I'm looking for some recommendations about what is the cheaper caliber to shoot? It seems like 7.62 is harder to come by and is more expensive in South Atlanta. Is it the same everywhere, or is it just the post election rush? Also, has 7.62 always been more expensive than 5.56/.223 or is it a recent phenomenon.
The reason I as is that I'm considering selling an SKS that my father gave me and replacing with an AR-15. Which would be cheaper in the long run?
