Posted on 03/06/2014 7:37:42 PM PST by Kartographer

In recent months ammunition has slowly begun appearing on store shelves at major retailers in the United States.

“Russia Has Reportedly Halted All Exports To The US Of Russian Made Ammunition”

Unless Putin has some plan to invade the US, I think this move is a little short sighted for someone who is supposed to be so good at chess.

I think it will be the dollar bill after the troubles and the .223 will be the twenty and the 9mm the five.

I run Russian surplus 7.62 x 54R through my Mosin exclusively. Can’t remember the last time it jammed, and I’m using 10 round mags (with an Archangel stock).

“There’s no other logical explanation for its sudden and prolonged disappearance from the market.”

Well, except for, you know, the fact that people who are paranoid about the government buying everything they can get their hands on.

I have ATK, OLN, SWHC & RGR.

ATK & OLN will do very nicely in the coming months, as they have over the past 2yrs.

Right, except the stuff never makes it to the shelf. Otherwise, great theory.
