My LGS has plenty of ammo, except for 22lr. His prices aren't too bad, they've always been a bit high anyway even before the panic. The area Walmarts on the other hand have nothing but naked ammo shelves.

It's gonna take 3 or 4 months. But it will come back,

AND PLEASE, FOLKS, WHEN IT'S BACK TO NORMAL, STOCK UP THIS TIME.

Because the shortages will happen again, and again, and again......

Be prepared.

When it comes back I am buying a round for everyone round I shoot. If I shoot 200 rounds I am buying 400 and storing half of it.

270 and shotgun has been plentiful in my area, anything else is way overpriced. If it is normally priced like wally world, the shelves are bare. Of course, I've bought the last three years since the last drought.

I have found a couple of LGS that I can regularly purchase ammo from.... 22 still tough to find though.

Its mentalities like that which make

Guys who bought during the madness paid too much and now are trying to get what money they can back. The last group are the ones who are going to keep the shortage rolling. These are the " once things get better I'm going to stock up" kinda guys. These guys couldn't afford th e inflated prices, but they will eat up everything they can once things get somewhat normal. Not only that, think about all the new glock and ar15 owners out there, that bought up during all this madness. Every last one of them are going to be looking for regular priced food for those guns. I just don't think things will smooth out in such little time, but we will see
Completely and 100% true.

Please, everyone, for the love of God, don't fall into this mentality when rounds start coming back on the shelves!

Right. Don't clean the shelves. But buy one or two EXTRA boxes every time you buy ammo. And in a year or so you will have a regular "war reserve."

Or you know, some people could always get together and start up a new ammo manufacturing business. I can only assume that the machinery to make primers, bullets, and cases is probably expensive (so don't look at me for capital) but it's an idea. More competition right?

I'm well stocked up right now. Not hoarder level but I could shoot for quite awhile without running out. I am low on CCI Mini-Mags and when supplies do get back to normal levels I will be looking for factory hollow point self defense ammo. Maybe a few boxes of factory 9mm, .45 and .223 to put in an ammo can to supplement my reloads.

On the reloading supplies, I have about 20,000 primers and 30lbs of various powders that I've bought in the past couple months. I would like to put in a stash of 10,000 primers per style not including magnum and then have at least 10lbs of each of my 5-6 commonly used powders. I would then plan to replace what I use and leave the stash intact.
