    Has anyone considered a group buy on ammo? $35,000 for 100,000 rnds of M193? That's 100 people spending $350 for 1K ammo.
    Details were below. Does anyone know anything about this website/deal?

    I don't have $35,000 to spend on ammo (i wish).

    Says Lake City brass, doesn't say made BY Lake City.
    I'm suspicious.

    $0.35/round doesn't seem all that low to me. That's the price I got it at Bi-Mart for last week, and I don't have to buy 1k at a time.

    I love Bi-Mart. :)

    Hmmm, ok so maybe not so good a deal?

    What was on sale at Bi-mart for $0.35/rnd? Rem UMC or American Eagle?

    Doesn't sound all that bad. Try to find ammo just about anywhere right now. Every online ammo store I know of says "out of stock".

    Wouldn't touch it with a barge pole. The affiliated company is under investigation for defrauding the Pentagon. Would you trust them to follow through on a pallet of 100,000 rounds .223 dumped on your driveway if they weren't in fact LC surplus?

    I already researched this - I was going to split it 50/50 with my business partner and sell it off for profit then ran into the articles all over the internet.
