Allaroundhunter I dont have a problem with someone paying what they want to pay for ammunition. I never have and never will pay those kind of prices and I have 1000's of rounds of 223/5.56. It might be the norm in south texas but its not here in bama.
I personally will not ever do business with any company big box or other that charges outrageous prices. I understand they are in it to make money but some of these places charge very inflated prices that Im not ever going to pay. Its ridiculous. Besides there are plenty of places that charge fair prices and dont try and send their kids to college on one ammo sale.
Im a cheap bastard anyway, thats why I reload.
