No, not a caliber debate thread, God willing. Just strange observations and conversation at the LGS today. LGS had been closed for 6 weeks due to the virus (even though they were ruled essential by the governor) so they had a chance to stock up on everything. I stopped by last week looking for powder and primers and they had nearly everything. Didn't pay attention to ammo as I was stocked up, or so I thought. Bought a new 1911 in .40 S&W, which I reload for, but thought it prudent to run a couple of boxes of factory ammo, so I stopped by today to grab a couple of boxes. They had tons of 9mm and 5.56, .45 acp, 10mm, etc. But only two kinds of .40 S&W. Blazer aluminum and Blazer brass. I haven't found either particular accurate in any of my other guns, so didn't want it. I looked and they didn't have any empty slots on the shelf. Just the Blazer and CCI shotshells. And the prices were ridiculous for bargain ammo; $19 for a box of Blazers?? This store has a huge selection of ammo... They had more selection in 10mm than .40 S&W... So I asked the clerk where all the .40 S&W ammo was and he said it was by far the most sought after ammo the past couple of months since the pandemic hit. Which is the opposite of what I saw during the Obama ammo crisis. 9mm was hard to find while .40 S&W was plentiful. Weird. Anyway, I bought some Hornady bullets and some more primers and will just have to roll my own I guess. They are the only place in the area that sells pistol ammo now, so I will have to road trip in order to find .40 S&W, which just blows my mind.
