    It seems with all the price gouging, panic buying from events of late just getting some of the reg. stuffs is now a challenge if you can find it at all !!

    Every LGS i go to up this way,(which is 3or so) has the same wide eyed, hands in the air answer, "I cant even order it!, What you see in the store is what we got"!

    If you can find what your lookin for how long is the ship?4-6weeks avr.?

    Annnyway i just got back from one of my usuall trips with a 500count box of .45 SWC lead heads for 50bux! For me that was a score n a half!:cool:

    So lets hear Your Score...

    A friend gave me some 308 Win, cases and some 180 gr RN bullets. I seldom use anything heavier than 150's but I will shoot 'em. Now If my .308 dies will come in. They've been on order for about 3 weeks, I'm using borrowed dies now.
    Another friend gave me 11 rounds of Winchester factory .303 Brit. Can't have too much ammo. Each round counts.

    I bought four boxes of WWB .45acp 50 count boxes for $22. And I dont even own a .45 yet. But I will in a few weeks. So I picked up a couple boxes when I found them.

    The wife and I went into wall mart Saturday before last. To my surprise they had 5 boxes of 100 cnt federal 9mm fmj for $21.97 each and 19 boxes of 50 count 223 for $13.67. When I asked the lady if my wife and I could get 3 of each she said you can get it all if you want it. I looked at my wife and said, honey go get a buggy. I started not to buy all of it but figured if I didn't the next guy would. I felt like I had just won the lottery.

    A shopping cart "buggy". I looked at my receipt and the 223 was 16.27 not 13 .97. Still pretty good.

    My LGS has plenty of ammo but he is charging double the normal price for it. Finding ammo for me is not too difficult, finding it at a price I can swallow is another thing altogether. I don't mind paying a slightly higher price but I refuse to pay double.

    I ordered 500 rounds of 9mm from an online source which will arrive today. Paid $14 a box. I have plenty of shotgun shells for now but 22 is proving very difficult to find even online.

    The most frustrating thing about it is that I want to go to the range really bad but I won't go until I can replace the ammo I shoot.
