I really hope you're not surprised by that.

Whether or not any sort of ban is going to happen, people panicked, which means that anybody who wants to shoot in the next 6 months needed to stock up ahead of time. It formed a feedback loop and within 24 hours of the election it was pretty much all gone. You can still find some match loads and defense loads, but you're not going to find any deals for months.

IIRC it's .223 pressure instead of 5.56, but yeah, good enough for blasting ammo.

For fuck's sake.......Yes.  Order it.  You're just punching paper with it.  It doesn't need to spell big words or do hard math problems.  It has to go bang and be significantly farther away in a half second than it was before the loud scary noise.

The time for good deals on .223 has long passed.

Sad truth I feel, as well.

In fact, it feels like prices will never come down again. One day, we'll be reminiscing about when 5.56/.223 could be had for $.40/round.

Well, I picked up 1,000 rounds of American Eagle black box on sale at Gander Mountain yesterday for $349.   It comes in an ammo can too. The 1K box of Remington 9mm for $200 was sold out by the time I got there.  The girl there told me that they had 20 cases of it and it was gone in the first 15 minutes.  Say what you want about Gander Mountain, but if you shop them right you can get some good deals there.

Plus I got some Under Armor Baby Armor for my brand new grandson.

Yeah, why is that?  Pisses me off because they sometimes have really good deals.

Seriously....this. I get most of my components from either midway or from local gun stores (or the occasional gun show).

As I read this post, I can still remember the days when I could buy a thousand round case of winchester Q3131A from ammoman.com for around $200 per case.  





So, about that time machine somebody mentioned...

I went in for this deal last night and they were sold out of it.  Started talking to the guy at the counter and they were substituting a case of XM193 for it for the same price with no ammo can.  Bought 2!!!

Bright side of this all is I get to laugh at everyone that was laughing at me picking up those 420rd cans of 855 at Walmart for $164

I used to hit the gun shows the last hour or so and buy leftover 500 round cases of Win Q3131 for $75.00 when all the SA stuff was flooding the market and the manufacturers had to compete against surplus.
