    Ammo is becoming available.

    I was in my local area WalMart this afternoon. After many trips where there was no ammo available for the last several months, today they had a decent amount and for a fair price.

    The only ammo they did not have was .22 rimfire and .38 special.

    I was able to buy 3 boxes of Winchester .45acp 230 gr FMJ for $20 per box.

    After leaving there, I went to another local gun store and they had every caliber other than .22 rimfire as well. However, their Winchester .45acp ammo was a little higher in price at $28 per box.

    A 9mm might expand but a .45acp never shrinks.

    It's better than it was 2-6 months ago but still pales when compared to before December 13th. It's going to be years before we get back to anything that resembles "normal." Just filling back-orders alone would take 100% of production for 3-4 months.

    +1. I think it will be at least until late 2014 until you can walk into a store and get exactly what you want (e.g., Remington 9mm 147gr hollow points vs "this is all we've got, do you want it or not").

    Still no ammo here in Central Florida. I kid you not, I haven't seen 9mm at Wal-Mart since the sandy hook shooting.

    I've only been able to score 2 boxes of .380 3 boxes of .40 and 1 box of .45(which I don't even own) the past 8 months.

    I stopped by Bass Pro Shop today, got 100 rd box of .45acp, they had no 9mm, or .38 sp, and 1 box of 357 mag left. After I left I swung over to Academy sports, got me 200rds (4 50rd boxes) of 9mm. Academy Sports has recently (as recent as last week!) changed their 'restrictions', the sign now says: maximum 2 boxes (or 1 box of bulk), which has changed from 1 box per caliber per day.

    So, for those who caught it!!!, how did I get 200rds?. I bought 2 boxes of 50's, then walked over to the gun display, chatted with the guy who works there for about 10-15 minutes, then got another 2 boxes of 50's on the way out. Great price too, $10.99 per box of 50rds, tho' it is only steel casing, so no reloading.

    Bass Pro has had a good amount of ammo where I am. Just by shopping there early my .22lr count is pushing (if not at) 5,000 rounds. Funny thing, I still haven't shot that gun yet.

    Plenty of .40, plenty of .38. Still running low on the 308, good thing I can save the casings and learn to make more.

    Yeah, its still pretty dry here. Once in awhile my buddy gets his hands on some 9mm @ the Wal-Mart in the next town over. I haven't seen 9mm here since last year. I'm starting to see some more ammo online coming available but its over priced. Very recently, however, its starting to come down and its not as expensive as it was. I hope the year estimate for things to return to normal is way off. TSM exacerbated matters by buying up tons of the stuff and hopefully they have their fill by now. Its a little disconcerting to see how fragile the supply can be.

    If there ain't any 22 available I don't wanna hear about it.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Cabela's shelves were full of everything, and arms list is full of people trying to sell ammo for the same price as in the store, which is not going to work starting...just...about...now.

    I thought it would be mid August before this started happening, but I'll take it now. I'm already seeing bullets and primers being sold under market in St. Louis. Looks like buy time is approaching.

    same with my hometown. The last time I could buy ammo was in December and they were running low then. The guy at my local wally world says the same few people buy whatever comes in at 2 in the morning. I don't need ammo that bad thankfully to go and compete with them. yet....
