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.
