    My ammo purchase

    Despite ammo shortages and many calibers still being hard to find around Bama I lucked up and got a pretty good deal on some ammo here locally and just thought id show it off a little..
    200 rds PMC bronze 233
    380 rds Wolf .223
    200 rds Remington Thunderbolt .22
    325 rds Federal Auto match .22
    50 rds Federal Law enforcement holow poits 9mm

    I got it all for $150. I bet yall arent as excited as me but i felt like i made a good buy. Maybe this means some peolpe will start selling off there stockpile to create good deals for everyone.

    Sounds like a deal.

    Things are starting to break free it seems. But the market has ups and downs depending on school shootings and the like. Get it while you can.

    Good for you. I'm still wondering what to do when I run out of the good supply of 9mm that I have. Having to pay almost triple price hurts my soul. (Of course I will do that if I have to.............but I don't have to like it.....)

    All other calibers hubby reloads. He used to reload my 9's also but my Glocks do NOT like high primers at all and I had to put every single round on a mirror (guaranteed flat surface), and he got back 1/3 of them to take apart and redo. That was when we agreed to purchase my ammo.

    Bass Pro locally had the best selection I have seen since before the madness the other day. Only caliber they didn't have was 9mm, but they even had things like .44 magnum, 45LC, 10mm, .41 magnum and bricks of Winchester 22LR of which I relieved them of one.

    Only stuff I have been able to find in .22lr at a decent price is that thunderbolt. That is a good price for all of that ammo.

    "Outdated technology"??? Please let us know what's on the market that you think is better than an HST!

    Well looks like i found one fan of the Federal HST, my bad i got that confused with the older hydra shocks so i was preparing for some flaming with people saying that it was older technology and there are better self defense rounds available now. I now know there is a difference.

    Heck, I am happy to carry regular "old" Hydra-Shok 180 gr. in a 40 or 230 grain in a 45; if it worked 20 years ago, it still will.
