I think it's too early to know anything yet. Even once things are announced if they follow the same pattern as the last few we will have to see what that means for ammo.

FWIW, the new round of sanctions was announced to be focused on anyone supplying chemical and other weapons to Syria. As usual, we wait to see what devils may be in the details.

Basically it says Trump says no more sanctions. At least not right now.

Was gonna get some later this month, but went ahead and got a case of Wolf Milspec to try out in my move away from GT. Also got a little each of Golden Bear, Silver Bear, PPU, and Hornady for some upcoming accuracy tests.

ETA: $159.75 shipped, about 6.39 a box for .308, hard to beat that, .32 per round.

Firefox Private Browsing or Chrome Incognito mode should let you into there.

Will the World Cup 2018 create a Russian Ammo Shortage?

http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2...ammo-shortage/

TulAmmo USA has advised that due to Russia hosting the World Cup this summer, the port of St. Petersburg will be closed to all hazardous class material and TulAmmo will not receive any shipments from Russia over the roughly two months that the port will be closed.

Good move captain.

So no matter what the future holds in store you will have your case of ammo.

I see the future of AK-47/74 ammo as getting more and more precarious as it will become more and more a "political weapon."

Now Hornady is making a decent 5.45 round now using the AMAX bullet but they are importing the damn cases from Mother Russia.

So at some point Hornady may step up and start machining 5.45 brass cases if they see that they are the "only game in town" down the road.

If they do that eventually the 5.45 will OF COURSE cost much more but at least it would be quality ammo.

BUT...if that day comes Hornady will be able to sell every 5.45 round they make so they certainly won't lose money. Steve Hornady IS NOT a dumbass. He will watch the situation unfold.

Had an AR-15 lover/AK hater teasing me last week with...."You guys won't be able to get ammo in a year or two."

So I played the Hornady 5.45 card on him and that shut him up pretty fast. He didn't even know that Hornady has been making 5.45 rounds with the AMAX bullet for awhile know.

And I do know of one Bulgarian AK-74 owner who uses the Hornady ammo right now in his rifle for home defense. He claims that the muzzle flash in low light from the Hornady 5.45 round is much lower than the Russian 5.45 too.
