Good week for me ammo wise. I'm still shooting 223/556 like it's going out of style, but I will tone it down since it's much harder to get and expensive. As for 5.45, that's a whole different story when I get my AK74 next week. Should be getting another 6k of 5.45 next month.

9K 5.45

1k PMC 5.56 green tip LAP

I haven't had any issues finding ammo, but I shoot unusual calibers. The specialty websites I usually order from are out of stock but I can go to most gun shops around here and find 9x18 and 10mm. Just not a lot of people use that.

Yep, I love my Glock 20C 10mm just for that, also with my 40 cal drop in barrel...I can usually find that also. First time I thought I would be lucky to have a 10mm ammo wise..ROFLOL!!!

IM shooting 99% 22LR, with a few 9mm with the Glock to stay sharp. If Im with my friend, I shoot his AR a little bit. 223 is still hard to come by for a reasonable price. Paid $12 for a 20 pack the other week....a bit steep me thinks.

Yup, hopefully the rest of my backorders will start shipping soon. But it was a good start.

Great day shooting today, took out 200 rounds of 9mm and 300 rounds of 22LR. Had to get some fun time in. I did make sure every round counted. Range was pretty much empty. Next time I schedule some range time....will be taking out the 8mm WWII German Mauser and maybe the AR to get the new Burris Fast Fire II sighted in.....most of my ammo is for the AK right now.

It's ridiculous around here. Tried to go this past Saturday, the two ranges I went to and the three that I called all had 2+ hour waits. Dropped in yesterday about 5 though and was wide open. Went through 150 rounds of ten mil.

I can get on the range for free, and generally don't have to wait long. It's nice having an RO as a personal friend.
