Well friends, Romans and countrymen, the ammo shortage started today. ‘Sure am glad I like the .40. Have a nice day.
This is about as worthless a post as I have seen in a while, no substance, no info, and zero truth. Why did you bother? What was your point?

A single event isnt moving people to buy anything. A single event with legal power behind it will. Why Sandyhook moved people to buy, there was Federal power, willing & able to change the laws to access to guns & ammo.
People here in Kalif havent figured out yet that the new ammo regulations will impact their ability to buy ammo. When fully implemented, it will require annual licensing, then eventually, imo, a restriction on how much you can buy & a per round tax. Since purchase point is limited to kalif, no internet/mail order, no buying across state lines, it is a natural progression to limits & taxation. These laws will go to other liberal states so best to pay attention to it.

Is this a time capsule post from 2012?

Not sure what you are talking about here.

There's no such thing as 'too much' ammo, as Kipling taught us. ***

Buy it cheap; stack it deep ... while it's quite available (which it is now, except maybe in Commie-fornia) and relatively cheap in a non-panic market.

I suspect most here, attuned to the political winds, have done so already.

The going price on factory new brass .223/5.56 was never 25 cents per round. At least not in recent memory, certainly not a month ago. You could get pretty close with the Federal American Eagle rebate for the second half of 2017 though.

That said, you can get IMI M193 (great 5.56 ammo) for .24/round delivered with the long-running sale at Midway

The largest ammo market in the usa is kalif & we can no Longer buy online, so there should be lots of ammo everwhere else.
Not exactly correct. We in CA cannot buy ammo on the internet/online and have it shipped to our home, but we can buy it online and have it shipped to an FFL and pick up there.
I have not used it yet, since I stocked up in December, but I found one close by that will charge,
$25 <1k rounds and $50 >1k rounds up to a reasonable amount TBD. I'm sure they'll do 5k .22lr but maybe complain about 5k rounds of other calibers that have a large footprint in their storage area. They also told me that it should be picked up next day after delivery.

You in CA had YEARS worth of great buying opportunity post-2013 banic to get a little bit of ammo socked away, and surely you knew these kinds of laws were coming. As recently as a few months ago you could have ordered Federal American Eagle with either 5% or 5 cents per round discount (factory rebate) delivered to your door.

but we can buy it online and have it shipped to an FFL and pick up there.

So they will charge, for <1k rounds of ammo, the same transfer fee I pay for a gun? And double that for over a case? Yikes that suuuuuucks for you guys.


Sounds like a business opportunity for a person to set themselves up as a tabletop FFL and specialize in $5-$10 ammo transfers using their garage if you ask me. Probably have to turn half of that around to tip the delivery folks though lol

I checked several reloading sites and all supplies seem to be avaiable. Checked my reloading room and I'm still well stocked. Checked my ammo cans, still got at least 3,000 rounds in 4 calibers. Guess I'm good.
Good thing you live in Fl!...in Ca, MA, NY et al, you would be in possession of an Arsenal and would be deemed an imminent threat...ha!
