    I think it is going to get worse before it gets better, simply because hoarders and speculators are buying up every drop of it as soon as it hits the shelves, at least in the more popular calibers.

    do you think ammo will return soon?

    his name is bob fowler. hes prob in his 60s and is full of knowledge. he loads over 200 calibers. and hes a one man show.

    im about to have a talk w him tho, i asked him last week if he loaded 6.8spc and he said no! hes never had anyone ask for it. im about to buy one ( hopefully) and its not looking good on finding ammo.

    he is a ffl holder and really hooks anyone up charges 20-30 over his cost on firearms, and is a distributor of lee reloading supplies. so die sets are also super cheap.

    im truly lucky to know this guy!

    ost911, PM sent. I'm over the river in KY. Mr. Fowler sounds like a guy I might want to call.

I went to my favorite source for primers and powder (Powder Valley) and most of the common powders are sold out and primers for pistols are also gone. I'm in good shape since I made my purchase back in September (40,000 primers and 16lbs of powder).

    Please take my advice in good spirit.......remember the shortages and pricing gouging now taking place. Invest in a good reloading press NOW so that when reloading supplies again become plentiful (they will) you will be prepared to make your own. Before this shortage situation I could reload my calibers and save at least 50% over store bought ammuntion. Now with the prices for ammuntion going up, the savings is even greater. I can reload 9mm for $13 per hundred nad 45acp for $24 per hundred. Some say the big reason to reload is to save money.....yes, that's an important consideration. But what's more important to me is the ability to have access to freshly loaded ammunition and not be at the mercy of the retail market for ammunition.

    MLittle, you've convinced me. What else would one need besides a reloading press?

    Getting back to the OP, if you want standard capacity mags, I would buy the gun and not worry about getting ammo for the moment. Also, Wal-Mart instituted a 3 boxes per customer per day limit, so people can't go in and buy their entire ammo shipment as soon as it hits the shelves. Some online retailers have put box limits on orders as well, so I'm betting that the ammo situation will be better by the end of the month.

    I just checked Wal-Mart's website, and I can find 9mm and 7.62x39 in stock locally.

    I usually keep about 1k reloads around for each caliber I own and the supplies to reload another thousand. Even so, reloading supplies are even hard to come by.

    do you think ammo will return soon?

    Ammo is trickling into stores every day and selling a fast. If you are lucky you may get what you want it's aster of timing.
    Last time this sort of thing happened reloading supplies were last to come in.
    This is a larger scale issue.
    On the plus side 12 gauge target and games loads are every where.
    Fast is fine, but accuracy is everything.

    I've been wondering if I was going to end up like those girls hooked on drugs standing on street corners.

    You know... "Hey baby, I'll do "anything" for a brick of .22 ammo!"

    Oh wait, make it a case of .223.

    Hoplyte, I just started reloading.
    You will need:
    A scale
    Dies
    Shell holder or plate for the caliber you want to reload. Also depends on a single stage or progressive.
    Reloading books@@@ Get these first and read them.
    Primers
    Brass
    Bullets
    Bullet puller
    Primer tray
    Plastic ammo containers
    Tumbler and media

    I think that may be it.

    To the OP, I think ammo will come back, it is starting to already, just very slowly. Watch your LGS, maybe make friends with them and see if they have a list you can get on to get some ammo when it comes in.
    Also check the big stores, find out when the truck comes in and then be there when the store opens so you may get some ammo.

    Good luck.
