I haven't seen a box since this whole mess started.

I could use a case of Hornady SST 120grn if they came around.

Palmetto State Armory got some SSA in recently and still shows some in stock. SSA has some 110 Accubond too. Havent seen any Hornady in stock. Fingers crossed that the new Federal Fusion (which Walmart is carrying) will hit the shelves soon.

I have also received emails from PSA informing me of new shipments of 6.8SPC manufactured by Silver State Armory. I've used plenty of SSA in 5.56 and found it very decent stuff.

I have been able to buy more 6.8 than 5.56. I knew there was a reason to buy an oddball upper.

I have seen some cor-bon obviously not cheap. Plenty of 7.62 x39 if you don't mind giving up 90 fps.

Plenty of #7 2 3/4" 12ga shotgun shells on the shelves, but not much else...

I bought some 38 special blazer brass in the 250 rd box today. Surprised to see it so I bought 2 boxes.

I bought some on Gunbroker; all Hornady vmax for hogs. Been looking for fmj with which to plink but no joy. Don't really like the SSA stuff - shot a couple of boxes two weeks ago given by a friend and it was, well, weird…it smelled funny when I shot it(?). I know, esoterics are irrelevant and I'm sure there's a reason, but it wasn't very consistent at 200 yards either (of course the vmax is awesome but a bit pricey to plink). Still looking for the Federal Fusion...

I've seen it from time to time, but have not bought it - knowing others may need it more than I.

Just thinking out loud....I have plenty 6.8SPC, bought before the banic. Funny how 1000+ rounds doesn't seem like much anymore. 500 rounds? That just seems paltry - maybe this explains why the shelves are bare. People have adjusted their inventory thinking, raised their bare minimum standards.
