Just had this passed on to me today
"Hi All, I've just received a call from Jimmy at Gardners Guns, the Police have informed him that 1,000 rounds of 5.56 ammo has been stolen from Longtown Ammo dump and asked anyone offered it to contact the Police. ( suppose it depends on how -cheap the ammo is ? )"

All the details that I have are in the "Quote"
I guess some one left the ammo cabinet door open ? andthe thief help his self and drove out the base past the Armed Mod police check point with the ammo in the boot:rofl:.
It may have being stolen weeks ago and only became missing at a stock check .

probably an accounting blip.... find it hard to believe someone walked off with it or it ended up on a miscounted pallet

Bearing in mind lads that 1000 rounds of 5.56mm is only 1 H83 Mk2 container so not a massive amount of bulk to hide. It is also possible that an accounting error has taken place, talking from experience as an ammo NCO out in Afghan mistakes do happen.
