Ammo Pricing

Apropos of nothing, I priced out the cost of a 1000 rounds of .223 or 5.56 mm, if you will, 55 grain FMJ shipped to my door:
Aim Surplus $249.07
Ammoman $259.00
Cabela's $292.64 - With a very convoluted gimmick that gives you $20 off - hardly worth it.
Cheaper Than Dirt $262.67 - Out of stock.
Able Ammo $332.50
A1 Ammo $370.61, out of stock on nearly everything in .223.
Midway USA $322
J&G Sales $323.94 $450 +
Apparently it pays to shop around. I have ordered from in the past and I like them because the price you see is the price you pay including shipping. Natchez is pretty straight forward as well. I hate to say this, but Cabelas seems to disappoint at every opportunity. They used to be so good, but now not so much.
