The good news was that if you are a revolver shooter, a lot of the common rounds were the same price as pre shortage. I bought .357 mag for the same as I would have paid for the same brand last summer. Long Colts were about the same also.
Where is your area?

Academy opened two stores in the Charlotte area last Friday. I went there today and they had popular ammo sitting in the front of the store in the customer service area. They had all ammo but .22lr, they had some this morning but were sold out. The also said they are getting ammo in everyday and check when you can. They are limiting to one box per caliber and only three boxes a day per person....I picked up some .223.

I reload my 9mm, last time I ran a reloading calculator I came out with like $4.31/box of fifty (115 gr RN). But the hoarding running extent is also causing reloading supplies to run out.

I'm on the hunt for .308

Anyone know of a source of quality .308 ammo that doesn't cost a small fortune?

Well maybe things are looking better. I was hunting around for 7.62x54r yesterday and stopped by walmart they don't carry 7.62x54r that I could see but I saw they had lots of boxes of .40S&W and .380Auto which are 2 calibers I could find ammo for but not at a big box store and not that much of it. No .45Auto, 9mm or .22LR though so nothing in the calibers I have.

I finally saw some regular 22 online for sale at Cabela's but with a 1 box limit I didn't bother ordering. A box of 100 Remington Golden Bullet came out to $13.49 including shipping. Too much, I still don't need it that much.

I don't have trouble finding common hunting calibers, or 7.62x39. Just .22 and.32 ACP. Even cabelas had .223 and a little bit of 9 mm when I was there.

caliber?

in the past month:

I paid $20 for a box of 50 .40 S&W that was remanufactured, not new ammo, at a local sporting goods store. too much in my opinion, and I won't go back.

I paid $30 for a box of 100 .40S&W at walmart

I paid $16 for a 50 round box of .40

I paid $16 for 50 round boxes of .223 brass case ammo made in Italy

I paid $5.25 for 20 round boxes of .223 steel case ammo made in Russia

They had 9mm and .45 too, but I don't shoot those as much, and wanted .40 and .223. my CCW is .40 and I want .223 for SHTF. I know some of the "preppers" in the area, and for some ungodly reason, they think pistol ammo is the thing to have when SHTF, and have been stocking up on thousands of rounds of pistol ammo. good for them. Leave the rifle ammo for me! pistol is a back-up gun, or a gun to get you to your rifle.
