Picked up two 20 round boxes of Independence 5.56 for $9.50 each. Two was all that was allowed per day. They received 100 boxes and I don't expect it will last long even with the limit.

Last night wal-mart had 7.62x39 with a 3 box limit, I got 3 and the girlfriend got 3. Woke up this morning and bought 3 more. It's still not enough to go shoot though. I don't like not having AK ammo around.

Went to Wal-Mart this morning, looking for .22 lr. Nothing on the shelf, but another customer was talking to the sales clerk, telling him that according to "the computer", there should be ten 325-count packs of Federal Automatch. I don't know if the customer was able to check availability on the web, or if he got the information from another store.

The clerk thought that everything they had was out, but he went back to check, and sure enough, he came out with not only the Automatch, but a case of 9mm, a case of .40 S&W, some .270 and some shotgun shells.

Bought three boxes of the Automatch, and I'm going to see if I can figure out how to check availability online.

500 rounds of .45 acp reloads (which have a very good reputation) for $190 otd.
And I have 250 rounds of new .45 acp being delivered next week. That was $133 delivered.

I was at my local range/gunshop today. I picked up 4 boxes of .223 Hornady Tactical Application Police ammunition 20 cartridges for $26.99 a box. I also picked up 100 rounds of .38 special for $36.00. I was talking with the owner and he told me that they have been notified that starting April 1st his cost to purchase ammo from his suppliers will be going up. He said that his cost for ammo will be going up as follows.
  • center fire rifle ammo will be going up by 15%
  • Rim fire ammo will be going up by 10%
  • Pistol ammo will be going up by 5%

I also stopped by Walmart and the case where they had there ammunition now contains car radios and speakers. May be this is a sign that they are not going to carry ammo any longer.

I guess we will just have to wait and see what happens.

Got 6 boxes of .40 Winchester (the white box) and a couple boxes of Hornady Critical Defense at the local gunshop They have a 5 box limit, but I was with my wife, so we divided it between the two of us.

They had just put out their ammo at Wal-Mart, this afternoon. Plus they had .44mag so I bought 2 boxes (WWB) and 1 box of Federal 40S&W.

Jacking upthe prices

I am new to this forum, but after reading this post and seeing how difficult it is to find ammo (9mm) in Tulsa, I thought I would post my thoughts. I mostly have some CCI target ammo, which is good, but I still want to have brass and JHP's. About a month ago I bought the last box of Federal 9mm FMJ blue box for about $14.00 and have'nt seen any at that store since. Less in the checks thanks to the way the people voted, so not as much to spend on ammo. Not as many trips to WalMart now.

Friday I went to Dongs Guns and Reloading and I left the store talking to myself saying. "That's wrong" repeatedly. The same Federal 9mm ammo from WM was $29.00 and there seemed to be a good supply of it. The UMC 250 round yellow case was $139.00. This is where I usually buy ammo so I hope the prices come down when the supply increases. I just could'nt believe the prices. They still had a good supply of guns but I thought there goes buying another gun if ammo is going to stay that high.

I stopped by a Bass Pro and was rather disgusted (yes, its a free market) by behavior. It was clearly a wave of hoarders and flippers grabbing everything. Guys bring their wives to load up also. So, I asked one guy point blank what does he shoot - and the guy and wife were dumbfounded by the question. She looked down and said he was stashing.

For what? I buy a fair amount for competitions. These folks are just

Yes, it's a free market.

What ammo did you buy today, and were? LOL

It is unfortunate because most people I know who shoot just want to go to the range and can't because they can't get the ammo and they are certainly not going to shoot defensive rounds.

Any Primers?

Pretty soon these threads will be about finding primers or used brass or powder. Does anybody have any idea of how long it might be before we can go to a gunstore and buy what we are used to? The House will not pass anything and the Senate has some Dems that won't pass that cr*ppy assault weapon ban bill (what we all refer to as "GUN" ban bill), so the manufacturers need to step it up. I will start buying the old stuff from the pawn shop before I quit looking.

Buy a Lee Loader and become a manufacturer.

Assault rifles may be banned but crappy is not. No need for the *

Thanks for a moderator laugh.

I just bought a 1000 round case of PMC .45 acp for $350. I thought it was a heck of a deal considering the prices as of late.

Stopped buy the local farm supply store, looking to see if they had restocked up any reloading supplies, (no). They had a stack of American Eagle .45 Auto, maybe 100 boxes or so. Bought a couple of boxes, leaving some for others. $27 for a box of 50, "shrug."

Stopped @ WM yesterday and finally found some Ammo for that Ruger American I bought about 6 wks ago. They had about 20 boxes of .308 Federal Fusion. I bought 4 @ 24.97 ea.

They also had 30-30, 7mm and 5.56 in various brands, but I don't have anything that uses those. They did have a Marlin 30-30 for a good price, but it was gone along with the ammo when I stopped in this am. I would like a lever, but I'm not sure I want a 30-30.

As of walsmart wasn't bad enough before this mess. Imma try and hit Academy early tomorrow. See what I find or don't. I'm not really needing to buy much so may just grab some shotgun shells. They've got plenty of those.
