Yes people are hoarding ammo, but i reload all mine so i have been busy but it is a fun hobbies and its winter and a great time to reload so when spring comes you have ammo to shoot in the spring and summer and fall and i can make better ammo than you can buy test it in the gun and see what it likes and then that's the load for that gun and i make my own pistol bullets so i can afford to shoot and keep my skills up! So get into reloading the NRA has classes and you can find one in your area and let me warn you reloading can be addictive

The ammo situation is a pain in the butt. I have 500 rounds of 9mm on the way but I can not find 22 anywhere.

I hope it improves a little soon.

Went to Walmart in Pleasanton TX this wknd and the clerk at the gun bar told me about a month ago before they put a 3 box limit on ammo there was a guy that bought $10K worth of different caliber ammo and the next day the FBI was at his house wanting to know why he needed all that ammo. Not sure how the FBI found out about the sale but I guess Walmart let them know...

I went to Academy in Round Rock Tx last Thursday at 7:50 am thinking I would beat the crowds and there were 50 people waiting outside the front door. It looked like Bestbuy on Black Friday! Worst part is they only sell you one box per caliber up to 3 different calibers and they were out of all of it before I got to the counter.

Went to a half dozen stores today, no .25, .32, 223/5.56, 9mm, .40 and limited stock on .45, .38, .380 and 12ga. I bought 3 boxes (the store limit!!!) of PMC Bronze in .45 for $25 EACH. Brutal.
You have not a c,lue. "they" can EASILY stop all ammo production or severely limit it. Then you can buy or own all the guns you want & use em as clubs. Use your head man! I know reality sucks but that is where we are at now. ANYTHING is possible with our current corrupted (possibly permanently!) government.

Well my orders finally shipped. Should have 500 rounds of 9mm tomorrow. Will also be getting some buckshot tomorrow that I ordered online as that is proving difficult to find around here.

I just need to find 1000 rounds of 22 and I will be reasonably happy, just reluctant to shoot much.

Anytime there is a demand for an item of whatever nature, legal or not, someone will strive to supply that demand.

Most drugs have been illegal for over half a century and its easier to get a baggie of weed than it is to find a magpul magazine in stock...

Good luck at Cabelas. I hope the store has something for you, but the odds are slim. Even online it's hard to get anything from them, and it's usually the other way around.

Here in Florida Bass Pro Shops has been out of most ammo for months. I've been ordering stuff from Cabela's online, even if it's something that's considered "backorderable", and I've slowly got everything I've ordered, except for ammo.

Magpul was awesome, but I'm still waiting for mags from Ruger...

I don't know who they ordered from, and who provides them with powder, brass, and primers, but I'm starting to wonder if the fed's massive ammo ordering was purposely designed to keep civilians from having access.

Also, the retail manufacturers say "first come first served" but I can see where it'd be hard not to fill the big orders first to keep the cash-flow going.
