I learned something valuable, so listen up. But first, look again at the price and quantity of these ammo boxes.
It’s not an optical illusion or Photoshopped. I purchased this premium LE self-defense ammo on sale this week for $0.75/round. This stuff usually sells for $1.00/round or more during normal times, but I manged to find it on sale at a local gun shop.
Obviously, I asked the same question that you are probably asking right now; “How could this ammo be on sale during these crazy times?” Well, the store employee informed me that Vista Outdoor (parent company of Federal, Speer, and others) manufacturers a dedicated run of ammo for federal/state/local law enforcement agencies. Any surplus ammo that isn’t sold is redirected to the retail civilian market at a discounted price. This happens once per year…which is now.
It all makes perfect sense now. I have seen this ammo (and Speer Gold Dot LE) recently at several major online retailers…at reasonable prices.
Take advantage of the current deals or take notes for next year.
