I don't thing "hoarder" is applied to folks who stock up when plenty are available for everyone who wants them. It's applied to those who rush to to stock up when
a shortage gets underway, thus not letting anyone else have any.

"Actually during the start of the Obama/Sandy Hook shortage was the first time I saw more than one brand/load of .41 Magnum on the shelves locally, for a while at least."

My guess? Local shops were ordering more .41 and other less popular cartridges simply because they could get it and their shelves wouldn't look so bare. At least for awhile.

Unclenic is exactly right. Buying when there is plenty is one thing.

You have to ask yourself, who am I competing with if my competitors can't get ammo?

Answer: yourself.

I managed to snag some yesterday, the shop had several 1k boxes of everything except large pistol, larg pistol mag, and large rifle mag. limit of 1k per customer per caliber. I got 1k large rife as that was all I needed at the times.

I have always tried to keep a good stock of ammo on hand, enough where i could keep shooting/training for a year or more if ammo dried up. I found that, with this shortage I have failed to do the same with my reloading supplies. In addition to my ammo, i now plan to have enough supplies to continue reloading at my normal rate and amount for a year or better. Not hoarding, just buying what I need, just making sure my supply chain does not have a hiccup, since our economy has let things slip.
