Saw an ad on Armslist.com this morning, a guy was asking $300 for a 525 round box of federal .22lr.

I almost snatched it up, what a great deal!

Lol there is supply and demand, then there is insanity. Some people are acting like we are post SHTF scenario already.

If prices go up any more I'm selling what I have and paying off my house and buying a new car.

My local walmart had a whole shelf of PPU 223 ammo for $7.97/box. They were limiting customers to 3 (20 rd) boxes so that's what I bought. I must have been at the right place at the right time!!!

Good for you - that's great!

I checked today to see if our local Wal-Mart had started to get stock back, but they just continue to get more and more picked-over. They're now completely out of all pistol calibers, even the high-dollar defensive stuff that was the last to go - all that's left are shotgun shells, .243, .270 and 7mm.

I did not buy any yesterday, today nor will I tomorrow. I reload most of what I shoot and will wait to purchase the few calibers that I do not.

Technically I did not buy it today but it arrived today.

Got two 50 round boxes of Armscor 230gr .45acp. Got it from cheaper than dirt.

Walmart had 3 box's of Tula .380 at $14.97 a box/50. I showed my friend, she didn't bite. Me? I don't own a .380. I don't know why I never bought a Ruger LCP.

100 rounds cci CB shorts for 9 + chage at a Wall Mart in SE MI. Justified the purchase in that I can use this ammo for backyard practice and make up the difference in standard .22 ammo by skipping the range fees.

That and the fact that I can fit more than 10 rounds of it in my henry Mare's Leg, making it an assult weapon in the eyes of certain idiots.

Ordered some 45ACP bonded jhp from Underwood Ammo. The price seemed about the same as last summer ($35/50 + sh).

600 rounds of 7.62x54 from a friend who reloads.

My emaciated Russian children can now feast like kings
That made me laugh. There is still plenty of surplus russian ammo on the shelves here. Even x54 and even x39.

My local small town LGS has plenty of ammo when I was there for something else on Monday. Most of the 'handgun ammo' was the el cheapo crap and I didn't need any so I passed.

on the way home from work yesterday something just told me to stop and check the walmart on the way even though pickings have been very slim there.

No crowd at all, walked to the sporting goods counter and what did i see but 6 100 rd packs of WWB 45 @ $39 each. They have a limit of 3 so I took em with a smile.

On the way home today I said wth I will stop by and check again, and what was still there...... the other 3 boxes were still on the shelf a day later. So they came home with me too

I need to check the local Wal-Mart again, since it's been a few days. But it's been almost sad watching the stocks dwindle down to almost nothing over the past few weeks.

I'm half expecting them to start using the shelf space for something else until they start getting ammo in again.
