Thanks for posting this Zemylak. Just a couple days ago it was "on sale" for $5.49 a box, glad I passed on it then. "The "hot deal" price is $1 a box less!

Not a bad deal. But I have about 1200-1400 rounds of unsealed 7N6 to use before I have to start pondering opening any more crates. I’ll probably pass now, and regret it later.

Best deal out there right now. 22.45 cents/rd delivered.

FYI this is Barnaul ammo

Ordered another 1k as I just finished up the 3k I got on the last deal they ran on the old 30rd packaging.

I could be wrong But I think Academy is a Florida based store. Florida residents pay tax

Texas charges tax on orders. I think that if there is a store in your state you will be charged tax on orders if there is not a store in your state then no tax is charged.

Yes, I wish New Mexico had a store...but no store makes online orders tax free so it's still good!

Wish they would drop it bit more. Back when they clearance all of the 30rd boxes to prepare for the 20rd boxes hitting the shelf, I think I got a bunch of the 30rd boxes for like $3 a box or something ridiculous like that. I didn't realize it was what they were doing since the local store was at the time closing a moving to a new bigger location. Just figured they didn't want to haul this stuff with them. But then I saw the newer 20rd boxes and connected the dots. I got enough then to last a while.

Anyone pick up any of the 54r? 39cpr shipped for 185 grain non corrosive isn't bad at all either.

Academy HQ is in Katy, Tx. Just West of Houston on I-10

We pay sales tax here in Texas because they are in Texas.

If a company has a "physical presence" in a state, they have to charge sales tax on any sales to that state even if the merchandise is coming from out of state. IOW, if your state has an Academy store, you pay sales tax. No stores, you don't.

If they have a shipping hub in your state then you also pay taxes.
