Ammo Score

I scored some ammo at $4 a box. I got about 45 box, everything he had. Mixture between Federal, Winchester and Remington and 250rds of mil-surp ammo. I'm a happy camper since ammo around these parts is expensive ($9 per box of Tulammo) and brass runs $15 a box.

What kind of ammo scores you guys come across?

I'm in Alaska so shipping ammo or primers/powders is very expensive and isn't cost effective. Cheapest ammo I found was MKE stamped mil-surp at a guns shop $115 for 300rds ($7.60p Box) and he sold out quick.

The local gunship here has wolf. 308 priced at 24.99 for a 20 roundbox. I am going to tell the owner when I go back in Cu's sometimes I actually buy it (for 8$) but luckily they have roadway green 75 round bandoliers for 35.99

The surplus ammo I got is Stamped RG with NATO Cross. Did some research it's Radway Green made in England.

Idk how some shops charge outrageous prices for ammo, sad thing is some people still buy it.

RG is good stuff... it's my primary surplus stash.

Ammo prices these days is sort of a self-fulfiling phrophesy... it seems like some people see the high price, get scared that it will go even higher... and happily pull out their wallet; when, if they did a little research, they could find it cheaper elsewhere. Gunshows foster much of this, IMHO, and retailers like CTD. Just my .02 worth.

I just checked and some of it is stamped "OFV m80 73". Quick google search said this is Indian stuff and is best from the 70's.
Manufactured by our old friend Royal Ordnance of Indian, or you could have looked at the Sticky above and seen it as well 3s1k.DI5
