So is the ammo shortage over?? or now that prices are up and we have become accustom to paying more everything is available?
No, I think what you are seeing at Walmart is more foreign manufactured target rounds. This is especially true of Winchester white box. I saw some .380 the other day. It said Winchester and it was. It was just manufactured? The only way you could tell was the box was marked 92 grains instead of 95 grains.
Cabelas has started stocking much more Russian made ammo like Herter's and Re-manufactured, like Magtech.
The better JHP rounds are more available but prices are double what they should be.
