Anyone know what happened to the SS198? Seems like it all disappeared, now SS195 is everywhere. :ponder:

Plenty of 198 on gunbroker but personally, I'd rather have the 195 for pull down & reloading or the 197 for plinking.

I really like midwest, and I really like ss195 for competition shooting.

But .50 a round :(

I think that's for the SS197, the AE is cheaper.

I recently bought AE TMJ rounds from palmetto state armory. I was not happy that it took two and a half weeks to deliver, which I didnt understand because they were in stock, but since they were a pretty good price 17.99 per box I just loaded up and waited patiently.
Good price/terrible process.

Until recently, the last time I bought ammo for the 5.7 was when only FN brand ammo was available. Had been living off FN brand ammo and reloads for years, because 5.7 ammo had always been sold out or was for sale for $35+ a box by some arse selling it at a high price because "it was going to get banned soon".

$20.36 is the best I have seen so far for the V-Max.

I actually have 20 boxes coming in from them today. Prompt shipping and tracking number. The shipping was a bit high I thought. Will post more when the package arrives.

My thoughts on them so far. Fast and prompt shipping. Packaging looked good on the outside, but no inner packing other than a cardboard topper. Don't get me wrong. The ammo was packed tightly, but if the package was dropped or took a hit, I would have loose ammo all over. One box was slightly damaged, as the outer box took a small ding. Overall, I'm very satisfied with the company.

$42.55 for shipping for 1k rounds. Others on different forums have posted much less shipping as well and in Missouri. I have emailed the company to see if there was an error in my order. I went and put the same order in today and the total price was $46.00 less. Ammo was the same price.

Just received 500rds of SS198LF from Ammo Supply Warehouse with great service and packaging. $31.00/50rds
They had a note within the package that said they are trying to reach forums by offering incentives of somekind. Now with that said I don't want be in the wrong by posting this or make it sound like I work for them and also not trying to step on Elites' toes. I'm just showing my interest in seeing what could become of this if the forum was offered something.

J&G have earned my business. I worded out a polite inquiry about my high shipping charge and just got this email back.


J and G Sales <info@jgsales.com>


Sir,
I apologize for the inconvenience. It does appear there was a problem with the calculation for the quantity price and we will be issuing you a refund.

Thank you.
