    Having problems findind 9mm ammo?

    Is anyone else finding it a real pain to find 9mm ammo? Unless I want to pay $1 a shot, defense rounds, hollow points, I cant seem to find anything decent.

    Where are you guys finding the good deals online?

    *moved to ammo discussion*

    Yes, lots of people having trouble finding ammo, even the online retailers are sold out of a lot of stuff.

    I have tried every online store and almost every local gun shop. NADA and those who do have some left raised prices to 7-8 per box. Everyone has gone nuts buying ammo up. Im gonna wait it out and see if prices come down. Lucky gunner had some S&B and Federal this weekend S&B usually $12-15 per box now case px was 409 and 13 cases gone by time I tried to check. So thats what made up my mind to wait

    Yes, it is an ammo desert out there in the popular calibers. I just lucked into 3x 1000 round cases of FMJ 9mm put I've been checking 5 websites 5 times a day for weeks and nothing. You gotta be checking constantly, new inventory is trickling in and it is gone in a heartbeat.

    Its hard to find anything right now. Cabelas is practically empty as of Sunday. I went to a gun show yesterday and they had some stuff there. But the best price I found was a box of blazer 9mm for $22. I wasn't going to pay that price for crap ammo. And everything else was $1 per round.

    Find a Big 5 sporting goods. They get shipments on Monday. Get there about an hour before they open. Their prices are still reasonable, but they don't know whats in a shipment until they open the box. Think of it as playing the lottery!

    I'm having the same problem. Ammo is VERY hard to find right now. Sort of sucks, you buy a new gun. and then you can't shoot it because you can't get ammo for it. UGH!!

    Here in west Central Florida there does not seem to be a shortage of ammunition except for at Walmart. In the past week my LGS has sold over 330,000 rounds of 22LR ammo alone. Now they are limiting the 22LR to 200 rounds a day per person. There shelves seem to be well stocked with ammo and the prices have not gone up. I am still able to pick up 9mm in Blazer Brass or American Eagle or Remmington UMC for about $19.00 a box and .45 Colt or .44 Special is running between $44.00 - $50.00 a box.

    No problems here at all. Just go out to the ammo shelves in the garage and grab whatever I need! Just being a smart ass. Just by dumb luck my component inventory is really good so I've been able to stay reloading everything I need. I'm OK for awhile, but can't go forever.

    This whole situation sucks and these problems are all self inflicted in my opinion.

    Re: Having problems findind 9mm ammo?

    Try looking at local reloaders or independent ammo companies in your area. This takes a little leg work but they're out there.

    I found several local companies that still have amazing prices like 500 rds 9mm (115gr) for $100 to $120. These are great for target or tactical classes. 1,000 rds for $200 to $240 as well.

    I started doing this because the students who take our CPL class or Tactical Handgun classes couldn't find ammo to take classes. No issues and may never go back to buying store bought ammo again.

    Everywhere I have purchased ammo face to face in the last 3 months has been empty for the last 3 weeks here. I am in Denver area. I am hoping this will ease up soon. I have avoided going to the range lately because I dont want to go empty on my shelf. I do have 200 rds on 9mm on back order from Bass Pro. Should have stocked up at the gun show in September.

    I was lucky....I found 500 rounds of target 9mm ammo at a gun shop and found some good self defense ammo at Cheaper than Dirt online.

    Supply and demand at its best. If the price was $14 that box would not be on the shelf. There is a steady supply running through BULKAMMO.COM though what is available changes every morning, they seem to always have several choices in 9mm. Yesterday they had 30+ cases of target grade 9mm at decent prices, but today it is just several choices in JHP rounds. If you must have it now, it is available but it is best to stock up when supply is plentiful for best pricing.

    People see an empty shelf and panic. When new supplies arrive they buy to hoard, simply because the shelf was empty last week. So now the shelf in empty again, and the next guy gets in the same mode.

    Stores are getting ammo all the time, yes it is busy, and sometimes inconvenient, but there is still pleanty, the hoarders are the problem.

    We go to the range about 2x a week, one at a minimum, and if available buy to replace what I shoot. If they are out, I'll buy enough to cover both trips. A little planning, like driving through deserted countryside where gas stations are far and few, a little planning, a little in reserve is all that is needed.

    JHP for SD, got 25 - 50 for each gun, and hopefully that will last a long long time.
