I've only trade two firearms, which was essentially one. It was my SKS for a Mossberg 590 and the the Mossberg for an AXIS.

$14.xx a box is insane. I can get a box of WWB .223 for just under ten bucks at my walmart down the road.

There is a shortage of 22LR ammo? No shortage in my neck of the woods. I still have ammo I bought a year ago when ammo was cheap.

ammo was cheap a year ago? Not on this planet. Changing the amount of a brick from 500 to 325 then raising the price to $19.95 isn't a deal. I still have cases of .22 that was $9.99 per brick of 500.

if you guys where to actually all band together and do a mass shipment of that much ammunition, I'd pay for a bottle of our finest stuff for everyone that pitched in. Haha
Would be a wild thing to do though......still owe Trip a bottle.

Basically enough ammunition to actually make the hassle of all the paper work reasonable. According to one company I was looking at, that's about a million rounds of ammunition, no idea if that was an actual thing or just their way of getting out of shipping south of the border.

I was at Bass Pro Shop and they had about 20 boxes with a limit of four per person. I grabbed two because I have a lot at home an figured i'd leave some for other people. As I walked by the ammo again I see a massive "A" hole grab literally ever box. Every friggen box. This retard didn't know there was a limit so he decides his ammo needs are more important than literally everyone else. This pissed me off so bad, be considerate people leave some ammo for others if you can. I think this is a huge reason why it is still hard to find.

That's one thing I haven't seen here yet, an ammunition limit. I've seen guys go into wal-mart and fill a shopping cart with value boxs of 12g shells. We don't normally have limits here at all.

I always got 550 in a brick. It was plentiful and given the amount everything else has gone up 19.00 is in line with inflation. I used to be able to get a brick of 10 fifty count boxes for $4 at a country store. I am sure someone can remember cheaper ammo deeper in the sticks.

By the way the same country store has 9mm Remington fifty count +p HP ammo for $40 today.
