View Full Version : Aussie 308 & Mags in Ohio
March 25, 2004, 21:02
With spring weather coming on, I'm getting an itchy trigger finger. It's time to stock up on Aussie 308 while it's still around. I talked with Dan (Dan's Sporting Goods) about a group buy for Fal-filers. The light is green, let's make this a GO!
Dan thinks the Aussie will be all gone in the next 60days.
Price: $123.00 per case.
Also, FAl mags are going to be available for around $3.00 ea. or so depending on what Dan finds - Imbels or Herstals.
If anyone is interested, 7.62X39 can also be included at the same time. I'll get a price if enough people are interested.
I'll pickup everything at Dan's & deliver to a chosen spot or two for you.
Pickup points along Interstate 77 from Cambridge to Akron and Interstate 70 from Columbus to Cambridge work for me. As more of you respond, logical drop spots will become apparent.
Anyway, let me hear from you soon on this one. We'll get some good ammo at a great price and show a little support for one of our board's sponsors.

I'm in for some 7.62x39 and 7.62x51. Is this blister pack or ammo can 308? Do you have a price on x39 per M yet?
March 25, 2004, 23:59
I'd be interested in a case of each. Let me know the info. -myers
March 26, 2004, 00:12
The Aussie 308 comes in 800 round cases, 5 cartons per case & blister pac.

Iím interested in a case or 2 of each. Whatís time line/deadline for the deal?
March 26, 2004, 06:51
I'm in for 2-3 cases of Aussie. I would be interested in 762x39 also at a decent price. Oh Hell, with only 50-60 mags, I'd probably have to have some of these as well.
Come on guys, lets get it while the gettins good.....................
I'll get in. Need the price on the 7.62x39 to decide on how much of what. Course it also depends on how much I can shake the Tweeter down for. Does Dan have any .45 ACP? Need that too.
March 26, 2004, 16:37
Count me in if ther is a drop off point by Brunswick or fur fin & feather.
I would like to know the 7.62x39 price also.
March 26, 2004, 22:06
Count me in for a few and more if the price drops froma larger order....I take it we can't get lucky and get the cases with ammo cans and bangos???
March 27, 2004, 12:38
I'm in for a case or 2 of .308 (dayton area).
March 29, 2004, 21:35
You can count me in, what time frame are you looking at? When will you need "firm" orders and how do we work payment, COD?
March 30, 2004, 05:45
one case of each.
April 08, 2004, 11:26
Sorry to let this lie idle for so long, but it's time to get this "group buy" moving. I spoke with Dan again today and he's got us covered on this group buy, but the Aussie is virtually gone. There will be no more Aussie coming. Get it now or forever wish you had. Dan is out of 7.62X39 & 45acp & Dan can not find enough mags to offer on this deal so mags are out.
The deal is simple : Aussie 308 blister packed 800 rd case for $123.00 delivered to two pickup points, one in Dover area & one in Columbus area.
Pickup dates & time scheduled for Dover the 4/24 & Columbus 4/25. I'll post exact times later when I see who's in on this. Terms, COD - cash or check will work.
It is time for placing your firm orders on this one.
When Dan had his FAL kits confiscated a year ago, many heralded support for Dan. Now is a great time to step up and walk the walk!
April 08, 2004, 13:31
Two cases, possibly three.
April 08, 2004, 17:47
When does the money have to be definete by? Im probably going to be getting some money the 18th, and my next paycheck will be that weekend. But not totaly sure on $123. When do you need to know for sure? -myers
April 08, 2004, 20:23
Right now I just need a count on the number of cases for this group buy. Commit to however many cases you want now and have the money ready at the time of delivery ( 4/24 or 4/25 ).
2 cases of Aussie for me.
Guys I can pick up at Dover and deliver West from there to Fin, Feather, Fur. PM me if you want me to pick yours up. I'll pay OHLAR and you pay me when you get your ammo. And yes I charge interest if your late, let's see a blister pack a day seems about right. :biggrin:
Gary Bob if you want I can pick yours up and you can get it at the usual spot.
Thanks OHLAR For putting this together.
April 09, 2004, 09:35

ONG can you convert that interest to 7.62X39?

