    I went to my local Wal-Mart to pick up a few things and trudge through the sporting goods section and look at the empty ammo shelves. But lo and behold; .22lr, .223, 7.63x39, 9mm, .380, and .45 ammo! It was like a dream come true! I have hope that were nearly out of this shortage!

    all the Walmarts in my area have had pretty much everything but 22 and 9mm, unfortunately those are the 2 things I need. They say 9mm flies off the shelf and they're not even getting 22 in

    They had 325 round CCI packs, plus some 50 rounders. Also they had 50 and 100 round boxes of 9mm. It totally took me by surprise to come upon them.
    Its been a long time since I've seen much of anything, besides bulk shotgun shells. There had been rumors that some of the employees were leaving the ammo in the back, then buying it on their break, then auctioning it off on the internet.

    My girlfriend's sister used to work work there, and she told me that some people had been.

    Some local sporting goods stores now are stocked pretty well with ammo, too. Maybe the gov't can't buy any more until the shutdown is over, so it's leaving some for the rest of us.

    All of the sporting goods stores around had .22s most of the time, but it was way to expensive.

    Walmarts in the Dayton Ohio area have had a wide assortment of ammo lately. I have been able to pick up 9 mm and some 40 sw. Tonight I even saw 500 round boxes of federal 7.62 x 51. I was a bit shocked to see the 7.62.

    Wow, that's great. I really just started being able to buy my own ammo. So far I have 1500 rounds of 22lr, but that's not near enough.

    My lgs had 500 round boxes of Remington Thunderbolts for $43.99. That's just to much for me.

    Our LGS has powder primers and .22 rim fire ammo. Prices are not inflated. The "Hoarders" are broke so things are going normal. :)

    it was more than I wanted to pay but his price on everything else looked good and fair so I gave him the benefit of the doubt and figured maybe he had to pay a Lil more himself. He had 100 if 9mm wwb for 25

    Picked up 3 325 Federal Match bulk packs at Washington, Il Wal-Mart last night. Had a different guy behind the counter and someone had "conveniently" accidentally pushed 5 boxes way to the back where you couldn't see them. They have a cabinet that is below the counter. When he pulled out 5 boxes I told him I would buy my 3 limit for $18.97 per box. I don't need them but it keeps whoever has been buying from there friend from getting them. We've had a few people popping up in my area on the local gun sites with quite a bit of high priced ammo lately.

    My lgs used to sell a box of 525 cartridges of .22lr for $17.95. Now they finally have it in stock again, but their price is $49.95. Highway robbery.

    I think the last pack of 525 I bought was $20 and I won't buy anymore till they come back down!
