    That order alone though will drive up the effing price of ammo even more

    Up about 100 percent again in the last 6-8 months :mad:

    Started making my own again

    yeah that huge order is going to affect things for awhile.

    i bought enough ammo to last through a war.

    i used to reload shotgun shells when i shot trap. i never tried reloading bullets.

    Oh believe me, I know. When I grew up, my hometown was maybe 5% HISPANIC, 10% at most. My sister works for the school district, and she tells me the enrollment is nearly 60% messican now. As in no habla anglais, fresh from Chiapas, multiple IDs, etc.

    Rumor has it a number of large, "detention centers" are being built around the country, privately owned/operated, and subsidized by DHS... I have a funny feeling it ain't for the Mexicans, either...:whistle:

    It's all your imagination. Nothing to see here keep moving. Don't stop. Don't think.

    The contract itself said d&s and ice. Which I found odd as one is a part of the other and if it is only for ice then that's an insane amount. There are approx. 180,000 fte's in all of d&s as of 2010. This doesn't include contractors. But I will guess that not many carry a "field piece" That would be a huge # of bullets per person. I shoot regularly. That per person number would last me forever.
