Default ammo shortage?

Ha.....the stories I could tell.

I'm thinking of putting about 3 foot of water in the basement storage room. My ammo doesn't float so it should be easy (uh...easier) to find that way.

HA! True story, from Evinston no less (good lord that place gets cold in the winter):

In the mid 1980s my dad had a side job doing repo'd home maintenance. He worked for a insurance company that insured bank owned homes. Our job was to go in, turn off water and winterize in the fall... remove fire hazards, change the locks etc etc.

Normally we worked along the Wasatch Front... but occasionally we got the odd job further out. Well we got a job in Evanston in the dead of winter and went up. We "gained access" to the home started looking around for things we needed to do.

My dad said "Hey do you hear water running?" LOL... I found the downstairs and took a look. There was a burst pipe and the entire downstairs had hip deep freezing water. The water shutoff of course was on the opposite side of the stairs. I ended up stepping in a 55gal drum liner, wearing it like a sack and carefully wading across to shut off the water.

I'll bet that entire downstairs froze solid. Wish I could have seen the real estate agents face that first discovered the indoor skating rink.

I think that I lived in that house only they moved it to Rock Springs.

While I was working in the oil fields the boss sent us up there to work for a couple of months and said that he found a home for us to stay in. The person who gave us the keys told us to stay out of the basement since it had been flooded. Well, you don't tell a 21 year old to stay out of something. When we looked down into the basement we saw that it was frozen solid with about a foot of ice. Luckily the home had electric base board heat and the water heater was on the first floor. However we made the best of things and kept all of our beer downstairs on the ice.

If you need .348 i have some extra. I went a little crazy when I heard Hornady was discontinuing brass and bullets.

I got some 348 brass from Starline a couple of years ago. I have some original Winchester brass that I have been trying not to load up and started searching and then I found that Starline has it.

Reading this got me to thinking, so I looked at Gunbroker for .225 Winchester ammo. $4.20 a round! I have a hundred or so rounds for a gun I used to shoot and was supposed to inherit, father in-law still unsure where it went. Also have quite a bit of once fired brass.
Id like to find a rifle but for those prices, I may reconsider.

I have a Win 70 .225 and maybe 250 rounds/brass. What a great caliber. I still see a few .225 Winchesters for sell on Gunsmoke and GunsAmerica.

I haven't checked lately but .22WRF used to be available. Just expensive to plink with.
