Have seen .38 and .357 Mag some lately.
.380 has started to slowly trickle back.
9mm can be had.
.40 is almost always in stock even during the height of the current ammo panic.
I have not seen .45 in ages though.
Why Ike, whatever do you mean? Maybe poker's just not your game Ike. I know! Let's have a spelling contest!
In Wal-Mart last night, they had multiple boxes of 100 pack WWB. About 32.00 a box. I was fairly surprised at how much they had in various
calibers. I might go back today just to get an idea of just how fast people buy this stuff. Of course I didn't leave without my fair share.
Don't believe what you hear and only half of what you see!
I'm looking at about 900 rounds of WWB .38 special in my walmart ammo case right now. 100 round boxes, 31.97 a box.

One week I have it the next week I'm out. Get it while it lasts.
Right now I'm waiting on a delivery of small arms primers. I was asked what brand. I said I would take whatever I can get.

Anyway, he has stayed pretty well stocked with primers and powder throughout this mess. I don't know who his distributor is. His prices are 2 or 3 dollars higher than say Cabelas or Midway, but still good figuring I dont have to drive to Cabelas (1 hr) or pay shipping.
He was occasionally out of one type or another on and off for a couple months, but he usually has them. Last time he got small rifle in he could only get Wolf, but I just grabbed a carton of 1000 while the gettin was good you know.
I don't use but about 2000 or so pistol and 200 - 300 rifle per year, so I just keep my open case and one spare. When I have to open the spare, I replace it with another. So even when he was out, I had some on hand and could afford to wait until he got some in. Fortunately I never ran out. It also helps that I have plenty of loaded amo stored up, so I can go for lengthy periods without reloading if necessary.
I did cut back on shooting for a coupe months when the shortages were real bad though, for fear that i may use up all my stuff.
