Local shop has S&B 7.62x39 for the price of 6 bucks per 20 or 209+tax per 800. and S&B .223 for $249.99 per K. What are some places thinking? I REALLY try to give some biz to my local shop and when they had XM193 for 109 per 500 I bought several boxes. [not all that great but about par around here.] For that price tho they can keep it. Do the Math and the 7.62 is 300 bucks per K.
This does NOT include 6% tax. And one wonders why no one buys ammo at the gun shop?

The dumb thing is they have been asked by numerous people, myself included, to stock bulk .223 and 7.62. They carry loads of ammo and shotshells. Some in calibers that they cannot sell more then 1 or 2 boxes a year. [307 winchester] SOME bulk brings in people who will almost always look at the guns when they come in. They sell bulk pretty quick when they do [did]have it at reasonable prices. Like I said, I even bought there. I have bought bulk .45 on sale there in the past also. There is a market, but not at prices like that. Besides, everyone that walks in the door is a potential customer, me included. I have bought plenty of guns there, and would buy ammo there also if it was priced where he can make a fair profit and I don't feel like I am getting screwed. [I spent 9 to 10 k there in the past 12 months. Would YOU as a shop owner listen to a customer who spent that much with you?
