Palmetto State Armory (PSA) is offering 600 rounds of bulk (no packaging) Lake City 5.56x45mm, XM855 (should be 62 grain but they do not mention grain weight) ammo - in a new production .50 caliber ammo can - for $239.99 plus $19 shipping to my area. The total cost was $258.99 shipped to where I live. That works out to .43 per round shipped if you only consider the ammo. I figure that an ammo can goes for about $15. Take that off of the above price and it works out to about .41 cents per round. I will not take off shipping because that has to be figured into the overall price. I did take off the cost of the ammo can because that really is something separate from the ammo. A price of .41 cents per round is the best price I have seen in several months for this ammo. I jumped on it. I guess I have started my Christmas or birthday shopping for my son's gifts a bit early.
Note, it has been on gunbot.net for over 10 hours now, they probably do not have a lot left - so if you need it you had best hurry. I do not think there is a limit. Link:
They also have 1,000 rounds of lake City M855 for $419.99, link:
That is about the last bit of ammo I can buy this year. We are repairing both of our chimneys and having our kitchen and bathroom remodeled and those will not be cheap. I hope the wife never finds out how much I have spent on ammo since this past January, with the passage of the NY SAFE Act, and the current costs of ammo, but it is a last ditch effort. After January 2014, it will become illegal for we New Yorkers to buy ammo online. Fuck Cuomo - he is not just another libturd - he is an exemplary one - a real piece of liberty and rights smashing shit.
All the best,
