DHS Purchasing 450 MILLION .40 Cal bullets
Are't there about 450 Million people in the US?

Also

"We've also learned that the Department has an open bid for a stockpile of rifle ammo. Listed on the federal business opportunities network, they're looking for up to 175 million rounds of .223 caliber ammo to be exact. The .223 is almost exactly the same round used by NATO forces, the 5.56 x 45mm."

Rumor is they are buying up all available rounds. None for public consumption.

 Quoting: N3m3s1s


the .40 S&W round is a good round. More stopping power than a 9mm but not as likely to pass through the target and hit bystanders like a .45acp.

A lot of police dept's use the .40 S&W now... just didn't think the gov't had moved to it.

I've got about 300 rounds of .45acp... thinking now that maybe I should get a bunch more before the gov't decides they like .45acp too.

Yes a .40 hollow point doesn't have the best stopping power of available rounds such as the 45 but it is deadly once inside.

.40 cal hollow points - that's the type of round you would use in close quarters when conducting raid or such.
Maybe the NDAA roundups are bout to start.
