Last Available 192 Rnd Clipped HXP
 
I was just checking the ammo sale page, and stopped on this:


ITEM #DESCRIPTIONPRICE4C3006X215-192PM2 Ball Greek HXP (Pyrkal) manufacture,
Packaged in 8 rd enbloc clips, 6 clips per bandoleer, 4 bandoleers per can.
Total 192 rds in a .30 cal can.
Boxer primed, non-corrosive. Headstamp varies HXP62-HXP80. Weight is 15 lbs per can. THIS AMMO ATTRACTS A MAGNET.

SOLD OUT - 12-22-2011
$125.00
S&H $11.95 per can
S&H to Alaska or Hawaii $16.95 per can


That sounded like more than what they were charging for it back then, so I went to my overflowing - CMP Order folder, and pulled my last invoice for two cans of it, on 09/10/11. Sure enough, I paid 96.00 per can and 8.95 shipping ea can, which is what I thought I remembered it selling for. They were already selling the loose cans, same as today, 200 rnds for $98. And I couldn't believe guys were posting that they'd much rather buy the loose, dirty mixed ammo without clips, cause for $2 more, they got 8 extra grimey rounds.:D I don't think durring the three months from my last order, till it eventually sold out, in December, they increased the price to that level? I wonder if they're now putting a new higher price on the sales page, for the clipped ammo, to get us use to paying, as Orest said, for the value of the clips, when the last cans go up for sales. Anyone thoughts on this, or can anyone confirm that at the tail end in December, 2011, the price had been raised to $125 per can?

i have spam cans i bought at 48.95 a can,, People basically begged Orest TO RAISE THE PRICE, TO MAKE IT LAST LONGER AND TO THWART THE EVIL MASS BUYER AND RESELLER, gotta hand it to Orest he listens to the customers charges more and gets praised for it,, heck i hope the clipped goes to 200$ a acan it will sell and the cries of not fair would be fun to hear

How does that go?

Be careful what you wish for - you might get it.

Yes, sold out. I'm just trying to confirm the last selling price the CMP had on it. What they have on the current sales page isn't what I remember.

yes sold out for now, once the loose is sold out they will dump the remaining spam cans they have

Craftsman...i think you're on to something. I noticed this as well and don't think the $125 was the price prior to it selling out. I think they are planning on charging that when it comes back in to account for the enblocs.

DP85, got me digging in my files.

Found an Oct '05 receipt for a 480 round case of HXP in Garand Clips--Item 415C. Went for $110 plus $19 shipping, for $129 for two spam cans of HXP62, in bandos and USGI clips. Figuring 50 cents a clip, the 480 rounds went for $99 delivered, or under 21 cents a round. These were "tall" spam cans, with 5 bandos per can. One of the earliest options on HXP to sell out, IIRC. This was also the time when everybody turned their nose down at the "dirty Greek" ammo, preferring the Talon-delinked LC Ball M2.

I suppose if it came on sale at that price again I would buy some more, but to be honest I bought all I needed back then when the prices were good. More for you guys now.
