Default Case of 1000 new PMC 115 grain 9mm for $200 - good deal?

Picked up a case of new manufactured 1000 rounds (20 boxes of 50 rounds each) of 115 grain PMC 9mm at the gun show for $200. Was that a good deal or did I get taken for a ride? What prices are you guys usually seeing for new 9mm for plinking/range practice?

That is what I can get Federal or Speer 9mm FMJ for. Plus tax or shipping depending on where I get it from.

For me i shoot winchester white box and around me its $22 for a hundred count box. But my next buy is gonna be BVAC 9mm and thats like $175 for a thousand rounds to see how that works.

That price is fine! Save the brass, it is good stuff. I bought 500 rounds of Ranger 124gr Nato 9x19 about a year ago for $85.00. That was a stellar deal.
Bulk shipping was 7.95. It was from Copes, one of the Forum Sponsers. They are great people. It is one of the few companies that the owner may actually pick up the phone. Thay have hooked me up big time in the past. I think it was Missy that I had asked about a Hensoldt scope and Stanlag mount for a G3. She called me about 8 months later to see if I was still looking. I bought the scope and base for $140.00. A buddy from Germany got the scope caps, can w/ all the tools and goodies for $40.00. That setup goes for $500.00 complete. They are awesome people! Their shipping has gone up to 9.95, but it is still a deal.

Contact them the next time you are looking for anything firearms related.

Yeah, no tax (and obviously no shipping from the gun show). I have the guy 2 $100 bills and carried this heavy ass case of ammo to my car.
