That'd be about .42+ per round after sales tax. That's an OK price for small quantities if someone only needs a few rounds and doesn't shoot 8mm much. Actually I can reload 8mm for about .40 per round. My hand loads are non-corrosive which is a plus. But there are still some decent prices on good surplus ammo that pop up for 25 to 30 cents per round. I feed several Mausers so I try to keep my eyes open for those deals - like this one (maybe):

But I'm stocked up and don't really need more at the moment - but maybe. And hopefully it's not the stuff Garand1957 had bad experiences with:

maybe bad batch, the 50's yugo has an excellent reputation, not as good as the 70s no doubt, but you cant find the 70s stuff anymore, all the stuff you see on the market is 50's.

of course at todays prices its laso not the bargain it once was at $50 a case.

There have been posts about ruptured/split cases on the '50's Yugo 8mm ammo for nearly 10 years over at gunboards.com.
These were mine but I have seen quite a few others.
1955 seems to be the problem year.
I would pay $250 for a case of the 1970's stuff even though I still have 3 left
