    Ammunition supply

    In yet another sign of the impending Apocalypse, I walked into my local Wal-Mart here is semi-rural Phoenix and bought 50 rounds of Winchester .223 for $27.00. Perhaps supply is finally catching up with demand. How about anyone with their finger similarly on the pulse of things post here with latest observations. I'm sure everyone would appreciate it.

    Ammunition still costs about double of what it did this time a year ago. Many calibers are still hard to find in the most desirable calibers especially in bulk. Perhaps, in another half year things will get closer to normal? Or is this the new normal?

    Over here, a few weeks back I started getting bricks at a "reasonable" price : around 15/16 for 9mm, ~20 for 45 acp and 40 S&W, 17/19 for 38 spl

    Still higher than what it used to be, but definitely more affordable than in the past few months

    Ugh...everything is still so much more expensive than 2 years ago. I went to the range maybe twice over the last year, partially because of the high price of ammo. I have enough for a short while if World War Z hits. But I would definitely want more.

    Maybe you would have more time and money if you ditch that new yellow toy of yours

    It's a joke. I'll remember to dumb it down in the future.

    "Apocalypse" When you can't even find a brick of .22 on the shelves and if you do they want far more than the $12.00 that it is worth.


    Sooner or later legitimate hunters are going to snap as the price and availability of even common hunting ammo is ridiculous.

    There always options, you can load your own ammo, go black power or .... crossbows anyone?

    I don't think you can reload .22LR. Can't legally hunt with a crossbow in most states either. This time of year the land is pretty dry...use black powder at your own risk.

    Sooner or later the people hoarding the ammo are going to run out of money...even the government. I will be ready when that happens. My guess will be Sunday March 19, 2017.

    Amazing, it's illegal to hunt with a crossbow but any buffoon can walk into Walmart and buy a high powered semi-automatic 'hunting' rife. What are the authorities afraid of, a mass arrowing?
