Jimro, Yes the games in the sandbox will wind down one day, but none of the surplus ammo will be demilled to make components available to us. According to what I have read from several sources, Clinton changed the rules after the Talon debacle and all surplus ammo now is burned/blown up and not allowed to be demilled. Hopefully CMP will get some of it to sell but I wouldn't hold my breath waiting for components.

I understand there are small lots of LC ammo demilled by the government contractor if it doesn't meet their requirements, but the large-scale quantities of powder and bullets I believe are a thing of the past. I hope I'm wrong about this.
