Turner's has a sale on XM193 for $3.98 per 20 round box from Thurs to Wed. That's $99.50 for 500 rounds. I bought a box and a half this morning from the Riverside location. Riverside has Lot 88.

That's pretty spendy for LC. You might try Miwall...XM193 for $174.95/K and XM855 green tip for $10 more.

I didn't go to the last OC Fairgrounds show and MiWallCorp/Outdoormarksman.com is out of stock online for XM193. Granted they do have XM855 in stock and shipping isn't too bad at $18.72 for 1000 rounds ($203.67 total).

Oh, I just noticed why that XM855 is cheaper than usual. It's bulk packed, mixed lots. I prefer same lot for storage.

The mixed lot loose packed XM193 and XM855 has been known to have more QC issues than the 20 round boxed stuff. It's prob still fine for practice, but I would suggest inspecting the rounds before firing.
