Several years ago, I found a sale and bought 1000 rounds of new LC '14 5.56 brass, never loaded and never crimped. It was $114, while normal price was around $150/k, as I recall. I have used lots of IMI brass, and like it also, but mine has all been range brass, and all of it had to be decrimped. In today's prices and the huge number of new shooters today, I would bet price would be near $300/k, but only a guess. Also, all material costs have gone up also.
