Only thing currently avaialbe in any kind of quantity is S.A. 7.62X51. Check Turners, Ammo Bros., AIM surplus, Outdoors Marksman.

Check here to keep up on prices-
Best Prices 7.62 on the Net (http://rifle-company.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=431)

But pretty much it's AIM at just under .18/round

I've got approx. 400 rds of the following for sale

I picked up 500rds from
at $199 for - 500rds delivered and I decided I'd rather shoot match
ammo out of my Rem700PSS.

I'll sell my 400+rds for a good price <edited to comply with no for sale rule>
Drop me a line if you are interested.

I've got something like 350 rounds of IMI match 308 ammo if anyone is interested.

There is a lot of US made M118LR "PD" surplus out there. Out of my M1A national match it's been grouping at 1 MOA or less. Too bad there is no more Aussie F4 for sale. But the M118LRPD has been performing very well.

all the aussie is gone bc its in my garage.... crates that havent seen the light for ages.... but its not for sale... unless you want to pay me vast amounts of $$ for it...

i've got about 960 rnds of aussie and 120 of port.. soooo sad... but SA i've got a case left. prices have gone through the roof!

I'm just looking for some cheap stuff to run through my 1919, running match or lake city would be a waste of good ammo.

buy the cheap Indian surplus. The 1919 can definitely handle that ammo. It will be cheaper as most people avoid that stuff.

Depends on the vintage.

And the 1919 is overbuilt for a 308. That's why I suggested it. Now if we were talking about a lightweight auto...that's a different story.

I dont like the indian for the 1919. It has to be sorted because on many their base is too thick to fit the t slot.

Pakistani, if you can find it was much much better.

Better buy your ammo now because AIMS is jacking up their prices. http://www.aimsurplus.com/acatalog/Ammunition_Price_Increase.html :mad:

Anyone in the bay area want to order a case of SA and split the shipping cost.

08-18-2006, 8:03 PM
the best place I have found ammo for the 1919 is from Southernammo (http://www.southernammo.com/products/products.htm) but they are out of stock.

Man....I started looking to restock my ammo supply and prices look to be almost 50% more than they were 6 months ago. Even Wolf has gone up that much....I used to buy wolf .223 and 7.62x39 for $100-$110 per 1000.
Now it's like $160...

Man...what happened? I can see the surplus supply drying up and making prices higher...but wolf?

Looks like the 308 SA may be your best bet for decent ammo.

just keep your eyes peeled last case (1000rnds) of 05 lc i got for 223 shipped. deals are few and far between but they do pop up. SA isnt bad stuff i shoot alot of it in my socom scout and standard m1a's. paki is ok but pretty dirty. still got a few thou of port stashed. best advise i can give is when its cheap buy as much as possible and set aside some for when the prices are high. and remember ammo stored is money in the bank. i know i have traded lots of ammo for parts and vise versa.
