Some, anyway. While in a Dick's today, saw large ammounts of .30-06, 7mm-08, .308 and .270... not much of a range, but a vast improvement over just a few weeks ago, where the only ammo they had on the shelves was .204 Ruger and 7.62x54R.

Maybe we're over the ammo-hump? And with the Senate killing the gun bill, maybe folks are panic-buying a bit less?

Glad to hear things are better in Florida. I haven't seen the same here in Memphis but I haven't shopped much lately. I am waiting until the online stores start to have inventory and the prices go down. Then I will know we are over the hump.

mm maybe. Not to keen on trying ammo-shopping online, myself. Not sure why, I just dont shop much of anything online, really.
I hope all this settles down soon. I'm down to the 2 magazines full for my .45, and about enough for 1 more mag load.
Have'nt seen a single box of ANYTHING in .45 , locally, in nearly 4 months.

I buy most everything online. Everything. I buy it and they deliver it to my house. Amazon is my friend. Too bad they don't sell ammo. I have Amazon Prime so I don't pay shipping and their prices will beat just about anybody on anything, except ammo.

I am curious to know if the internet sales tax thing gets passed how that will affect people like me.

+1 about Amazon, prime is worth the price considering the cost of shipping these days. Plenty of shells to feed the shotguns locally, but that is about the only consistent supply. Went shopping for .22 LR, .22 Mag, .380, and 9mm today. 9 mil is running $35 + for 25 rounds, not paying that. .380 is still non-existent so is .22 LR. Found a good buy on Federal .22 Magnums FMJ, $11 per 50 rounds (way up from the 6 bucks I used to pay, but last month they were going for 30 bucks a box) bought 5 boxes. At least my NAA does not need to be on a diet, I'm starting to re-think my not reloading for ACP rounds.

Where in Florida? Scoured Sarasota/Venice yesterday and came up dry...on every caliber!

Was in Walmart Friday and they had WWB in 38, 45 and 40. They had 9mm Tula and Tula brass. 5.56 and 223 several good brands, plus many popular center rifle rounds, shotgun shells and even a box of 22lr. This is lot different from their normal empty shelves. I did not need anything but 9mm and I don't need that bad enough to buy Tula so I left it on the shelf for someone that needed more than I do.

That's why I don't see ammo, not looking at 1 A.M.

I don't think we are out of it yet but tax refund season is winding down so the refund money has been spent. Now with summer coming the gas prices seem to be rising so that hits the wallet. I think by the time deer hunting season starts ( in the fall ) we should be good to go!

I just bought two boxes of 40 at my local Walmart for $19.37.

Montana never got really bad. The prices never went up. If you were willing to road trip the next town over usually had fully stocked shelves. One town's store actually had a pallet of 9mm.

I guess it depends on where your at. However Wyoming seemed to be gouging really bad! $30 for 40 FMJ.

Not too worried about 22 ammo. I don't shoot it too much and I have a brick left over from last year.

Not sure why the panic buying happened in the first place. You'll always be able to buy ammo. How about we don't shoot ourselves in the foot next time. 2008 was bad enough!

Last Sunday my local gun store in San Jose, CA had .22LR. It was a Federal hollow point 525 pack for $75. (Blue box). I bought one. Cheaper than shooting my 9mm or 40.

I was in Academy Sports this morning and they set a 500 round case of Remington .45 ACP, 230g FMJ on the shelf in front of me. I started to ask about it and the lady politely told me she wanted to get it all out on the shelf before handling questions. I waited while she put the shelf sticker just below it, and it was $209. Knowing they have a "one box limit" I asked if that was considered "one box". She said it was one box... I left it there since I'm still researching my first .45.

42 cents a round for .45 ACP is not bad. I left with my brick of Winchester 22LR and some UMC .380, all at good prices. They had no 9mm which is what I really wanted. They did have a surprising amount of 556/.223 in 100 round boxes. Yippee!

EDIT: the 525 22LR was $15, the 50 .380's were $22. The .223 was about 50 cents/round and was black box Federal "AR" so it was likely HP.

coming in slowly if you don't mind waiting

I've gotten some .22lr, 40 & 38 at Bass pro by waiting in line when the door opens. They don't always have what I want but to me it's worth getting in line. They do limit you on the amount you can buy. Was told at Bass that it's not the government that is making it as hard to purchase as it is so many of us buying because of the government.

Nothing at the wally world but an employee told me if you are there when the truck comes in you can get it but you have to be right there at the truck (not quite sure what he meant by that).

I do my ammo buying on line. I refuse to use up all my gas running around to the local stores hoping they might have ammo, and when they do it's at higher prices. As a mater of fact I use Amazon for a lot of my non urgent buying needs for the very same reason. I've bought gun related things from Amazon such as a pocket holster, two speed loaders, a Packin' tee shirt, targets, and much more. I figure I'll be paying tax local anyway so that don't bother me, but the price of gas does.
