    That's a very good price.

    But just to restate one of the rules of buying ammunition:
    Rule 3 - NEVER buy bulk ammunition before you have tested a sample of it in your guns.

    In my experience, the Remington/UMC is loaded on the cool side and reliably produces stoppages in couple of my guns. A friend of mine found this out the hard way in the middle of a practical shooting competition.

    The stuff works fine in most guns - but definitely not in all.

    Also, while I'm here Winchester white box (generally 100rds or 200rds found at Walmart, etc) 9mm is also loaded on the cool side.

    Like shoes - try before you buy.

    I've seen boxes of 50 round boxes for $11 all fall on shelves everywhere.

    May want to look around before ordering it with shipping.

    It gets even cheaper than that though,I bought a couple boxes of 50 rounds of blazer brass 124 grain for $10 per box at Bi-mart a couple months ago.

    Didn't know about the Remington being a cool load. It is noticeably more accurate in my guns than other rounds like Blazer, no stoppages, that's why I posted the deal here. I just get tired of spending time driving around looking for ammo and not finding it in stock. It's gotten a lot better but I've never found it cheaper in stores than a good deal online.

    On February 14-20, Dick's Sporting Goods came out with an ad for Remington UMC 9mm 50-pack for $10.98. They had a similar sale at the end of December.

    Oh yea, Dick's the same place that stopped selling scary black guns after Sandy Hook. No thanks.
