    This post gave me an idea:

    Common ammo availability if SHTF | Page 4

    Let's say I have a lot of reloading materials for .270 Win and 7mm Rem Mag. But, I would like to have some materials for .38 Special and .357 Mag.

    Let's say person B wants some .270 Win but only has 30-06 to trade.

    Ahhh, but person C has .38 Spc and .357, but wants 30-06 or .44 mag or .44 special

    A deal could be made by first determining the value of each round or unit of whatever (to be done by each party and agreed upon by the whole):

    I'm just making up numbers here, an actual transaction may only be brass or primers or projectiles ....
    C --> 500 rnds .38/.357 to A
    A --> 100 rnds .270/.7mm to B
    B --> 125 rnds 30-06 to C

    ...but, if everyone agrees that this is a good deal, then the barter is on, no money was exchanged, and everyone got what they wanted.

    I need to figure out a computer system that will link the parties up . . .

    If this is up and going, I need a 9mm bullet mold. I have 95 jacketed 300 gr bullets for a 45-70, and about 200 200 gr jsp for a .35 Remington to swap.

    I wouldn't generally relinquish any ammo components that had (if I had any, which I don't), but I would be willing to barter tuned and refinished handsaws and/or silver or Junk Silver to acquire components for .40 S&W, .45 ACP, .45 Colt, .308, and 30-06. Just to get me started. Because I heard that those are good boolits. And I heard you need boolits for guns. I could be wrong.

    I just 2 boxes of 45 cal Hornady 300 gr XTP bullets in a trade. They are too heavy for a .45 auto, anybody want to trade me some 9mm or 45ACP bullets for them?

    I have some more stuff for trading, 95 Hornady bullets, 45 cal, 350 gr, 458 dia, RN probably for a 45-70 that my brother used to have.
    Also 2 50 rd boxes of Hornady 45 cal 452 dia. 300 gr XTP Mag bullets.
    I can use .45 ACP brass and bullets, 9mm brass and bullets, or 30-06 brass and bullets

    I also need mold handles for a double cavity bullet mold.
