Well, I was at the gun range, and a guy that I was talking to earlier came up to me with a box full of brass. 35 Remington which just happens that we have that pump in the family. Also, 30-0-6 which I don't think we have. I have over a hundred pieces of that if anybody is interested.

Academy Sports in Rock Hill SC had Winchester white box 22LR 525 count for $24 this morning. Maybe had 20 boxes. I bought 2 for a friend.
I also found a NIB Leupold 2-7X for $75 on clearance. Bought it, of course.

Just saw a box of (50) 9mm FMJs for $60 at a "discount" store. Box of (20) .223 PMC 55 FMJ for $25. The cheapest box of (50) 22 Rimfire was $20. It will be interesting to see how long this lasts.
Probably as long as someone is willing to pay it.

However, if the Socialists get their way the taxes they put on ammo will keep the prices at these and higher levels.

the usual pattern on panic buying is.....it's gonna last as long as there is a "threat" and as long as the public is willing to max out credit cards. would not expect prices and shortages to ease up till after the November election. if biden wins....it's gonna keep running for months.

Hate to say it, but this isnt going to normal anytime soon. Look at the election, when Trump wins, how to you think these rioters are going to react? I feel it may be spring to summer before things have some sort of normal feeling. About tired of this mask bs as well.

Kind of odd how all of the riots and looting started and people were wearing masks, then just as they were trying to pass laws to make wearing masks illegal Corona pops up and Dr Fauci tells everyone they must wear masks. Is it luck or a game plan that will stop at nothing?

When Trump no longer has to worry about winning an election, he will not need an invite from liberal governors to quelch riots.

As some else said, "When the shooting starts, the looting stops".

With an AG dedicated to enforcing the law, there will be repercussions for the organizers and finaciers of the riots.

If Trump loses (heaven help us), there will persecution of anyone who stands or stood in the way of the Marxist handlers of the Bozo Joe.

1000 rounds of M193 Hornady Frontier 55 grain 5.56 ammo has now reached $699.99
This has to be a new record. But August 2020 appears to be another record month of gun sales. That makes about 13.5 million new guns sold in 2020.

...they need to keep 1000 rounds and they only have 1 mag. ...
I chuckle every time I see something like this (not at you Nativeman30!). Once upon a time I had a team leader who wanted us to always have 1000rds, in mags, on us and our ruck. He got us the mags and 2ea SAW pouches (which would be attached to the outside of a large ALICE, each holds 7mags). One in the gun, 12 on the LBE, 14 on the ruck and 3, lol, "wherever you want."

His catchphrase for anything hard was "time to stack magazines..." We were like "you know it! cuz we sure ain't running anywhere quick."

1LT at the time but prior enlisted Ranger Bn and the SF team guy before commissioning. Eventually commanded a BN in 5th SFG IIRC. Actually a great guy and leader.

I find the panic buying and hoarding of 22lr and 9mm, curious and funny. If the SITF does happen, you aren't going to fight a war with them, despite the "Parabellum" on the box. I get the 1000 of 223/5.56 (the one mag is funny but true). That being said, I have a pile of 9mm I got a couple years ago when I was getting ready for a season of pistol competition that wrist surgery put an end to. I do have a camp9 that gives a bit more range.

I have far more 5.56 magazines than ammo to fill them. About 20 years ago, a friend needed bail money for his wife, so I loaned him the money, for collateral he gave me 60 30 rounders and a couple of shotguns. She skipped bail so I ended up with them. I've hung on to them all these years in case he ever wanted them back.

I had a bag full of 20 rounders several years back, gave them to a buddy of mine when I retired from the army, man I can really kick myself over and over again.

In other news, I just heard from my PSA dealer rep that they were in the process of buying out Remington's ammunition manufacturing facility. If all goes as planned PSA will be manufacturing their own ammo in the near future.
