Those prices are not bad. My local Academy had 380 in stock for 14.99 a box. I am sure one guy came in there and bought all of it but it was still nice to see it.

It was like that back in 2001 or so. You could get brass cased .223 for under $100/1,000. I was buying 2,700 rounds South African .223 in reloadable brass case packaged in 300 battle packs for about $240. I still have about 15 of those 300 round battle packs in the bottom of my safe. I saw them going for $180 EACH at Cheaper Than Dirt last year.

Thats good to see. Hopefully they dont limit how much you can purchase/ the serialization like they were talking about. I need some rounds might have to check out some places and see what kind of deals I can get my hands on.

I remember in 01 just buying the pallets of ammo. Was much easier.

Especially with 8mm being $89 2k rnds and 7.62x51 being $110 1800 rounds.

I remember the 223 for 90 bucks. I bought alot of it but not as much as I should have. If I could find it that cheap again I would buy more of it. I tell the guys I work with about "the good old days" and some of them didn't know ammo was once cheap and plentiful.

I think David and I are the same age...so yes, he probably was.


My buddy was buying/building when I was in High School and .223 was $100/1000 rounds.

I remember cringing when I first saw AK's for $300, lol. If I'd known it'd be as bad as it is now, that's all I'd have bought my senior year of High School.

Give me a dollar.

I just reload and it saves me a lot of cash these days. Plus I feel I get better quality ammo doing it myself. Example, Each cartridge has exactly the same amount of powder in it, each bullet weights the same, etc...

Just takes me a little time to reload, but in the end I believe its worth it. PLUS I always have ammo, I don't have to worry about stores selling out of it.

Maybe one of these days I should reload a bunch of stuff that people want and sell it.

I'd love to get back into reloading, but I just don't have the time. With the youngest in baseball, the oldest in football/hockey and other honey-do/s I just don't have any time for it.

But when I do, I'm gonna get a nice Dillon RL650B and start cranking out the rounds!

When the "Most interesting man in the world" needs advice, he calls me.
