Haven't bought any in a very long time . Went to Academy about 11 A.M. for some 22 shorts . Found out they stock the shelves Sunday night and folks line up outside waiting on opening at 9 A.M. So they were wiped out of almost everything . No 22s but I did buy some 177 pellets . World we live in I guess . Thanks !

Same situation here. While we are approaching shotgun deer season, I have been told slug ammo is sold out along with bird loads except duck. Rifle rounds in limited supply and .22 and handguns rounds not available

Odd as was out to friends gun shop a few weeks back he had 50 boxes of 500 round 22's setting on shelf - said he just had customer come in and unload his hoard . 
 Getting other ammo though he said is all backorder so he has not even tried to order anything -

I just happened on to 1000 small rifle primers the other day at a local store. CCI 450’s
I also bought some powder and some bullets but the bullet stock was low. He had just got the primers in and said they were going fast as he gets them.

Ammo is in very short supply here in IL., too.  9mm ammo is all but extinct.  If you find any of any of the popular calibers you better buy it right then & there.  Everyone is afraid that Biden / Harris will take a run at gun owners right after inauguration.  Damn liberals!

Know of several, hoarding.  Spoke with a few as I meandered thru that section of a Farm Store here, seems they are afraid of what the Biteme Kneepads tenure will be.

Sign of the times! One Gun Store owner told a friend of mine if Biden is President all Ammo and Guns will triple in price at his store! People are living in fear! From Covid, Government and violence and reliant on themselves for protection. Many liberal new gun owners have found out how many restrictions and checks there are to purchasing a firearm! Not as easy as the Media broadcasts!

I go on a " pepper " website occasionally. The experts on there claim that you will be killed on top of that mountain of bullets you are trying to possess. In a worst case scenario you will be killed before you fire off a few hundred rounds. If you have something someone else wants you are doomed. They talked about hiding several small cashes of ammo and guns in several locations that no one else knows about. Knowledge and skills will be the things that keep people alive .Something that someone else cannot take.

Since Remington went broke, ammo is harder to find. Hopefully Vista will get the Remington Ammo line pumping them out soon. Tracy

Not only the Ammo but the jobs.
On the plus side Fiochi is building a big ammo plant down the road from Remington ammo.

Festus, how dies that sync with Pattheplummer's theory?

I just like guns and shooting them.  Here in KS I do not call the sheriff.  He is too far away so I take care of things myself such as fuel thieves and the like.

For me, it's buying some to replace what I may use practicing at the range. I don't want to quit practicing, but I really hate to waste ammo on paper targets when there may soon be a real need for it, though I really hope not. Kinda glad I was hoarding before it was in fashion lol!

Well i was going to Wal Mart today , so i stopped by the ammo department just for the heck of it.. They sold out all their rifles  a couple months back and not replacing at this time. They had about a dozen boxes of shells on the shelf. I saw 4 x 100 of 22LR ,  4 x 100 of 22 Short, a box of 30-06 and a couple others i didn't really didn't get close enough to see.  The 22LR were $7.25 a box so i bought all 4 of them.  That's the first time in a year that i have added to stock.

There was a recent online auction here.  They had blocks of 22LR, 500 rounds.  When I was looking they were going for around $20 per 100 rounds.  Over a hundred per block!  I could not believe it, especially when I open my ammo box and I have 50 round boxes with a $1.39 price on them!

I don't waste ammo, but they sure was yesterday.  Some of those guys had semi auto shotguns, or those new rifles they can use around here now.  One guy musta went thru a 25 box in about 15 minutes.  And you could hear them for miles.  I guess it was about time to go in for supper and they figured it was easier not having to carry the ammo back.  For a few minutes it sounded like the grand finale at the fire works, so I guess there ain't no shortage here.

The 450 Bushmaster is now legal here in southern Michigan.  I was talking to a couple guys the other day and they was saying there is a shortage of ammo for them.  But here they are, out target shooting the day before opening day.  The gun comes with a scope on it but the round look smaller than a 12 ga. slug. So I'm confused, why is there so much hype over a gun that has less fire power than the shotgun you already have sitting in the house?
