The cheap Russian steel case is at least $300. to $400.:chris:

Hey barrykay, Miwall sets up at the Crossroads shows and they have 1k round PMC cases for about $360 out the door, tax included.

Where do you shop?

Saym14,
PMC FMJ was going for $300/1000 rounds at theMiwall table at the Sacramento gun show last month. I think the total with local tax was $327 OTD.

ATG has been pretty good to me as of late. Real hassle free, and I don't stand in line, which I completely hate.

I picked up a case of PMC Bronze at the last Fresno Gun Show for $310.00
OTD.

Two ammo dealers were having an ammo war. (Sunday is the day to buy ammo)

When you tack on
Gunshow entry ticket + Driving + Parking, then you can add the price of the $400/1000rd .223Rem.

The last time I paid $400+tax at the show for 1000rd of PMC. Prior to that (it was at least 2 years ago) I paid something like $130/500rd of Miwall reloads in LC brass.

I still buy my ammo online, it cheaper and more convenient. The only reloads I buy is from Miwall and Load-X. I haven't had any problems from them.

If I'm going to the Gunshow for other reasons, then the extra cost is null. I don't go there just for ammo b/c it doesn't make economical sense.

thanks all - I may be going to a show for other items and to browse. so it would be worth it to pick up 1000 for 310 or so. I did get PMC shipped to me for 368

I just got a case of PMC for $370.00. Not to go off topic but what kind of groups are you guys getting with PMC in a .223 AR?

Really?.......Last time I went to one in Fresno (a couple of years ago) all the popular calibers where sold out by noon on Sat. Do they typically bring in more stock on Sunday?

havent been in years - with the run on Ammo lately I was afraid Sunday would be sold out too.

You know, it's still the same dealers with the same crap but lately there have
been a few new dealers making the scene.

For some odd reason both ammo dealers had WAY too much .223 left on Sunday. :D

That's correct, plus tax. Did'nt catch the name of the vendor. Is Miwall the vendor with the green and orange rack set-up? If so you would be correct again! Thanks. ;)
