I'm only able to buy this by the box, and I have to drive 5 hours (round trip) to get it, and the shop won't mail it to me. I called them up yesterday, and they had about 40 boxes of it.
I doing this as a service to the people who need a few rounds to test fire their gun.
Like I said, I know where a very small amount it. If I can get some people interested I'll go get some. If not, I'm just going to be buying a little for myself, as I don't have the funds to go blowing my wad on ammo for a gun I don't even have (built) yet.
I've searched all over and this is the only ammo I've found.
IF some people want some, I'll be calling the shop and paying/reserving some with my credit card, untill I can go get it in a few days.
I was so desperate for 5.45, I ordered some BLANKS from sportsman's guide last week, cause that was all I could find.
After taking out the price of the ammo, and gas money, and time spent driving, I'm not "making out like a bandit" on this, just to go get a few boxes of ammo.
So, no this isn't a joke.
people pay more than that at walmart for a box of 30-06 shells.
