, and .22LR( that uses Ruger BX-25 mags...)
I can get 250Rds. Of it in an Ammo can for $48...
