I'm starting to think you're right about this. The only things holding me up have been not knowing how good/bad Centurion was, and 'thinking' I could save money by just driving over to Wallymart to self-serv.
The shipping on 500 of .22 rnds from Palmetto is $5
No 5K .22 available
Shipping on 5K of .22 Centurion from Palmetto = ?
Shipping on 1K of .223 from Palmetto is ~ $15 for comparison.
.22 Federal from Wallymart, if available each time I went there
, would be 2.7 cents/rnd - plus diesel and time
So if you figure about $15 shipping on 5K from Palmetto, it comes to ~ 4.2 cents/rnd
.22 Winchester Xpert from Copes is ~ 6.6 cents/rnd
5.45 Combloc surplus from Copes is ~ 15 cents/rnd
5.45 Silver Bear from Palmetto ~ 25.6 cents/rnd
.223 PMC from Palmetto is ~ 38 cents/rnd
When you figure how much diesel fuel costs me, plus my time going to Wallymart several times per week just to come home empty handed since march, I think I could have been shooting .223 all this time. Having just picked up the 5.45 recently I plan on getting a few wood cases of Copes Combloc surplus stuff plus the Palmetto .22 cal Centurion and just squirrel away what little .223 and 5.56 I have left.
