Our Black Hills ammo order from November 2006 is finally shipping. Black Hills 55Gn blue box for $229.50/1000 delivered. I'm getting 4K. Price seemed high at the time. But now its a bargain.

It was a group buy from last year. Won't happen again for a long time, if ever.

Only 4K belongs to me. The rest is going to some other members here.

It of course is a great deal now but I bet it seemed kind of crazy at the time.
Got to give BH big bonus points for holding the agreed price on a backorder. This is something to keep in mind with future orders.

Nice. I remember feeling good about a back order "deal" of 7.62x39. The huge shortage awhile back drove prices up to what they are currently but I needed some so I picked up a case for $160 and then 2 days later my backorder shipped and I got 2 more cases for $100 each.

Congratulations!!!!!!

That's really cool! Now the question is, do you shoot similar ammo that you've recently purchased at higher prices and save your good deal or vice versa?

Link Posted: 11/5/2007 7:32:38 PM EDT
If you have any leftover I'll take a case or two. Fat chance, but you don't ask you don't get.

This is the most i have ever paid for ammo.

The last ammo i bought was Rem UMC for $173/1000 delivered.

Horn steel case 75Gn OTM for $115/500 delivered

Wolf 55Gn JHP for $179/1440 delivered.

Before that i was buying 2700rnd tubs of SA M1A3 for .13 cents a round delivered.

I buy ammo when i find it cheap so i dont have to pay the insane $400/1000 delivered prices.

I paid, more than i wanted to, for the Black hills because I have less than 5,000 rounds of SA M1A3 left.

God Bless You!

It's amazing how perceptions change with time. I remember thinking Ammoman's $199 delivered for 1K of XM193 was outrageous. If you looked you could obviously find it cheaper but I failed to buy even when found at lower prices. I just sat there thinking, "Maybe next week...month....year." I snoozed, I losed.

Congrats again,
Scott

You just won't share, will you?

Those SA tubs from SG were a great deal. Come to think of it, so were the cases of Port 7.62x51 for $129.
