Anyone who has not shot those spotter/tracer rounds is missing a real treat! Figure that shipping is costing around $30, so that ammo is real inexpensive.

I load my own... Can't get any good match quality .50 ammo for a good price otherwise.

I am however always on the lookout for the 710 grain AP projectiles... they are surprisingly accurate.

Fortunately when .50BMG ammo was relatively cheap, I bought a BUNCH of it. Plus I have projectiles, brass, primers, and powder to last me a REAL LONG TIME.

The stuff like API, Spotter/Tracer, and Incendiary are all non renewable resources, as it is EXTREMELY doubtful that stuff will ever be available to us mere mortals again once the current supply dries up.

I'm glad I also reload and have been stocking up on 50 supplies for a few years now. Every chance I get I buy more brass, bullets and primers.

Cheaper than Dirt is listing Talon at over $600.00 for 150 rounds

Major OUCH!! Looks like AmmoMan is all sold out. Maybe it is crunch time for this caliber with all the talks of .50 bans being thrown about.

They are all out now. If you call them and ask them about the FN 50BMG ammo they might be able to tell you when they are getting more. I know I would love to get some more. It was something like $249 for 200 and then it cost me $50 for shipping.

Hello
I am a Life Time NRA member, former Class III dealer and was an early member of FCSA for many years.
I was thinking about dusting off my McMillan when I discovered my buddies have shot up my spar ammo.
I think I paid .50 a round for the last I bought; I see that is not possible now.
Does any one know where I could buy 1000 or 2000 rounds of 50 Cal. Ball Ammo at a good price?

Appreciate any information any one can offer on buy a large quantity of ammo.
I would also buy some .223 to feed my Class III’s.

Best Regards
Nathan

I really don't think there is any "cheap" .50BMG around any longer. And don't see how the future will bring out any either. I doubt the government is allowing much in the way of imports of this stuff.

The only option you probably have is to buy reloading gear and supplies and roll your own. Using surplus powder and components (which may still be available), is about the only route open to you.

BTW, it appears that AmmoMan (http://www.Ammoman.com) just got in a shipment of the Barrett stamped ammo. Price is around $4 per round.
