    I personally hate S&M Guns on River Rd., but they do have bulk boxes of .223 ammo.. 200, 500 and 1000 rd. If someone is desperate or in need, they have it
    (marked up approriately).. I think the 1000 rd remington was $600.00 if memory serves.

    thnxs, but i would rather let my gun be empty than give S&M any of my business.. I went to river road bi-mart picked up a 100 round box of 5.56mm american eagle,( 36 dollars a box) a 400 round box of .22lr and a box of .45 a.c.p. at 2 pm yesterday. they still had quite a few boxes when i left.

    And so my gun sits empty for the this very reason, but I thought I'd post up the find just incase someone wanted to give that opinionated, should have been shot in the sheets tampax some of their money.

    RR bi-mart, as of today has no .223 available.

    Wow that's a tough one. But I'm with you. I'd probably do without before I gave S&M any of my money.

    As of 10:00 this morning, Junction City had 5.56 PMC (4 box max. per customer) in stock. I think he had 2 cases in his shopping cart that he had yet to put on the shelves(I took my 4 right out of his cart and seriously considered hijacking his unattended cart :))....


    I did get a brick of .22 high velocity remingtons out of his cart though and walked quickly to the checkout.....

    I live in JC and I have used SM for a few things, especially AA#9 powder since Cabelas doesn't carry it. I like a few guys in there, Cliff is great. I have heard a lot of bad stuff about them, and was just curious when it all happened? Or does it still go on? Other than the regular gun store BS that is constantly going on, but you get that at any location, what soured you on them? I'm not affiliated with them in anyway, just curious.

    As to the JC Bimart, it seems like everytime I go in there to buy components I get told "You understand this isn't ammo, right?" as I buy bullets and primers together, like I don't know that. Not a big deal, just kind of annoying. That and when I got my cougar tag there, the lady asked me with a sneer, "Do you have a lot of cougar problems in your area?" I said, "No, just want to kill one." She didn't seem to like that.

    With the cost of ammo being so high, it seems like a good time to get into reloading, not saying you don't, just info for anybody reading this:

    1000 once fired brass on Gunbroker - $200 or less
    1000 CCI 400 small rifle primers - $35 - $40
    1000 55 gr bullets from a lot of companies - $120 to $150
    3 lbs. of Ramshot TAC is enough for almost 900 rounds at 24grs a pop - $75
    Lee Pacesetter dies - $30
    Lee Precision Classic Turret Press Kit from Cabelas (Great Kit) - $230


    $725 to get started for 1000 rounds, and it gets considerably cheaper as you go. $290 per 1000 if you go 10 reloads on the brass. And thats with expensive components. It's the only way I could afford to shoot as much as I do.
