    You fellas think $320 is a decent buy on 1000 rnds of federal xm193? If not does anyone know where I could buy it cheaper?

    Not a bad price, particularly if it is without sales tax and free shipping.

    You could get it cheaper by the pallet but $.32 per round is pretty good. Some online sites may have it cheaper in bulk packaging but unless you get free shipping you won't beat your price by more than a few dollars. Much better to spend a bit extra and keep your local LGS in business and friendly...;)

    That's only about $40-$60 more per 500 than steel cased stuff. Not bad.

    I just purchased 300 rounds of Hornady Steel Match at Academy for $ 149.00. 52 gr BTHP. I've heard good things about this ammunition.

    It came in a reusable plastic ammo box with a carry handle. These are popping up everywhere. Academy has 9mm, .40 SW, .45 acp, CCI .22 lr. Big assortment.

    Anyhow, 2 cents worth.

    Thats a decent price for around my parts,, at my LGS Privi has been $300 per 1k I usaully head for Cabelas when they have a door buster sale and grab steel cased when its on sale for $3.99 and try to use a coupon for the $20 off. I usually end up with 1k rounds for $180 bucks or herters or Tula Have to watch the sales and stock up when they have em.. Watch their bargain cave sales too.

    I haven't seen Herter's/Tula for $3.99 since last fall. Maybe haven't been looking hard enough.

    No I haven't either, The last two times it has been $4.49 which still isn't too bad. I am hoping they have another $3.99 sale. It had gone back and forth last year, I am keeping my fingers crossed that they have an overstock again. Its usually only that price when its a bargain cave sale at the same time as a door buster.

    My g/f HATES cabelas lol I go there two or three times a week and am alwasy scouring the store for deals and bargains lol

    Luckily I still have prob 5-6k rounds of .223 stocked up so I don't need to buy unless there is a good sale.

    Yeah I have to go in there at least once a week. Their regular prices are high but the sales are good. Yesterday I scored at my Walmart a mile away, 9mm Federal Champion $20/100 and American Eagle .223, $7/20.

    Thats a good price for 9mm brass.. Figures when I don't really need any :eek:

    If you are at Cabelas that much I'm sure you already know but you really have to watch them, there was a while there you could find three different prices for stuff. Catalog, net and store would all have a different privce for the same thing.. they seem to have it mostly fixed now. The cashiers were hating me for a while, I would always have them matching the catalog or the net, buy hey a few bucks adds up when your there that much.. Enough so I get the hard cover catalogs lol
