we haven't seen it here in a while anyways. it'll just be a little while before we see it again. they're still making M193, they're just fulfulling gov't contracts before the one with winchester. the gov't is buying it all up, so we won't see botach with any IMI M193 for sale for a while either. it'll be back in the future. guess i'm glad my best friend handloads, and i'm glad i stocked up on M193 and Q3131A the last two years.
that's what you people get for making fun of people for caching M193.
Lake city M193 is like gold now.
most M193 ammo are on a drought. Cant find shit anywhere. If you can, it'll be at a premium price.
this cant be good
from what i understand, they didnt halt the production, its just that the supply was redirected from the civilian sector to our armed forces..
which is exactly what i just said.
just buy wolf or something for now. hopefully, you stocked up on Q and M193 when it was around. if not, just wait for it to come back. LC M193 is crap, and has been far too expensive for a LONG, LONG time. at one point, it was cost-effective. not anymore. learn to reload, then you can make M193-velocity ammo for less than wolf prices.
Yeah but the initial investment in reloading equipment is high, especially since you would probably want a progressive press. I got a single stage setup for christmas and still needed about $150 worth of stuff to start (calipers, case trimmer, dies, bullets, powder, etc).
whoops... i guess i overlooked that
Ammoman just got federals last 400 cases of boxed xm193.
