Dang it, you guys are spookin me so I ended up buying 10 boxes of SS195LF instead of 6 that I planned on picking up.
Is $25 a box a decent price?

For 195, yes. It has been higher priced than 197 for years (from what I've seen). But then they are charging over $28/box here regardless of type. Which reminds me - time for more reloading...

Contrary to popular belief, you CAN fix stupid - it's just illegal.

I don't care, really...

last time everyone freaked out, they're going to do the same thing, again. Just talked to someone tonight who went and bought about 10,000 rounds of 5.56 in the election scare from Obama (the last election).

I'm just not going to shoot anything till people stop wetting their pants. Going to stink having to wait half a year to start shooting more again. Oh well. If I can find it I will, if I can't; I can't.

No point freakin out.
Never attribute to malice that which can be explained by stupidity.
The shooter will always matter more than the gear ever will.
Stop relying on others to do the work for you.
Shoot more, worry less.

This is where a .22lr comes in - I shot 1000 (yes, one THOUSAND) rounds through my new 10/22 Takedown and it cost me roughly what 2 boxes of ss197 would have run.

No need to skip shooting - just change calibers for a while...

I just bought my Five Seven today and I'm new to the forum. I guess I'm looking to buy about 2000 rounds of the ss195fl to get me started. Does anyone know of a place that sells a case for under $900 that actually has them in stock?

I'm pretty new to the gun scene and not really sure how dealers work on their ammo prices. Will places like CheaperThanDirt give you a discount for buying a case when they only list a box price on the site?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

Absolutley the way to go. I still shoot my 57 just to remind myself of "feel"--say 50 rounds max and spend rest of time using my 22. I cannot see shooting up a storm watching dollar bills go up in flames at the front of my 57.
