    Not sure but looking at their website, they may make big things that go boom...not so much small arms.

    I was quoting Forgeblast post that said ALL (civillian, military) plants combined were producing 1 Billion rounds per week. - quoted again next paragraph:

    "....AMMO: Every caliber is now Allocated! We are looking at a nation wide shortage of all calibers over the next 9 months. All plants are producing as much ammo as possible w/ of 1 BILLION rounds produced weekly. Most is military followed by L.E. and civilians are third in line."

    Then I was comparing the military use from Lake City. The article I posted was from military sources that said Lake City makes 99% of all small arms ammo for the Army - to the tune of 1.6 billion rounds per YEAR.

    Like I mentioned, Lake City is only two miles from my house. I know many many people who work there.

    Lake City is it for small arms ammo. http://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lake_...munition_Plant

It took everything I had to go in that place and now I just won't do it anymore. I do think that it's becoming clear Feinstein's bill would again cost Democrats their job thus the bill in its present form is dead and 22lr wasn't at risk anyway. Even if the panic subsides, there's a delay in any logistics pipeline.

    Lesson learned, though, and I'll be putting enough away so my grandchildren never have to buy a single round.
    Sensible man. I'm satisfied with a 5 year supply, and since I go to the range a lot, that's a LOT of ammo. It's always cheaper to buy ahead, anyway. I'm still shooting .308 that I paid $0.40 a round for. Yeah, that was the price just 5 years ago.

    Umm I have been buying .243 for 10 years or more and .30 06 for maybe 8+ years I never remember those prices. I even buy the cheapest shelf ammo when I did buy it. either rem Corlokt or Winchester powerpoints. I think the cheapest I remember was maybe $13-15 which is still over $0.50/round.

    The local sporting goods store got another shipment of Remington 525 packs today. They had about 24 cases/12 packs each of 525rds but you could only buy one 525rd pack per person. So some rimfire ammo is still moving through the system out there.

    That is good to know, maybe this nightmare will end soon... Oh by the way that store has more .22 rimfire than the whole states of Ar. and Mo. combined

    My son just picked up a 6.8 SPC upper today and he said the store had 9mm in stock in 500 round packs.

    Every time there is a news story about a guy with a "virtual arsenal" I cringe. He had a rifle a shotgun, two pistols and hundreds of rounds of ammo!

    What would they say about someone with eight rifles, six shotguns, twenty pistols and several thousands of rounds of ammo. Oh and the reloading supplies; thousands of empty cartridges, primers, projectiles and pounds of powder.

    This should be a lesson, call me a 70's survivalist, a 21st Century Prepper or plain old hoarder, I'm buying it for myself and my kids!

    Glad to hear you have a "starter kit" assembled .I have to laugh when some suburban commando talks about being ready for anything with a High point 9mm and a box of shells !
