I was just at a very popular gun shop here in Birmingham on my lunch. I was buying some 9mm ammo when I overheard two employees, who work the ammunition isles, talking. One of the employees asked the other how they were stocked on TulAmmo. The other replied that they had just gotten an order in that was waiting to be unpacked in the back. Then employee number 1 went on to say that he just recieved a call from their TulAmmo distributor, and the distributor's representative informed him that if he wanted to stock up on TulAmmo he should do so now because all ammo imports from Russia have been suspended, and they won't be able to get anymore.
I bought the last four hundred round cannisters of TulAmmo Brass from Walmart this morning for $24.98 each, so I guess I'll hit up the place I just came from later today after they get their order unpacked and get another 500-1000 rnds. At $10.00 for 50 rnds of the cheap, steel stuff, you can't beat it. And my SIG eats it like there's no tomorrow.
Yep, it must be so. A gun store employee says so.
I'm not saying it's "so", I'm just passing on what I overheard between two employees - one of whom had, according to him, just gotten off the phone with the distributor.

Thanks Rob, I was just looking around trying to see what I could find. So far though, nothing from the AP on the major news outlets. The two guys talking didn't see me squatting down looking through their high-priced wadcutters, lol, so they thought their conversation was private. I don't tend to believe everything I hear, but when he said that his distributor said they won't be able to get anymore shipments from Russia it definitely got my attention. Sure, it could be a ploy to take advantage of the sanctions scare, but it could be the real deal too. I would much rather it be the former than the latter though.

Fortunately, the price of brass cased .223/5.56 has been dropping to purchasable levels. If the $5 for 20rnd boxes of russian stuff dries up via panic buying or lack of importation, I hope the prices of the better stuff won't artificially inflate. At least most of the people who are stockpiling have been buying for the past year, now.
This is just more $&*@ that we don't need.
recently looked at 7.62x54r M-N ammo.. always could be had for around $90-100 per 440 rds of surplus ammo..
Just look now and most places are sold out... friggin panic buyers.. glad I have a spam can under the bed

Last year Obama said he would move to stop the imports of foreign ammo supplies. I took him at his word.
I am not sure this was just first plan. Just issuing an EO would have been much easier.
When large numbers of people start to kill each other anywhere on the planet, ammo becomes scarce. It is the law of supply and demand.
This has little to do with people killing one another on the planet. This, if true, is Putin flexing and showing that he doesn't care if we cut off Russia's exports. It may make some stuff a little more difficult to find, but since we are used to an ammo shortage at this point it won't seem like too big of a deal. Will likely keep prices higher for a little longer, but that's about it. Well, and if you shoot the cheap Russian stuff you're likely out of luck for a couple of years if this is true.
On the plus side, when the market opens back up the Russians are likely to have a stockpile of stuff they haven't been able to sell since we can't buy it- so it may come back cheaper than ever.

Do you folks realize YOU are the causes if these ammo shortages with your chicken-little pronouncements of doom?
