    That's pretty spendy. That's about .69 a round

    Can get 1,000 quality reloads for more than a 100.00 less. About .37-.38 a round

    I agree, but these are not reloads, you could order 24 boxes of 30 rounds each Samson ammunition (Israel) from Brownell and with shipping it would be around $327 so it isn't a bargain, what it (The Walmart Ammo) does have though are three sealed Battle packs ina metal ammo can that does lend itself to long term storage along with portability. Still too high, but available.

    I just thought about it and ordered 30 boxes from Brownell, works out to .46 a round. I am in the process of building a AR-15 of my own. The Warden has a nice one, but she seems to think it's HERS, and for me to keep my mitts off. I do have a AR-10, but .308 is really a lot more spendy, so I am making a far cheaper build, about $200 for the lower and I am getting a full upper from Armalite. (It was in Portland two days ago, but is now rattling around McAllen, Texas. Thanks for giving it the scenic tour UPS)
    I do have ammo for the Warden, but did I mention she was possessive! Anyway at the rate I shoot, that should last a good while.
