    I'm not trying induce panic, however WOLF just announced that their orders "may" be delayed do to US involvement in inhibiting the flow of Russian product to the US. Russian ammo is currently plentiful, if you rely heavily on it to have your shooting pleasure it may be time to buy what you need.

    I took delivery of 1k Wolf 7.62 Soviet last week in anticipation of these news.

    Trying to remember if I have 3,000 or 4,000 rds of 7.62 now. Guess I better order another 1,000 rds before the SHTF or imports are shut down.

    On edit, I did order another 1,000 rds tonight. Glad I have the SIG556R to shoot them with.

    I now have more 7.62 than 22LR!

    What does Wolf (or any ammunition manufacturer) have to gain by using scare tactics to drum up business? Quite a lot.

    Buy intelligently, people. We've been down this road 12 months ago. Scare tactics drummed up business after Sandy Hook and cases of 7.62x39 shot up by $100 per.

    If you need some ammunition to shoot out of your rifle, buy some. If you're afraid 7.62x39 will become scarce and want to panic-buy a case, you're part of the problem.

    I guess that would be a good idea, when I get the AK out several hundred rounds just disappear every time. Too much fun to shoot.

    I personally don't have an issue with people anticipating a shortage. I would have issue with companies creating an allusion of a shortage.

    If you're buying anything in a reactionary manner, you're behind the curve. It's true for guns, ammo, gold, stocks, whatever. Someone is playing a game of chess and you're the pawn.

    I have nothing but respect for people who stock up on a commodity when it's plentiful and inexpensive.

    I first read about this on The Bang Switch, and so far it's entirely rumor-mongering:
    Translation: Wolf doesn't know if shipments are delayed, Russia has not stopped shipments of ammo out of the country, but they maybe might possibly be perhaps, so buy now!

    wouldn't you say right now it's plentiful and inexpensive? I see it all over and for relatively cheap.

    No need to freak out. We've imported cheap 7.62x39 from quite a few other countries other than Russia in the past. Some of the most recent cheap bulk shipments of 7.62x39 have come from Romania (Red Army Standard).
