With a little patience and periodic checking at gun-deals.com's ammo section, it should be possible to do better than this even given the recent ridiculous price rises.
Check the 7.62x54R ammo listing, put in your ZIP code, and sort by delivered price per round. Sportsman's Guide has periodic 10% and 15% off coupons, and also periodic free shipping (click through on the deal link). I just bought 880 rounds for $167 (delivered price) last week using a free shipping coupon. A little patience will pay off.

I know that there might be prices lower than that but PSA happened to be very dependable. Sportsman Guide in turn just a bunch of empty promises. They accepted my order recently just to tell me in a month that shipping date will be in July. So even PSA price is higher by 10-15$ than elsewhere I will still buy from them to not take extra risk. I see your item is on backorder. You should expect a long wait - expected availability means nothing when comes from sportsmanguide. Regarding site - it is primitive - based on old user posted deals that expired long time ago. I have a better Source with real time data but will not share with you as you gave me red for nothing.

Actually SG has decent deals, most of the time folks complaining about them fail to really look at what they are ordering before hitting the buy button before realizing an item is on B/O or not in stock, Its so easy to p/u a phone and call the toll free number now isn't it,lol
I've had nothing but issues from Sportsmans Guide... even ordering in stock items... i get an email 3 weeks after i order... so sorry, or distrubutor can't deliever we need to extend your expected date out 3 months..... never again
