    It's definitely expensive, but it is available. Supply and demand in effect.

    Yes...it isn’t cheap. I think he’s about on par with basic Underwood ammo prices. What I find very interesting with GHA is his transparency. Lots of IG posts on ammo being manufactured, and he always comments on component availability, cost, etc. I find it educational.

    But definitely spendy. I have not personally bought any yet...haven’t needed to...but if I didn’t have any, I’d probably suck it up and buy some just to have.

    YMMV

    What was typical pricing for .308 Win before the current panic buying? Currently seems to go around $2.00 a round if you can even find it now.

    About 65 or 75 cents per rd for federal XM80 was normal.

    2.00 per rd is what federal gold medal match 175gr used to cost before the panic.

    I'd buy around $0.60 a round. But I've been reloading all my own lately.

    Have you ever looked into swaging bullets?

    Jacketed bullets?

    I have, but the upfront cost of the dies have kept me from doing it. I'd like to do it for .22 and .30 cal.

    No, just lead slugs. I guess jacketed would be nice too, but you need a pretty hefty press for that from what I understand.

    Depends on what it was and who you were buying from.....I got some a while back for about .50 cents per round. That is not the case now. All of the surplus battle packs have pretty much dried up.
