    Here in NW Indiana, ammo is scarce. Gander Mtn doesn't have much, Wal-Mart has bare shelves. Some places are limiting you to 2 boxes. I hope things get better.

    Nothing around my area yet. Not anything I can use for the range or SD. I have not gone to the range in a while, and I used to go every other week at least.

    I see a lot of 7mm, I guess noone uses that.

    Well I finally found some ammo.

    They opened a new Cabela's near here today at 11 AM. Since I have purchased from the company by mail order in the past I was sent an invitation to the pre-opening yesterday. I went there after work, got there about 4 PM. The store opened to invitees at 9 AM.

    I was pleasantly surprised that they had all kinds of ammo still on the shelves. The store was quite busy since everyone that had ever bought from Cabela's in the past was sent an inivtation. They had quite a bit of at least five manufacturers brands for every handgun caliber, 9mm, 45, 40 S&W, 38 special, 357, although to be honest I don't recall if I saw 357 Sig. They also had quite a bit of 223/5.56 and a rack full of 7.62X54R and 7.62X39, both steel cases and brass cased.

    The only thing that they were out of was 22LR. The only thing they had in 22 LR was some boxes of red tracer at $10 for 20 rounds and some shotshell ammo. This really surprised and disappointed me. I just purchased a ruger 10/22 TD a month ago and need to get a stockplie of ammo for it. Apparently it was flying of the shelves in the morning. A store employee told me that they had some set aside for todays grand opening, but alas I won't be able to make another trip there until Saturday.

    My daughter met me at the store when she got out of work and since they were limiting everyone to 3 boxes of ammo per person I bought 3 boxes of 40S&W and she bought two, plus a box of brass cased 7.62X39 AK-47 ammo.

    Still have not found ANY .22 LR in the Dallas area. None at Cheaper than Dirt, Academy, Wal-Mart or Ace Hardware. Would like to see some of the ammo supply return to our neck of the woods.

    I am in the Houston area. I also don't see any .22, .45, etc. Not even bothering to ask for .223. :)

    I was at Academy at 75/Forest in Dallas about a week ago (get there right at 8:00 AM Mon, Wed, or Fri only) and they had the Remington buckets (1400 rounds?) for about $68 or so. It's dirty ammo but it goes bang.

    They put the ammo that commonly sells out right by the front door, but calibers, brands, and quantities vary. They may or may not have it. I passed on it since I have a few hundred rounds already and hardly ever shoot .22 LR.

    Was in local Wally World yesterday, shelves still bare. Asked the lady whom I've dealt with many times
    if she had any .22LR stashed under the counter. She just smiled, said sorry.
    Several customers were lined up but I didn't hear what they were asking for but they also got the smile
    and sorry.

    Haven't been in Academy this week but what little ammo they had last week was at the Customer Service
    counter right as you entered the store. I didn't really notice what caliber as I'm not looking for factory ammo.

    Reloading supplies from the big online retailers are impossible to find.

    CWP instructors reporting that the boom for classes is dwindling due to ammo shortage.
    To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

    I forget specifically what websites I was looking at but I came across a few through google searching ammo that were completely out and posted that they expect to get inventory sometime in April. I think April 13 was listed.

    Re: Ammo supply update good news!!

    Everything is in shortage here in Richmond, VA also. I was able to pick up 2 50rd. boxes of Winchester .45acp 230gr FMJ for $22.00 per box at the Wally World in Mechanicsville. The only thing they had on hand was one 20rd box of Winchester .243, one 20rd box of .38 Special.

    Nothing on the western end of VA either. I'm in good shape for practice and SD ammo for a while. Have been looking for some 22LR stock. Taking the kids to the range with both girls shooting 22, we can burn thru some rounds. But I refuse to pay BS prices for it. At least for now. Maybe in the future we'll have to, but not now.

    Was thinking about the people that have been panic buying so much, maybe the surplus will start showing up in springtime yard sales
