Lack of Ammo And Reload supplies

Does anyone have any idea when we will be able to buy ammo again. I was at Cabela's yesterday and the shelfs were almost bare. The area where they sell brass is almost completely empty. If u try to order any it is all back ordered. Are we getting ready for a civil war or something?

I have seen an increase in stock both locally and on the web. 22lr is still hit and miss.

If you can't find any than you are not looking to hard. Last time I was the gun shop he had fully stocked shelves and more on the way. He even has a good bit of 22lr

Re: Lack of Ammo And Reload supplies

Reloading supplies all over the US are in short supply. People are buying everything up as soon as it hits the web sites or shelves in the store. Loaded ammo on the other hand seems to be coming in to stores on a frequent basis. Seems like the ammo manufactures are focused more on loaded ammo than reloading components.

Re: Lack of Ammo And Reload supplies

I did not buy any for a long time. Refused to pay the inflated prices and I'm not a hoarder. Recently I have seen supplies locally come back to near normal except for 22LR which is what I wanted to buy.

I was at Cabela's on Sunday and picked up 2 boxes of 9mm and they had plenty. The salesman made a point of telling me that there was no limit. I only wanted 100 rounds so not a problem for me.

I'd love to go plinking with my 22 but that seems to be an issue for now. Hopefully it's resolved soon and supply and prices come back to normal. You can always hope.

Talked to the head of sporting goods at a local Walmart yesterday.

He didn't get any .22 LR at all last week or yet this week. Said he had no idea when more would show up. But it's been more miss than hit for a long while.

Re: Lack of Ammo And Reload supplies

Supplies are gradually coming back. 22 pretty easy to find on the net but prices are still out of line even though we'll probably never see 19.99 for a brick again.

Re: Lack of Ammo And Reload supplies

just for fun go to civilian markmanship then click on sales then ammo and read their ammo update. "a few weeks to a few years" for some items.
