Last two days - Cicero Walmart... some Tula 9mm... plenty of .380, .40 and .45

Cicero Gander Mountain... some Blazer 9mm - a 350 pack and some 50 packs... more .380, .40 and .45. A pallet of various rifle/shotgun loads on the floor that has been picked through but plenty left as of 2:00 PM today.

It's not where it was 3 months ago - but it's better than it was last week.

I sure hope you're right. I can't shoot quite a few of my firearms because of the ammo shortage (range by me requires soft points etc.)

I have been looking local, on the net and in Arizona. In my estimation all calibers are scarce and price are still climbing. Funny thing is that I saw a lot of .40 sw locally at walmart and in Arizona.

let me give you an example. About one month ago you could buy online at a well known supplier 250 rounds of 12 ga 00 8-pellet Rem Buckshot for $199 shipping included for the same it now will cost you $249 shipped.

Gander Mt in Rochester gets their ammo on wednesdays and they put it out late morning. I stopped at lunch today, you have to take a number, there were 58 people in front of me. One guy had been waiting more than an hour and a half. All the .223, .22 lr and pistol ammo except .40 will be gone tonight if it isn't already. I didn't stick around. I don't need it that bad, especially if there is a limit on number you could buy. Might be worth the wait for a case, not for 2 boxes.

I got there around 6pm and the only 22lr was Federal premium match $14.99 for 50rounds

I check online and local stores frequently, more so out of curiosity, since I stocked enough for me to shoot. I see lucky gunner has stock, but it seems people are refusing to pay 4x the price for ammo. From what I understand Other retailers such as Midway get major shipments once a month, so you will see a flood of ammo over the next couple of weeks.

I believe the demand is still pretty high, most stockpilers have reached their goals, prices are dropping for ammo on the auction sites, and retailers are limiting purchase. My personal prediction is that by the end of March, we will see better ammo availability. April is when the magazine ban hits, so I don't see mags ever being available, just ebay etc.

I really hope all of you guys are right. I'd love to get back into shooting my...rifle and future handguns. I can't even find slugs for my 12 gauge (purchased 250 before the craze and have been using them up as I go to the range).

i hope we get back to relative normality soon because i have held back on shooting since the ammo shortage hit. i have a reasonable supply, but i really dont want to us that up. i like to keep my stock and buy boxes to shoot every month. lets hope this injunction goes through, and there becomes a surplus of ammo on the market come may/june and prices drop to record lows because there is just too freaking much ammo out there... i dont like to use my credit cards, but ill do some serious purchasing if this ever happens.. (i can dream cant i?)

I will also do some serious purchasing if that happens. If 5.56/.223, .22LR, 9mm, .40, 12gauge slugs etc. go back down. Oh man, I get excited just thinking about all the time I'll be spending at the range.

Therein lies the problem. As soon as the shortage eases up - it'll hit again. Everyone holding out til things "normalize". But once the shortage eases up - it should be a much shorter timeframe between restock and eventually it'll all be caught up - i'd expect sometime this summer
