I am not sure on the price, have to look. I did buy 4, 72" pieces for 134 after tax.

47 cents an inch? something like that.

so, ~5.64/ft

When I got my 1.50x.250 DOM from Ballistic i paid 5.85/ft now its 6 something. it ain't cheap.

Buy Wyotech decided they want to charge us "consumables" when we buy steel.. so that same stuff was close to $13 a foot up there!
