Default Ammo

Is it me or is it that I can not find .22LR? I can buy lots of 9mm but can't find the other stuff? Anyone else having same problem?

Was able to pick up a couple 325 count cans of federal yesterday at LGS going back for more tomorrow. They have a **** ton.

Don't get out much, do you?

Been a massive shortage of everything (except surplus 7.62x54R) for the past year. Everyone has been certain that everything is going to be banned, so they are buying every box of everything on the shelf.

After a bit, it becomes a self fulfill prophecy. We are concerned there will not be ammo on the shelf, so we buy everything on the shelf, so yep- there is no ammo on the shelf.

Actually in my area the ammo is slowly coming back, everything but .22LR.
When I say coming back, I'm speaking in terms of being able to walk into Walmart an buy a box.

Have no problem and no limit on 9mm. But the .22LR is limited to one box per customer. Empty shelves for .22LR. I look at least once a week. So Walmart is getting a lot in?

Depends were you are. Walmart's by me are flooded with .223 & .40, and to a lesser extent .45. 9mm and .380 are hit/miss, but they do get some regularly. If you want .22 you either have to be diligent or lucky.

I had my best luck going to Wal-Mart around 8/9 a.m. I am set for now, I have a little over 3000 rounds and I hardly ever get to shoot my 22s when I do I will start searching but till then, I'm letting others get some. Our local Wal-Mart still has a 3 box limit, and the next closest one doesn't. I have the best of luck at the one with a limit because no one can clear then out quick enough.

This is part of what I got in an email today from CMP.

" Prior to 2013 CMP received deliveries of truckloads of ammo within a few weeks of placing orders. We are now being advised, as in the case of Aguila .22, that it may take several years to receive all of the 35,000,000 rounds of Aguila ammo we have on order"

Do not hold your breath waiting for ammo. I was thinking about getting a .22 semiauto for plinking, but have put that plan on hold. Is there anything that the State Department could do to allow more foreign ammo to enter the US? (Not that they would actually want to do it.)
