    Gov buying all overuns?

    I read a news article today that stated that the government was going to buy all overruns on .223, .308,.45,and 9mm. I can not find the article again but have noticed that some of the ammo suppliers are short on .223. Anyone else read this or have any input?

    Yeh, but what they're NOT telling you is that the Government is ALSO buying up ALL of the tinfoil hats! Better stock up now, or learn to make your own!

    Better get out the foil hats. Seriously, this is an unfounded rumor unless someone can come up with a legit source for the story. Remember, just because you read it does not make it true.

    It's legit. Anonymous Source says so.

    Local version of gander mountain has 2 pallets of xm855 (.223 for those of you without the disease) so I'm not buying that story in the slightest.
