Subject: Government buying out all the 5.56 Military surplus ammo and is telling ammo dealers to stop selling to their vendors and civilians.

I have been calling allot of ammo distributors and ALL of them are telling me that our government is all the 5.56-.223 cal military surplus ammo. And their also telling the ammo distributors stop selling the ammo to civilians and their vendors because the government is buying it all up from everyone they can. I have also spoken with theses ammo dealers and they told me that the 5.56 and .223 ammo is going way up in price.

For instance…I paid $149.00 for federal surplus 440 rounds of steal core and now at the gun show today it was selling for $440.00 for 420 rounds. I have checked and ALLOT of places online are out of the Military surplus ammo by federal. M193 and M855 SS109 ammo. I did find one place still carrying both these ammo’s and good prices still, but their the only place I could find. If interested let me know and Ill forward the info.

I was also told by the same ammo dealers that the government is going to buy all the 9mm and .45 ammo up, so hurry and buy while you can at the lower prices while still available. Guess if they won’t take our guns because they figure that there are some many out there, they will just buy all most popular military calibers. Can’t shoot a gun with no ammo…stock up now while you still can.

They also said the government will continue to purchase all the ammo through the presidential election and they will continue to until the president tells them to stop. And if obama gets reelected instead of rejected, you know he wont stop the purchasing of all the ammo mentioned above.

Can't be shooting Muslims with ammo made by the Jews! Also AFAIK the military has not purchased M193 type ammo (55gr) in years. They may have stockpiles that they use up for training though I suppose.

We sell ammo here, but if we sell out, there's none for me.


It's quite the dilemma...

I have never shot any m193 during any of my units training exercises. It's always been M855. I've never even seen any at an ASP.
There is no M193 or M855 shortage in my town.

Good grief, seriously? This is how it works:

1) When supply goes up/demand and price go down.

2) When supply goes down/demand and price go up.

no, but they are stripping out 308 and 556 and selling the components. Powder, projectiles and brass.

Everybody is out but this ONEEEEEEE place I know of, I'll let you in on the secret if you ask nicely. Of course they ain't cheap but you'd better get it before it all dries up!

I call B.S. but shortages are clearly starting from all the buying going on. FOXNEWS just ran a story on their homepage today which isn't going to help the issue.

Excerpt from the FOXNEWS article:

“Sales usually increase this time of year with tax returns, but this year has been higher than most,” Mike Weeks, owner of Georgia Gun Store in Gainesville told FoxNews.com. “People are scared their gun rights are going to be curtailed after the election."

Weeks said his sales are up around 30 percent, and that he now sells ammo by the case.

“Usually people come in to buy three or four boxes for target practice. Now they are coming in asking what kind of deals they could get on a case,” he said.
