Do you remember how many rounds and what caliber the feds bought up last year. Apparently they got all surplus on hand and is probably the reason .223 is over 100% more expensive if you can find it.

I don't shoot the .223, but for the last 4 years anytime there was .223 for sale at a gun show people were buying it as fast as they could.

Private citizens have been stockpiling, and not just .223 but everything, because they knew the day was coming.

Us “gun nuts” have been proved right and it's just a matter of time before us “SHTF nuts” are also proved right.

The day is coming.

Those of us with the beans and bullets will soon be laughing at those without.

.40cal HP was the predominant caliber, but there were others, too:
