Unfortunately, the supply has "dried up."

Fortunately, I stocked up on several thousand rounds when it was cheap and readily available.
Wise choice my friend...if it reappears we would like a heads up.

I have always enjoyed collecting and shooting old military rifles. I have always tried to keep at least 1-2k rds on hand. Been looking to stockpile some more ammo for future use. It is funny how all the .30 ammo has slowly dissappeared in the last 4yrs. Kind of like the price of gas 4yrs ago was an average of $1.80 now it is $3.70.

I wish I was, I have not been that way in over 20yrs. That is a very beautiful part of the country.

The decent surplus ammo, the Australian, Portuguese, South African, British and German stuff has beed dried up for a couple of years. I bought some of this ammo when it was available and cheap and still have it. I am glad I hung onto it. I have been shooting mostly the Winchester white box stuff and my loads. I think ammo is going to become a precious commodity.
