    Question 380 Ammo So Hard to Find

    I been looking for some .380 ammo now for over two months, with no luck. I went to Gander Mt. today and they had one box and wanted $50.00, unreal! I have a Bersa Thunder 380 and Ruger LCP, and I am down to 1 1/2 boxes, I love to put "Hot Steel on Target" but I have only been shooting 22 ammo because of the rise in ammo prices. With summer just a flash away I want to ensure I get some practice with my LCP. I also checked online with all the popular sites " OUT OF STOCK." I was told by a friend that some dealers won't sell 380 unless you purchase a hand gun. BLUF does anyone know where to get 380 ammo at a good price!

    We've all been struggling to find ammo in various calibers. I see this as shaking out on one of two ways. One, if all the proposed detrimental legislation falls through, there will be a glut in the future because everybody already hoarded their stock and the prices will fall. Or the worst will happen and we just won't be able to get it. Let's hope the latter scenario does not come true.

    I wish I had a good answer, of all the calibers I have been looking for 380 is the one I have seen the least of.

    That's one of the reasons I sold my 380 and bought a 9MM. 380 has always been more expensive and harder to find.

    I have not found .380 any harder to find than the other pistol calibers...it's ALL hard to find, at least the SD stuff.

    I have invested heavily in the calibers that I need, buying many thousands of rounds, but I am still buying whoever has the best deals (if you can even recognize a deal anymore).

    I am beginning to realize that extra ammo could almost be used as a 'barter' tool in the future. I want to have enough for me, my family, and even perhaps for use my by grandchildren.

    Could it ever be...??????????
    "I can remember a time when buying ammo was legal.
    Luckily, grandpa bought thousands and thousands of rounds, now we use it to trade for food as well as protecting the home."

    You just never know, at least I don't believe it will ever be worth less than I paid for it.
    Example: .223 ammo has doubled in price since Jan '07...how much more will it be in another 2 years?

    It's hard to define 'expensive' when you can't but it anymore.

    Stay armed...stock up...stay safe!

    Try Double Tap Ammo

    I just got a hundred rounds of their .380 Speer 90 gr. Gold Dot rounds. In Stock and ready to deliver last week. They have target rounds in .380 as well.

    Well considering I just got a LCP and had NO ammo anywhere, I needed some to function test the gun and load my mags for carrying.

    I do plan to keep looking for reasonable priced ammo, but who buys a brand new gun and then doesn't shoot it?

    380 is nearly impossible to find, even at these exorbitant prices. The good news is that supplies are scheduled to improve in the middle to end of April. The problem is shared production lines with 9 mm and long planned and hard to change production schedules that seem unable to cope with changes in demand.

    I sure hope so, my LCP should be back by then from Robar with a new NP3 finish.

    I will be itching to try it out.
    God bless our troops!

    i been looking for 380 and 32 acp ammo the last several weeks. in southeast tennessee and northwest georgia areas, no ammo to be found. no 9mm, 40, 45, etc... also 22lr ammo is no where to be found. forget wal mart, they are out. when i do find some ammo at the guns stores they have upped the price 2 to 3 times over the normal price. and they have also raised the price on primers and powder. i now have a list of gun stores that i will not go into again.

    The last .380s I saw were at a gun show about a month ago. They only had premium ammo and it was $1.00 per round. No go as far as I am concerned.
    I don't shoot my P3AT very much, and have about 300 rounds of ammo with about 60 being Win HP.

    Since I don't reload for the .380 I am not going to shoot much.

    Regards,
    Jerry

    A Wally world genius told my daughter they are not going to make 380 ammo anymore, lol. She called me freaking out as she had just purchased one. Calmed her down and explained don't believe Wally world, lol, believe Papa
