I'm sure you wont have any trouble finding some at your next local gun show for about a $1 a round.

8mm ran out, now 7.62x39 is scarce, bought a crap load of 8mm hoping 7.62x39 would still be around after. It will probably all come back to semi normal in 6 months or so.

I went to the states largest gunshow 29 & 30. You could always count on large ammo retailers showing up with tons of ammo. This time most did not show. The dealers who had 223 & AK ammo wanted $1 per round.
I went to the show the following day and much of this ammo was gone.

I can only hope people react by writting their elected officials to defend 2Amend rights. I sure did.

$1 per round Wait a few months I ordered some 7.62x39 1,000 rounds for 285 total. Yes I know not super great but decent for this day and age, I will hopefully get it in month or so. However, it is obviously better then 1 dollar a round... They are trying, or apparently succeeded, to make quick cash out of worried and desperate people.

If one does not or cannot provide information where to buy ammo, then don't post at all.

The gripe-fest is getting old....Board-wide.
If it were up to me, the word "got" would be deleted from the English language.

Posting and YOU:
