Default I needs ammo!

Anyone have an idea how long this shortage is going to last? I cant find any ammo online or in stores. Does anyone know if supplies for reloading (brass, bullet, powder) in shortage too?

I'm starting to see more ammo in stores around my part of Ky. I've not thad to buy any just yet as I was ready for the crazy. What exactly are you looking go kymike? Have you looked ni any of the Facebook tader groups? I watch several around Ky. If you do FB try a search for (enter state name here) gun trader.

Last time it was about Aug 2009 before things started to get back to normal. I would expect this time to be about the same.

Yes, reloading supplies are in short supply just like last time, but a little more so since there are many more reloaders now.

I have decent luck stopping at walmart at about 11:00 pm, they usually get a truck in at night. I live in N Ky also.

It's normally not much, but you can only buy 3 boxes anyway. I've noticed 7.62x39 and 223 is starting to catch up, it still sells out fast but they are getting it in larger quantities now.

I was pretty good on 9mm before the panic but now I'm getting low, still can't find it much.

The shartage is very very slowly coming down already..
My guess is by the end of the year we'll be back to normal.

Then I'll buy a coupke of extra cases..
Of course everyone thinks the same thing so that might extend the shortage by another 3 months

Yeah, I'm thinking about 10 Pmags and 1000 more rounds each for my primary guns and another 250 rounds for every other gun

Don't see that happening for about a year, but next time there is a shortage, I won't even notice.


Might just buy an AK too, just in case I ever decide I want one
