Where to find M118LR ammunition (low cost is better)

Looking for some low cost M118LR or MK316 ammunition. I know... like being married to a unicorn.... I get it.

Suggestions on site that may have some for sale these days?

TIA!

Sometimes you can find a good deal at your local Gun Shows from a private dealer instead of regular dealer that buys and sells for top $... Deals here sometimes within the PX.

Side note, why is the system still having me wait on my post? Is there a magic number of post? I could not find it in the newbie area, it just said after the first post.
Thanks!

Here's where I bought my last box:

Bulk ammo usually ships "free". (Really, they mean at no extra charge for shipping.)

I really like the similar offerings manufactured by IMI and available from such as SGAmmo in both 168gr and 175gr.
Their 175gr BTHP SMK OTM Razorcore is IIRC almost identical to M118LR.
http://www.sgammo.com/product/imi/50...match-ammo-imi
And 500rds is only $479.50 - $0.96 per rd.

My M1A did well shooting the IMI 175gr at 600 yards.

The Federal FGMM 175 is the same thing isn't it?

Yes, I do believe that the M118LR, FGMM and IMI Razercore are all 175gr BTHP SMK OTM bullets and loaded almost identical to each other.
But I could be wrong, someone correct me?

I snagged 3 boxes of it the other day along with a box of FGGM 168, 3 boxes of HSM 168 and a couple other boxes of .308 for $110 shipped! Also got another 200 rds of the M1A OTM load from CMP, best buy around for a really good shooting load.

Thanks from MO638

I failed to mention, the MK316 is aka GM762M2
and for the 308 version, GM308M2 just as an FYI.
