    Where is all the ammo going???

    Cheaperthandirt, Midwayusa, luckygunner, etc. etc. etc...

    They are all sold out of 90% of normal use rifle ammo: .223/.556, .308, etc....

    What's going on??? Two months ago cheaperthandirt had everything in stock... now... gone and NOT on backorder...

    Thats why I bought 5400 rounds of 5.45x39 yesterday and before the month is over Im probably going to pick up another 5400 rounds.

    That should last me all this year and start up of next year until things settle down, 9mm ammo I will have to continue to make and buy a few K here and there from Freedoms or Jack Ross

    I ordered a case from Freedom and split a case with 11Bravo of 62gr IMI. So with 1500 sitting around the house I should be ok till it goes back or I start reloading it, whichever happens first.

    I dont think we are going to have any issues with pistol ammo, or should I say...... as much as the popular rifle calibers.

    Very true but .45 and 9mm should be plentiful out there.

    New guns are already starting to show supply problems. I think the fear is greater this time, since O is already in office that if he gets reelected, he will be free to push his anti gun agenda, that we all know he's had all along, but hasn't pushed it. It's coming.

    Look for guns and ammo both to be in VERY short supply by November.

    Ammo is getting harder for us to order from our distributors as well. Most of the time we need to call them directly to see if any is available. Let us know if you are looking for anything specific and we can check on it for you.

    From my understanding, gun sales are way up still.

    Ruger has stopped taking new orders until the end of May, their stock went up. Other gun companies stock has risen as well.

    Gotta feed all the guns!

    Yea man, even Tula ammo is dry on every website I checked accept MidwayUSA, and they only have a couple of Tula rifle round types in stock. This sucks... If only I had won that lottery...
