.357 sig range ammo online!

Found .357 sig frangible Remington range ammo at Ammoman, $450.00 per 1000, seems petty good price these days and it's in stock.

Who makes this ammo? I've never shot frangible but at $22.50/per 50 rounds it seems reasonable for the current ammo drought.

It's Remington "disintegrator" range ammo. I've used several variations of the frangible stuff and am very pleased.

The first link is WAY overpriced for factory 2nds (rejects), i.e., pushing $40 a box.

The 2nd link....so soon has everyone forgot they are trying to price "gouge". See their 9mm HST prices.

Screw 'em.

I wonder just how someone could sell factory seconds on something like ammunition? What next, factory seconds on prescription drugs?

The cheapest I've ever seen the Remington 125-grain .357sig Golden Saber Bonded was $32+/box of 50 and that was several years ago. If I was desperate for JHP self-defense ammo I'd buy some at $39/box of 50. Maybe this is a sign that supply is going to start becoming available again.

I have 3000 of the rem .357sig frangible bullets that I got a very good deal on a while back. The bullet profile is not ideal for .357sig even though they say they are for .357sig. Thus they are succeptable to setback, however for range use they are fine. Remington only really makes one bullet suitable for the .357sig and that is in their golden sabre bonded round.

Bought some towards the end of last year at $31.95 per 50.

Ammotogo had upped their price LONG before the Sandy Hook deal. GSB, HST was $40 per 50 for quite some time now.

The .357sig is a round that should be reloaded because it right at the cost of reloading 9mm.

I wonder what this ammo would do on the steel angle iron back stops at some indoor ranges? Fall apart?

Lead free? I wonder what they use for the bullet composition?
