    Sale in today's Sunday circular:

    Remington UMC 230 gr FMJ = $17.98/50

    I picked up 1000 by stopping in two stores. The first one had no 50 rd boxes so they sold me two of the 250 bulk packs at the same price per 50 ($90 instead of the normal $120). A second store sold me 10 boxes, so none of the silly limits like WM. $359.60/1000...not bad for American made w/brass.

    Yes, it's a little cheaper. In fact, while making the rounds, I stopped at two WMs and scored a total of 2 100 rd VPs. That's the problem with WM. Even when you find it, they don't let you buy enough to be worth it.

    I wouldn't buy a single thing from, and would tell them why. That's ridiculous.

    I've had that conversation with the department manager. His response was that they should be able to charge based on demand since everywhere else is out of stock. I pointed out that his shelves were over-flowing with product and that he has a 0% margin on crap he can't sell. He doesn't get it.

    Yeah... he's always got ammunition. It sits there for months. There's dust on it. He's a moron.

    ...but not your 9mm business, which is a shame, because I would be happy to buy there.

    I wish I could. I dont have room to set up a press. I would have to put a bench up in the living room and even there it would need to be in the middle of the room. I considered making a bench in the garage but it is too small to put anything in it with he car.
