I'm looking at buying a 1,000-rd case (50 boxes of 20 rounds) of Federal HST 9mm ammo (either 124gr +P or 147gr +P), and I'm looking for one or two people to share it with. I'll keep 400 rds, so the other 600 rds would be up for grabs.

  • The 124gr +P (P9HST3) is available from Bone From Gun Club for $370 shipped, which works out to $18.50/box.
  • The 147gr +P (P9HST4) is available from Target Sports USA for $400 shipped, which works out to $20/box.

If you're interested in buying all or part of the remaining 600 rds at the cost listed above, please respond by indicating which bullet weight you'd prefer (124gr or 147gr) and how many boxes you would like. Preference will be given to those who take more (I'd like to avoid splitting this 10 different ways).

I will buy the case up front and then collect payment upon delivery. I am not interested in shipping this, so please be willing to pick up from me in the North Seattle area, or find someone to mule it to you.

If you decide, for whatever reason, to switch to 147gr standard pressure, I'd be in for 600 rounds.

I'll pick up 300rds of either the 124gr or the 147gr. Your call although I'd prefer the 147gr.

I'll take the other 300 rounds, preferably 124gr but 147 is fine. Just a quick check on the numbers - math checks out for 20 boxes of 50 rounds, correct?

You're right, I got the numbers backwards. A case is 20 boxes x 50 rds/box.

Sounds like it's all spoken for -thanks guys! My preference is the 147gr, so that's what I ordered. I'll let you know when it arrives.

You know what sucks is MassAmmo.com actually has a better price on full cases of 147gr +P than Target Sports USA (and so did Bone Frog Gun Club), except both have been out of stock for a while, so I ordered from Target Sports USA. Sure enough, 2 days later, MassAmmo is back in stock at $22 less than what I just ordered. :frust:

Oh well, $20/box is still a good deal.

I don't have any of either anymore. Well, besides the 400 rds of 147gr +P I kept. :bigsmile:

Sounds like you have enough interest to check around for a good price for a larger purchase, say 5-10,000 rounds mike get you a good price.
