Hey guys,
Just came home from the Gun show which is about 18 miles away in a neighboring
city. The only 7.62X39 they had was the Wolf softpoint, at $150.00 firm out the door, and it
was very limited. The same guy had Wolf .223 62Gr FMJ cases for $130.00 out the door, 500
Rd cases of XM193 for $99.00 out the door, and 1000 Rd cases of Q3131A for $189.00 out the
door. Should I wait and order online or should I go back and pickup some more .223 or 5.56?
I know that even the .223 Wolf 62Gr FMJ ammo is even starting to get harder to find lately.
What do you think? Should I go back tomorrow morning, or should I go right now before it's
all gone.

Is the Winchester Q3131 or Q3131A? The Q3131 is loaded to spec, but just isn't accurate in my carbine. If it's Q3131A buy it. If you can get the XM193 for that price, buy all you can afford.

Sorry guys, I made a little mistake. The Winchester Q3131A I told you about for $189 out the door,
was really Winchester Q3131 for $199 out the door. The case lot came in 20rd boxes, and on the outside of the box it was labeled 5.56. This is my first time ever trying this brand in 5.56, Did I do
all right? My stash mainly consists of .223 winchester white box, .223 PMC, 5.56 S&B, a shit
load of .223 62Gr Wolf, and an endless supply of my reloads.
To be honest with you, when I went back for the second time, I decided while driving to the show,
that I was going to buy another case of the .223 62Gr Wolf, but guess what, he was completely
sold out. Please keep in mind that I have also called a few places earlier in the week for the
62Gr Wolf, and everyone was also out. What the hell is going on? Is this stuff going to get just as
hard to find as the 7.62x39 FMJ Ammo. Is it my imagination, or is ammo going to become very
scares in the near future?

even at $199.00 OTD for Q3131 i would buy as much as i could. the best price i have seen was $199 plus tax so about $216 OTD.

I would have tried to buy all the Win. and also the Fed..

Was this the Saratoga gun show? I went, and couldn't find any of those deals? I'm around Albany, would you be willing to share where this ammo can be had? Thanks

Yes it was at the Saratoga show.
