    Anybody know of a good place to buy 11s at a fair price? How can a little cap cost 3 times what a .22 lr costs? Last ones I got were $6 a tin from my favorite gun shop, not the end of the world but really, .06 cents apiece?

    1000

    Unless your buying 1000 there is not much of a price break , and then if your ordering them for shipping you got HAZMAT of $25 on top of it , so your $6 is about normal .
    Ideally , you have your gunshop order them by the 1000 when they order ammo , then you are looking at about $45 per 1000 on average . Not much help I know but thats my take on it .:D
