Las Vegas is pretty liberal when it comes to owning firearms. Our new sheriff was my old Captian when I was briefly with LVMPD.

Turboguy, you gave out the ammoman.com web site a couple of weeks ago, have you bought on line from them before?  How do you rate them?  I was thinking on getting some Wolf .223 ammo for my m4, have you shot that thru yours and was it real dirty?  Ammoman definetly has some cheap 7.62 and I like the fact that they have free shipping

Yeah man, I buy from them quite a bit.
 
I just picked up 2000 rds of .223 Silver Bear from AIM Surplus today. 500/$112... This is the cheapest I've found it, and I really haven't seen ammo prices coming down, nor do I see them coming down anytime soon. At Ammunitionstore they just put the shipping costs into the price of their ammo.

Turboguy, have you shot any of that silver bear .223 yet?  I called AIM surplus yesterday and they were out of it, won't get any for a couple of weeks.  What do you think of it, is it clean to shoot?  I read some reviews of Wolf and a lot of people did not care for it in their M4's.  If you shot silver and like it I might try to get some.

Actually it wasn't too bad. Reasonably accurate, reasonable cleanliness. My only complaint is the primer sealant, but that good for long term storage, so it's fairly moot.

Anybody shot Sellier and Bellot .223 ammo?  Tell me what ya think.  Is $300 for 1000 rounds an okay price?

It's my favorite and I buy it every chance I get.
 
Mind letting me in on where you're seeing this advertized? I'll pick up a thousand of it too!
 
Most .223 is selling right around $250 - $350 per thousand. CDNN's got Federal for $350/1000. S&B was and still is my favorite. It's clean, extremely accurate, and seems to have the perfect powder for AR's. It's good stuff.

No store, just through a private sale.  I'm going to call the dude tomorrow and see if he still has it.

I think I got a good deal!  2000 rounds of Wolf 7.62 for $300 and 840 rounds of that Sellier and Bellot 5.56 for $235.  All still in the box.

You got a damn good deal!
 
I just picked up 3000 rounds of .308 for $600 yesterday from a guy at work that I dislike. He's gonna be ***sed when he figures out exactly what that ammo is worth.

Turboguy, how do you store your ammo?  I ran out of ammo cans and now I just store everything in the closet.  I guess I should buy a couple more large cans to store my recent purchase.

A few years ago i bought a pile of South African .308 and it came in huge waterpfoofed ammo cans. They're about twice the size of those .50 cal ammo cans many people use. I store my ammo that didn't originally come in a can in those and I've got a nice dry spot in my attic to put it. My house is very old so I'm afraid to put it in my basement.
 
Most of my 7.62x39 came in spam cans that need a can opener to get into. Those are reasonably protective of the ammo inside so they'd probably be safe anywhere I put them. The other stuff I've got three of those mega tupperware bins that I put the regular boxed stuff in, sorted by caliber. I got my hands on a couple cans of dessicant and put that in a jar with holes poked in the lids to eat up the moisture.
 
For my grab and go right now, I've got ten loaded 30 rounders for my M4 in three M16 magazine holders, and a Beta "C" drum magazine that's got 100 rounds.
