I thought Ethiopia was the worlds largest producer of flies not ammo ...

If it was $100 I would have bought two and not batted an eye. As it is, I am still on the fence (probably itíll sell out before I figure out if I will buy any).
I already have a bunch of 165gr soft point PPU in the stash. It does not come with clips, which changes the equation. If you subtract $1 per clip it is $95.50 or 0.4975/rd.

I didnt even think about corrosive primers, was that still a thing in the 70s/80s? I have only dealt with 50s 8mm corrosive ammo, no way would I use that in anything with a gas system.

With .30-06, no idea. I think no, but I donít know. Commies only made milspec corrosive 7.62x25 including up through the 80s. So it could be, but probably not. SGA says they tested some and it was non-corrosive. Though if it is really a mixed bag, no guarantees some couldnít be.
