    Ammo Shortage

    Hello All,

    Just wondering what your thoughts are as to when the current ammo shortage is going to end, and when prices will start to drop (if at all)?

    Thanks...

    During the last eight months, during this 'shortage', which seemed to be true at local shops, I have been buying at least twice per month, some months more, from online sellers.
    Just sayin' here, but I have managed to put in a supply of about three thousand rounds of .45 ACP, in both FMJ and JHP. I have also put in a decent supply of 12 gauge double ot buck, and 9mm. I had absolutely no back order situations with ATG, or Natchez. Everything shipped right away.

    At last check, it seems that both of those dealers are running a little thin now, however. Just my experience.

    The shortage is pretty much over. Even the local wally world now has a cabinet full of 9mm.

    The only thing that is still hard to get are certain quality pistol SD rounds, but that is mostly due to manufacturer policies then anything else.

    Not up here, not recently lately. I'm even having a hard time finding ammo for my revolvers which is highly unusual considering the weapons of choice now a days are autos.

    I will say though, that's the big places, Wally World, Academy Sports, Big 5 gets what I want, but they cost more their and if I go even smaller, lord.

    The shortage isn't over, but it's lessened because stocks don't sell out immediately. Wally world kept .40 on the shelves for a couple days, but no 9 or 45 at the same time. I just picked up 500 rounds of .223 FMJ (Remington 100 rd valu packs) and the associate said that I was lucky because they normally are gone by 10 am and it was 9:30. I still check each trip and buy when I find it.

    Not so in Sebastian, FL. Shelves are still empty. They get very small shipments and they are gone in an instant.

    I just(1/2 hour ago checked the local Wal Mart they had 6 boxes of 9mm 250 Remington UMC packs($51) and a bunch(over 10) of .45 ACP Blazer for $15. No .38 special(which is what i was after), nothing but .40S&W CC/HD/SD rounds(no practice rounds in otherwords). I did check the prices again on stuff they didnt even have and .40S&W and .45 ACP are both still the same price so im thinking if this keeps up going .45 ACP.

    All I can get on a regular basis at my WM is .40S&W, .223, & normally 9mm.

    .45ACP is VERY hard to find anywhere, as is .357mag.
