SGAmmo shipping out of OK is really quick for me.
I ordered Sunday and delivery is scheduled for Wednesday.

That's fast.

I should know better than to read this thread. Oh well, the rounds of 5.56 that my son and I shot this afternoon have been replaced a few times over. One case left.

ETA: The SGAmmo video at the link shows the ammo as made in Brazil. The stats pages shows up around 0:07 into the video. Still, if it is real M193 made to spec, it should be just fine.

Brazil? I should have paid closer attention.
Shooting test results are stellar though, so no regrets.

This looks like good ammo to pass on to my family.
Along with the other 30K rounds I guess. Eek

My name is ensigmatic and I'm an ammoholic.

Today I stopped by Walmart looking for some Perfecta .223 for test purposes. They didn't have that, but, they did have some Perfecta .380 ACP for 25% off. I don't shoot .380 ACP much. I really "have enough" on-hand. But, I could not turn this down, so I bought 100 rounds.

I went and looked over there.
They advertise they only carry USA made ammunition.

I was going to wait a few more months before I started hording again since we have the wonderful ammo ban coming Jan 1st 2018, but after seeing this thread resurrected, I just ordered a case of Magtech CBC 5.56mm from SG Ammo Wink

You only have a mild case.
Truly sick Ammoholics only buy in case lots and the word "enough" is not in their vocabulary.
But there still is hope. Smile

I suppose that's true, since there were four boxes on the shelf and I took only two of 'em Smile

Ah, I dunno. I'm mailing off for a 720-round "case" of Bosnian 7.62x39, and "for some reason" the fact that I'm not buying 1,000 rounds nags at me.

We need a truth in advertising campaign for "real cases".

And S&B needs to send us a few more shiploads, pronto.

I agree.
750 seems hollow compared with a 1000.
It reminds me of coffee sales... 12oz is a pound? Total BS.

SGAmmo shipments come fast to my address, check this out.
Ordered Sunday night.
Order processed for UPS Monday around 6PM.
It's Wednesday and it's on the truck out for delivery.

https://www.ups.com/WebTrackin...z_edatesent=07172017

While this shipment is heading for storage, I will pull 100 rounds just because.

My LGS is having a HUGE sale on Federal ammo. It is all I can do to keep from filling the truck. Minimags for 6.99 9mm 10.99 40 11.99 Help me. I think I saw .223 for under 6 a box.

If you're buying single cases, that sounds more like casual use than hoarding. Wink Besides, at SGammo you save on shipping if you buy cases in multiples of two. Just remember, "But honey, I was saving us money!" Big Grin

Seriously though, think about how long you expect to be stuck in this "communist paradise", how much ammunition you'd like to shoot each month, and how much of a margin of safety you'd like beyond that. After all the calculations are made, one thing is clear: you need more ammo.

Truly sick Ammoholics buy in multi-case lots, especially at SGammo, where you save on shipping when you buy in multiples of two cases. Just remember, "But honey, I was saving us money!" Big Grin

That sounds like a polite Ammoholic being considerate of others. Just because an Ammoholic usually buys in large quantities doesn't mean that they can never do a small "recreational" buy, and I certainly hope it doesn't mean that they can't be considerate.

One of the big online retailers (Grafs?) is having something of a blowout on Federal. Maybe more sales at more places are coming up? I could use some .45 HST.

Nothing wrong with them. When prices were high and things more scarce they were awesome. With prices lower, better deals can be found.
