Who else saw the 5.56 come and go?
I got an e-mail yesterday from ammoman.com at 6:02 a.m. saying that they had 2008 production M855 5.56mm rounds available for sale again. It was the Serbian stuff from Privi Partisan. So I followed the link, $499 delivered for a case of 1000 in 200 round battle packs, one case being the minimum order. I can live with that price because I like battle packs for long-term storage, so I bought a case at around 6:07. When I got home at 5:50 p.m., they were already sold out.
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” - Samuel Adams
