You got screwed.  You can get 1,000 rounds of new production M193 for way less.  You're paying $200 for 800 rounds of 20 year old surplus.

Sorry, 555R, Velocity is correct!  Live and learn!

You should have absolutely no trouble finding great ammo for less than $0.20 per round.  Ammoman has that delivered.  Other places are even cheaper, although Eric's service can't be beat!

800 rds. for $200 is the same as 80 rds. for $20.

You know, division?

He probably used 800 in order to compare it to a case price which should be between $150-200 for 1000 rds. of M193.

At least you didn't waste too much money.  [:)]

If you want plinking ammo, check out Aimsurplus.com.  They have new production PMP ammo for a great price!  As I said before, there are better deals on M193 out there as well.  Don't worry, when I first got started, I paid too much for ammo as well!
