+busterbabes Posted October 7, 2009 Share Posted October 7, 2009 Is anyone finding the price of ammocans skyrocketing? And the lack of availability? I went to my local surplus store today to help with an IGO/BSA 100 year anniversary project. 30 cal cans were 3.95 last time I went in there, and there were at least 100 in stock.. today, there were 10 cans, and they were 8.50 a piece! I was told that the government is crushing the ammo cans vs. surplusing them out? Uncle Stan (my surplus guru) said he used to get a pallet of cans every week. He ran some numbers while I was there, the government pays 13,000$ to crush the ammo cans. And thats just the cost of the ammo cans being crushed that Uncle Stan could sell surplus. (Stan did not specify if that was weekly/monthly/yearly). Imagine the cost of ammocan crushing America wide! I was very disheartened about this, and think something needs to be done to save the ammocans!! Quote Link to comment
