Default question on price of ammo

i recently decided to try some different ammo for my 7mm rem mag. after 10 years of shooting nothing but remington 150 gr coreloks i decided to try winchester silver tips.
i was in galyons-eerrr dicks yesterday nad started looking. i orig picked up 160 grain bullets thinking that this was the right choice. price $34.99 box. then i found some 150 grain silvertips. price $24.99. whats up with that? does the production cost of 150 grain that much cheaper than 160's? does anybody know?

o2bebowhunting,
The only 160 GR 7mm mag cartridges I know of are the accubond cx's, the 150's are ballistic silvertips. If what you had were the Accu-bonds, I think the MSRP is around 41.00 per box. They are expensive. Not that the silvertips are cheap.

Wow. That's expensive ammo. Does it come with a freezer full of meat? Last time I bought 7mm ammo I ordered a box of 175 gr. corelocks (Remington ammo) and they shipped me a case. This was about 20 years ago, I believe the price was around $12 a box. I've shot less than a box of it and have a LOT of it left. Luckily, it shoots MOA in my Sako mannlicher style rifle.

Accubonds are bonded, and supposely won't fragment, and silvertips are not. Yea, they are better for faster rounds over 3000fps.

I don't buy much ammo as I have reloaded since the early 60's. However when I do I usually buy Federal with Premium bullets such as the Partitions and Gamekings. Ammo prices very a lot. Remington Corlokts are about the cheapest where I live. I get them at Walmart for 9.00 - 12.00 a box as a rule.

I'm sorry, but I'm going to bash Dick's again. We had one that opened in my home town a couple of months ago and I did some comparison pricing of some items I had recently bought. They were 20-30% higher in price and their customer service was nonexistant. Try a Wal Mart or Academy if you have one in town.
