A Timely Reminder...

Stretch sends in a handy graphic for National Ammo Day, coming up fast on the 19th:

I hit the local Wal-Mart yesterday, and they were cleaned out of 9mm, 45 ACP, and .223 Remington. .40 S&W and .38 Special were left for pistol calibers (they also had lots of .44 Magnum and .25 ACP, go figure), and for rifle, it was exclusively hunting calibers - .30-06 and .30-30... I think it might be time to place an order - so it arrives in time for Ammo Day, natch!

Do your part - 100 rounds (or more) on the 19th!

That is all.

I bought early... 550 rounds of federal. 22lr 36 grain copper plated & 50 of cci quiet.

If finances permit, I'll get a spam can of Mosin Nagant fodder.

I've been thinking of doing dollar cost averaging (i.e. whatever I can get for $50 each payday) on my ammo purchases to stock up, but I probably should have started a year ago. About the only thing I feel like I have "enough" of is 7.62x54R and .40 S&W reloads. I need to focus on .22LR, 9x19mm, .380, and .223. I've got enough .45-70 components for a while, I just need the time to assemble them.

This year they should bumped it up to November 7th. Cher went early yesterday, before work, and cleaned out 2 different walmarts of all their .22lr. That concerns me the most, because I can reload damn near anything else and have been stockpiling reloading supplies for some time now.

Dave,
I agree with you on mosin fodder. I have two and a half cans but if my local shop has it for less than $80 I will get another. Never know when surplus will run out.

Got some 9mm and .308 today and the local wallmart was well stocked, only thing out was .223. . . = (

Got 9mm and .380 a week or so ago. . may need more .308. .. and .223 if I can find it next week or so. . .

Checked Wally World yesterday, ONE box of .45 between two stores, TWO boxes of 9mm left... no .223 or .308...

I have 100 rounds .40 S&W now. Need more. Lacking in 5.56mm and 7.62x39.

On the 19th I will do my part!

At this rate will there be any left by the 19th?
