    Do we have a thread on gun and ammo shortages?

    I saw that AIM and SGammo have been selling surplus Austrian 7.62x51mm ammo. Some of the earlier stuff is berdan primed and the later (1983 or so) is boxer primed. Does anyone here have any experience shooting it?

    Ammo is hitting pre-sandy hook prices, pmags are going for less than $9 on sale, but I also need to finish up the new chicken yard. Primary arms has their gen 2 black pmags on labor day sale for $7.99. I am going to kick myself later if I pass that price up...

    On May 4th, I checked out ammoseek.com for 5.56 ammo deals. They listed "By Texans For Texans" as being the cheapest with a price of 67 bucks per hundred for FMJ. I ordered 300 rounds for 222 bucks total. Their site said they had 147 "battle packs" in stock at the time. Today, I got an e-mail...

    Folks, was just curious to see if the AK people had any preference between these types of ammo and why.

    Does anyone know what the deal is with the price of the Lake City 5.56 Green Tip 62 gr ammo?. About 3 months ago I bought two of the 420rds W/metal Ammo cans or $145.00 each from S&G ammo,...is a deal like that around still or are those deals gone for good or should I just sit it out and wait...

    Looking to expand my stockpile of 223, so who has the best deals on brass cased ammo? Over the past few years I have been buying Monarch 223 from Academy sports and outdoors. Monarch is something like $4.89 for a box of 20 but is steel cased. After taking inventory last weekend I decided I...

    I got the itch to buy more ammo. Before buying more, I thought I'd look at what I had around already. Most of my ammo is stored in 50 cal cans. They have been stored in a nice dry area for 3 years and in a non-climate controlled basement for a year. hunting grade ammo: All looked as good as...

    Hey guys, I just wanted to share a few thoughts about ammo stockpiles. I can't tell you how many times I've seen people post that they've got 50K rounds of ammo, and need more. I've seen various numbers, estimates, and arguments for how much you need, but I wanted to do my own figuring and see...

    How many rounds do you have, in what caliber, for when the SHTF? I just picked up 2,000 of .223, and 200 .40 S&W yesterday. It prolly brings my total up to 4-5,000 I guess. But a lot of them are for my hunting gun arsenal (.300 Win Mag, 30-06, .308, .243, .257 Weatheby Mag, .22 LR) and pistol...

    Which do you use in your SHTF AK or SKS hollow point, soft point or ball. I am buying wolf hollow point ammo and keep at least four mags loaded with it all the time.

    Ok guys and gals, I am on the eve of buying myself a new 45acp pistol, hopefully a Remington 1911 R1. Its probably been 7 years since I have owned a 45 or bought 45acp ammo. Since I have been out of the loop for so long, I am here to ask advice. Winchester sells some white box 230 grain round...

    Has anyone have a reason NOT to store ammo in a car? Is there danger of it going off, ruining, or any laws that say you cannot store more than x number of pounds? Reason I ask this is because I don't want to wait until the last minute to load my bug out vehicle with all the ammo I have. I...

    I know I am going to open up a can of worms on this thread, but here it goes anyways...I see alot of people, myself in my early days of prepping trying to start their own armory. Before I moved my stuff to a different location I had more than some armories. 1st: I strongly believe that when...

    I was curious on other members thoughts were about reloading prior to and after SHTF for defense and barter. I have been stockpiling reloading supplies the last 14 months and especially the last 2 months as I was informed on 1/1/2012 prices are going up on factory made ammo and reloading...

    Hello All, I recently realized I made a made a huge BOO BOO. I have 500 rounds Russian 7.62x39 and 1000 rounds CCI 22lr in a room I smoke in. This ammo has been in here for about 9 months. I should have put the ammo in ammo cans, but I forgot about it. Will this make the ammo dangerous or...

    There is no doubt that Americans have been stockpiling ammo since 2007, maybe even earlier. The nationwide ammo shortages are now starting to come to an end, and the shelves are better stocked in my area. I myself started building up my ammo supplies years ago, but my collecting got much more...
