It's certainly possible that Obama, or any future president could ban imported ammo or firearms from any, or all countries. It's already been done with China.
However, I'd be willing to venture that if no 7.62x39, 5.45x39, 7.62x54R, etc you would start seeing domestic production skyrocket to fill demand. It might not ever get to be as low of a price as the imported stuff, but I'd bet it would be much cheaper then the domestic stuff is made now.
It's possible to make/buy brass cased 7.62x39 ammo fairly cheap. I used to buy brass cased Fiocchi 7.62x39 before I found a range that I could use steel cased ammo in. It was only about 5-8 cents more per round than wolf at the time.
I'm not going to say I'm not concerned about the ammo supply long run. If it happened I think things would get rough for around 8-12 months at least but I'm sure some ammo company would love to fill the void and make a pile of money feeding all of those AK, SKS and Mini 14 rifles that are in the country.
There isn't much domestic production of the soviet calibers right now. What little there is are mainly used by people for hunting from Mini 14s. I don't think I've ever seen anyone load up an AK mag with Winchester or Federal 7.62x39 ammo.
I won't be wronged. I won't be insulted. I won't be laid a-hand on. I don't do these things to other people, and I require the same from them. - John Bernard Books(John Wayne in The Shootist)
