Only masterblaster could quote himself then talk about back muscles. Lol. Just jokes.

I get pissed when I see 9mm Tula selling for 30$ for 50rds. This is one hell of a storm were going through.

On my local forum before the election I made a post talking about how I thought 22lr would be in high demand and no one would be able to get it if SHTF. Another member have me bad rep for making such a ridiculous claim.

Sometimes I ponder diving into a more obscure caliber. Just so I could do some shooting. I thought I was good with my 357sig, but now maybe ill find myself a gun in 17hmr or something.

I wonder when there will be a run on all these shelves of shogun ammo.

I am stocked up well in all my calibers but I will only shoot what I get new. I also have been reloading for over 35 years.

Somehow, I even have a lot of 22 LR.

In Walmart, people are desperate for 9mm and 22 LR.

This might be a good time for some to shoot black powder. That seems fully stocked.

Seem like the shortages are somewhat localized....my LGS has not really seen any shortages in ammo, guns, yes,but not ammo....I stop about once or twice a week since before all the panic, mostly just to shoot the s@$t...and have never seen empty shelves....plenty of 223/5.56 and 9mm along with most other popular calibers and no gouging! Thursday,I just picked up another 100 rds of black box xm193's for 11.99 per 20...the only thing they seem short on is 22lr...but bricks seem to come in on occasion...and go for about 20$

It seems that some shops get it......and some don't. Friend of mine recently bought two cases of 9mm from a shop in Ohio....$269/case. Place was full of ammo...no restriction on how much you bought. Around here, it's total famine. Can't find a box of fmj practice ammo nohow....

Hope you have plenty of primers as there are none online anywhere.

Well, it's costing you more to buy the ammo than reload it, about 100% more. Skills, yes, it is not baking cookies, but it is an easily learned skill.
IMO, easier to find 1000 affordable primers today than 1000rds of affordable ammo. A LGS has primers every week, just limits you to 1000 a day @ $30/K. Me, I learned from the 98 shortage, then reaffirmed in the 08 shortage; keep a years worth minimum of every primer size you need.

By watching sites like Slickguns and gunbot, and getting on suppliers mailing lists, I'm getting all the ammo I can afford at descent prices. Takes a little work, but I've got 1000 rounds of 9mm target ammo inbound for less than 40 cents per round delivered. It's a price I can live with.

On Gunbot especially, there's plenty of ammo at double the normal price. Every now and again somebody drops a good deal and it's gone in 10 or 15 minutes

I am OLD !! AND I am not paying his prices either. Local shop had primers today at normal prices. Paid $15 for 400 small rifle. Would have been cheaper if I got 1000 but don't shoot that rifle much.Hang in there, won't be long till things settle down.

Not a single store in the area has anything but rifle and shotgun ammo. No online places have anything to buy. I haven't had a decent amount of ammo since November.

Went around yesterday looking for anything. Shelves were empty all around town. I have plenty in storage, but nothing I am willing to take to the range.

I have all the centerfire ammo I'll ever need for when SHTF, plus enough to go to the range regularly for a couple years. I'll buy at reasonable prices but I am not paying gouged priced like $1 per round of .223 or $20 a box for 9mm FMJ.

.223 is down to $.60 a round for brass cased, but 9mm is still $.50 a round and .22LR is still selling $50 per 550 box.

I see ARs selling for $900-$1000 still

I can't even find 12 ga bird or skeet shot. Is there anything we can do to get things back to flush where I can buy whatever I need when I need it at a reasonable price?

And just where is all of this ammo going? Is the federal government buying it all up right from the manufacturer?
