It’s doable. Not sustainable, but doable.

What is an ammo exchange? I ain’t gettin’ rid of any of mine, and I won’t let anyone use my reloads.

If you have “excess” ammo you could let other FreePs know and maybe “work a deal”. These times call for “thinking outside the “”box””.

Why ask ‘them’ to do something that they have given ‘us’ the tools to perform ourselves?

PING LISTS, continuing SERIES of THREADS.

As someone else said, ‘we’ are not clear on what you mean by ‘exchange’.

A little more “outside the box”- how about a set of fake exchanges to tie up whatever investigators and resources HS uses to track that sort of thing?

I buy ammo at Cheaper Than Dirt and Buds and find that it is ever so slightly loosening up.

I look at least once a day at each site to see what's available. If it's what I'm looking for and at the right price, I jump.

Both are quick shippers.

Last Thursday evening, I made a purchase at Buds and by noon Tuesday, it was on my front porch.

Glockstore.com is another matter. I placed an order 15 days ago and have not heard a peep out of them. Perhaps they are selling items that are not yet in stock.

LOL, 'zackly! I'm stockpiling ammo I don't even have guns for.

Check out Gunbot ammo tracker, everyone. There's lots of ammo out there. Gunbot doesn't track prices at every retailer in the world (in fact, I think their "best deal" prices are a tad high), but if you need it and it's a fairly common caliber, you can pretty much buy as much as you want.

If I had excess ammo, it would mean I had it on pallets... And I’m not there yet... ;-)

Joking aside, I do see where there could be a benefit here, like if you had a bunch of a caliber you didn’t shoot often, while needing some more of one you did (though finding the counter-party might be rare).

This is a good accurate illustrated website describing and explaining the Colt Model 1860 .44 Army percussion ignition revolver

I had a well used (and put away wet) “over-buffed/polished” antique (with Civll War Serial Numbers) Colt 1860 Army revolver that was a Reb capture (I bought “well” from a well-known reputable antique firearms dealer in Atlanta GA) and I then tinkered with it, replaced a badly worn original (circa 1862) cylinder pin, tuned the action, and tightened up the frame-barrel to the orginal Colt design specifications.

I later also bought an accurately made modern aftermarket walnut stock and brass fitted clone/replica of the Colt 1860 detachable shoulder stock.

It was a classy and authentic display piece - but it had to go with some of my other nice revolvers and Derringers some years ago.

However times change - my private “Gun Lobby” here is neither sparse or dusty.

The orginal Colt Army .44 and Navy .36 Shoulder Stocks are rare and mucho expensive and all appear to made of Unobtainium - most that you might see in a museum or at a gun dealers are modern made replicas that have been “aged” by experts - Let the prospective buyer beware. If any Colt percussion revolver Shoulder Stock looks to be an authentic original - Someone is blowing apple cider in your ear while they pick your pocket.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Colt_Army_Model_1860

The original 1860 Colt Army had about the same deadly knockdown power of a modern Colt 1911A .45acp semi automatic pistol.

One shot and you were instantly flat on your butt and not about to get up and/or return fire.

900fps and a large heavy bullet.

FYI - Obama and his well-guarded wealthy Marxist buddies intend to make these fine historic antique firearms illegal for you to purchase, use, or own.

I belong to a local gun/ammo sales board and there are always some folks whining about people charging too much for their ammo. That it’s not “fair”, that the board has gone “down hill” because of all these people trying to “take advantage” of others.

Of course, I’m sure there was no whining when some guy sold his AR-15 before Dec 2012 for $400 because he needed the cash. These same folks were probably crowing what a good deal they got.

I’ve never bought ammo, over the internet as I have this fear about privacy, security, etc.

Perhaps I’m paranoid, but seems to me to order over the internet is to tell potential government eavesdroppers what armament I have by the ammo I order, as well the documentation by the credit card company verifies for them what it is that I have in my possession.

I prefer to order my ammo from a trusted dealer I know in town.

I like the “Ammo engine” at AR-15.com. Updated several times a day. Haven't used in in probably a year. Give it a try. Then also they do have a for sale section and used ammo shows up regularly. Also, M-4.net equipment exchange. But for new ammo the ar-15 site is great.

Dang it! I’ve been scared to check. 1 1/2 years ago I bought 1000 rd case of silver bear .223 for .14c rd. 6mo’s later I bought another case at .19c rd. I hated to pay the extra nickle but thought what the heck.

Damn .223 is a buck a round now!!!

And if the gov't wants to know who owns what, they will probably find a way.

“John” told the French Resistance to prepare for the coming invasion. They commited some acts of sabotage.
“Wound my heart-—” was the signal the landings would occur within 24 hours. That scene was in the cellar with the French moving out. The Germans sat playing bridge, “nothing to get that excited about”, even though they had been made aware of the message’s meaning. Great movie. Never miss it.
