    Most of it will probably be okay, but when you read the small print it's surplus ammo from the 1980s. I'll pass, you can have my share.

    $0.10 per round, plus you pay shipping? I'll sell every .22 round I can dig up for that price. How much can you carry?

    Man. It's going to be really nice when I can actually take my .22 out again and just blast to my heart's content. These days....

    Last 500-round brick of .22LRs that I bought was around $7-8. My .22s can just collect dust at that current ridiculously inflated price.
    When you fill out your income tax forms at the end of the year, look and see how much money you have given the government throughout the year. Then, take a moment to ponder -- has the government done $X worth of stuff FOR you or TO you this year? I tend to believe the latter...

    Uh you know it states that the whole box could be bad right?? It states bad primers and dud rounds are to be expect ...Plus if you read the AZ foroum people are not ext fans of them ( ie they photocopy your ID for ammo sales in store even though that is not legally needed )

    I imagine that the ammo will be fine, I am still shooting stuff of all calibers from the 60's.
    if you see some of the runs of 22lr coming off the shelf this past year, you would think the quality control crew would consist of Helen Keller & Stevie Wonder. I have bought bricks from the major manufacturers that had bullets loose in the bottom, never mind the poorly crimped ones. I actually looked at some of my older 22 or and you can tell a big difference.

    That being said, for those of you who need it.... Get it. You never know when it's going to be your last chance.
    For those of us who have some stocked, that's kind of a high price. Supply & Demand will always dictate prices.

    "his is new old stock ammunition (mostly 1980's production) and as with all older ammunition some duds and/or misfires can be expected, and the ammo may no longer perform to original specifications, including velocity, ignition, feeding, and extraction"

    IE if you get a box o dud we told you so ... Worry here is s&b made mil issue ammo .. So if this like the last batch I saw that was mil issue .. The worry is how was it stored etc ...

    Yeeouch!

    30-year-old surplus .22's at $50 a brick PLUS shipping???

    I believe I'll let them keep their ammo, and I'll keep my money.

    Amen to that. I Still have boxes of .357 JHP's marked $5.95, so I have NO idea how many decades old they are. Also S&B is one of the oldest ammo manufactures in Europe. The warning is just to CYA.

    Sometimes, you guys really confuse me.

    "I remember paying $2.50 for a brick of 500."

    Well I don't think those good ol' days are going to come back anytime soon. You laid out big dollar for your firearms, and, if you don't have ammo for them, then you have attractive doorstops.

    So the real question is how much ammo should you have for each gun you own? I've seen different numbers tossed about. Some say 100, or 1,000, or 10,000. Whatever, you want enough for training and a TEOTWAWKI situation.

    Once you have that on hand, then you can be picky about prices. For .22LR, the going rate appears to be between .08 and .20 per round. Got a box of .38spl today at .38 per. If you shoot one box, buy two. That's the rule and you continue this way until you have the supply you need. Then you can reminisce about those happy days of yore when ammo was plentiful and cheap.
