Any predictions on the end of the ammo shortage? Other than shotgun shells for upland birds and waterfowl, I haven't seen any of the centerfire ammo I use for almost three months.


Why don't we have time to do things right the first time, but always have time to do things over, and over, and over?

When it does end (probably next year sometime), do yourself a favor and stock up so you have ammo for the next shortage.

The last major meltdown seem to take over a year to unwind fully ... we'll see what we see, but I wouldn't expect anything good for the next year or two.

I expect it to get much worse before it gets better. I think this could play out for years.

Through 2021 from what I've been hearing. Saw video from CEO of CCI, Federal and Remington and he said they are making it as fast as they can 24X7.

Going to be a long, long time, and maybe years depending on legislation coming down the line!

If Trader Joe and Camel Face have anything to do with it we'll never see it.

If this is truly the case, we can expect the wild hog population to explode and the deer population to starve do to population increase.

You have to be kidding. One box of ammo is enough for 4 or 5 deer seasons. That's if you tag out.

Do people really think they're going to outlaw .270 cartridges?

Yeah, we will probably need to get a back ground check before we can get a box of ammo!

I would normally agree with that and then started shooting 50+ hogs a year.

PS - I found .308, .243, 9mm and .40 ammo today online in a few minutes of searching. Have 20 boxes coming in. (Buds shipped same day)

I know it's capitalism and if people are willing to pay their prices......found this auction and all I can do is scratch my head. That auction is still going and even if it stopped here, that's over $6 a round. Just crazy.

He was referring more to the hogs than deer. I shot exactly 40 hogs from the second week of october to first week of January. That’s 2 boxes in 3 months. Next year if ammo availability hasn’t rebounded I WONT be blowing through that much ammo just for pigs.

Depends if they actual do enough research to understand what an armor piercing round is. Since basically any round above a .223 will penetrate body armor I wouldn’t doubt it if someone actually figures it out and gives it a try.

The Dems have already said they are targeting guns -------------- if you dont think they will target ammo , you are not living in the real world.

Well, go stand in line at your local Academy each morning and pick up 3 boxes per caliber of whatever they have. They get new stuff daily.

You know, I have done that research and don't recall "body armor" being included anywhere in there.

And the casings will include a number that makes them traceable.
