Group buy ammo and mags (ar15)?

Anyone interested in a group buy? I havent sourced a place yet for either but just wondering if anyone wants to go in and do a group buy. Im looking to get 10 30rd mags and a good 500 rounds of 223.

I have 10 mags for my one and only AR. I don't see why I would need more but I might go in on an ammo buy.

I'd be in if it was 7.62, and some 40 round Bulgarians.

Wolf is the cheapest...like always. What are you guys looking for ammo wise? We have to agree on one type.

If you guys know of any good suppliers with ammo in stock, let me know.

I would be down for some wolf, I also would like some 5.56 though.

I have a buddy that brings all kinds of Mil gear home for me.

The last group buy I went in on ammo we had to order more than a pallet to get a discount. A pallet is 70 1K cases, that should be the goal. I would be in for 5K or so if others can fill the rest. Also C products has mags all day 12 bucks each, new in wrapper. They were one of the very, very few who did not jack up the prices after the election.

I need a high capacity mag or two for my Glock, and .40 ammo, or is this becoming the AR forum now?

I did a 1 man group buy from C-Products for mags a few weeks before the election. Should have them up for sale in about a year or two.

How much was the discount? If we have to buy a pallet...Im probably out. Thats way to much to have to buy and divide up. I needed 500-1000 rounds..

Thanks for the link...I contacted them about mags. If they dont do group buys, I will probably just end up ordering a few for me.

I need military surplus 7.62x51 NATO, the commercial rounds are grenades in my guns unfortunately. It was expensive before the messiah, but now it's just ridiculous.

I'm not sure where the brass goes. I know there's no .223 or .308 brass because our range is a pistol range only except for the SRTA rounds, and that is some dirty crap. I don't even know if it is reloadable...

I would be down for some .223, maybe 2-3k rounds depending on price.

Never wrap it up, never pull out. Just grind up the morning after pill in her scrambled eggs at sunrise, she'll appreciate that you made her breakfast.

yeah I was firing you might have some .40 and .45 which I could certainly use, but normally police ranges have contracts with local reloaders for years.

Tell them to get someone different with better QC. The last few times I've qualified I had several rounds that wouldn't fit in my magazine!

When I did the group buy on ammo it was at least two years ago, so the times (and prices) have really changed. I think the group discount was like 15 percent and we got a small break on shipping.

The thing with the "president elect" has driven demand through the roof and price as well, as if you all cannot tell already by just looking at any prices on ammo.

If you can arrange a group buy I would suspect that the business you are wanting to set it up with will either not be able to get all the ammo or not be able to give a price break. Since the ammo is selling like the end of the world is coming and they can sell it for almost any crazy price they stick on it, look at CTD and that madness.

I am not trying to bring bad news but just think about when you try and get it rolling and the sellers are not wanting to work with you.

I remember buying Wolf ammo for 80 bucks a K delivered, now it is pointing at 300 a K plus shipping. That is just madness.
