AMMO Now Available
My E-Mail | Aug 12, 2013

Posted on 08/12/2013 11:35:17 AM PDT by Yosemitest

I just got an E-Mail that .22 LR and other types of ammo are available.
Sales are going fast and the Sportsmans Guide site keeps going down.

It might be a trick to take over your computer. Let me try it before you and let you know if it’s safe....

Bought some 9mm plinking ammo from Palmetto State a couple weeks ago.

When big sis left, ammo became available. Odd, huh?

You using this for a revolver? That’s about what it’s good for. Rifles and semis no.

Right you are.

I just checked Bulk Ammo and they have 1,000 rounds loose of 5.56 Lake City XM855 62gr (green tip) on sale for $545.00. That's major improvement.

No, I actually think the manufacturers have been going all out for the past 8 months and warehousing most of it until they could get good quantities on the shelves. Sure, they’ve put some out along the way, but now they’re really dumping it (in a good way) into the market. I think doing it this way they avoid the guys buying the limited quantities and then re-selling (scalping) it on Gunbroker.

For the first time in a looong time I have seen ads for 10,000 rds of 5.56 for something just under $9k.

9mm are available but still kind of expensive...but the 5.56’s look great.

Does anyone have a 22LR brand suggestion.
I would like to buy 2000-3000 rounds for long term storage.
Subject to the occasional canoe accident of course.
I dont want crap, but I dont need premium match grade either.
thx FL

There has been (relatively) cheap subsonic 22LR around for some time. But I’m not buying a bolt action rifle just for that purpose.

If you’re going to buy a rifle to take advantage of less costly ammo, get a decent AK47 and load up on Golden Tiger for 25¢ a round. Better for zombies.

I got the same e-mail notice and then seen that the .22 LR is $10 a box. Geez. Ordered a good quantity last week from AIM for $5 a box. Got it delivered in 3 days.

The last box I bought were Remington 22 LR High Velocity Golden Bullet Hollow Point, and a box of 500 round cost me $16.50 before tax.
Yeah, that was a few years ago.

The ammo shortage is officially over.

I think most people bought all they need or could afford for right now.

Anything above $2.00 for a box of 50 rounds is excessive.
The Firearms and Ammunition Excise Tax (FAET) applies an 11% tax rate on ammunition.

Plain old Federal JHP. It should be $20-$25 per 525 count box if you can find it.

Get a used ammo can, you can probably fit 7000 rounds in there.

I just found CCI small and large rifle primers on Natchez. Ordered two boxes of each (one for me, one for a friend).

One of the most beautiful gun stores I've every been in was the Cabela's in Pennsylvania, North of I-81 and West of Highway 322 around Harrisburg.

Yep, I am there at that store too frequently......was there yesterday in fact.

BTW, that Cabela’s is the largest gun store in the world. It is also the largest Cabela’s in terms of both sales and square feet for the Cabela’s chain. I like to think that I do my part to contribute.

I have the Cabela’s Black credit card......you need to spend at least $25,000 per year to get it. It’s my addiction.

Just had a major breakthrough in my marriage the other day.

Mrs. Chandler suggested that from now on, when I buy ammo to use for an outing at the range, I should buy twice the amount that I am going to use and put the extra aside. In a year's time I should have a lot of ammo in reserve.

I swear that woman is a genius.

If you're spending that kind of money, you'd be interested in a Class III Mini Vulcan Gun,
or maybe this Browning 1919 Beltfed 22LR Machine Gun

And now that it’s too late to cancel the order with Natchez, I find the prices at Cabela’s to be significantly lower.

They are expensive. I manage a small store, and yes, we have a website,too. I see CTD and laugh how they are gouging people way over what most small shops are charging!
MFg. prices did go way up after April 1st, and like gas, I don't expect it to go down for a while, and it'll never be what it was before. I suspect the ammo manufacturers 9and distributors) are not helping the situation, and are enjoying the lingering drought...
