    Hey, what are you unpacking? ".380 ammo!"

    I was getting ready to leave the archery range tonight (my five year old boy is learning to shoot) and the guy is unloading a box of ammo and putting prices on it. Shazam, 6 boxes of .380 FMJ 50 rd for $17.99 each!

    I left two for someone else. Yep, they never even got back to the shelves! Better to be lucky than good.

    My observations? .40 S&W shortage is pretty much over, 9mm not quite as much. I see 45 and 357 occasionally. .380 is still rare for range rounds but you can find expensive self defense stuff around. .223 still isn't lasting long, and prices are high.

    Man, out here we have plenty of .40 S&W range ammo, along with .380 at the local Sports Authority. Usually you have to go to an actual gun store to find a lot of the other calibers, where it is sometimes more expensive. The .223 still isn't falling, definitely buying the somewhat cheaper 5.56 rounds.
