Re: No ammo.....?
It won't be long before.......

All reloading equipment will be registered.....

Collecting used brass will become a crime......

Limits on the amount of loads/primers purchased.....



You can finish the list because it will be a long one.
 Quoting: DeadBeacon


That one comment, collecting used brass, is already against the rules at one of my local indoor ranges. Even your own spent brass as you finish. That's just too much man.
 Quoting: Mandi/K


wtf

Really, not even your own property? How about a revolver can you just not expel the brass? Weird.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25007716


Signs are up in the lanes, each lane has one. I'm sure if you were slipping smokin hot rounds outta your chamber into a container that they couldn't see, you'd be cool. Thing is there are cameras on the range 24/7 and all they would say is don't do that or you can't shoot here most likely. But definitely don't get caught sweeping and collecting even your own brass. A sure way to get kicked off the range. There are other ranges of course. Only saw the signs at this one. They are also a gun store and sell reloading supplies, as well as used brass cool2
 Quoting: Mandi/K


There it is.

chuckle

The all-mighty dollar.

I love the outdoor range I go to. You're free to pick up your brass and if you've a mind to, your neighbor's brass.

No more range for me though. Not until I can buy ammo again.

Great thread by the way.

All you lurkers out there please put in your two cents.

Middle Tennessee: lots of places sold out. What's not sold out has gone up in price. Haven't seen any bulk .223/5.56, just the high-end stuff in 20 round boxes. Bulk 7.62x39 has gone way up. Saw some Romanian bulk 700 rounds (Berdan) for $300.

High quality hunting ammo (.243, .308, .30-06, etc.) is still mostly available and doesn't look like it's moved too much in price.

Can't find any .22lr, very little 12g in "small game" calibers (been looking for some #6 for a week or two - no luck). Can still find buck and slugs, about a dollar more per box than a couple months ago.

Haven't seen any 9mm, .40sw, .45acp ball. Saw HP rounds in those cals, price up on those.

America is running out of .22, and CCI makes 4 million rounds a day.


 Quoting: Duckduckgoosechamp


That's awesome!

The .22 LR is my all time favorite round. I bought each of my boys their very first rifle, a .22 LR bolt action, stainless steel 10/22 with a scope. Deadly and accurate and at two cents a round, it's by far the most efficient firearm there is.
 Quoting: BRIEF


10/22's aren't bolt action...

eta: or do you mean that you bought one of each?
 Quoting: Invisible Man


The first rifle I bought myself as a kid was a stainless Ruger 10/22, I bought them a Savage stainless bolt action Lr .22 with a 10 rnd magazine.

watched a video on utube last night. store in Delaware Ohio got in some PMC Bronze .223, 1000 rounds for $550!!!!!!!!!!!
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28870983


last 1000 rds I bought was $43/100 or .43/rnd, that was just a few weeks ago...your .55/rnd is not all that bad of a deal if there is no shipping charges.
 Quoting: BRIEF


they don't ship so add tax to that price and it's close to $600. The city might have been Dover, couldn't quite hear it.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28870983


I had only went in to buy some tannerite for that day and saw a bin full of 100 rnd bags of .223, people were snatching them up like mad...I'm stocked up, but only buy what I need for a day at the range, no dipping into the reserves :)
 Quoting: BRIEF


Yup that's what I do no dipping into the stash. The cost of range ammo has gone way up though.

All kinds of ammo at inflated prices on gunbroker.com.
I was looking at a Sig Sauer M400 back in October and the going price was around $1000. There are several on gunbroker for over $2000 now. Same with the ammo. 1000 rounds of .223 could be had for under $300. Now the price is around $800. Capitalism at it's finest.

Re: No ammo.....?
The two Walmart stores I went in this morning were running pretty low. I'm not surprised, I suppose. People are panic buying and its creating an artificial shortage.

Once this blows over in a couple of months, and I think its going to, demand should fall off and supply should return to normal.

Re: No ammo.....?
Hey, what's the deal with primers having an expiration date? There was a thread a few days ago about primers going bad in 6months.

So all you reloaders need to look into it. I wish I was prepared like you people. I got nothing and when whatever happens happens, I'll still have nothing.

Sucks to be me.
 Quoting: me too 25007716


Primers don't have an expiration date. Stored properly, they will last several lifetimes.
 Quoting: Evil_Twin


Like tobacco, think humidor. Dry is good.
 Quoting: DeadBeacon


You all misunderstand. I saw a thread a while ago that said they INVENTED a primer that goes bad in 6 months. Think about what this means. It could render all ammo useless in 6 months. So, if they wanted to they could make all ammo manufacturers use this type primer and stop production 6 months later all that ammo is bad.

Keep all your old stuff safe boys.

I'll try to search for the thread or a link.

My youngest, 12 now, didn't want the rifle...he had little interest in it even though he goes shooting with us now and then, so I bought it anyway as family heirloom he can give to his children...but let me tell you, that kid can hit anything he aims at with open sight or scope, at any distance!

Exactly, or if I pick up a new toy, which will be soon. Also noticed a lot of guys teaching their girls how to shoot at the range. It's funny to see the look of terror when that first shot goes off.

One fellow in Michigan spent his fortune/retirement in the 90's on ammo. He's been living quite well for the last 10 years selling to the Militia for less than market price.

Same thing with a guy at work.

He's been thinking about getting an AR, but was hedging. This was December 19th.

I told him - almost an exact quote - "Leave work early today and go to ____ gun store and buy it. Buy any ammo you can find for it. Do it TODAY."

Almost immediately after I'd finished speaking, the know-it-all's chimed in about how I was over-reacting and how silly that was, there will be plenty, don't worry, etc. etc.

The guy didn't do it.
