It is free shipping, it is still 14 dollars cheaper... and I would not call this reloaded, more like remanufactured..

I don't know about anyone else, but I certainly wouldn't buy reloaded ammunition. any jackwagon in a trailer park with a reloading press can turn out ammunition, doesn't mean he know what he's doing

At the local gun show a vendor sells reloaded 5.56 and has a sign that says they are not responsible for damage or injuries due to there loading mistakes, some one needs to tell them bull crap if they reload it and sell it and screw up your rifle they are responsible.

I was getting handloads from a fellow gun club member. 30-06, new lc brass. 150 grn bullet on varget powd . Price 20/100 rds. He said he liked using once fired brass in his guns. Ghe price was right, and tge ammo more accurate than my shaking would allow. :)
This was 2000-2002.
I knew it probably cost him more than what i was paying him.
I think he was just helping me out.

You can buy new M2 30-06 made by PPU for $299 and shipping per 500 rounds. Suitable for use in an M1 Garand. Why would one buy commercial reloaded ammo when you can get new for the same or better price? PPU is known as being good ammo too.

I have 1500 rounds of Prvi and it is better than most surplus.
