I'm really getting a bad feeling about availability. 7.62x39 seems to be dried up everywhere and .223 and 308 have been dwindling fast.

Is it time to stock up if you can find it? I hope more ammo is on ships but I guess you never know.

Go to sportsmansguide.com , natchezss.com , or cheaperthandirt.com
Plenty of 7.62x39 there.

I have mentioned this before, but I have seen this also, what is coming in, is not in the same quantities that have been seen in the past. I do not know what is going on, be it the UN BS, supplies are thinning out or what, but when ammo does come in, it is gone pretty quickly. For all I know it's just because people are stocking up for a rainy day, and buying in larger quantities then in the past.

Regardless, I have almost 5 K ordered and coming my way, my ammo "collection" is pretty much done. In 5 years I might be very glad I bought when I did.

i generally don't panic, but i will be focusing all of my short term purchases on ammo unitl i get a comfort factor regarding supply.

good luck guys.

Sorry, I did not know the big online places were out of stock.

I was at the Philadelphia/Valley Forge gun show last weekend and they had great prices.

Federal Independence Brass case 9mm $5 per box
1000 rounds Wolf 7.62 HP and FMJ at $94
1000 rounds Wolf .223 62 gr FMJ $104
1000 rounds South African .308 M80 $150
500 rounds XM193 in individual boxes $94 --lot 102 with 2005 headstamps

I an now kicking myself for not getting more. I live in an apartment and will be moving to a house soon. Its getting hard to hide my hoards of ammo from my new wife (been married 6 weeks)!
The full ammo cans are damned heavy...she will figure it out soon.

try ammoman
I think we are seeing a general drying up of the surplus ammo market.
But never fear - there is always some warehouse, somewhere, that has yet to be opened.
Remember the days of $80 Norinco SKS?
I don't - I was too young.
But now are the days of the $80 Yugo SKS - learn the lesson.
Buy it cheap - stack it deep.
