I was at the local gun shop last night and the owner said that there was an import ban on Russian 7.62x39 ammo. I can't find out anything about this rumor. Has anyone else heard of this? I hope it wasn't just a sales ploy.

I mean, I hope it WAS just a sales ploy and not a real ban.

Seems there were some rumors going around a few years ago but if those are true I must be buying up left overs cause I've just got lots of Russian ammo in that's sitting on my ammo shelves.

There was a shortage thread in the AK47 forum about something similar to this a while back.
Some site sponsors chimed in too.
