Don't know about anyone else but...

I was at the Hickory NC gunshow last weekend. There was lots of ammo to be had a good prices.

Wolf 223 in 55 and 62 gr could be had for $119 out the door per k.
Wolf Gold for $200/k

and YES Guat 223 for the going rate less shipping (um I think I remember 230 for 1440? or somethingk like that)
and 7.62x39 was available at about $100/k

of course there was the local luny who wanted $8 a box of M193....

I stocked up
and the typical 440 rnds of 7.62x54r for $32
and spam cans of 8mm mauser for $35 for 440...

all is not lost!

Im glad your Fun Shows Have Stuff. The Local Show In Jacksonville NC Always sucks for ammo. theres more people selling swords knives and airsoft crap than guns and ammo.

A vender at the Indy fun show had XM193 for $99 per case of 500. He had lots of cases too.

Should have bought all the 7.62x39 @ $100/K.......you aren't going to see that price too often anymore.

yea, but why hoard something I have no weapon that will shoot it?

I'll let it for those who "need" it....

and NO I don't need another reason to buy another rifle...

I'm guessing you're female? That isn't male logic. I bought my AR because I'd had a dozen Colt 20rnd mags for thirty years or so. I needed something to use them with, so I surrendered to the inevitability of it all.

As long as they're not selling 7.7 Jap or something, load up and worry about the hardware later.

Our gun shows in El Paso suck. There is more military surplus than firearms. And coins and swords and crap. Usually there is very little ammo

Who are you and what are you doing in my forum?

You don't NEED ammo for a rifle you don't have?
You don't NEED another rifle?

BEGONE, FOUL DEMON!!!!!!!!!

Yeah, I accidentally bought 100 pieces of .45 Colt brass the other day instead of .44 Magnum, so I'm thinking "ok I need to get another revolver".

heh, yeah there was one time I bought some 8mm ammo, and then went down to the sporting goods store and bought the rifle to shoot it.

I also have a couple boxes of 28ga, but I have yet to locate a 28ga shotgun for sale to shoot it.

couple more weeks and I'll be home and awaiting the next show. I haven't been to one since this time last year.
