All the AR nuts are going to be scooping up our 5.45.....Theres a few uppers out there now and S&W is making a 5.45 AR

Bastards!!

Why can't these guys go find 10-20 million rnds of 223 in a mudhut somewhere?

The only consolation is most of them are petrified of corrosive ammo. We might start thinking about putting these stickers on the 7N6

Look on the bright side, now GT non-corrosive and "other-than-70 gr. Wolf" will be imported to meet the demand. This is good for us, not bad.

I called a local gun shop today to see if they were still selling Bulgy crates for $225 otd and the asshole owner jacked the price per crate to $335 just becayuse the 4.45 ARs came out. He said he already sold 5 ARs this past week!

these stupid ar guys...
Careful - there's a lot of us Kalashnikov guys that also enjoy the AR platform. Blame the R&D and Marketing departments of Smith&Wesson. :wink:

Those "stinkin' AR guys" as it was put so elequently could also throw the same stones because some knucklehead wanted to have some Kalashnikov variants chambered in 5.56mm thereby ruining it for the AR folks that also kept to themselves. :eek:

It can go both ways - it's just the Growing Cycle of the Weapon. These things are expected to happen. The blame should go toward the ammunition companies jacking the prices up to profit more off everyone.

:lol: I thought everyone was aware of this, all the AR forums have been
Buzzing with this news all over, and in general those AR boys are ecstatic
over this news! Since the price of their 5.56 has been going up, and they all are talking about hoarding up on the 5.45 asap, so there might be a shortage in a week or two! :roll: :lol: :roflmao:

i didnt mean it personally... its just i get a little ticked when they get mad, because the weapon they love's ammo shoots up. dont come stealing all the cheap surplus, then go back to shooting 5.56! i dont like 5.56 at all.

if i had gotten the 20-30k rounds i should have when it first hit, i MIGHT be ok. but i am just getting into ak74's and this has me bummed!

i dont like 5.56 ak's either.

Hah, economic sanctions against the russians will dry up all the 5.45 real quick.

It is an ammo that will soon be hard to get and expensive.

I agree 200% but i am also extremely concerned about all the russ. mil-surp guns also will be banned and when that happens, it will be a catastrophy for the mil-surp market! Any truth to the rumor that FN,Bush,andAUG are considering bringing out their newest guns in 5.45 instead 5.56 due to the much cheaper avail. of the 5.45, thereby increasing their sales? Well they will have to decide soon! :roll:

I think that it is possible that the 545 is poplular enough that there will soon be other sources of ammo, such as expensive American made ammo and other euro boxer primed stuff from prvi and fiocchi.

It will not go away, it just won't be the big bargain that is still just barely is.

The supply of the cheap stuff is finite.
