    Ok, same story around here. No handgun ammo available anywhere, but what's going on? I thought it was because everyone is buying it up before Obama, or Holder put a huge tax on ammo, as is the rumor. But the guy at my local gun store "Butts & Barrels" says that ain't so. He claims that it's because China is buying up all the metal that would normally be used to manufacture ammo. That didn't sound right to me though. Anybody know what's going on?

    Wow, I can't believe you guys are having that much of an issue getting ammo. The Walmart nearest me was for the most part bare, but the next two on my way up north in NH were plenty full of 9mm's, .45's and .40's. Maybe it's because NH is a big gun state therefore more ammo get's directed to those walmarts, I dunno. Even my local dealer had plenty of ammo, granted it was pricey.

    Sorry to hear it's so tough for you guys

    The WalMarts in my area all have ammo (9mm, .45, etc)... Pennsylvania is a big gun state too, so maybe there really is something to that claim.

    I still haven't been able to get any JHP's anywhere, bass pro is always wiped out. And Wal-mart is the same way. Sometimes I can find FMJ's but that's getting harder too.

    Wallmart and Sportsman's Warehouse remain almost totally bare here,
    Gun shops do have what I need though.

    This is the same thing I've heard, and I would put more weight into this than any political mumbo jumbo.

    Prices were on the rise before Obama was a candidate. The explanation back then was India and China buying up raw materials (like copper). And while economic hardships have set in worldwide, I seriously doubt this is going to impact a growing country's need for the bare essentials (like copper).

    I went to the only Walmart locally that sells Blazer Brass. They had 4 boxes, so I bought 3. I left one fo the next guy. He said they just had a shipment come in this morning and only had 4 boxes left. Other than that, they had 1 box of .356 and 1 of .44 mag. The closest Walmart to me is out of everything handgun-wise.

    where is all the ammo?

    The local stores are always out, or extremely low of .40, 9mm, etc rounds... so i figured you guys must have them all!

    at any one time, how much un-used ammo do you keep on hand?


    Ive got about 200 target rnds in my bag right now, and 25 of my nice self-defense HP

    I've probably got 200-300 9mm ready to go, plus a bunch of .22 and a lot of rifle ammo.

    Start rolling your own! For about $150 delivered, I got a Lee Pro1000 progressive press w/dies & and accessories, plus about $25 for a used RCBS balance (thanks ebay!). Now it costs me between $.08 - .09 a pop to make my own. And thats buying my supplies locally as I need them, not online or in bulk. If I start casting my own bullets, I'll be able to make them for closer to half of that.

    I have several 9mm's. On hand right now I have about 800rds range ammo & 1100 rds defensive 9mm. I try not to get lower than about 40% of what I have at this time.
    I also have some 38-357's, & 45 ammo. Of course a brick of 22 also.

    As of right now I have:
    22lr - 1100 (2 box @ 550 ea)
    17 HMR - 250
    380 - 100
    9mm - 2200
    40 S&W - 1500
    38 spl 150 - 357 - 150 (Don't shoot these much or at all)
    45 ACP -2600
    44 Rem mag - 500
    12 ga - 500
    16 ga - 250
    30-30 - 500
    223/5.56 - 2500
    7.62x39 - 1500

    I have about 5000 45 and 2500 40 and 2500 9mm to get rolled into useful
    rounds.

    No reason for having it all other than I reload (And I really like doing it) and if I see a deal I'll buy up what I can. I do love a bargain.

    Say what you want about buying guns at Cabelas (and I probably won't disagree with you!), but right now they have the Federal Value Pack of 525 rds of .22LR for $18.95. Of course my Ruger Single Six will shoot anything I feed it and my Beretta Neos seems to like them as well.

    As far as 9mm, I shouldn't reveal my secret, but I will reveal it to you guys on the forum only if you promise not to tell...

    Promise?

    Sportsmansguide has 1000 rds of Fiocchi 115grain for $216.97 (or $206.12 if you pay an extra $30 to join their buyers club). My S&W SW9VE seems to like these just fine.

    Happy Shooting!
    Scott

    Skip...we need to talk....i have been looking for that Mak ammo you have darn it.


    But to the original op, between 200-300 rounds of each caliber. exceptions, some rifles like 6.5Jap. And i just buy when the price is right.

    Now skip.... about that Mak ammo... not only do you not need it, you want to sell it (and the guns) to me don't you....just kidding.

    I just tried the WM across town. Finally found some 9mm. I bought the 5 boxes they had. 2 boxes of 357 were the only other handgun rounds there.

    me and my girlfriend went to the local WM today to get some ammo and the shelfs where bare except for some shotgun stuff. The lady at the counter told us that they had restocked the whole thing this morning and in three hours everything was gone. She said there where people buying 500 and 600 dollars worth of ammo?

    There are other places besides Wally World and Midway.
