2 months ago I bought 1k rounds of 45 acp. Cost $400 plus $30 shipping/handling. At the time it was a very good deal.
It is paradise, here it is around $1000 for that amount of 45acp (and here average monthly salary, if you are lucky to have any job is around $400) not to mention that it is impossible to buy that amount of ammo legally.
But yea, “luckily” there is illegal market here.
