    They make really good ammo, used to shoot there oo buck in combat matches when it sold for $55 for 200 rounds. Great ammo.

    3 or 4 more "accidents" like that one; there will be another run on ammo....and more threads about the people who are caught off-guard :s0046:and complaining about the people who are "buying-up all the ammo".

    NDAA gives the govt. the power to take over the remaining plants; indefinately.:s0068:

    Ammo prices started rising over ten years ago before any of us ever even heard of Obama. I noticed the 9mm 100 round bulk packs at Wally World go from 10.00 to 11.00 to 12.00 and decided back then to start stocking up to fight inflation. Glad I did. Currently ammo prices have come down some when on sale. Time to stock up again before something sets off the next panic buying round.
    Same applies to firearms. AR's are available at low prices right now. If Clinton get elected, there will be another panic buying binge when she trys to ban them. If you are thinking of getting another one, now is the time to go for it.

    I almost hate to say it but ammo prices did not go up the value of the dollar went down.

    I like S&B's various flavors of Mauser ammo. Oh well, hope they rebuild.

    Even if they only supply 5% of our ammo it will take longer to refill the store shelves.

    My personal favorite are the threads where people admonish everyone for buying ammo "they don't need" and causing the prices to remain high and supply low.

    People are funny, so far we have seen government is going back to 9mm and now a huge ammo plant blows up. Somebody is going to come along whining about "why is 9mm so expensive":confused:.

    The uninformed whine the most:D...

    Despite the truth behind my above post I find that I've been remiss (read lazy and cheap) in my own ammo purchases! I've been meaning to get a small stock of S&B 6.5X52R (.25-35WIN) for my moms old M-94 Winchester.

    OH DEAR! WHINE, WHINE! ITS THOSE DIRTY HOARDERS FAULT! THE CIA BURNED THE MUNITIONS PLANT ON AN EXECUTIVE ORDER! OHHHH WHINE, SOB!:rolleyes:

    Obviously the FBI is buying up all the ammo. ;) Hoarders never buy all they can get and screw everyone else over. ;)

    The whiners should read the childhood story "The 3 Little Pigs" (no pun Jim)...especially the pages where the two lazy pigs come begging the hard working pig for shelter.
