Hydra-Shok is hard to get? May be fazed out?
I was at the shooting range tonight and as I was about to leave when I stopped at the counter to pick another box of .40 S&W Hydra-Shok. The guy at the counter looked around and returned with a box of Gold Dots. He said that they were out of Hydra-Shok and that Hydra-Shok had recently been hard to get and that he thought it was being fazed out.
I'm not completely out of ammo so I politely declined the offer of Gold Dots. I'm sure there is nothing wrong Gold Dots but wanted to do a little research on ammo before I buy something other than Hydra-Shok. I originally started to buy Hydra-Shok based on the recommendation from a trusted friend because I do not know anything about ammo.
What has been your experience? Have any of you been having trouble finding Hydra-Shok? I know you can't believe everything you hear at a sales counter, I've been misinformed before. Have you heard that Hydra-Shok is being fazed out?
I'm sure I can find some good info about ammo through Google but to save myself some time in research, are there any trusted sites you know about that I can check out as a means to learn more about ammo in addition to the info I learn through this forum?
Thank you in advance for all of your help & comments.
