Found a place in Laredo that still has most popular calibers of ammo in stock, including .223.That's the good news.

The bad news is that selection is limited. For example, most of the handgun ammo was either that aluminum-cased Blazer stuff, or it was FMJ. For rifle cartridges there was very little variety in terms of manufacturer or bullet weight. Purchases are limited to one box per caliber per day. And the prices ... Oh My God. I damn near had to take out a bank loan to cover what I bought.

Still, beggars can't be choosers. At least I was able to snag some feedstock for my boomsticks. Another trip or two and I should be in reasonable shape.

At least until the wife sees the credit card bill...
