Do any of you guys buy ammo for firearms you don't have? Trading stock or investment if you do? Or get a stock of ammo, then have a reason to buy something to shoot it?

Canít see buying ammo you cannot use yourself Iíd focus on stocking up on what I do own. If it was a NATO round that might make a difference then but you should have those rounds anyway.

Ammo that you will not shoot yourself can be traded or sold....it is a very solid investment right now.

I just placed an order for 20ga shotgun shells and donít own a 20ga.

Bought them for work.

You could say it is an investment, an investment in future hunters.

Maybe, if someone I knew could use it, and it wasn't jacked up price wise.

Right now is a prime time to have anything you can part with.

The guy who instructs the concealed carry courses has some .38 Special + P and older couple bought and brought to the range even though their older gun might not be able to take it. He of course got them the proper ammo and is saving me $100 trading him 9mm ball (or which I have a large cache of) round for round.

I say good trade

I haven't purchased factory ammo other than 22 shells in maybe 10 yrs, And them were shotgun shells. I have 1000's of rounds of rifle, shotgun and pistol. If I wasn't a handloader things maybe different. Im sure there are lots of people buying every box of ammo that they can to make a buck or two.

I have ammo for guns I don't have... yet.

I could have bought 308 last week a pile of it. But Mills Fleet Farm cards you, and I dont own a 308 now

Tempting though

Maybe in Minnesota, but any time I've bought ammo at Fleet Farm they just check my ID for my age and punch in my DOB into the register. But I haven't bought ammo there in 6+ months so maybe that has changed. They gotta have ammo in stock before they can sell it.

Glad to see I'm not the only one -- I have a couple hundred rounds of .243 and I don't own one ( my son and dad both do however). I was thinking of building a 10 in 243 but haven't completely decided for sure yet.

That all depends on the price. If It is cheap, yes I do. If it price like todays ammo, I do not buy any. None for calibers I even own.

If the price is right yeah I will from time to time. Find picking up brass has about the same effect but cheaper
