Yeah, where are you at in Cali? If you're close to Nevada, swing there and get you're ammo! I live in Reno, and the stuff is pretty much fully stocked at Scheels, Cabelas, and all the local gun shops. The only place it's hard to get around here is Walmart, but even then the last couple weeks I was able to score 3 boxes of 5.56/.223 at a couple different stores. I was at Cabelas a couple days ago and they are having their Labor Day sale, good prices, $8.99 for PMC Bronze 5.56, and the PMC X-TAC was $9.99. The limit restriction wasn't in effect either, so I picked up like 12 boxes.
