I went to the AIM website today and the only 223/5.56 ava. was the IMG 55gr no Adcomhock.gif. I haven't called yet to verify. Do you think Aim Discontiuned it

In AIM's last flyer they were advertising that it was your last chance to pick up Adcom.

I don't know if it is out of production or AIM just chose to stop carrying it.

I just called and all of AIM's Adcom is spoken for waiting to be shipped to customers. No more Adcom will do.

I hope they have enough SA .308 for awhile

I thought ADCOM was going to keep producint their M855? What happened?

Did the port deal get sand in their manginas, so they will no longer sell it here? WTF!?! [confused]

Maybe UAE decided to keep their surplus "just in case" the middle east tensions increase.
Ya'll keep waiting for more surplus stuff to pop up...................MIGHT be a long wait.

I'm stocked so I don't care anymore either way........

I don't know if that is the case or not, I just wouldn't be suprised.

The bitchin about it and the price they were getting for it may have caused it to be discontinued...

Everything is drying up, unless more surplus comes in country, you'll see more price increases and then all of it drying up. I believe AIM has already cut down on the sales to ammo dealers on their SA 7.62x51 stuff. One of the dealers I have dealt with for many years told me that. AIM was THE place for dealers to get it.

How many ammo dealers will be around without surplus to sell? [or enough to make it worthwhile?] You can only have so many guys trying to sell the normal stuff and if the surplus guys go to it also supplies at each dealer will shrink. I doubt that they can increase ammo production any more then it is now.

Hey, theres always Olympic out there.

I bought 4k a week or so ago and was thinking "I should have bought twice that". Now I'm kicking myself. Despite all the reported problems with it I've never had a failure, discounting the few bad rounds I pulled out.

ETA - bought lots of SA 308 too, you can never have enough if the price is right. Lesson learned.

Same here. I need a rest. I was going to stop stocking when all my ammo cans were full. I never thought that would happen. Just had to go to the local surplus store yesterday and pick up another five cans. It's a disease.

You too eh? I have 100 cans full plus 17 crates, just bought 14 cans [50s and fat 50s]. All I have is 3 left that are not empty. I still have ammo I need to put in storage. Shoulda bought 25 cans instead but I was feeling cheap that day. Such is life.

I am waiting for my most recent order a mere 2500 rounds. It shot well out of my gun last weekend. I was hoping this would be around for a while longer.
