Ahhhh, the days the the golden age of surp. Been tossing out old boxes and paperwork and ran across a invoice from AIM. 12 battle packs of Guat surplus @ 360 rounds per battle pack equals 4320 rounds for the princely sum of $739.80, so 17.1 cents a round, and that wasn't even at the height of the surplus ammo days.............

That was from Feb 2006.

I try not to think about it . I remember when I bought my first AK ~2.5 years ago, I could buy Yugo surplus 7.62x39 at Dunham's for under $.25 a round. Now I scour the internet trying to find steel case for $.25 a round. And all the Dunham's store around me are selling Wolf for $.50 a round . At age 21, I don't have the fond memories of the cheap, readily available ammo before the 2000s .

Seriously, Fuck Obama, Fuck Biden, Fuck Feinstein, Fuck James Holmes and Adam Lanza, Fuck liberals, etc.

I remember when I could buy 7.62 x 39mm at fun shows for about .09 cents per round in the 90's.

Cheap guns and ammo, coupled with insane hi cap mag prices. It was a mixed bag.

$20 South African battle packs, anyone?


I used to buy the shit out of the .308 battle packs.



How about Barnaul 9mm at $1.99/50? That really wasn't all that long ago either...

Wow..

Even on my reloads, I think I only get down to like $.23 or something

A weekend sale on PMC 5.56 FMJ, $89.00 per 1000rd case and I only bought 10 cases at that price. Winchester MilSpec 5.56 FMJ was going for @129.00 in the same timeframe and I only bought 5 cases while that was available. And those were "Clinton Panic" prices.

Wish I could go back in a time machine to 1997-98 and bring back a pallet or two of that stuff.

Might have been Maly, but Sportsmans guide had free shipping. I paid less than 17 cents, in fact .17 would have been a lot.

AIM had the corroded Guat ammo, that was a deal maybe .12

I paid less for SA [about 12 cents a round] 5.56 but that was a couple years earlier. I burned a lot of SA during the time it was readily available. I used to go to the gunshow and buy from one dealer, his prices were always really good.

I feel like I'm about to cry. Real talk.
Link Posted: 7/27/2013 4:07:27 PM EST
Yup, I remember my cousin and I buying S.A. battle backs and splitting them, WWB at ~160/case, PMC at ~150/case.


I wish that instead of all the AR companies popping up, one or two would instead manufacture ammunition. Probably a shit ton more headaches with that though.
