seen these at my LGS last weekend for 10 bucks a box (20). I'm glad to see stuff on the shelves again, but unfortunately I only took enough greenbacks with me to get what I went for.

The 55gr is always a little cheaper and even with the ammo crises slowly getting less bad I paid 415 shipped for 1000 rds of 5.56mm brass cased.. ( not meaning to thread hi-jack)
