I've been hearing that it's hard to get ammo, and I've heard this before, but I've never actually seen it.  My friend, who is an equine dentist asked me if I wanted to go with him to Cabella's in Austin.  I figured it would be fun, plus I wanted to stock up on ammo, for obvious reasons. We got to Cabella's and I'll be dam*ed.  They had nothing other than some shotgun shells.  Nothing. Nothing for handguns or rifles except a few boxes of 300 mag.   I've never seen this before in my life.  Not like this.  Oh, realistically, I'm sure I have plenty of ammo, but this is some spooky stuff.  It's not going to get better for a while folks.

They've limited it to 3 boxes per person out here. We've learned that they get trucks in 3xs a week and there is typically an hour or more wait in line to get in on those days. If you're not there early AM to line up, you won't get any... period. We stocked up when we could but its unsettling to not be able to just go buy it when you want, like it use to be. My husband is a truck driver and he often checks in other cities on his routes , if he can get it, he does. He got lucky a few weeks ago when he dropped off at a Bass Pro and I told him to get all you can while they were unloading his truck. We went ahead and stocked up on shot gun shells as well ... because who knows when that'll be a thing...  I go into town once a week and grab a case while I'm there.

I shoot handgun compitition and during the shooting season my regular practice burns up about 200 rounds of 45acp per week or more. I have cut way back on practice days trying to keep a good supply on hand. It certainly has gotten worse. It was already bad in California since it is no longer legal to have ammunition shipped directly to your house. I buy for my other guns when I find it, but that ammo has certainly dried up too.

Well I'm sure I have plenty, in reality....I just wanted more.   This is worse than the toilet paper shortage.

Yes, it's lousy trying to get much in person.  Best bet is to order it from online.

 

During Iowa deer season it was next to impossible to find slugs.

I got a .38 special for Christmas. I would like to go shoot it and get more comfortable with a small gun but I hate to run through the ammo I do have. 

I've heard a few people say no matter what party wins ammo is always hard to find the 1st year after an election.

Ammo has been difficult to source for the last two to three years. Hence, One buys whatever is available when it is available.

During Obama's first term, it was easier to pull teeth than find ammo..........

Is it a supply problem, or just hoarding? Both?  It won't get easier from here on out.

Reloads.  Supplies have not been decimated, shipping is a bit slow. 

Our motto never let a casing be used only once.  If you leave your brass at the shooting range reloaders are going to get them.

We have plenty (as in enough for us), A neighbor calls everytime he gos to town to shop for shells and takes a order form Andy and then he brings them out here. I think the Ammo has gotton in high demand once Obama took office, hes been the best salesman for guns and Ammo then anybody else. Now Biden will take that place, lol.

Reloading your spent shell casings is simple. Gunpowder and primers are affordable, and rather than use lead projectiles for target practice, I use zinc. Casting bullets is simple, and there are lots of companies that sell moulds. There are lots of YouTube videos on this topic.
