Feds/DHS Buying Up All Surplus Ammo, Ordering Stores To Cease Sales? 450 million rounds of .40 for DHS
Just days ago a military ammunition supplier announced that the Department of Homeland Security had entered a contract to purchase 450 million rounds of .40 Caliber ammunition, which is more than on bullet for every man, woman and child in the United States.

ATK has secured a major Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity deal to supply up to 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition to the Department of Homeland Security.

What the hell does DHS need with all that ammo?



I think I'm seeing the writing on the wall.


To disarm America they deplete the ammo stock by buying it all up so only they have the ammo.

Search is your friend

putin

The contract is NOT "indefinite" it is 5 years with a maximum of 450 million round.

That original story is a market shiny lure for investors.

Better go buy a bunch now then!

Oh the ammo industry loves useful morons that go out and buy shitloads of excess stuff because a misleading news article makes you think you might not be able to get ammo.

Look the military has an obligation to try and sell its surplus ammo to other branches of the government before offering it to sale for civilians, this is only for milsurp ammo and ofcourse wouldnt affect regular ammo you buy at wal-mart, etc AT ALL.

.223 is NOT MIL-Spec ammo. Mil-surplus ammo is 5.56x45 (M855, M193, mk 318 Mod-0)

The gov has not sold surplus back to civis in a while...

The stuff from Lake City with the "X" in front of it are rejects from the factory.

Guys...you are missing the bigger point here. 450m rounds of Hollow Point Ammo is what was ordered by DHS. HP ammo is outlawed for military use per the Geneva Convention. Therefore it cannot be used in warfare...However using flesh shredding HP Ammo for civilian "Law Enforcement" is perfectly legal.

Why are they buying Hollow Point (Death Star) Ammo...because they don't want anything they shoot to get up!!!
