It doesn’t necessarily mean a societal collapse, but definitely fundamental changes are coming, as you have been warning.”

Looking for some .30-06 armor piercing (AP) ammo? The DoD’s Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) [4] just got a batch that they are offering for sale. This was mentioned this in their latest newsletter: “The .30-06 AP ammo that we now have available includes headstamps: AYR, SL, TW, and LC. Dates of manufacture vary from the 1940s to the 1950s. Most of the ammo is corrosive, but some may be non-corrosive. The ammo is packaged in 8 round M1 Garand en bloc clips, in bandoleers, in spam cans. Purchases of multiple cans will be shipped in what appear to be the original wooden crates (two spam cans per crate). Cans and crates will be selected luck of the draw as to the head stamp. 4C3006U202-192P. Single spam can (192 rounds). $60.00. S&H at $8.95 per can.” (State and local restrictions may apply!)
