TVA buying thousands and thousands of SKS ammo
TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) Power Company

I heard from a reliable source that works for the company that the TVA is buying thousands and thousands of SKS rounds and was told to be prepared for December 1st, 2012.

Why would they be buying all this ammo is what I want to know.

Re: TVA buying thousands and thousands of SKS ammo
My guess would be if what we are hearing about turns out to be true (or even close) with regard to the grid going down for up to several weeks beginning on/around Dec 21st, it would be predictable for many, many VERY PISSED OFF uninformed citizens to descend on utility companies everywhere to "demand" that their electric service be "turned back on".

TVA personnel may be particularly vulnerable because many of its utility offices/substations are located in very rural areas?

What did your very reliable source say about why the TVA chose to use SKS ammo?

What kind of gun(s) use SKS ammo?

SKS ammo is universal I believe.

It works in both the SKS and AK47.

Re: TVA buying thousands and thousands of SKS ammo
SKS ammo is a funny way to say it
that would be 7.62x39mm
this cartridge is also used in Mini-30s, Ak-47s, and some AR-15s. While it would be disturbing if TVA is buying this quantity of rounds to call them SKS rounds is a bit of hype

You are correct, I should have worded it better to avoid confusion.

But you are correct. It is 7.62x39mm and not SKS.

What Biochemky couldbe true. TVA control a lot of the plants and dams here in the south so either they stock piling it to be prepared or (crazy theory) they were told to get it because the round it self can be used against military or law enforcement and they wanted to get it before the civilians could.

This is coming from a person that works security at a TVA plant. I can't say much more then that.

They carry 12 gauge, AR-15's, and 40 MM. Why would they need 7.62 rounds?

Re: TVA buying thousands and thousands of SKS ammo
that would depend if it's 51 or 39 .....much better reach out and touch someone with 7.62 x 51 (308) than the current loads they carry .
Penetration is another bonus

of course there is always battlefeild pickups of 39 weapons if the right party shows up

What if most government agencies have all been required to buy this ammo in an effort to inflate the prices to such an extent nobody can afford it? I wouldn't put it past our government to attempt such a thing, and since they know they can't simply eliminate the second amendment, maybe those agencies that can get away with it are instead buying up all the rounds they can (with our tax dollars).

Not sure about the TVA, but certainly the others might have some form of plausible deniability....
Within the surreal depths of "reality" lies the truth.

If you buy it all up, there will be none left on the shelves. Kinda like snow in the south, everyone rushes to buy milk and bread, and the store shelves become empty.
