    The answer is...
    Sorry, but I just don’t feel like taking the time to type out the answer you seek.

    I'm guessing not much could be done about it as long as it was a factual statement and you don't live in a hoa that prohibits signs

    LGS’s are starting to get ammo back.
    One place advertised....

    As you can see the 9mm is about $13.00 per 50 in that 250 box for $65.00.
    Before the crisis about $9.00 a box of 50.

    I checked 13 distributors today and none had any quality 9mm ammunition.
    I have mine I was just checking availability because some locals were selling ammunition at an inflated price.

    Said during every crises. We have 10+ year historic lows in ammo prices and yet folks waited till now to try and buy.

    I just loaded 400 rounds of 165gr .40 in an hour, does that count.

    If you reload, then buy or pile up components when you find deals, if you don’t, then same thing, buy ammo on sale over time even if it by the box.

    Do folks live in a cave and can’t see this stuff coming. Even if loading on a single stage, loading 9mm is freaking as easy it gets, same with all straight rim cartridges.

    Vast majority of this was Panic Buying.

    I just checked targetsportsusa, and they still have Gold Dots and HST in 9mm, although not at their lowest price. They also have American Eagle 124 gr FMJ in stock. (April 9, 9:10 a.m.)

    The AE FMJ is $12.99 unless you are a TS prime member. Free shipping on a case. If you're not a prime member and order less than a case, shipping is usually about $12 whether you order one box or about ten.

    https://www.targetsportsusa.com/9mm-luger-ammo-c-51.aspx

    Just FYI, as 9mm FMJ has especially been in short supply lately.

    I check SGAmmo several times a day because their inventory is updated every hour for amount in stock and new items.Their inventory list is factual and the prices in this market are fair.

    I bought 1,000 rounds of Federal American Eagle 9mm 124 grain FMJ on March 2nd for $0.18 per round. Now it's about $0.34+ per round.

    Yep!
    Why should we waste our time finding your answer when we already have ammo?
    People never cease to amaze me…

    I use an old single stage and it can be done very time efficiently if you plan a little. Don’t let brass pile up, reload every time there is a couple hundred empties.
    Tumble right after the range while you are cleaning and putting away the rest of your gear.
    Size and expand ( 15 minutes)
    Prime ( 10 minutes)
    Powder and bullet seat about 20 minutes
    Using cast bullets ( in everything including oem Glock barrels without issue) gives me a reload at just under 10 cents in 9mm or 38 special.

    So far.22 ammo does not seem terribly affected. Can still find 20-25 per brick ammo locally and a case of Eley just arrived at my door this week at a real good price
