All of a sudden those barrels of 5.56 don’t look so ridiculous anymore.
I "almost" went and bought a 12,500 round steel drum full of M855... almost...
3 boxes 22-250, 5 boxes 358win
I've seen pallets before but where the hell do you buy a drum full of ammo???
Not long ago, a lot of online sights sold 5.56 that way.
I just received 1000 rounds of CCI Blazer 124gr 9mm FMJ from Target Sports for $.55 per round with free shipping. I logged on and saw that they had 15 cases in stock and couldn't resist. I keep telling myself that I'm good to go, but I keep ordering when I see it. I think I really am good to go, now. No more 9mm orders. I mean it this time.
Thanks O.O because I had forgotten!
@Visper Woulda, Coulda, SHOULDA!!!
That is easily worth $12,500 now
Most ignored the barrels cause they thought ammo supply would never end at cheap prices. Some barrels had well over 13,000 rounds in them as of just last year alone. But I did not ignore them. So Mole, I have perhaps more 5.56 ammo than you ever thought I did.
My biggest parcel was the 2000 round boxes...
I almost impulse bought one of those barrels (from SG Ammo if memory serves), but fear of SWMBO stopped me. When I look at the trouble I'm having storing what I already have, I'm glad I didn't buy one. It would still be cool to have one, though.
Easy to store! Just place the barrel on a smaller wood pallet in the garage. But, I dunno about down there in Florida. Heat, Humidity, and Swaga. Could be problem I suppose.
No tengo garaje. But, yeah, in Florida, humidity and heat can have a bad effect on ammo. You really have to keep it in a climate controlled environment.
And Swaga away from it. @SWAGA
Don't Poke the Bear
Damn, missed that one >.>
I think my wife would kill me if I had a drum of ammo delivered...
Nah, YOU own TOO MANY GUNS!
Rimfire is more susceptible than centerfire. Your Daisy "Seal-a-meal" machine is a good idea if you don't have excellent humidity control.
The weather is getting cooler. Dad's M-1 Garand is going to shoot some Lake City 1940 vintage ammo sealed in the original cans. It was stored for part of it's life in a "storm cellar" which frequently had standing water on the floor. I have opened 2 cans. I was hard to break the seal. It looks brand new.
I have a good bit of that surplus 7.62 NATO in the sealed pouches, and who knows how it's been stored. Any I've ever opened has looked and worked well. The sealed method really is good to use.
I had some CCI Stingers for my only 2 guns at the time when I lived in Florida. What little I had was "stored" in my truck behind the seat with my range bag when I lived there. Moved to TN in 1995. I shot it all in 2013. No problems. I may have got lucky.
