Finally got some stuff!

I headed out the the somewhat local gun shop today! They finally got some primers and powder. So I scored on a 1lb. can of h335, 1000 cci 400 primers and a bag of bulk 500 55gr soft points. I'm not sure what brand these are, but I think these bullets might be Hornady?
I paid:
25$ for powder
40$ for primers
60$ for bullets

Good score. Nice to find something tucked away locally like that!

They are soft points. I think the shop buys in bulk then resells in there own bag

Im not sure those are Hornady bullets. To my recollection they do not have a 223 55g SP. The price point of .12 @ leads me to believe they are most likely a Remington bullet. Either way you were probably fortunate to find them available.

I have some Hornady 55 gr sp bullets (#2266), very similar but OP's score could be Midway's no-name bullets. Not sure they have a cannelure bullet, tho.

I have Hornady SP 55gr with cannelure that look just like the ones in the picture.

I bought 700 of them in bulk packaging from Grafs.com at a cost of $65 before the craze, those were the days... They shoot great too.

FWIW Hornady also has a 55 gr SP without cannelure, part number is #2265.

I stand corrected, and if they are Hornady, that is a very good price you got for a 500 pack, go get more!

You may actually be correct, j357, my old box has a price tag of $5.95. Could very well be 20 yrs old, or older. Bullets in OP's pic show to have a bit more streamlined ogive but Hornady has been known to refine his designs over the years.

They had 1 bag left, after I left! I asked for two pounds of powder, but they have a store limit of 1K primers and 1 canister of powder. I was not fortunate enough for them to have an 8 lb'er. the thought crossed my mind of going back Monday morning and buying another one of each if they have any left. I wish I could get my SGK 65 gr bullets but can't get those anywhere! For now, I'll take what I can get.
