That's a good start.  Imagine if we could still import ammo from China.

Bring back the $69 cases of surplus 7.62x39 and I'll help double that.

NO SHIT!

An average size container ship holds 50k ton, 17.8 isn't that much, let alone ammunition is pretty dense cargo.

I wouldn't be impressed even that's monthly numbers.

When Wolf Poly was 120 bucks per K, I was going through 3-4K a month, PLUS whatever training ammo was doled out, and running the Dillon every other night for 2 hours.

The economics of having a shooting habit, get real damn ugly quick, once a fucking pinko gets control.
Same shit happened when Klinton was in office.

The bitch of it is, you really can't stack it deep enough.

I SOOOOO hope Trump rescinds the EO that keeps U.S. surplus getting demilled.
I could use 10K of M855 and another 5K of M80.

I bought a lot of ammo in the last year. Most of it imported. I guess it wasn't as much as I thought. Off to order a few more cases.

I realized the other day that I have over 200.lbs of ammo at this point.

I think I might have problem

Oh, I learned my lesson years ago.

Buy it cheap, and stack it deep.

Filling a 1/3 of a modern freighter doesn't impress you, given its density?

Thats a fuck load of product.

Not as much as it sounds like. Ammo is heavy. At 35 pounds for a case of ammo (around the shipping weight for a case of 223) you get 1,020,000 cases of ammo. 45 auto and 7.62x39 would be heavier, and 22 LR obviously lighter.

So that's 1 million cases of 1000. Over 300 million Americans, 125 million households. So that's one case of ammo per 125 households.  Not enough! We still have domestic production, but realistically, most bulk ammo I get (besides 22 LR) comes from overseas.

One case per year per 125 households? Say it isn't so!

That's roughly equivalent to one billion rounds of 7.62 x 39.  I'm sure that part of the tonnage cited is packaging materials and containers, and larger rounds like .308, 30-06 and shotgun shells weigh 2-3 times as much, so I would say the total amount is probably closer to half a million rounds.  

That's about 500,000 cases of 1,000 rounds each.  When you consider the number of gun owners, it really doesn't seem like a lot.  

Kind of like when everyone was freaking out about the 10 year contract for ammunition DHS acquired from Federal.   When you do the math, that billion rounds was only enough to cover training and qualifications.  

Anyone who shoots regularly knows that 10,000 rounds of ammunition really isn't that much.  To the unfamiliar person though, it sounds like someone is preparing for war.

ETA - looks like the guy above me did the math too and came to the same conclusion.

What is 1000 rounds like 30 lbs?
Link Posted: 12/17/2016 12:04:25 PM EDT
[#40]
This is only imported ammo right?  500 million rounds for 100 million+ gun owners is only like 5 rounds per owner... Unless my math is shitty

Your problem is you don't have enough ammo.

223 is about 30 lbs a case.  

If you only have a little over 200 lbs, you only have 7k rounds.

If it is spread over multiple calibers,  your situation is even worse.

I bought 3,000 rounds of pistol and rifle ammo right before the election (you know, just in case kinda thing). I didn't need it at all but it was all American made and I'll use it at some point. MAGA!
