We know the DHS purchased 450 million rounds of hollow point ammo not too long ago. The newest order is 750 million hollow point .40 caliber rounds- in addition to what has already been ordered. Besides this, they're now buying 150 million rounds of .223. This is approximately double the entire annual US Navy and US Marine Corps war-time budget for small arms ammunition combined- all for an agency that has no combat element. The Market Watch press release covering the purchase order has apparently been pulled from the internet, for some reason. If anyone can find the original, it might be nice to read it, maybe find out WTF they're stockpiling all of this hollow point ammo for. Despite one person's account that they use it for practice, I find it a bit expensive to use hollow points for practice ammo unless you are in a specialized unit- in which case maybe 20% of your budget would go to high quality hollow points, and the rest would be ordinary jacketed practice rounds. While there no doubt are specialized units in the DHS, I'd find it hard to believe they could burn off more ammo than all of the US Navy and the entire US Marine Corps during a time of two simultaneous wars. http://www.marketwatch.com/Story/story/rescue?SourceUrl=http://www.marketwatch.com/story/atk-secures-40-caliber-ammunition-contract-with-department-of-homeland-security-us-immigration-and-customs-enforcement-dhs-ice-2012-03-12 If you're in the market for ammo, now is probably a good time to get what you can. As word of this spreads, it's likely to get scarce.
