Thanks for the heads up.

The case is out of stock. You can still get two boxes of 500 for $88 each ($176/1000) with free shipping.

Look into the Prime Ammo membership there. You can get better ammo for a cheaper cost. Fiocchi 115grFMJ for $165

I've never ordered from them before. Wasn't even aware of the Prime ammo membership. But what does that cost per year? So if your saving $7 a case how does it equal out? For practice I'll shoot anything, bought a case of the NATO Winchester 9mm while back. For IDPA shoots I would prefer soft shooting ammo. The ballistics chart I looked at show the Fiocchi 115 moving along at 1260 fps. That's pretty warm compared to the UMC at 1135 fps.

The cost is $95 per year. Before I found this place I was lucky to find 1000 rounds of Fiocchi for under $200. Most of the time it was in the $215 range. I haven't done any competitions but I found that all my handguns love Fiocchi so I just stay with it. You also need to figure in the fact that there is zero shipping cost with the Prime membership.

As noted by spen48, the membership is $95/yr. The discount is 8% off your orders and free shipping. Target offers free shipping on cases anyway but if you order 200 or 500 rounds the free shipping is a value.
I usually order a case of 9mm target ammo which will run $175-190. The 8% discount is $14 or $15 savings, so I need to place more than 7 orders per year before I start saving money.
Someone buying more expensive ammo will see savings much sooner.

Pretty sure I could justify the cost of the membership. We shoot quite a bit.

Target usa sports has always had free shipping when you buy in bulk. So you need to compare the cost of membership say $95.00, with how many times out of the year you are going to buy bulk to recover that cost. So a box of bulk Fiocchi is presently 179.8. say the membership price is 165.00.00 that is 14.8 less. therefore 95/14.8 = 6.42 times you need to purchase 1000 rounds to break even on the membership. Do you shoot over 6000 rounds in a year? if so then you will be ahead, if not you need to re-think the membership process.

It works out for me pretty well because I order usually 2000 rounds a month between .22 Mini-Mag and the 9mm Fiocchi.

Natchez sale ends today 31 oct 2018 at midnight EST, with free shipping over 99.00 use code FS181027. I used it on 9MM UMC 115GR METAL CASE 600RDS Item #: RT23765C for 99.00. I ordered 2 boxes, so 1200 rds for TOTAL$199.98. if you do the math, 199.98/1200rds = 16.66 cents per round or bullet.
