    Recomment good ammo for SHTF stash please.

    Something I can get bulk, under $400 / 1000. 55gr preferably. Also, something in sardine cans or sealed battle packs. Something that will last ages underground :evil:

    Thanks!

    Not a big SHTF worry type person but I'm kind of curious as I haven't ever seen 5.56/.223 in spam cans or battle packs. Have seen plenty of older ammo and com-bloc stuff in spam cans and lots of .308 in battle packs but the 5.56/.223 seems to just come in boxes. Am I missing something?

    PMC bronze .223

    it's 55gr FMJ-BT. Very accurate and cost-effective as far as brass goes. Hope you find some. You'll prolly have to get your own sardine cans, though.

    Good luck, with all the crazy buying going on right now you have to just buy what you can find.
