russia bans export of ammo

any truth to rumor that russia has prohibited the exporting of ammo to USA ?
biggest local austin gun shop employee said this to me this morning.
all tulia and other brands of ammo manufactured in russia or their satellites will no longer be exported - i.e. all ak ammo.
maybe they are predicting they will need the ammo for themselves.

True or not, it is a good reason to panic and buy, buy, buy.

They're preemptively ceasing export because President Obama stated he was pushing for a ban on import. Pulling the import ban's teeth, if you will.

GNG logic: if it was reported by a gun shop employee or on a YouTube video it must be true

Fine with me. I used Wolf ammo once, and it's the last time I'm going to. I don't think I could make my gun dirtier if I locked the slide back, poured honey in it, and kicked it around in the dirt than by shooting that nasty crap.

In all honesty this one's more than a bit silly. Russia is more self sustaining than most countries so if President Obama thinks sanctions are going to do anything there's got to be someone smoking something in the cabinet.

Now Russia could very well cripple a lot of Europe by stopping oil flow. That one would be interesting.

But considering other countries have either stopped or are considering stopping arms and ammo exports to Russia, it does make sense for Russia to keep what it makes for itself.

Not only that last time I shot it I have 2 or 3 FTFs out of 2 boxes. All had good primer hits and went the second time.

How big is he? I've always found gunshop commando credibility is proportional to their size. And volume...

obama is sure to ban Russian ammo, so maybe Vladimir Putin is getting in the first shot, by making the ban appear to be Russia's idea.

It's not really hard to outsmart obama.

this all seems to be more rumor than truth.

Recall that Wolf also sources ammo in Ukraine.

Maybe we'll get MORE of their stuff...

I could really care less about Russian ammo. I was born in the USA; and my goal is to purchase products that are made in the USA. That being said... The H-E-L-L with Putin and his Russian made ammo.

I doubt it will be permanent but if it isn't true yet I expect it will be in the short term.

Personally I'm a fan of the AK over the AR so this kinda stings for me. There are a few other sources of cheap AK ammo though. Romania and Yugoslavia come to mind.

Course they would get more scarce if Russia stopped exporting too. Wolf makes some in it's Ukraine plant as well, but that looks like its going to be Russian soon.

A little short sighted of you. Even if you don't use the 7.63x39, 5.45x39 or 7.62x54R they also ship out a whole lot of other calibers.

5.56/.223, 9mm, 45acp, etc etc. Those are already expensive and hard to find at times with the cheap russian ammo that people are buying. How do you expect that to go with less ammo available.
