    Barnaul. Cheap, but shoots like crap and causes accelerated barrel wear

    50-55 a box is still a buck a round. You can reload for a fucking sight cheaper. NZ public getting fucked over again.

    Eh . That same ammo retails in the states for @$40 us which is @46 nz Once you add in freight/import dutys/gst etc etc selling them for $50 nz is fairly competitive. Getting the bulk mil surp stuff is nearly impossible these days with the US market still being gaga over ammo.

    Reloading will be cheaper but many people I talk to and sell to have either no time or inclination to reload .

    Reloading is bugger all cheaper, brass and bullets cost a fucking fortune. Can't reload for the price I paid for Hornady steel cased training ammo.

    The states are also in the midst of panic buying. All their guns and ammo has gone through the roof.

    Is there a chance that all this panic in the states will calm down? Or will it only get worse?

    I'm starting to see 55gr winchester SPs in the 40 rnd bulk packs again so there must be a lul in the American ammo craze. Hopefully NZ will be able to benefit a bit as well.

    As far as I'm aware the panic is long over. But it's legacy is years of back ordered ammunition.
