where can I get some 9mm ammo?

Any leads on who's got it in stock for fair prices?

Cope's Distributing has Aguila by the case for $340 + shipping.

SG Ammo....

I looked on www.SGammo.com , a good site I used in the past. They had also no 9x19mm/9mm Luger caliber rounds at all!
I'd check around. www.midwayusa.com www.cabelas.com www.gilbertsguns.com www.brownells.com www.natchezss.com www.shopcorbon.com .
BTW: for defense/duty, I'd get the new Critical Duty 135gr +P, the DPX or PowRball, the Ranger T 127gr +P+ JHP, or Speer Gold Dot 124gr +P JHP.

Clyde
PS; in spare or extra mags, I'd use Federal Guard Dog, PowRball or Ranger T NATO ball/FMJ. It feeds smooth & may help you if JHPs don't work.

I was in Wally World yesterday and the guy in front of me asked the clerk to check on WWB 9mm. None in stock and none in the warehouse. He checked stores in ME/NH and Sanford ME had two boxes left.

I heard today that my local police supply store is selling 9mm but only 3 boxes at a time. That might be a pretty fair way to do it really. Everyone can get something. They haven't raised price on ammo either. But...they have a terribly inefficient checkout system and I don't want to stand in line for 30 minutes for 3 boxes. I might just order a case online if I can get free shipping and a price I can live with.

Just checked 2 of my local stores that usually have 9mm in stock and they are completely wiped out of everything. They had a decent supply when I was there on Christmas Eve, but nothing now.

I just ordered some Winchester Nato 9mm from Cabelas the day before yesterday. They had it for $16.99 a box plus free shipping on orders over $49.00 with a coupon code. The code was 2Rewards.

Hornady website message...

Hornady has a message in the main website that ammunition may be low due to increased demand since 2009. They say the company has work shifts around the clock & they are working with the vendors to get as many products put together as fast as they can.
I'd buy up any training or carry rounds for the next 2 years or so.
