Would anyone be interested in doing a group buy for bottles?

After doing some research, in single pallet quantities with freight (~$120/pallet) bundled in, the prices go something like this:

Box of (12) 22oz = $7.40 shipped

"Loose" 12oz (shrink wrapped in bulk on the pallet) = 23.5c/bottle or equiv of $5.64 per case of 24

Pallets of 22oz are 112 boxes of 12, pallets of 12oz are 2250 "loose" bottles.

If there is enough interest, we'll organize something. The $5-7 savings per box compared to LHBS isn't meaningful unless you're using a lot of bottles.
