HST has become silly expensive
« on: August 11, 2019, 09:07:16 PM »
Last time I bought Federal HST's, it was $399 at Target Sports.  The price seems to have gone through the roof.  Any idea why?

From what I just read, this is Federal's policy.  Evidently, they only sell at the lower rate to LE.  Guess they don't want to sell ammo in volume.

Seems like I read that somewhere recently, about them putting restrictions on retailer's selling 50 round LEO boxes to non LEO buyers, I guess they only want us to have 20 rnd boxes at $1.00 per round. Maybe that ties in somehow.

I say that, but did just buy 200 rounds of 45acp HST in 50 round boxes from target sports for $25.00 per box of 50.

So I don't know.

I can do $.50 per round HST but I'll switch to something else before I pay more than $.50.

See my charity thread for a deal on Gold Dots.
