    The quantity above is 240 of MX units. I don’t see where to calculate the actual number of rounds ordered. I’m just tring to figure out the amount ordered. Does anyone know this?

  4. Christopher de Vidal says:

    This could be 21.6M rounds, but to my eyes it appears this is just an order for 240 x 1,000 rounds, or 240k rounds, or about five day’s worth of qualification rounds at the FLETC. Notice the words “PRICE PER 1000,” which tells me you multiply the number on the right (100, 100, 40) by 1,000, which gives you 100,000, 100,000 and 40,000 (the numbers in the description).

    How can we know for sure how to multiply this out correctly?
