    I have not bought any ammo, except 25-06, which is brand new rifle I recently acquired.

    Our Wally has "tons" of 7mm ...damn, if I shot that, I think I would feel bad...or at least unloved!

    Having said that, after reading "no ammo" posts from time to time, my stomach tightens up, and I feel that panic... I have not bought yet, but a couple times I gave it a lot of thought.

    I am staying the course. I have made it this far...I'm good!

    A small gun shop 20 min. south of Memphis on I-55 has lots of it.
    Even with heaps of centerfire rifle ammo at home, and some on the way in about two months from the CMP, the impulse in a gun shop was felt today.
    The fairly new shop in Hernando MS has a wide variety, even .223, 5.45x39, 7.62x39, 8mm Prvi, 7.5 Swiss, Arg. 7.65 etc and H 380 powder.

    When I saw that 880 rds. of his x54R were listed for $200 (Bulgarian is considered very inaccurate)-far less than Ammoman's total for that quantity, I considered soon buying some x54R, even though I've Not Owned a MN rifle in over two years!

    If it weren't for the despicable actions of the UN (Obama signed the UN Treaty) to try to stop exports of ammo to the US, and the fact that the UN pays countries to destroy surplus ammo and guns, I would not have had a second thought of acquiring any fairly cheap surplus ammo not used by my guns.
