1. Cost of rounds would BE 1 million. $20 a box of 20 round. 

2. It IS FMJ. First I have seen. Your point 


3. OUT OF STOCK.  as is most everything.

How many American gun shops have you been in this week?

1. I assumed the cost per round would go down due to the volume. Like this:

https://www.luckygunner.com/rifle/7.62x39mm-ammo

1000 rounds for $410.00 comes to .41/round. Two million rounds (the amount Childress wants to donate) would come to $820 000.00.

2. Thank you.

3. You do understand that they would be getting the ammo directly from a manufacturer and not from a gun shop, right? I mean, it’s not as if Elon Musk would be on the waiting list for a back-ordered Tesla.

Lol.

There are no volume deals right now - you dreamer you....

..

Why would there be? Every round right now can be sold for above MSRP. Demand has far outstripped supply.

To be honest - I don' t know WHAT the rules are for buying ammo in the USA and shipping it overseas.......

Safe bet - you don' t either....

MY BET?

It' s not gonna happen. It' s just for publicity amongst the patriotically polluted peckerheads of the NASCAR ilk....

I just linked to a volume discount - first, I posted a link of one company selling this ammo for $1 per round, in a 20 round box. Then, I posted another link of a different company selling the same ammo for .41c per round, in a 1000 round case. It looks like if you buy 1000 rounds instead of 20, you get a 59% discount. I imagine if you’re on the board of directors of the company that makes the ammo, you could get it for even less.

You’re correct - I haven’t a clue about the rules or procedures for shipping ammo from one country to another, but I’m sure it’s doable. The international arms trade appears to be a thriving business.

It's quasi-legal, the american gun lobby (NSSF) has worked tirelessly to remove any obstacles to american made weapons and ammunition ending up in the hands of people in active conflict zones.

Doesn’t seem like it’d be a difficult work around. Send your stuff to some country not involved in an active conflict, then they send it on to where it’s supposed to be. 

I don’t know that it’s done this way, but I can’t imagine it isn’t.
