Walmart about $200-225. Save your brass and reload it for about $125/500 rounds.

I ordered some elcheapo Silver Bear 230gr FMJ in steel cases (non reloadable) the other day for $155 with about $15 more for shipping. I will say, the copper coating on the lead looks reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaly thin. The steel cases are zinc-plated though. I will run some this weekend, but i spect it will be fine for range/emergency use.

Ordered it from Bulkammo.com and was happy with delivery speed and packing.

I was off on my mental math, reload for about $90.

I take it you are loading cast for that price. I think I am loading for $8 a box (so 80 for 500) I get mine cast by a local guy so I am saving sales tax and shipping. Bulk primers and powder whenever I find a good deal

I've been getting Federal at Wal-Mart for $29.96 per 100. That would be $150 for 500.
