Here in Washington, at least my part, you are still limited to a few boxes a day. Almost all pistol calibers have bare shelfs, but plenty of rifle to be found.

Local cabellas has crates and big boxes of 7.62 and .223. However, even with this huge supply, they limit you to a few a day.... Feel like such a criminal when I buy there.

Pro Tip: hold your money- dont get pressured into buying

I have not bought a single round of factory ammo since this whole mess started. I have a nice reloading stash I won't worry about factory fodder until prices come back down to earth.

I try to replace what I shoot. The "limit thing" is a killer to buying online - adds way too much to the per round cost. I do understand though that there are still ammo hoarder/pigs around.Wish we had a Cabellas near here.

So, in your value system, anyone that had enough common sense to buy extra ammo after the shortages of 1994 and 2008 is an ammo hoarding pig???

If I have an IRA or a 401K am I a "money hoarding pig?"

And I guess that 50 gallon drum of diesel that I keep for my emergency generator makers me a "fuel hoarding pig??"

That is a very petty conclusion and has nothing to do with my "value system." If you decide to leap to these kinds of conclusions/things, use PM or please stick to the subject and in the context of the post.

ADDED: By the way, there is a BIG difference between ammo hoarder/pigs and stocking up. I think you really know the difference and what I mean.

I won't see the light at the end of the tunnel until I can find 4064 and Varget, maybe some primers and 150gr Game Kings while I am dreaming

The primers were purchased at cabela's. they had a limit of 2,000, I took one brick since i had a thousand at home i had purchased a couple weeks back. Stopped at my LGS and the bullets had just been delivered, no limit. I took two boxes.
