Market correction. People aren't currently panicking and hoarding. Gun sales are down by 7.5% this year as well. Once I see lots of 9mm and .22LR on the shelves at pre panic prices, I'd say the market is back to normal.

This, along with the fact that Summer is an inherently slow time of year in the firearms industry. Now if we can just get 22 LR to drop to reasonable levels..

Except for .22 ammo the ammunition crisis is mostly over. There is actually a glut of certain calibers.

I can pick up all the .223 ammo I want at pre-panic prices. Have been able to do so for months.

9mm is still a little hard to find. Easy if you're looking for SD rounds, but range fodder can still be uncommon. Still, I pick up a box here and there where I can.

The only thing, aside from .22, that is scarce are bulk packs. Still not seeing a ton of anything in large bulk. There are plenty of Russian spam cans, but other brands are still just starting to show up on the shelves.

Stock up while you can get it at decent prices. I can find and shoot 9x19 cheaper than 22 mag. 9mm is as low as 20 cents a round. It does not pay to reload for that. That is why I want a 9mm single shot rifle. I would not mind a PC9 or Camp 9 but they are scarce and pricey. Not too hot on the tactical style carbines. 38spl still pays as it is running about 28 cents and up. I do have H&R rifle for 38/357.

Ammo availability in certain calibers has ebbed and flowed over the last few years. Those of us who have many calibers have been able to make do and find something to use but this problem with 22LR is getting very old now. I built up a large supply over the years but will be running on fumes if things don't look up.
