Hopefully the new ("Old") "SSA" in the making... but, bigger/better.
I need to buy some more mags for my banshee. Thats my primary SHTF gun. My 6.8 is the survival/ nreach out and touch someone gun. Banshee is good for 100 yards or so and gives me ammo interchangeably with my XDmI 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."
I just picked up 100 rounds of 120 SST from Dick’s. It was $21.97 per box. About $1.10 per round. I don’t normally shop there but I was getting my hunting license. They had quite a selection of Hornady on the shelves in several different calibers. Unfortunately they only had the 5 boxes of the 6.8 or else I would’ve grabbed more.Just looked on Gun Broker, 78 rounds of 120 SST has a bid of $130 on it. Tha's about $1.67 a round.
The Herd of Sheeple will continue to stampede until their credit cards are maxed out and the wife finds out.Not even close to a record: PMC 223 Rem Ammunition Bronze PMC223A 55 Grain Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail Case of 1000 Rounds
If people would calm down and stop paying those prices then the price would come back down.
Crazy! Reloaders are a little better off than those buying loaded. I'm pretty stocked, but most components except for primers are readily available in my area or online. I ordered 200 Starline .270 win brass from midway on sale and picked up a pound of h322 and 200 140 gr hornady interlock btsp yesterday at bass pro at their normal high prices.

Everything is getting scarce. I stopped doing break in on my new pistol cause I don't want to waste the ammo. I got 300 of the 500 recommended rounds thru it. Just cant find bullets for it. I have powder, brass and primers. Never thought it would be hard to find 10mm bullets.Thats funny. Try buying Hornady .224 BTSP, I know you may no be looking but they've been out of stock EVERYWHERE for 2 months.
True enough. I currently only load 6.8 spc and 270 win. I purchase 6.8 spc weight bullets directly from speer and .270 win weight hornady btsp have been easy enough to find locally. Primers though, they're scarce.Thats funny. Try buying Hornady .224 BTSP, I know you may no be looking but they've been out of stock EVERYWHERE for 2 months.
Last I checked cavity back had bullets. Haven't foud CCI 41's but ive found BR-4S lately.True enough. I currently only load 6.8 spc and 270 win.

Alot of people are realizing that the gobment wont or literary cant protect them. So there are alot of people with guns that barely know which way to point the thing. As far as people arming up. All I can say is good luck. We have been fighting a guerrilla war for damn near 20 years now. There are lots of retired / discharged vets out there now.With gun sales at record highs along with the Ammo sales and the news showing left wing radicals with weapons and even shooting up cops with an alk pistol and other black rifles makes me think who is exactly arming up here....
Is it the guys like us who already have a lifetime to stuff or is it the commies just realizing the only way to really turn this country into commie land is the ability to take it by force.
How many (new) gun owner sales have you herd about, that’s mostly what I’m hearing about. People so new and clueless that they buy a glock 45 only to return back and tell the salesman that the the gun won’t work. Salesman says put the right ammunition in it and it works fine.
I been through a few shortages and panic buys to say the least but this one feels different in terms of who exactly is arming up .
