    I cannot for the life of me find any 5.56 62g ammo on the internet anymore. If anyone knows a place that's not sold out please point me in the right direction.

    And you won't for several months. Supply and demand.
    Everyone is in panic mode.

    I saw one young fella at the police supply house buy 1,500 rounds of 7.62X51 FMJ M80 ball for his bolt action M700.:confused::confused::confused::confused::confused:

    Use M193 ball for now. Your 1/7 twist will shoot 55 grainers just fine. :)

    I just got back from an lgs and they are going nuts. There are no AR's or AK's available from his suppliers and he is sold out except for a very high end Arsenal. I have heard of people asking $2k for Colt AR's.

    Isn't this why there is something called "reloading?"

    That's right hush...reloading is most wasteful and too dangerous! Should never be attempted :) leave it to us professionals

    A local guy has 223 ammo and is selling it for $650 thatis cheaper than it is going for on gun broker. It is a good brass cased ammo. He said he will ship it. His number is 814-594-4204 give him a try.

    I think the supply of ammo will catch up with demand way before guns and accessories do.
