didn't know the Pentagon could be buying something for $5, thought of one grand entry level hahaha
Bad @Jura!!
The DOD buys in bulk as such a single $5.00 part doesn’t happen. It’s part of a bulk order. The DOD buys things for less than a grand all the time. They get M4A1 rifles for about $700.00 but when you get them in lots of 12,000 units it’s quickly builds up. A single bullet will run for a couple bucks depending on type. But in lots by the millions.

actually I suspect bullets are cheaper than the steel they're made of:

Your eastern bloc is showing American ammo is brass cased with copper jackets only the core of some rounds is steel. And that site is with a commercial mark up. The AP types can cost more and larger rounds also cost more.
 
in the region where I had lived there was a young guy, just graduated from a technical university, was about to get married, wasn't addicted, was from a well-known family with many children, in short no apparent problems, but hanged himself :-( he comes to my mind when I hear of suicides, now didn't read below the headline
Active duty suicides are on the rise, as the Pentagon works on new messaging and strategy
