So... Ammo anyone?

I like to rant about not being able to find .22 ammo anywhere.

WHERE DID ALL OF MY .22 GO

I know where it went...

Just like to complain about it

Omaba been munching on it... munch. Munch. MUNCH. Guns are evil and only designed to kill, you should have yours taken away.

I don't like your sarcasm. A spoon never made my Grandfather shoot Sparkie, my pet squirrel, and feed him to me for dinner.

Noog, maybe you should share some Frederick Douglas with Obama and in exchange he will allow you to gain ammo,...

Got a lucky 1500 at Wally world 2 weeks ago. The case never made it to the shelf. I also got a call from a buddy that runs a shop saying they got some in today.
I'm feeling lucky

This is the best place I have found for ammo hunting. You can search by any type of ammo and sort it a bunch of ways. I usually leave it on price per round.

Living in Texas makes it impossible to find .22 ammo... I asked for .22 ammo for my graduation present.

The shortage is from everybody hoarding ammo. everybody is scared of the gun laws that may be coming into effect in the states and buying it to stockpile it. Ammo factories are running 3shifts a day and running record numbers of ammo 6days a week!

I stopped shooting the minute I couldn't buy powder and primers for reloading. I have enough ammo stored, but I don't want to use it until I can at least get more components. I use to go out to the range once a month, I haven't been since Nov.

There is. More fear that started in 2008.

After O was elected, everyone lost their collective shit (HEZ COMIN FER MY GUNZZZZZ) and bought every firearm they could find. Ammo makers were already running at near max capacity in 2009 due to this as well as military purchases. Things never really got back to a steady-state, since there were FAR more guns out there which needed ammo (I'm making the assumption that some of the guns bought in panic 4 years ago are actually used).

After Sandy Hook, the panic machine ramped up to 11, and the hoarding went through the roof. Ammo makers have not done anything to increase capacity of manufacturing (you can only make ammo 24 hours/day) like building more facilities due to many factors.

I reload 99% of my ammo and am currently unable to get bullets. I usually shoot Bear Creek, and rumors are that the lead mine they use was flooded during the wet winter in northern CA. It sucks, because panicky idiots are preparing for the cataclysm which will never happen.

Economics 101. When demand exceeds supply, shortages happen. If manufacturers do not increase capacity, shortages do not dissipate.

Its a bubble that will burst at some point. Californians on the other hand will probably have issues with ammo and guns for the foreseeable future..... I now have another excuse to go to Vegas and AZ for vacation.... buy ammo. I picked up a DPMS LR-308 back in dec (it was in its 10 day gun jail when Sandy Hook happened) and I can't get mags or anything let alone pay an arm and leg for .308

I've been waiting nearly 4 months for 140mm STI mags for the Limited gun I'm building.

Learn to reload. With the way ammo is, you should be able to make your money back fast if you do any decent amount of shooting.

That's all I do. The only factory ammo I've shot in the past couple of years are a few .22 rounds and maybe 8 6.5mm Swedish.

The ammo shortage hits all. Powder and primers are required for home-rollers as well as Federal/Remington/etc. We can scare up the odd box of primers or container of powder, but it's a part-time job to scrounge supplies, and the last box of bullets I bought cost me $130/thousand of shitty cast-lead wax-ring .40 (I usually pay about $68/thousand for moly-coat).
