9mm ammo
Iwent to six local gunshops last week looking for 9mm fmj hardball. Only found 2 boxes twenty dollars a box. This is getting stupid. One guy has some generic crap for thirty a box. Im not paying that. He wanted 15.00 for it three months ago.He also wants 60.00 for 525 rounds of .22 lr. Anyone else having any better luck. It seems like in Indiana 9mm is the hardest pistol ammo to find. Still finding 40 sw 45 acp 380 acp and 38 special at okay prices.

Re: 9mm ammo
You had your chances to stock up

Once after the election in 2008.

And for about a month after the election in 2012.

So if you did not take heed to the warnings
don't bitch about ammo prices or availability.

Now move along, these are not the
droids you are looking for.

$60 for 525 .22lr? Remington?

OMFG I thought I'd never see the day.

I think I'd have to buy some just to bring it home with the price tag on it.

Well, at least I'd retain a shred of dignity walking out the door with a $60 box of Federal. Not much, but more so than with Remington.

But yeah, 9mm? Dry as hell here too. I've not seen much .38 spl either.

Problem is, with a shortage of this magnitude, nobody I know is shooting.

I don't like not being able to go to the range.

Re: 9mm ammo
You are right on the remington .22. Ive had lots of bad rounds of theie golden bullets. You would think 40 SW would be hard to find since DHS bought so much of it. But around here its available but 8mm fmj is gone. Still finding 9mm hollow point but its really high.

Same here. .40sw sporadic shortages. One day gone, next day I see boxes of ball. It almost made me wish I'd gotten a .40sw, but I don't like the recoil of it. Not a recoil wussy, it just never felt "right" to me.

I can find the high-end self defense rounds in most pistol calibers, but ball? Forget it. And .22lr for fucks sake. WTF with .22lr? All I can figure is that it's easy to buy a shitload of it for 'cheap' (or it was) and everyone just bought the hell out of it.

Re: 9mm ammo
9mm is my favorite too. My oldest son likes 40s. My other two boys like nines. Im thinking about getting a 40 since ammo is easier to get.

Re: 9mm ammo
Yeah, the only place I could find 9 mm it was $30 a box for federal.

No thanks. I've got enough for a while. I'll hold out til prices drop again, they always do.

Re: 9mm ammo
I used to shoot 1-2 times a week at my local range. I haven't gone in the past 2-3 months because of the ammo shortages. :(

I also can't do 3-gun this year because of it. I'm so sick of people ordering 20,000-30,000 at arfcom with the sole intent to resell it. Its entirely screwed my 3-gun season.

I have ammo - but not enough to feel comfortable shooting it for a full 3-gun season without restocking it...

Re: 9mm ammo
I was in a Walmart earlier today and they had a dozen boxes of 9mm. PPU for $14.50 a box of 50. There was a guy in there who was told it was crap. I tried to convince him it was good ammo. After looking at it he bought 2 boxes. Oh well, more for someone else.

Gotta be careful shooting a stranger's reloads....quality control can be sketchy....remember its all fun and games till ya touch off a double charged round....when ya said "green" I'm assuming you mean the brass was green?...
