    I remember a post stating load SHTF mags with a few tracer rounds 1st so you know when you're about to run out.

    I have one box here but don't recall the cost. How much were these tracer rounds pre Newtown scare?

    Anyone in the Houston/Huntsville/I-45 corridor selling?

    Gracias

    I think I bought some for like $7/20 right before 5.56 went extinct. Careful witht hat ammo- it starts fires like crazy. It also has a tendency not to light up until around the 50-100 meter mark (by design).

    Clarke: not going to abandon standard ammo.

    Southpaw: OLD prices! I refuse to pay current unless it's Academy's, Walmart's or similar.

    London: Thanks. I think I paid $10 or $12 for the box I have but that was an impulse/giggles buy. And, I thought I had heard some thing about the 50-100m light up. :(
