The prices I am seeing for 1,000 69 gr SMK's is in the 180 to 200 dollar range. :surprise:

Is there some place cheaper?

Is there a cheaper alternative to the 69 gr SMK's?

I wish Montana Gold made a cheap but heavier bullet for the .223. And just a .308 bullet that was inexpensive too.

Ask them when they are running out. Ask them when there is no heat in their homes, and they're cold. Ask them when their engines stop. Ask them when people who have never known hunger start going hungry. You want to know something. They won't want us to ask them. They'll just want us to get it for them."

I get mine from the local Gander Mountains when there on sale. Then you throw down the rewards coupons they send you for useing the Gander Card. They also will met or bet a cheaper advertized prices. Sometimes the local gunshop gets them cheaper but not lately.

My two rifle bullet suppliers are OK Weber and Creedmoor Sports.

Both are listing MK 69s at $83 for 500.

69 grain Noslers work fine for me and they are cheaper......But then again nothing is really cheap anymore....
