4 Cases will be headed my way in a week or two. $165 or so per 1080 rounds, in battle packs. Must come 3 packs to a case. Called today and placed my order, and if I like it I will order another 4. I'm not going to wait on this 55 grain stuff because I can't even find it [55 grain] except in .223 spec. Unless AIM has a crapload of it coming in I'd bet it'll be gone quickly.

Not the greatest price, but not too bad, shipping for me works out to $12 per case which I would have to pay in tax if I bought it here. Taking a chance on ordering 4 cases, but win some, lose some and I'll take the chance.

AIM Surplus. Not on the site as of last night tho. Checked the entire site out. I'll bet there is a hell of a run on it tho when it does show up on it.

I've shot a bit over 1K of the 99 stuff. I've had no problems but a FEW popped primers. I have ran it in Colts ONLY tho. Others have had more popped primers then me with that year. [99] I don't know if they are shooting it in a .223 chamber but I suspect SOME are. All of mine has been very very clean and I have found nothing I would not shoot. Found a few dings but they were TINY, about the size of 1/2 a BB. Very shallow also. Other stuff [years] was not as good tho. More defects with the 04? stuff or so it seems] AIM will treat you right tho. I don't have one thing to say bad about how I have ever been treated or conversed with on the phone. Shipping has always been very good also.

That would be $184.95 per 1080 rounds.

Shipped, my order came to $775.00, [48 shipping] so yep about $181 or so per 1080 rounds. If it's good stuff tho, it's still a hell of a lot cheaper then the 6 bucks a box of 20 that everyone around here charges for even S&B. Say 3.70 per box of 20.

You trying to start a frenzy?
Link Posted: 2/21/2006 3:22:12 PM EDT
No, figured it out per round. 17 cents before, and 17.9 after shipping. So figure $3.70 per box.
I'd rather some of the gents here get some IF they want, then hear them gripe after it's gone.
