1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    Got a new toy so now I need so ammo to feed it. Gun club does not allow steel core so I need match-grade ammo, not surplus.

    Please reply or message if you have any loaded A-MAX or just the bullets.

    Thanks

    If you don't have any luck trying to find AMAXs, take a look at this brand. The price is definitely competitive. Good luck.

    This is great, thanks a lot for the link. At some point, I will load my own, but I just need a few boxes of factory for the break-in and to get started.

    Didn't realize that .50 BMG was a victim of the lunacy too. All I could find were places that "used" to have them. Wonder if a call to Barrett might get you some leads? I'll keep looking around. Good luck.

    With the way this country feels about black rifle's now day your going to need all the luck you can get on finding any bullets for that 50BMG.

    I sold my Barrett 50 & and my brand new Barrett 416 that I just got this year due to you can't find bullets. I can get the ammo from Barrett but for 20rds cost a little over $400 bucks match grade. So I sold my two long range rifles that I loved and told my wife I am going to get a little deeper in to trap shooting this year and give up long range shooting.

    I just talk to a guy that sells rifle reloading stuff tonight and he is telling me anything to do with rifles your going to be lucky to find, the reloading stuff for shot guns is going to be letting up some here before long and your going to be able to find that stuff easy.

    Good luck on finding the stuff you need.

    Sorry to hear that Rick, it's hard to find some ammo, but it's not impossible.

    I was able to locate some A-max today for a reasonable amount, but could use a bit more.
