Russian and Chinese military strategists estimate it will take 50 million troops to occupy America, so until each citizen stores a million rounds each there is not enough ammo.

You have work to do, get busy!

R-32....A little touchy today? Your posting had 2 comments and then basically a SHOVE IT comment to me. Now you resort to profanity in your second post. Gee, no wonder why people abuse you for 8 hours a day.

Ok, now before I lock this... carry on.

Do you think this will have an effect on the prices we pay for ammo at WAC-Puyallup?

Yes I think the price is going to go up slightly on all ammo ( even Wolf).

But even the price raise in Gasoline affects the cost of goods.

Remember what happened 1.5 years ago, in the middle of the Iraq conflict, "skunk boy" raised pricing on Wolf 7.62 to $109.00 per 1000, from it's normal at that time of $79/1000 stating that it was all being used elsewhere. I called bullshit on that. It was simple supply and demand, gouging, price fixing whatever you want to call it.

In the case of 5.56 the more our boys use, the less production runs get allocated for civilian use, meaning a shortage, or a percieved shortage equally higher prices.

Im starting to really like the 55/62 grn WOLF for plinking it seems to be just fine for the stuff I do at 100 yds and closer. The price is reasonable, and I can clean the casings up with my magnet.and I have to clean my rifles anyway, so a little more muck is not big thing.

I can save the rest of the good stuff for later.

How much should I pay for ammo at 1,000 rounds with a can at the show?

What's the highest I should pay?

Think also of raw material. Copper is going up, therefore...

Shoot air rifles. Air is (still) free and lead can be reused easily.

Sounds great! That would be a good opportunity to meet the croud. OK. I'll try to be there on Saturday and take the Talon and a "bigger brother". The GA folks were already introduced to the Talon in the range.
