    I confess I've just bought ammo from Cheaper Than Dirt......:(

    480 rounds of 'B grade' .303 British surplus ammo.
    Including shipping that is 25.3 cents/round.
    A little better then 75c/round for PPU or >>$1/round for anything else.
    Standby for range reports ;)

    I have been tempted to buy Tula 223 hp ammo from ctd. But after shipping and taxes (they are in Texas so I have to pay) it is only 2 cents a round cheaper, so I don't buy from them. By the way lizards are conductive. AC quit an hour ago and I found a lizard turned into carbon between the cap terminals. Remove the remains and it looks like the AC is working again.

    I bought 1000 rounds of Tula 7.62x39 from them for $215, last year. A good deal is a good deal, regardless of where it comes from.

    Their BS is still too fresh in my mind. I remember the $90 AR mags, the $70 boxes of 9mm, the $400 boxes of .22lr, and more recently the green tip .556 that doubled in price overnight when thr ATF talked about banning it.

    Basically if you want to buy off of scumbags that'd bend you over a barrel as soon as they'd look at ya then go right ahead. My cash will go toward companies that actually support gun owners vs those that will cancel orders, jack up prices, and almost assuredly screw us when it gets closer to the election and then the midterms soon after.

    Republicant rally, huh? You might as well tell him to go cheer a Dumacrat rally. If anyone wants to atone, a good, quiet reading and reflection upon the Constitution and The Federalist Papers is a good way to atone.

    After that, light candles before images of our Founding Fathers, and say a prayer in their memory--while kneeling on uncooked rice.

    Weren't you buying/building long range rifles in the last year?

    Anyway, 480 rounds will last me at least a year. Greek surplus with decent accuracy according to the reviews. Allegedly better then the Pakistani stuff.
    If found another website selling surplus including tracers but couldn't find them anymore.
    So yes.....CTD got my money once....

    Yes I was interested in buiding/buying a long range bolt rifle but I want to put money into my street/strip car I've got . Kinda lost interest in the gun hobby and right now really enjoying building my car
     
  16. I would expect that from anyone that is willing to turn guns in if the law changes.

    But hey, you weren't burned by them right? so why should you stick up for what good business practice?

    That's right. He can go listen to Jeb, et al, talk about how illegal immigration is an act of love.

    No reason to get mean about it LC.
    It's $0.25/round vs $1/round and yes, not everybody got burned. The hoarders did.
    I'll bet you buy 'made in China' too.