April 09, 2004, 10:35
You can put me down for 3 cases of Aussie. I would like to pick up in Columbus and payment will be by personal check unless you would prefer otherwise.
April 09, 2004, 11:21

April 09, 2004, 22:13

Listen no problem, I have room at my place. Buy all you want & I'll store it for you. Heck I'll even shoot it for you if you want. What a guy....what a guy.
Randy, breakfast sounds good to me.
April 10, 2004, 22:39
OK I'm in for (2) cases but only because ONG made fun of me :tongue:. Are we meeting at the Holiday Inn on Lane Ave again or where in Columbus?
April 11, 2004, 18:26
Count me in for two cases - may take a week or two to get to Columbus.
April 12, 2004, 11:55
OK I need one more case for a total of (3) Cases. That blasted ONG he just pushes my buttons:rofl: . Actually 2 of them are not for me HA I still get the last laugh.
Will your friend need storage space also?
April 12, 2004, 15:54
I have room.........................
Guys I'm planning on picking up my ammo on the 24th. If you want me to pick yours up also PM me and we'll make plans. I will be making a run to the Fin for those out Ashland and Mansfield way.
April 16, 2004, 05:43
Hey Mike and Gary...
So when are we going to get this together, I need it to be on a weekend again and Mike you are the man!
April 16, 2004, 06:33
Looks to me like OHLAR will be in Columbus on the 25th which is a Sunday.
Gary has it, Ohlar is making the run to Columbus this time. I'll be down at fair time again this summer let's plan on getting together then if not sooner.
April 17, 2004, 05:27
Sounds like a great plan to me!! Same way as before :whiskey: :bow: :whiskey:
April 17, 2004, 15:35
Who is doing the Fin Fur and Feather drop off? Can you get my case for me? Just tell me when and where. Ohfal, I can get your case(s) if your not going to be able to. I'll hijack my dads truck. (It's a excuse to drive it) -myers
April 20, 2004, 20:13
To all you fence sitters out there....this group buy is going to close Wed evening(that' April 21st). So get your orders in by then. Thanks, Ohlar
What Ohlar said was Chirp or get off the fuc'..twig.
April 21, 2004, 18:37
I would like to reconfirm my order for 3 cases of Aussie for a total of $369.
As long as a personal check is satisfactory for payment, who do I make it out to?
Thanks for doing this for us, I really appreciate it.
April 21, 2004, 20:28
Let me know what I owe (2 cases) and I shall send funds. It may take me a week or two to get out to pick it up.
PS Upon reading the thread - I may be in for four cases. If that is the case please let me know and I shall pay accordingly! Thanks
April 22, 2004, 06:55
Ok wait a sec I'm having trouble following this.....where are we at? Can we get an updated post?
This is my understanding of what's going on:
Ohlar will pick up ammo Friday the 23rd.
I'm meeting him Saturday morning at New Phily and will pick up ammo for Fal Grunt, Ohfal, Cal50 and myself.
Sunday Ohlar will be running to Columbus. I don't know where that meeting place is. Get hold of garybob if you don't rear from Ohlar.
If any of the above is not correct someone straighten us out.
April 22, 2004, 12:39
This group buy is now closed. Nice going guys! Thanks for your support on this one. The order is confirmed for Friday pickup by me at Dan's.
Sat pickup in Dover (ONG I'll PM you with locatiion/time conformation)
Sunday 25th pickup will be at 10:00 am at the Old Northland Mall behind Taco Bell ( Morse rd & Karl rd )
Randyqnq, head north on I-71 to Morse rd go east approx 2mi. to Old mall/Taco bell on the right & look for white Dodge van.
Smiffo I sent you a PM with pickup details.
Cash or check at the pickup is Ok
See you all SAT/SUN, Ohlar
April 22, 2004, 14:16
Way cool Ohlar, thanx for putting this together for us. You bringing those great cannon boxes you were talking about.? There great for packing and storing stuff in.
Think I'll dump all three cases out on the floor and play in it.
