And they stack well. Last show I was at there was a guy with nothing BUT amm cans. He offered me a deal I couldn't refuse on 4 well used linked 5.56mm machine gun ammo cans. They are quite bigger than even 50's and probably about all I could lift with one hand if they were actually filled without links. It was meant to be -- I had previously bought four of these which are good for .50 cal and my new old SAW ammo cans...

Great video and as others have said.....thank you for your service. My dad served in the Air Force and I have a tremendous respect for our military and those that have served.

With regards to ammo........Yes the guy in the video is right on the mark with people buying up ammo. I remember a few years back when .380 and 9mm was scarce after the election. One thing I would add though is you need to think about what your plans are.....in other words....bug in or bug out. Having an enormous amount of ammo is great.....but if you had to leave you can't take all that with you. If you are bugging in then it makes all the sense in the world. I am big on stocking up on .22lr ammo as it can be easily stored and is light enough to be transported.

Probably not armour piercing per se, no. A steel core is probably just "penetrating" and importable/salable.

Now about that pitiful quantity of .223...

personally i don't think you can have too much ammo. i only really stock what i don't reload and 22 and 17 rimfires. i keep plenty of powder, primers and bullets on hand for all my centerfire rifles and usually at least 100-250 cases for each on hand as well. i don't currently reload 9mm or 223 as usually i can buy both for as cheap as i could reload them for.

You are right about not saving money on the .223. But you can make much better ammo than you can buy for the same price. I reload 9mm. But I pour my own lead. So it is really cheap. I can reload 100 rounds of 9mm for less than $4.00

There is something else to be said about casting your own bullets. After the 2008 election I always had the range to myself. I was shooting every week or two. I almost never saw anyone else there.
