People are always quick to get their sharp sticks to the ready.

I've ordered ammo from them on more than one occasion and I've never had any issues, either.

Sg is good to go! Times may be a little slow for them, so help em out when you can and buy some ammo. You will be helping yourself with a solid investment as well so it's a win win!

$199 for 1000 rounds is cheap. If you want some, buy it. Who cares if it isn't $180. Quit being cheap, and just support a good vendor or there won't be one. last time I heard, businesses have to make profits to survive. If you don't need any ammo, then cool. Move on.

By the way, SG ammo, thank you very much for the 20 - 500 round cans of German MEN .303 surplus ammo for my Bren MKI. You guys kick major ass!

Because of a penny/round price difference?

It is a good thing that people are loyal and support a business that they appreciate; however, whether you recognize it or not, people will have criticisms of that business. I wouldn't describe criticism as hate, although it has the possibility to be. Money is an important object for most, and some just prefer to get the most bang for their buck, I am one of those people.

Since most online ammo vendors in The U.S. are merely distributors of ammo manufactured somewhere else I don't see why there would be any difference in the quality of product between distributors, besides maybe a bad batch. Therefore I don't hold loyalty to any online ammunition business and take the lowest bidder as I don't care what ammunition it is as long as it runs fine. Also, I am cheap. Which there is nothing wrong with being cheap, just like there is nothing wrong with spending more money on a business because of the loyalty you hold.

If folks wouldn't see the business people who sell them commodities online as friends, they wouldn't feel so upset when those same business people act as business people.

I'll continue to buy from SGA. A few $ more or less doesn't deter me. I just don't need any. Maybe he's doing us a favor and keeping us informed on things to come. Hell, if it were me, I'd just not say anything at all. When the Russian sanctions happen and no more imports from Russia, I'd price everything I have just below my competitors and be a hero!

BTW, they're NOT banning ammo from being imported...they're banning EVERYTHING from being imported into the US that originates from Russia.

There is still no hard evidence that all Russian imports will in fact be banned, though.

That would be the smart thing to do, along with not writing the batfe to ask about 5.45 pistols and/or shouldering braces.

He doesnt give a flying fetch about you or anybody else here, all he cares about is selling ammo. Creating panic to drive up sales plain and simple. Hes easier to read than a book, using the same scare tactics and inventory manipulation over and over again. Its bordering on pathetic at this point..if you have a good selection of quality ammo at a decent price, it should sell itself.

Do you need official goverment note to believe? Last time it happened with Molot ban they are announced this officially morning time and afternoon within couple of hours stores become empty on Veprs. Some models never comeback and some are comeback with much higher price tags or on gunbroker. Just an example of what will happen with official hard evidence ...

Tactics? In any case it is up to you to believe Sam or not, nobody is taking money out of your pockets. Yapping on respectful person is not smart at least after several cases of non stop sunctions on Russia and firearms happening last couple of years.
