    When I see S&B and Winchester White box .308 on the shelf for under $20 I'll believe it.

    I was at one of my LGS today, they had plenty of ammo, 223, 5.56, 9mm, 40S&W, 45 ACP, 380, ect...plenty of it in stock and more on the way. Hopefully. Those guys say that by summer the shortage will be over and ammo will be plentiful and cheap.

    Their pre-panic prices were still pretty high.

    Still nothing in Austin area Walmart or Acadamy. You can get all the 12ga you need and if you shoot 30-06 and 243 your in good shape but past that its go fish.

    What scares me is will the thought what if the sellers have gotten so use to the demand and price that we will see little if any easing of the price for a long time. eventuly market saturation and no demand will force prices back to some sort of normal but what will that new normal look like???

    Around here shotgun ammo never disappeared.

    I look around and there is some CF ammo but no 22 LRs at all. Zip. Nada.

    On Gunbroker a brick of 22s will still sell for $75-$150.

    ARs and mags have come down in price.

    Cabelas has .223 online today for $6.99 with a limit of 5. With shipping it will be about $.45 per round. Certainly not cheap but at least you can have some. I imagine it will be gone quickly. Yesterday they had affordable 9mm and it was gone in about an hour.

    Still tough in my area. Gander Mountain, Sportsmans Warehouse, cleared shelves. I scored 500rds of 45ACP online for $200. That will carry me for awhile....

    West side wallymart in the "People's Republik of Lawrence",Kansass, has the same boxes of 06,270, shotgun shells and 22 ratshot that have been there for the last couple of weeks. I don't think they have ordered anything....

    I went to Academy yesterday and was pleasantly surprised to find 100 round boxes of CCI Mini Mag 36 grain($7.49), a ton of Independence 5.56 55 grain ($10), a ton of Monarch (PPU) .223 55 grain ($6), and some Hornady hunting .223 50 grain ($20). They also had tons of .308 in 5 varieties. I think it was a fluke.

    I also managed to get some Winchester Super-X 12 gauge 00-Buck for $4.79. They haven't had any buckshot in over a month. They also had Brenneke slugs.

    Cabela's is showing the 9mm for $13.99 box FMJ. I bet it will be gone in an hour.

    You need to check gunbot as often as possible as the info is constantly updated.

    My local Academy had 9mm WWB 100 round packs for their usual $26/box this morning...
  15. Ammunition Is Getting Scarce

    This morning I lucked out and was able to buy several cases of ammo. On the way home I stopped at the gas station where a gorgeous Lady was filling up her car at the next pump.

    She looked at the ammo in the back of my car and said in a very sexy voice, "I'm a big believer in barter". "Would you be interested in trading sex for ammo?"

    I thought a few seconds and asked, "what kinda ammo ya got?"

    Sorry couldn't help mysef, this is just to funnny not to be shared.

    Another good report from Academy. 9/40/45/556/308 all in stock this morning. Even at 1 box limit still nice to see.

    How about reloading supplies? Are you seeing any/much in the way of primers, powder and bullets?

    No ammo around here, yet.

    At Walmart, I just picked-up a few days ago 6 boxes of 50 round Federal .45acp fmj. I have all the .223 I need, from purchases a year ago. They have a 3 box limit on their ammo, but you may have friends or relatives purchase ammo too, the clerk said.

    However, I cannot find an SA XD(m) 9mm 3.8 compact, anywhere for my wife. The wait is killing her.
