I wanted to get some ARFCOMers' opinions on the following:

Northwest Reloading Supply is selling a case of 1200 rounds of IMI M855 green tip for $340 + $17.93 shipping.

Would anyone be willing to pay such a price for this ammo??? I know Botach use to sell this ammo or $249 with free shipping. But they have been out of stock for what seems to be forever.

I feel like a sucker for even considering buying this stuff at such an outrageous price. What do you guys think.... insane purchase, or suck it up and buy?

There was a great deal in EE for M885 like load .15/round - new manufacture = $150.00

The more I see on M855 the more I dislike it.

IMI M855 is my personal favorite ammunition. I have never had a single with IMI ammunition. Having said that, I would not pay almost $360 for a 1200 round case. I usually wait for Botach to have a sale and stock up. I know guys have had problems with Botch in the past, but they hasve never screwe up one of my ammo purchases. I picked up my last few cases for under $200 shipped. Northwest is jacking the price up way to much.
