Slickguns, one of the forum sponsors, has 30 carbine, 5 dollars a box of fifty. I figgered that was a typo, but followed the links, anyway. Herters ammo, sold by Cabelas. So I have clicked in 20 boxes as the amount. 1000 rounds of 30 carbine for just under a hundred bucks. My God, that is so cheap it is unbelievable. First 30 carbine I ever bought, in the late 80s, was 6 bucks a box. Five dollars a box??? Wow. Then, just before I order, I look at the picture again. Wait a minute, that looks like steel case. Read the blurb. >Loaded by Russia’s premier ammunition maker to precise C.I.P. standards, all Herter’s ammunition is noncorrosive and has smooth-cycling, polymer-coated steel cases. 110-grain FMJ bullets. 50 rounds per box. Imported. < Huh. How 'bout that. Wolf. So I backed out of the page. A dime a round. You can't buy bullets for a dime a round, let alone loaded ammo. Buuuuut. So, I guess I'm an ammo snob. I shoot steel cases in my com-blok guns, but I won't shoot it in my American ones. Same was as I won't shoot aluminum in anything. But for people that ain't a picky as me, that's one smokin' good deal.
