The local shop here sells the surplus stuff for $.30 a round, or $7.00 for a 20 round bundle. I still have 2 spam cans unopened, and half of one thar is opened. Most of what I shoot are hand loads.
No matter how many times you do it and nothing happens it only takes something going wrong one time to kill you.

I'm feeling like 1968 all over again, and those days were horrible. I'm mad enough to spit nails.

it all depends on where you live for 54r surplus. where i live, i have a gunstore,big chain mind you, that bought 3 cans of 1954 milsurp 54r. they sell individual packets for 6 dollars each. not tooooo bad but. if you want an entire spam can, you pay 63 cents per round plus tax.

and theres a real gunstore that will order anything 54r for you. provided you pay a dollar a round, even if you want to get that 99 dollar spam can from aim surplus. even new production ammo is the same. buck a round plus a special order fee thats never defined.

Even if the judge did sign off on the warrant, any resulting conviction would eventually be tossed out on appeal -

That would be of little comfort to the individual who's life was wrecked in the meantime ..... and was lucky enough to not have been found to have violated some other law along the way, considering that the huge volume of laws out there.
If a search warrant is thrown out, would not then any evidence obtained with said warrant also become inadmissable? Also, if the police were to illegally search your home and "ruin your life" when there was no evidence that a crime was comitted, couldn't you sue afterward to recoup at least some of your losses?

I received 880 rounds of Bulgarian last week from AIM. Cost me a little over $150.

My LGS has a whole stack of boxes of 880 rounds for $179 each.
I don't always go to the range, but when I do, I prefer dosAKs.

They say 5 out of 4 people are bad at math, but what do I know?

7.62X54R ammo

I was in a small shop in rural Pa. today. They had spam cans of 7.62X54R for sale. It was $199.00 for 440 rounds. Outrageous!

And, of course, you have the "tin foil hat" crowd claiming that government is buying up all the ammo for an impending declaration of martial law, along with FEMA "relocation camps," etc.

I think this thread ran it's course back in February... now it's just asking to be closed.
