Ammo for the Drug Wars?

250,000 rounds of assault rifle ammunition!

Quarter-million rounds of ammo seized on border
Mexican agents have seized more than 250,000 rounds of assault rifle ammunition from a U.S. 18-wheeler in Ciudad Juárez, KSAT-TV is reporting.

The driver, who is from the Dallas area, was detained after Tuesday’s discovery, the station adds. The driver said he had no goods to declare when he arrived at the border.
