    Instead, I'd make a more balanced choice of 20k rounds each of .223, 12g, .308, .45 and .22 rounds.

    Well, in many states you could just mail order them. I assume CA you cannot. IL you cannot order over 1000 rounds or somethig stupid.
    Just drive to your local Cabelas, Bass Pro, etc and buy em.
    If you want deals, then go online to big distributors and order direct.

    Oh, and you would have a good investment.
    .223 is up to over 300 a thousand now for brass case stuff. Used to be 175 a 1000.
    5.45 x 39 is 300 a for 2080 rounds now. Used to be 150 for same amount.

    If I were do invest in 100K I'd buy .223, .22, and probably 9mm or 40 cal. (9mm is more common) Everyone has a .22 rifle.

    You guys know that Soros just bought a few ammo companies also right? That is another way they are going to start limiting the available ammo on the market in my opinion.

    Awesome, I was on that site before (months ago) and spent quite a time trying to find it with no luck.

    Right now I'm at $0.46/round for brass and on that site it's already ~$.07 cheaper. Thanks

    An investment is best placed in anything that is marketable and easily liquidated where a profit can be realized over the original cost.

    Ammunition falls directly into that category as well as about anything else as long as unrest exists, economies are in question and you have anything of value to protect. There are few stocks that have done as well as most all ammunition and firearms have done since the Kenyan took office. It's my believe that this will continue to be an excellent investment as long as liberals are in charge of lawmaking. I fear that we will see the time where an AR-15 and a stock of ammunition will be valued greater than a new Cadillac. It may be more than just a good investment.

    It depends on what you want to spend. I have an aimpoint and an eotech. I also have a few knockoffs of each. It is really hard to beat what barska sells for the money. They're selection is assume as well. If i was in afghanistan or iraq i'd definitely use the real thing. Being a regular sportsman i'd buy the barska products. Others opinions may differ though.
