22lr is good for hunting small game, but is illegal just
about everywhere for deer.

it is only a step above a pellet gun for home defense.

it is a cheap practice round, i suppose.

that being said, i wonder why so many people are going
so damn crazy for that round. they buy it as soon as
it hits the shelf like it is a drug????

i guess i can understand the run on 9mm and other common rounds.

Word I got,, OSHA shut down several primer plants for worker safety issues,, and a powder company (name less) has a huge order of powder stuck in a state side port from Australia and cant get the paper work in order to get it released..

A fmj bullet company in Ne. is stuck with no copper as copper is now a health hazard to the EPA..

Add it all up folks,, they are working from the inside out to stop all ammo from being made..

This is rediculous.
How long does it take to make ammo?

If you sold a product, any product, that sold so well you couldn't keep it on the shelf;
Wouldn't you increase production=100% or 1000% or 10,000% ?

What would happen if we got sucked into another war?

It's obvious the ammo manufacturers are limiting supply so they can get more $$ and mark everything up.

I've been reading a lot about the gun debate and preppers lately and it sounds like some people are stockpiling mad amounts of ammo.. I am curious as to how much we're talking about.

So how much ammo do you guys have stocked up? If there are rules as to how much you legally can have (I dont know anything about these things), please answer hypothetically.

New notice at The Sportsmans Guide for ammunition.


PLEASE NOTE: Our apologies, but due to extremely high demand, some of our suppliers are unable to provide us with reliable shipping dates for some of the backordered items below. As a result, shipment of these items could be delayed beyond the stated availability date.

Local shop had my normal 50 rounds of .50, .223 and 5.56 as well as 9 and .22 in stock on the shelf, no mark-up what-so-ever...heck, the 5.56 was priced the lowest in months so I bought another 1k rounds....guess it all depends where you show...

The ammo manufactures are literally are maximum production capacity, which is like a billion rounds per week, WHICH IS INSANE! Why do you think the military ordered 2.5 million rounds of ammunition, they knew with gun control legislation coming on all this would be starting and they decided to avoid the mess

Just bought 100 rounds of 9mm even though I don't really need anymore lol

Check the gun ranges guys, mine is well stocked and has had whatever I needed.

I was in walmart and laughed at the empty shelves and sent 5 people to said gun range.

I like to hang out there and laugh with the other guys at chicken littles like you.

I'm going to wait a bit and list half my ammo online for quadruple the price and buy a brand new jeep, cash.

Oh, I'll still have more ammo than you could find at walmart before this madness btw.

Thanks in advance chicken littles!

Ammo is damn hard to find right now..

You can find it but it's double the price it was 3 months ago and shipping will take 2 or 3 weeks at least..

In a month?

What's left for sale will be 3 times the price it is now..

It's worth getting the good stuff now I'd say..

I suspect this is why the government has been buying up ammo. Thin the supply then announce a possible gun ban and people buy the little bit that remains.

Now they just need people to use up their ammo with target practice and hunting. I say SHTF by spring, or shortly thereafter. The supply will still be down and a significant amount that was purchased will be used up.

Walmart just informed all their stores in a memo to stop ordering ammo because there was no way they could fulfill any more orders.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 32328802


All the ammo is not gone. Not in the slightest. Its just all getting bought so fast none is sitting in stock anywhere.

Youre misinterpreting what Walmart is doing. This was all discussed an hashed out here last week.

Walmart is not doing special orders of ammo for individual stores due to the current situation. However, stores ARE still getting ammo in as they can. Its just getting sold as fast as they can get it in.

At the Local Walmart here in Northern Louisiana . I had a conversation with a woman who is a walmart employee who said that she couldnt keep enough stock cause of being bought up by customers. Then 3 weeks later , a man walmart worker said that they have suspended reordering cause the bigger stores had preference over the small stores , which cause supplying problems. They have limited 3 boxes of ammo per customer.
