    At least the ones in my area. It sure took them a long time. The cases had been packed for months since they said they were going to stop all handgun and 'military' ammo. Federal .223 or Winchester 5.56 25 cents a round. I picked up JHP 240 gr. .44 Mag for $30 for 50. (White box) and...

    What is everyones choice for stockpiling hollow points, especially 9mm and 45acp. There for awhile I was buying Remington green box 9mm and 45acp, but prices have gone through the roof. I need something cost effective but reliable. Before someone mentions reloading, I am working on plans for...

    From a prepping point of view, should "buy cheap and stack deep" apply to 22 long rifle? What kind of accuracy could we expect to see between cheap and expensive 22 long rifle? I decided to put those questions to a test at a local sand pit. My oldest son brought his new Remington model 597...

    Local walmart has federal, american eagle and PPU 223 remington in stock. American eagle is made by federal. I guess it is their value line? Is there a reason to buy brand name Federal over American eagle? What is the best value line 223 Remington to stockpile? I am looking for standard 55...

    The shelves are empty, except for a few select calibers. Those calibers are 243 Winchester, 30-30 Winchester, 270 Winchester, 7mm magnum, 45 colt and 30-06 Springfield. A line of people are standing at the counter in the hopes the store got a shipment in. Sounds like something from a movie...

    So I have been thinking in worst case scenario what ammo do you think will be most plentiful. This is my list based on nothing but guesses, so it is quite likely it will not be very accurate. .22 long Rifle 5.56/223. I put them in the same category as I can fire both from my AR15. Of the two I...

    In light of the feeding frenzy that's upon us, I thought I'd start a thread to post where the deals for ammo or mags are at. I just ordered 500 rounds of 7.62x39 154 grain softpoint ammo from www.centerfiresystems.com. It was 130 bucks with free shipping. The free shipping is good until the...
