I will be getting $325 soon. A neighbor is selling off a tons of ammo like SA 5.56 for $100/1000 and .30-06 on Garand clips for $90/600. I am leaning towards getting all the ammo I can. What do yall think?

A few weeks ago I would have said get the sight, with all the insane crap with the illegal mexicans as of late, I'd get the ammo... for sure!

If the SHTF (which it could), you'll be wanting ammo.

My .02. Change available upon request.

I would by 3250 rnds of SA 5.56 with your $ and then mow his yard and wash his cars for the rest. Save up and buy the EOTECH later--you'll be glad you got that ammo. Hard to enjoy the EOTECH w/o ammo!

The best scoped, most accurate rifle in the world is a baseball bat without ammo..

Ammo... unless you don't have sights at all, then get irons and the ammo... You may as well not have ammo if you can't hit your target.

I think I have like 4000 5.56 and 2200 30-06 on clips. But ammo like this is a rare commodity!

Buy the ammo, no question. I don't think it even matters how much you have.

BOTH SHOULD BE BANNED FROM CIVILIAN USE!

but get the ammo.

Buy the Eotech and IM the contact info for your neighbor to ME.

I'm of the opinion that you ought to have alot of ammo before you go and get the fancy sights. More ammo = more practice, and hopefully more skill BEFORE you have the sight.

I've never heard of any calls for banning/restricting the sights, and several concerning ammo.

Get ammo first, more mags second, sights/lights third. Don't go crazy and be way out of balance on any of them.

AMMO....

You can always point shoot!!

If he has any extra-shoot me a PM..

Good shooting!!
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 5:50:09 PM EDT
At those prices, get the ammo!
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 6:06:09 PM EDT
You'll never see ammo prices like that again! If it's been stored properly, buy it all! The Eotech will always be the same price and will still be there when another $350 drops in your lap.

I enjoy shooting with iron sights. I can hit some othe steel targets at 600 yards with the irons, so Im pretty good with irons. I like open sights anyways. K.I.S.S. comes to mind
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 9:38:13 PM EDT
IM me your neighbors info. Hell, I'll even buy some of the ammo from you with a markup price.
Link Posted: 3/31/2006 9:43:12 PM EDT
the better deal and more useful

AMMO!
Link Posted: 4/1/2006 9:38:09 AM EDT
Keep 3000rds of M193 and a CASE 75gr. Blue Box black Hills or HORNADY if you can afford it?
FOR SHTF STASH
Then buy your eotech

Could be Korean 30-06, and Korean 30-06 is corrosive.

just a heads up.

Not true. The KA headstamp is corrosive, the PS is not. The KA is usually clipped and bandoed, the PS can come either boxed 400 rounds per can or 384 rounds clipped and bandoed. There are a few lots that were problematic. Never had a problem with any I shot.
