Found a website for a shop out of Tucson AZ selling crates of 5.45 x 39 surplus Russian, 1980, production for $238 per crate of 2160 rounds (ie 2 cans) I have not found a better price anywhere.
The shipping to me here in Denver was $32 (UPS Ground) which seemed reasonable as well, instead of jacked up to pad the margin.
I'll post shipping info once I get confirmation it's on it's way. That's how I judge an online shop. UPS is UPS and ground transport takes as long as it takes, (until someone comes up with a decent matter transporter) but if it takes more than a day to pull and ship an order for one crate of ammo...
In any case, if this is a round you shoot, I have yet to come across a better price per round.

It's too easy sometimes to give in to despair, unless, of course, youre talking about politics, in which case you don't really have any other option. Mike Littwin
