The last cans I bought from the CMP was several years ago for $115, which included shipping, I think that's when they sold out of em for good
Crazy that these cans are selling for over $500 now!

Personaly I don't believe the CMP sold 100 million rds of HXP since the Greek returns I'm willing to bet they have more stashed away!
