I dug out some ammo in long-term storage over the weekend. Bought most of it in the late 80s.

3300 rounds of 5.56 -.223 of which (I had to google this) 1200 rounds are Canadian Military ivi C-77 with the nato cross on the headstamp , 62 grain steel core, copper jacket stuff that goes 3,000 FPS and is supposed to go thru barriers a bit better than most. In these weird plastic stripper clips of 10 rounds each, 600 rounds to a green metal ammo box. The rest is American Eagle 223, plastic wrapped.

2300 rounds of 7.62 X 39 steel case

560 rounds of 7.62 X 51 (308)

10,000 of CCI Mini Mag .22

500 rounds of .22 stinger.

Must have bought this stuff over several gun shows back in the day. I totally forgot about this stuff.

You can never have too much ammo.

May the Bridges I burn light the way.

Fewer people are killed with all rifles each year (323 in 2011) than with shotguns (356), hammers and clubs (496), and hands and feet (728).
