Not good. The only good news is that 5.45mm ammo is extremely rare.

  1. Beat me too it Rusty. Cheaper Than Dirt is my favorite for all those “off” calibers. They’ve been carrying 5.45 for quite some time.

  2. I’ll be sure to call if they turn up in my neighborhood. I’m not sure what is worse? Thinking it was an inside job or a BATF op gone wrong.
    By the way, thanks for the big gun series. I used to live a couple of hours from Aberdeen and miss walking around in the park. Nice ‘splodey with the atomic cannon also.

  3. I’d be interested in seeing their last Physical Security Inspection. See what the discrepancies were, and if a follow up was done to make sure corrections were made.

  4. SVD in a wrong hands is a disaster in waiting – while not in the league of modern sniper rifles, it has high rate of fire and is precise enough in urbvan condition to make some real mess…
