Default Ammo

I live in San Diego CA. Ammo for my AR is becoming extremely difficult to find at a reasonable price. Anyone know where I can find some. Nothing fancy just ammo for the range.

If you need ammo now: Good luck. Watch a few online sources for daily inventory updates, maybe preorder from someone.

If you can wait: Do wait. 223/556 is a staple round if there ever was one (no "ban/legislation" is going to change that). It'll be back on the shelves, in full force, and at more reasonable rates than this moment. Right now the idiots are dictating the prices. But an idiot's ambition tires quickly, and thus can only rule for so long.

Get a small amount now from

And wait for the rice to come down before stockpiling.

The best I've seen anywhere was on Gunbroker for about $625 shipped. Everyone else is getting at least .75 a round.

Supply and demand buddy and right now with our current president talking the way he is sales will just rise I hope he knows he's probably the best gun salesman in the country right now.

The demand vs. supply is pushing the prices.

I hope it gets better; but, the way I am seeing things, even shotgun ammo is moving fast.
