    $300 for 776 rnds 55gr .223 soft tip quality reloads in mostly LC brass. Too much? Good price?

    Who's reloads? Why not invest in your own reloading setup? Assuming its not reloaded by bubba the gun show jerky salesman its an ok price.

    Dallas Reloading Service stuff? I've had OK experiences with their stuff. Get an occasional flyer with their reloads, but those could be operator error. Those guys must have a decent investment in a brass tumbler since their brass always looks shinier and newer than actual production ammo.

    I ahve tons of reloading shit, I just dont care to do it nor have the time.

    I dont know whose reloads, but I've shot 250rnds from it without any hitches. Looks like Dallas reloadings labels.

    Im just looking to get rid of it or trade it off for FMJ and didnt know what to ask for it. It just kind of takes up space.

    My last couple of ammo cans came from Dallas Reloading. Been really good stuff.

    Where are you at David? I'm in North Dallas/Plano area and have about 500 rds of .223 FMJ from Dallas Reloading. Problem is most of the ranges around here don't allow FMJ and want soft tip or HP, so I only get to shoot this on private land.

    It's around $400 for a case of 1000 out here.
    Federal/Remington no Wolf junk.

    I remember seeing something about this site before but couldn't remember if it was good or bad. I ran into a guy last night at the bar who said he gets all his ammo from http://www.ammoman.com/index.htm and said he's got 10,000 rounds and enough food for a year stockpiled for shit hitting the fan if/when the libs take over... :noes:

    too much IMHO. I've seen new 55gr 223 for $340 shipped per 1000.

    it it were me, I would much rather pay slightly more, get a full case, and have it be new :dunno:

    I figure I'll stick the $300 tag on it and see what happens. If it sells awesome, if not I'll find a way to burn that shit up through something.

    I believe his point was even the republicans (who seem to have a chance of winning) want to take the guns away too. :wtc:
