How about a "Hey if you need ammo, check out this place," thread?
 
Post your ammo/ reloading component sightings!

Today, out wandering about, I was surprised to find that there is some .22 LR and, get this, some 5.56 x 45 ammo out there.
It appears as though the supply is beginning to make inroads on the demand.

Riverdale UT, Sportsman's Warehouse:
Remington 525 round pack of golden bullets, $21.99. One per customer. Damn, I actually stooped to buying some Remington.:rolleyes::mad:
Prvi Partisan 5.56x45 ammo, box of 1000 rounds, $450ish*. One per customer. (* I wasn't buying any, so don't ask me the specifics.)
I was also able to get some .224 bullets and powder appropriate for .223.
They might still have some Promag 30 rd AR mags. $15.99
Impact Guns, Ogden:
Remington .22 also. Only they are $4.50 per 50 round box.:mad:
They also just received a big pile of 9 mm of various types. Tula, PMC & UMC I remember clearly. There are probably others as well.
Oh, they got in a crapload of AR 30 rd mags. MagPul & Bushmaster. Prices in the low $20s+/-.

Primers are still pretty thin, unless I needed LR-Mag.

When necessary I check www.AmmoNow.com

The site summarizes all the online ammo selling sites based on caliber.....its easy to find out quickly who has what in stock.

Cabelas has .223 and .22lr (375) boxes in stock. As well as Remington 7 1/5 small rifle br primers!

Just type it into your browser. That's what I did. Pretty good stuff if I hand any spare funds for ammo right now

Online shopping is a lovely thing. However it's by no means the best indicator of what's in your local shops.
Hell, I could have just said "Hey, check out Ammo Engine today!" Of course that wouldn't really help anyone on my local area.

I just scored at my local Gander Mountain. As I was weeping at the sight of empty ammo shelves, a flatbed cart was wheeled out loaded with ammo. Included on that cart was the plastic ammo crate full of CCI 22lr they have on "sale".
They were getting the shipments in for their gun sale this week.

not sure why i didn't work the way i posted it previously but i think i fixed it...

i just tried it post editing and it went to their home page.

thanks for the heads up. sounds like i may have misinterpreted the intent of this thread with respect to what is in stock locally in stores and shops.

Found ammo!

http://www.infowars.com/dhs-purchases-21-6-million-more-rounds-of-ammunition/


The Department of Homeland Security is set to purchase a further 21.6 million rounds of ammunition to add to the 1.6 billion bullets it has already obtained over the course of the last 10 months alone, figures which have stoked concerns that the federal agency is preparing for civil unrest.

A solicitation posted yesterday on the Fed Bid website details how the bullets are required for the DHS Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico.

The solicitation asks for 10 million pistol cartridge .40 caliber 165 Grain, jacketed Hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds) and 10 million 9mm 115 grain jacketed hollow point bullets (100 quantities of 100,000 rounds).

The document also lists a requirement for 1.6 million pistol cartridge 9mm ball bullets (40 quantities of 40,000 rounds).

An approximation of how many rounds of ammunition the DHS has now secured over the last 10 months stands at around 1.625 billion. In March 2012, ATK announced that they had agreed to provide the DHS with a maximum of 450 million bullets over four years, a story that prompted questions about why the feds were buying ammunition in such large quantities. In September last year, the federal agency purchased a further 200 million bullets.

To put that in perspective, during the height of active battle operations in Iraq, US soldiers used 5.5 million rounds of ammunition a month. Extrapolating the figures, the DHS has purchased enough bullets over the last 10 months to wage a full scale war for almost 30 years.
