About 1500 .223 rounds, 4000 7.62, and 1000 .22LR


Counting the 1000 7.62 I'm offloading tomorrow



Not too shabby. I've gone through 3040 .223 rounds and 200 9mm rounds. I have 1000 9mm on the way that I'll probably keep along with 500 more .223 rounds that I'll sell. Plus some magazines

Is there still good profit to be made?


Yes, in my experience. No problem moving mags in LC for 50% profit or more.

I haven't gotten my hands on any other than the initial 10 from DSG. I placed another order 2 days after my original order and still haven't gotten those.

I moved the 10 pmags ($100) on gunbroker and got $500. That was at or near the Pmag peak. There is still a good market for them on gunbroker, but then price is now around 35-40 each.

I just canceled my pending order of 20 stainless mags b/c the market for those seeem to be bare

.223 is the biggest money maker. I've started to back off from .223 to just focus on 7.62/9mm/.22LR. I want to lessen my risk so I am now mainly just dealing with calibers in which I own a weapon in- so the ammo won't go to waste if I can't sell it.

I'll pull the trigger if I can get a box or case under $0.30/round. Gotta be patient, but the past two weeks, I've been able to monitor the sites to get two 1000 round cases for under $275 shipped

DrTyger

Are they getting random shipments of AR's? I feel like they are getting more than the Veterans one. I should go to the Harahan one more the people at the Veterans Academy have lied to me before.

re: OFFICIAL Academy Reports/ Online Ammo Deals & Availability


I was gonna back off but I have like 4 buyers who want 223 so I'm gonna keep going til I take care of them. Those sells should put even on what I spent on my AR plus some. If I get stuck with a case then oh well. The mags are gonna be a nice profit too but once I get 2 confirmed shipments of pmag I'm gonna stop that too. Wanna get cleared out with 10 for me before the bubble bursts.

And then I am signed up for In Stock email alerts on a shitload of websites.

There is also a great thread on AR15.com that they are keeping track on in stock .223.

Pmags are starting to come back in stock, so that one probably won't last too much longer.

I see the ammo bubble coming and going for the next few months. There will be days that you can find plenty of ammo, and there will be days you can't find a damn thing. Probably will start to smooth out after the summer.

From what I can gather that's what's going on. They don't know what they're getting in shipments they just know they're getting them so no telling who is going to get what.

The Clearview one has definitely had more stuff than the vets one though.

Heard that. I have a family member who had plenty of money but she gets a thrill out of buying shite for $5 at a garage sale and selling it on eBay for $10.


You'll be able to buy/build you a sweet AR with that profit.
