    I don't have any 308, but the Ruger Gunsite and Springfield M1A are both in the top 4 of guns I want to get next.

    I was just curious if anyone remembers what the going rate for 308 ammo was before the market went crazy. Assuming the market returns to normal in a year or 2, I want to figure out how much it'll cost me to get into a new caliber.

    Post Obama, when you weren't being gouged, but pre-Sandy Hook it was possible to buy some surplus and Russian .308 for mid-upper $0.30's per round and other surplus and new brass ammo between low $0.50's but up to almost $1.00/round if you were buying U.S. made match ammo.

    Before Obama everything, everywhere, was all a level less expensive of course and it's going to continue to get worse across the board...

    Off topic, but I noticed the OP's signature. Why would anyone want to post a list of of all the firearms they own on Facebook? That's like giving a burlar a shopping list.

    Since I'm stationed in CA, I stored half my guns out of state. I miss my AR-15.

    ...and if anyone wants to stop by my house for a burglary, I pass out free bullets 24/7 for the occassion. :rolleyes:
