    Made a stop at Bass Pro in Springfield, Mo. today and saw more ammo than I have seen in a year. Didn't need any so I didn't buy any, but you might want to check it out if you are in the area.

    I am starting to see a lot more ammo in stock at my LGSs as well.

    The Bass Pro here in town is 10-15% more expensive than pretty much anyone else in town on everything. I will only go there as a last resort.

    I finally saw prices start to drop at my local Academy today. The first sale sticker in years. 223 is starting so stack up on shelves here so prices may start to drop soon.

    Cabela’s League City TX has plenty of 223 & 308, not much else. Same at Academy. I didn’t pay any attention to pistol ammo.

    Just ordered a 500-rd. case of centerline rifle ammo….online. And there was no sales tax.

    This is so much better than multiple trips , wandering through stores—-

    Good luck with the road traffic.

    I've been buying almost all of my ammo online. I go to AmmoSeek, find the best listed price for what I'm looking for and it shows up at my door. No running from LGS to LGS trying to find the best price for ammo, dealing with traffic and crazy drivers. Occasionally I'll pick up ammo at my preferred LGS but they don't carry everything I want ammo wise.
    We have maybe two dozen local dealers here and in the immediate surrounding area not to include the big box stores which I tend to avoid if I can.

    many of the NATO and common stuff is out there. Still can't find .38 or .357, .3030, or .243

    BassPro in central Texas had CCI SPPs. Looks like they stocked on a Friday night and I happened to be there. Pure luck. Bad price at $79.99 but no hazmat.

    Ammo prices are so terrible there I didn’t even look close at anything. Lots on the shelves though. Academy prices are way better but BassPro used to price match so that might be worth trying.

    CCI SPP or SRP seem to be readily available in the Metroplex right now, always at least one major retailer with them.

    Prices are "high" at $7.99 a tray, but realistically I don't know that we can expect significantly lower prices at any foreseeable point in the future.

    I think BP's recent price jump on their CCI SPP's from $65 to $80 might have more to do with them being there on a Friday night than luck.

    Most gun shops I have stopped in are gaining on ammo inventory. Not much hunting ammo, but if you yoy need 9mm or 5.56 they may have it. Prices are also coming down some. I don't think we will 2019 Prices ever again:(

    The Bass Pro in my town has a little of a lot, and scads of stuff in .40S&W. I'm already well set, and would be even more if I had any guns in that caliber.

    The other day, I went three counties north to another BP store that I like a bit more, just for the drive, really. Actually forgot to even look at the ammunition rack, as I got caught up in a game of hide-and-seek with my 13-year old daughter in there (there are a LOT of places in a Bass Pro store a limber, 13-year old gymnast can fit!) ;)

    I've found a large amount of 380 ACP FMJ the last time I was at Bass Pro

    At 80 cents a shot it may be there a while…

    Stay safe.

    I can get all of the FMJ 9mm and 223 I can use just about anywhere now at reasonable prices. Relatively speaking. 45ACP, 357 mag and 40 S&W are usually on the shelf, but in limited amounts. 22 RF is in most places. I see some 350 Legend on shelves in some places. About the only 308 I see is FMJ, but it is there. There are limited amounts of SD handgun ammo. Usually in small 20-25 round boxes, and priced extremely high.

    What I'm not seeing is typical hunting loads in any of the common cartridges. I'm afraid some of the guys who don't handload and use less common hunting cartridges such as 35 Rem, 257R, 7X57, etc., may be out of luck for a while.

    All of the above is in small local shops. I'm about 1 hours drive from the northern suburbs of Atlanta or to Chattanooga. In between are some bigger stores such as BPS, Cabela's, and Sportsman's Warehouse, and Academy Sports. They don't have anything I can't get locally.

    My local Bass Pro (SC) had small rifle primers on the shelf yesterday. The first time since March of 2020... They were 7.99 a sleeve limit of 5. And yes I picked up 5. They also had subsonic 22LR for 12 cents a round. Limit of 1 box of a 100.

    So, more availability with high prices. But, this is better than no availability with high prices. :)
