You long timers will remember, it doesn't seem that long ago (2009) I ordered my first HXP spam cans, 192 rounds/clipped/bandos for $60 ea with $9.95 shipping. Yes I still have cans bought at that price, spam cans are good saving for the future and I doubt any country will ever be producing .30 spam cans again.
The good ole CMP days!

The days of cheap abundant ammo!I still have some piled back from the good ole days

Cheap surplus ammo is one reasons why I bought my first M1 26 years ago. There was so much cheap ammo then I never thought to buy a ton of it.

Crates are long gone. They'll ship in boxes.

Crates were nice a while ago.

Would be nice if these 240s spam cans come in crates. We will see.

I bit on the fear it would all disappear. Ordered 2 and contemplating a third. If this is truly the end of HXP at the CMP I wonder what the prices will look like for HXP in the future.

I can't imagine the CMP will not have an alternative after this fire sale. I realize they have commercial sources but anyone think the CMP has the proverbial "rabbit in the hat" for some other GI source of M2 ammo?

Not to be smug, but I'm glad I took Orest's advice years ago and stocked up. What I bought then is easily worth more than double (some of it triple) at these latest prices. Between that and reloading I'm set for life. It's a good feeling.
