I particularly love their "3 boxes per customer" sign they have posted.

It's like they really believe they even have 3 boxes of calibers that people WANT in the first place!

LOL the boxes you see have been there for months. Nobody buys them because nobody wants them!!

This keeps up and I'll have to go buy ammo in Mexico from the "Fast and Furious" recipients.

I think the 3 boxes is referring to toilet paper.

Looks exactly the same here in kansas, stop by every day to check and score 3 boxes of something I can use on average every other week. Every ammo company in the country is going balls to the wall so I want to know where the hell is it all going because it sure isn't hitting the retail market. I have a big enough stash for HD but not enough that I feel I can use any for recreational shooting so what the H!ll?

I visited 3 yesterday and one today. Saw exactly what you did. I no where near hurting but it won't last forever. Maybe we'll see some relief soon.

Amazingly, I just bought 1500 of Tula 223 steel case at local WM.
Clerk had pallet of the stuff (maybe 15-18 500 round boxes) and getting ready to open and put on the shelf.

3 box limit per person but 3 boxes meant just that and the clerk was happy to sell them to me before he had to start opening up those metal tins!

$145 each and steel-case, but hey, times are tough.

I've been doing ok lately at Walmart. I'm batting about. 300. I'm mostly finding. 40 S&W and my girl and I scored 500 rounds of WW bulk packs yesterday afternoon.. They also had bulk boxes of 9MM and my jaw dropped. I havn't seen any in months. The real killer is. 22 ammo. It's almost non existent anywhere you go. So in the meantime I keep stopping and hoping that someday the shelves will once again be stocked like the old days.
