Will this ammo shortage ever end
 
I am just a regular guy who likes guns and every where I look the 5.56 and 300 Blackout is gone. I just gotta know will this every change or am I doomed to spend more than I can afford unless I reload.

It will end grasshopper, just sit back an watch the dip sticks go nuts, they will go broke buying bs they didnt need an have to sell it off to pay bills.

Yes, it will end.

This time around, maybe my RL friends will listen to me, and we'll all go in together and buy some good reloading equipment.

"You're being paranoid" they said when I said "High prices are coming!"

Really? We are less than 2 months into a panic run and already "when will it end"??? Where were you in 08? That lasted 2 years. Yes there is a shortage because people are buying way more that they will ever use. This too will pass.

I'm agreeing with that 100% robocop10mm. I remember the Y2K spook and how many people came up short on bill paying day because they over did it stocking up their hidey-hole at home. I think this one has some kick behind it and we'll see shortages for quite awhile mainly because I think there's quite a few who haven't bought up all they think they need who'll keep this craze going for some time.

Ride it out....

I never buy more ammo than I can carry. If SHTF you can't hide in your house forever, remember Waco, they burned that building down to the ground. Mobile is the way to go.

It could end very badly if the Govt decides that gun control includes ammo sales.
