Ammo prices and availability
 
Have you checked the prices of ammo? 9mm has doubled if you can even get it. Most places I have checked are out of stock on all but top tier stuff. Hope this isn't here to stay.:confused:

I have been getting good deals on ammo by buying in bulk and waiting. Sometimes the ammo is back ordered for a month. Some ammo suppliers offer outstanding prices while they are out of stock. I try to use a coupon and free shipping on top of the great price. I might have to wait a month but I am getting 124 gr ammo for less than $10 a box. The sportsmans guide has been getting most of my business lately. They usually have the ammo at my house before the back order date and I have done business with them long before anyone was buying anything online. They used to be a mail order catalog business.

I have the same issue.

Can't seem to find ammo anywhere.

I just placed my name on Natchez's waiting list.

Locally is the same, ammo comes in and is gone the same hour. Once in awhile you get lucky.

My local Walmart guy gives me a call whenever something is expected on the truck.

He limits me as the store requires, but at least I know what and when, without having to pay falsely inflated prices.

Sometimes it's not what you know, but who you know.

Went to Wal Mart yesterday to get some 22 All they had was two boxes of 22 short some obscure rifle rounds and bird shot. Guy working counter said enthusiastically "We had some 9mm this morning". He said it took him 4 hours to stock the ammo shelves and most of it was gone by 10:00am.
