    Yeah aside from the fact that I've had bad luck with Blazer Brass in the past, I'm jealous too.

    Yes its fright on a pallet. I got them from cheaperthandirt at $3.59.a 20rd box.. Its .223 Ulyanovsk FMJ 55 Grain 20 Round Box Made in Russia 3241 fps Steel Cased Polymer Coated. I picked up 100 boxes a few weeks ago to try and all four of my AR15's eat them up like candy... It's my SHTF stash....

    I do hope your mortage is paid off and you don't owe on your car. If not, you're saving a few bucks on ammo while giving away thousands to the bank.

    Ever considered reloading? And, how much do you shoot a month?

    I have to disagree with many who have responded. You have a SERIOUS ammo problem. The only cure is to send me all of the 22lr and 45 auto that you have. You can keep the rest (for now).

    No, you have a storage problem.

    Let's see, 25,000 rounds of .223 at $.40 a round is.....................a big number!
    The UPS man must hate you!

    While we're on the subject, I've considered buying a cheap gun storage safe (like Sentry) just for ammo. I'd like the shelf space back in my gun safe.
    What do most folks use? I don't want ammo cans.

    You apparently have only one problem, and it's not your ammo problem. Once you've got it, you'll know what to do with it. Couple of years ago, I had boxes of ammo behind my canned goods in the cupboard. I'm doing better now.

    Well judging from the pictures I don't think it's an ammo problem, but when I read he has 25,000 more rounds of 223 coming, humm, maybe.
    I don't see a problem ordering in bulk from the internet to get a better price, and if you can afford to stock up, great. I do tend to laugh a little (someday I may be proven wrong) when someone says they want 50,000 rounds on hand in case of a Zombie invasion.
    I cannot imagine any scenario where one, two, or 50 people armed and holed up are going to hold off a horde of looters that numbers 5,000 or more (Assuming 5 misses and 5 hits per looter). I figure the looters will wise up after the first two or three hundred casualities and decide to go to the local national guard armory, steal a tank or a few RPG's to take out the defenders bunkers. If thats not an option they can just load a pickup with gas cans and tie the throttle wide open, drive it thru the house. In other words sooner or later they will own whats left of your ammo.
