“Read the rest of the posts”
But somehow you missed the multiples posts that said “API” “tracer” “$4 per round” and still decided to share a link about PPU commercial ammo pricing and say “what difference does it make, it’s just for targets”?

Online before the internet? Good for you.

Where in that link does it show the current price of API?

I see sold out AP and ball but no API.

Default yep

Note - I am not the moderator Big_Red.
That is quite a memory. I lucked into the 2 sealed cans of API, opened one and was able to sell 18 en blocs worth of USGU API.

Also sent Ray Maketa 2 rounds for his research, investigation and detailed analysis of the internals. He confirmed it was exactly like it should have been.

Substantially less, like 50%, if foreign made, or loose misc. US made rounds
About 10 years ago a forum member opened a 1951 sealed spam can of .30 Cal. clipped FA API
He sold some of the clips back then for, IIRC, around $50 for 8 rounds with the clip.
The API The CMP sold, if memory serves, was loose rounds of FN.
I don't think the FN API was a tracer round, but it would "Flash" when it hit something!

Yes you were the man with the sealed FA API cans! I still have my clip of silver tipped Frankford Arsenal rounds in my USGI ammo display. Thanks again, this ammo is quite rare to find today.
Personally I have no interest in foreign made ammo of any kind
