When do you see the ammo shortage loosening up?

It's already letting up a little bit. But I don't expect to see 308, 223, or 22LR on the shelves in any kind of normal quantity before fall.

Add 9mm to that list and you have the only calibers I am really interested in, and they're the ones in the shortest supply.

Let these hoarders buy everything up in ammo. When they do not have monies for their everyday expenses,then watch the LOW BIDDING BEGIN ON AMMO. THEY WILL LOOSE,WE WILL WIN. WATCH THE GUNSHOWS VERY CAREFULLY. If they don't want to dicker on lower prices,like I said before,WALK AWAY. Holidays are coming up and vacations. Low bidding wars begin. Because,they will need the money or their wives will leave them and call them stupid.

There was an abundance of .223 at my local Cabelas today when I was there to buy a new gear bag. One whole end cap entirely full and all sorts of varieties on the shelf and in large quantities. Had quite a bit of .45 & .40 as well. No 9mm (aside from Liberty Defense frangible rounds) and zero .22 LR to speak of -- luckily my Wal-Mart had the 9mm and .22 in stock. It won't be too much longer before things return to "normal" methinks.

Has been much better at my local Wal Mart . More showing up on the shelves. Yesterday I went in early am as usual and found 45 ACP and 22L. Went back in the afternoon for something else and checked. Was still ammo on the shelve. Today I went in and more 45acp and lots of Federal 100 pack and 50 in 9 mm. A few weeks ago what ammo came in the am was gone in a few hours. Was some .223 and good supply of AR's.

The local Academy is packed full of ammo, though 9mm and .22 is the least, still just stacks of them. It lasts a bit due to only being able to buy 1 box of each type of ammo for a total of 3 boxes.

That's good news. That was unheard of before.

It's funny how from area to area ammo availability is so different, I know from a Wal-Mart employee in my area that they will keep .22 ammo under the counter.....family and friends are getting first chance....strictly against policy, but I am sure it happens elsewhere also. Red River Ammo.com and Freedom Munitions.com usually have bulk 9mm, 40 and 45acp available on a steady basis, .223 is hit and miss, you might try them and see ??

Here in north central IL I can find plenty of 40, 44, 45, 380, and most other pistol calibers especially if run down to Peoria. This is excluding 9mm.

I haven't seen any 22 lr or 22 mag. A lot of rifle calibers are hit or miss.

Only thing you can't find around here at Wal Mart, or anywhere for that matter, is 22LR. Ironic because the Olin plant that manufactures Winchester 22LR is less than 100 miles from here in Oxford.

Looking better in FL

I was able to get a couple of boxes of Winchester 9mm at Wal-Mart a couple of days ago for $24.95/100 round box. It was aprox 8pm. Have been seeing more in stock at the range for $30 bucks for the Russian stuff....no thanks, I'll wait.

I was at the local Wal-Mart the other day and stopped by the sporting goods department to see if they still had empty shelves. There were a few boxes of the higher end specialty ammo (i.e. ammo so ridiculously priced that even people totally without ammo would not buy it) and there were a couple of boxes of oddball calibers that were available, but it was fairly empty.

I reload for every firearm that I own, so it's not that big of deal for me. PowderValley apparently got a new shipment of powders in and I placed and order the other day for 50 lbs of various powders. That will give me probably close to 100 lbs of powder at home and 30K of various primers. I've got a few hundred pounds of lead also and I cast for everything from .223 to .45-70.

I think I'm set until we get that illegal squatter out of 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Too bad the Secret Service agents did not take an oath to defend the Constitution like those of us in the military did. All they are doing is *enabling* treason.

My local walmart has 380, 223, and 7.62x39 in limited supply.

It's getting better

The ammo shortage will loosen up when I'm able to walk into Cabela's and buy their 22LR ammo can special. Twice.
