Primers are really the sticking point, as with any Berdan case. They are not widely, or regularly, available

I have converted them to large rifle some work but it is doable. but when push comes to shove we will figure out how to reload and shoot. some boxer primed brass is available but i am to cheap to buy it. and yes berdan primers are just about impossible to find now as most were from Russia also.

Conversion is doable, and in small quantities, even practical, but it is a PIA. Oh I save all of my cases, steel and otherwise, but pretty much stick to brass for reloading, save for the 5.45, and even then, I'd rather spend the time converting 35. Rem cases than 5.45 steel ones..

Nothing to do until we get solid details. Until then, I'm buying what I can afford because if Tula AND Wolf are banned it will make post Sandy Hook look mild. Also buying .22 just because.

From what I gather from above, it’s less about what we interpret from the drafted sanctions and more about what the agents responsible for implementing the sanctions interpret from them. It’s how they’re enforced/put into practice. It’s cloudy, and we don’t know how federal agents will enforce them until they go into effect. I dipped into my ammo reserves last year and I’ve been building that back up since these rumors started floating.

Actually they stack very well. Never had any problems. A little less congested at other locations tho ... more spread out.

I stack em 4 high but after that maybe itís just a personal thing they just felt unstable, but it obviously works alright since you got em stacked 6í high. Iíve got something to strive for now

All I know is if I order a bunch there will not be sanctions; in fact the price will drop. If I hesitate and donít order, there will be a run and I wonít get any.

Just order it. NO RAGRETS. Not even a single letter.

On a serious note since Iíve been posting like a 12 year old today, buy some 8M3, a bunch of it even. Worst case scenario maybe Sam does a blowout (which I donít really see happening). If you donít save a few bucks damn the luck but at least you got ammo and one day Iím guessing sooner rather than later it will grow in value anyway when Sam canít get more because itís not a matter of if itís when.

I remember when I bought Brown Bear for $80/case (early 2000s). I thought it was outrageous. Next time I went to buy it, it was $120/case. I about lost it, but bought a case or two or three. I regret not buying more ammo at $80, $120, and 5 years from now I will regret not buying at $200.00

Just order some, you canít have enough ammo. Iíve been stacking 7.62 deep for years and never thought damn I wish I didnít own this much ammo.
