Midway has the same IMI M855 for 50 cents a round. Check out ammoseek.com, they list the retailers selling prices.

And my wife asked my why I needed so much ammo. She doesn't feel bad about the purchases now. I picked up 1000 rds of 9mm yesterday and have another 1000 on the way.

Let me ask this...

If there is any 380/45/38/40 still on the shelves should I jump on it?
I was told by our ammo dept. manager that most factories have switched to full time 9mm and 223/556 production to the exclusion of everything else.

Ammo prices

Iíll never forget what happened during the last Democratic Presidency. Timing being everything, I was out of the country on business for 6 weeks arriving home to find my gun safe ripped out of the basement through the floor & 20 years of stockpiled ammo purchases all gone...
When I went to Walmart to pick up some .45 ACP for my P-220 (I was traveling with it, or it would have been gone too!). I was blown away at double the cost of what I was used to paying! Talked to a couple of ammo manufacturers and was told it was all being purchased and stockpiled by our Government, even hollow points! Couldnít stop gun sales, so they locked down the ammo! Was told the
I have restocked more than ever before, especially after what happened in Virginia recently. Thinking if TSHF I could at least find 9mm anywhere so I bought match grade 9mm barrels & springs for my P226ís & P229ís. Never thought this particular mess would happen, or things would go like they have, 9mm more than .45ACP?
I have plenty of anything 9mm up + Rifle & plenty of 12 Gauge, luckily I went too far at the time with 9mm sales based on my strategy. Iíll never get caught short again...
