Top 10 Ammo Posts as of May 25, 2013

The biggest fixed expenses when getting into the gun game are usually firearms, then optics, or sometimes the other way around. But over the lifetime of a platform — rifle, shotgun, handgun, doesn’t matter — the biggest expense is almost always ammo. Accordingly, stories focusing on ammunition use, tuning, and suitability are favorites of the Cheaper Than Dirt! Chronicle community. Here are the most-read articles we’ve run in the Shooter’s Log that have to do with ammunition choice and performance:

  1. If my life really deepened on it I would use an ak in 7.62 x39 witch is ballistically equal to the 300 blackout all most . In a much more reliable platform !!

  2. If the DHS wasn’t buying something like 10 million rounds of ammo, there wouldn’t be a shortage. The government is buying up ammo to drive up the price. Why does DHS need 10 million rounds of ammunition?
