This is so much better than multiple trips , wandering through stores—-
Good luck with the road traffic.
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.
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.
243 cases last year,had components to load no brass.
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.
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!)
At 80 cents a shot it may be there a while…
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.
So, more availability with high prices. But, this is better than no availability with high prices.
