Comes to $197/500rd case with shipping to Los Angeles. It's a good deal.

I saw that as well, XM193 is becoming available again , at least for a little bit, saw retailers have already bumped their prices down twice in the last week, Im holding out an see when it may bottom out and buy then

Curious how much lower it can go. Would be nice to see some of the prices others have seen ... $4/20rds or cheaper.

$250/k will be pushing it probably, $300/k most likely, $200/k is unrealistic IMHO, its all supply and demand, if everyone buy just what you need and not make huge purchases it will help

Bought 500 rounds for 200 shipped, hopefully it's good stuff.

I'll tell you what, I'll take anyone's bet here...

There is NO WAY XM193 drops down to $300/1000 or less, out the door, in 2008. If it does, I'll buy you 500rds. If it doesn't you have to buy me 500rds. Any takers?

You're questioning if XM193 is good stuff?

This is a *****in' deal. If I didn't already have 5K round of 5.56/223, I'd jump on it.

Not to mention that S&B, Aguila and PMC are all inferior to Federal Mil-Spec 5.56 ammo.

What evidence other than your opinion supports such a claim? Personally, I believe that ammo will NEVER go back down and will continue to go up. The purchasing power of the dollar is going down, raw material costs are going up and there is greater and greater demand from China and India. I also believe that we are going to see higher levels of inflation this year. So no, I really don't think the prices are going down any time soon.

There was a post on arfcom about a BIG canceled .mil/.gov order. Thats the reason everyone has this stuff is on the market all of a sudden.

I only go to arfcom for the ammo and rimfire sections

Thanks for the link! I just bought some! Only 400 for now, I don't even have a 5.56 yet!! I have the lower, just biding my time for the right upper. Will probably get the CMMG upper in 5.56/.223, and a 6.8SPC kit from ko-tonics later.

Cheers,
Paul

All depends- if we go into a recession, or there is a worldwide recession, you just might see ammo at prices of years past.. but not many will have the funds to buy tons of it.

Cheapest i found is Privi Partisan (Wolf gold brass) at around #350 shipped. I'd love to see this stuff at $250/K again.

I don't see prices going down much. Recession or not, the dollar blows. I don't know what market basket the govt uses but everything I buy costs more. Gas, milk, eggs, cat food, ammo, lunch at work, I can name many many things up 25% in the last 4-6 months.

I'm on the fence for this stuff. I just got 1k of Prvi from AIM but I love the Federal XM193. Does anyone know if Natchez ammo needs a signature or not when it is delivered? I'm in if I don't have to be there to sign for it.

If you want cheap blasting ammo that isn't steel cased, Miwall reloads are the way to go. However I think they are raising their prices, it was 129.95 per 500 last I bought 1k of em.

PMC ammo is good stuff too, it's as good as decent milsurp.

I hope this stuff is real bonafide xm193 good shooting ammo; if it is, I'll be buying another 500 at least.
