So are we going to see a reduction in the cost of ammo? Me hopes so.

I think centerfire ammo is already trading at or below production costs.

How does the saying go? Ammo today is more expensive than it has ever been, and cheaper than it is ever going to be.

This is defiantly going to have some impact on copper prices very soon......



Congress clears way for copper mine in Arizona

By - Associated Press - Friday, December 12, 2014

SUPERIOR, Ariz. (AP) - A trade of public and private lands needed to allow the development of a massive copper mine 70 miles southeast of Phoenix is on its way to President Barack Obama’s desk as part of the nation’s annual defense funding bill.

The annual defense authorization bill passed by the Senate Friday includes the trade that will allow Resolution Copper Mining Co. to develop the mine near Superior, touted as the largest in North America. The company will trade 5,300 acres of environmentally sensitive land under the control of its parent company for 2,400 acres of the Tonto National Forest.

I bought a sxxt-load of Barnes bullets during the ammo scare, I will have to take a look and see if the prices have gone down. We have to use non-lead ammo where we hunt pigs so I may stock up, again. The Barnes TSX for .270, .308 and .300 Winmag have given us dependable results the last few years. Very accurate and excellent expansion...

Accuracy is excellent. I have to go to the range in the next few weeks to make sure things are sighted in for our next hunt. I will get some photos of the targets...
