I've used Cheaper Than Dirt for years, but now there is a slight problem with how they are doing business.
If you order say 5 different caliber ammunition these days they will ship it from 5 different warehouses, which drives costs up at an insane rate.
Though they do stock most calibers, and their price is lower than just about anybody, at $14.00 per warehouse for shipping, they are pricing
themselves out of the market.
Luckily I have good vendors in my area who carry just about every caliber I want, but I do have to order out for match grade ammo.
BTW, that cheap Russian ammo is actually some pretty good stuff, I've burned over 300 rounds of TulAmmo at the range, and have used TulAmmo in
As an aside, it would be prudent to stock up on ammunition in each caliber or bore you shoot.
The skuttlebutt is carrying tales of restricting ammunition purchases.
I would suggest keeping at least 2,000 rounds per caliber you shoot.
Another little thought...what if T.S.H.T.F. tomorrow...can you guess what would become a good currency for local exchange?
I'm thinking 22 rimfire would be better than fiat currency, and is a very good little round to keep on hand for those times you might need to take
small game (possibly in survival mode).
Another light ammo would be whatever your pellet rifle shoots. I have a 177 pellet gun that shoots at over 1,300FPS, and is a tack driver, it would be
handy for taking small game and birds should the need arise.
Some people laugh at the idea of a pellet gun being a good fall back piece, but don't laugh too hard, during Revolutionary times the French had 50
caliber air rifles which were absolutely silent, and unquestionably deadly.
BTW another good thing about Cheaper Than Dirt, you can buy an AR15 upper and a stripped lower with a build kit, or an M4 lower (the ramps are a
Even though there are several places on the net to buy parts for building many different rifles, my advice is to stay away from select fire or full
auto weapons...full auto leads to a lot of "spray and pray" which just burns ammo and barrels, plus it takes one hell of a man to hump full packs and
enough ammo to feed a hungry automatic.
If you really want a full auto piece maybe you should pick off an invader who has one...work from the rear of the column with your crossbow, or your
Jibaroo blow gun...just dip your darts in Ricin (silent but oh so deadly) .
And don't you dare say I put you up to it.
