    Ammo Shortage?

    Just wondering if everyone is expierencing ammo shortage? My cousin is a certified instructor for concealed carry classes. We are giving a class today & we let everyone that wants to qualify with an auto shoot our 22's. You can not buy 22 shells within 50 miles of my house right now. All the ammo has been picked over. Wal-mart has a sign that limits 2 boxes per customer. Not sure what is going on with that yet. Anyway just curious, have a good day!

    That and the reelection of a Democratic president. Soon as the election was decided, the industry became swamped with buyers.

    I figured the shootings & the election had the ammo sold out. I was referring to the two limit box of shells per customer. I'm assuming Wal-Mart took it up on themselves to do that?

    Same thing happened 4 years ago when Obama was elected the first time. Doesn't take much for the hoarders to think they don't have enough stockpiled yet. Same thing will (or is) happen to reloading components. Black style rifles are already gone.

    Most ammo is backordered. The local gunshops around here say they can't order any ARs or aren't confident that their AR orders will come in. It's a buying frenzy out there.

    Other than rimfire, I reload everything. I try to keep plenty of components on hand. I have around 20,000 primers (shotgun, sm & lg pistol, sm & lg rifle), probably 30,000 bullets and 500# of shot. Lots of wads too. I am down to about 2,000 (4 bricks) of .22 target ammo. Might seem like a lot, but I shoot in a BullsEye Pistol league every week, shoot in a Cowboy Action match almost every week and practice 2 or 3 days a week. I shoot about 2000 rounds a week.
    Leaving Tuesday for a regional Cowboy Action Shoot in Az, there will be 250+ shooters there for 3 days shooting.
