    It's just an excuse. Ammo makers are relishing in the profits they are making, and they have no desire to change it. We've been short on ammo for going on what, four years now? There has been no significant ramp up in ammo, and I don't think they will they're enjoying the short supply and big demand.

    We're getting fucked from the inside and out on ammo.

    someone is going to get their ass handed to them IF it turns out to be fact for all brass.

    1x brass goes for about $2#, scrap brass is $0.30#, thats a lot of money .mil is losing and they want everything they can.

    Go to your local PD outdoor range and ask the rangemaster if you can clean it up.
    Recruits and work detail clean up our brass, but there's always a few hundred .40 and .223 around.

    I only shoot 9mm. Does military even shoot 9mm?
    I know there will be an influx of 9mm purchases and brass hording if this happens, but does it affect it in any other way?

    Assholes. I don't know much about milsurp stuff.

    I am going to infer that this will affect the 9mm supply then.

    I hope the jews can convince them otherwise then.

    Well...I don't really see many 9mms with military crimp at my local range, and I rarely see military 9mm brass for sale online. My guess is this affects 223 shooter more than 9 shooters.

    You should destory and sell your tin foil as surplus too. The big ammo makers of course don't buy that, however small shops like georgia arms do to sell as reloads. GA is cancelling all .223 and .308 orders.

    Demand is demand, and it'll all effect the whole industry :ugh:

    My whole point was we're getting dicked over for no reason anyway, so it'll either go up, or nothing will change.

    This was out a bunch of places, turns out the .gov didn't mean it this way and are supposed to have a waiver that you can buy .50 and under brass without mutilation as long as it is not exported. Should be in the next couple weeks.

    Ha, I was kind of expecting something like this.... :whew:

    Although I can't say I would be totally surprised that they might do something like that. Even if it is going to cost the gov't more money (read: us, the taxpayer)

    This. if you read the notice sent out, the part about mutilation actually applied to "brass sold as scrap" or somesuch, not sold as fired brass.
    DoD didn't want scrap metal to be reloadable, but fired brass--which a lot of DRMO's have by the pallet--is fine, as long as it's domestic.

    Just read this

    "You might want to consider this as breaking news...

    I don't post a lot around here and most of you have no idea who I am. Fact is, I'm an IT guy. A regular, run-of-the-mill computer jockey. But I happen to work for DOD Surplus/Government Liquidation. I've been told by my CEO that as of this morning the requirement to mutilate expended brass has been lift by virtue of a reclassification from Demil B to Demil Q. This applies to all calibers .50 and under. I'm still trying to get confirmation that .50 cal is included in the "safe to sell" list, or whether mutilation is still required.

    I'm busy at work right now, but I will try to post back with more detail and updates when I get the chance.

    Where was that posted?
     
  23. Yeah, but can you imagine the internet shitstorm they would bring upon themselves if they actually tried doing that?
