I ordered 1K from Wideners for $605 delivered and thought I had a reasonable deal. I saw the slickdeals email and ordered 1K from Natchez $485.42 delivered. I hope it isn't a pricing error. I cancelled the order at Wideners. ETA - it's marked $729 now!

It is listed as a FMJ projectile. This does not necessarily mean that it is not bi-metal though.

The box is marked SMQ09B323-022. At least that is what the picture states. If so, this can be Headstamped LC 07 and LC 08 based on the SMQ nomenclature.

I've got a bunch of this stuff. Well not from this store but the LC XM80C that I have is definitely bi-metal projectiles.

Can tell if it is bi metal with a magnet held against the bullet? Cabellas had Herters 9mm for a very low price but It didn't say if it was bimetal or not and I could no tell for sure with a magnet.

I can never seem to save enough for ammo. Every time that I do, I see another FN product I want instead. I started with the SCAR 17, and now I have added the PS90 and well as the five-seven. I couldn't go with the FN F2000, so I just ordered the TAVOR. And then everything needs trigger upgrades, leupold scopes, etc. I only have enough 7.62 for a couple of mags to go bang a few times. :cry:

Just got my case today. Two 500 round boxes, loose. Stamped as LC 13. Marked as American Eagle by Federal, XM80CS SMQ13J334-041. Bi-metal as a magnet sticks to it. Case mouths have been annealed. No biggie as pretty much all 308 ammo that comes out of LC is bi-metal except for the exotic rounds like the M118LR.

As a reloader, I come across a lot of bi-metal projectiles. We are going to see more and more of this stuff on the shelves as the price of ammo keeps climbing due to raw material costs.
