Re: 9mm ammo
There is no reason whatsoever to buy or search for ammunition.

In the new order of the world there will be peace through strength. You will be protected if you are in compliance with all applicable laws.

It is unwise to write otherwise.

NO.

The only reason 535 posts is because there are individuals here which are mildly interesting. A simple search of 535 may show more.

9mm... tell me who in the hell is buying all the .22LR. what could someone possibly need THAT much .22 LR for? I can understand a 9mm shortage, as its a defensive round still in use, but .22 LR...

The squirrel population should be shitting bricks right about now, as we're on the cusp of a squirrel genocide event with as much .22 LR floating around out there.

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
What about stop wasting the ammo on the shooting range?

Most of you guys probably are pretty accurate already.

Is it not better to spend time on getting in shape, learn combat moves and battle field communication? Instead of spending precious ammo - dry practice? I would also talk to neighbors and friends, buy body armor, helmet, decent clothes, food, water, medicines, first aid... Join a militia?

50.oo for 50 rounds of 9mm. Shit I thought the local gun store was crazy wanting 30.00 a box for 50 rounds of generic FMJ A COUPLE WEEKS AGO. Were the two boxes you got FMJ or hollow point.

Re: 9mm ammo
My cousin Troy is a reloader. If the max powder charge is 10 grains he has to put in 12 grains. He has locked up several revolvers. When he fires one round the other bullets in the cylinder jump crimp and move fowrad locking up the gun. Iguess thats why im iffy about usin reloads. I have some other buddies that reload and have no trouble though. Every time my cousin drops by he always brings me some of his newest reloads. I put them in a special box and mark them TROY LOADS HIGH EXPLOSIVE USE ONLY IN EMERGINCIES.

Get a bullet puller. It looks like a hammer, it lets you pull the bullet apart safely (they are about $30), and pull the ones your cousin gives you apart.

Then you can sell the projectiles and the cases to another reloader and use the money to buy boxes of ammo.

Re: 9mm ammo
I think a lot of people are "stocked up" on ammunition.

The problem is, if ammunition isn't readily available, few people will go shooting for enthusiasm/hobby/training. This will effectively shut down the gun culture in the States if it continues for an extended period of time, and that's what worries me about this 'shortage'. Let's hope it ends soon.

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.
 Quoting: Shadowdog 35582792


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.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 8397139


Give the .40S&W another shot through a CZ75 or Beretta 96. I sometimes find a few boxes of .40 when nothing else is available. 9mm is impossible to find retail but privately runs .60 to .75 a round for brass.

Yeah the brass was green. I wouldnt shoot it unless zombies were overrunnning me. I wont shoot reloads at all. Seen to many problems with them. Some people like them i dont. Ibought 3 boxes of PPU 9mm at Walmart six weeks ago. Id never heard of it but it looked good. I wish i would have bought more. Ishot it threw a hi point a glock and a smith 5904. All three guns worked perfect with it. It was accurate and shot clean. Ill buy more if i can find more.

Thanks! I think the serial placed it around 1917 and IIRC it's a .38 but maybe not special. Got a couple of Hand Ejectors and some pre-10 M & P's that are a hoot to shoot.

Re: 9mm ammo
I just picked one up a month ago. It belonged to a local cop. Has some wear but pretty good shape for a police gun. Came with 2 14 round mags and a holster. 400.00 bucks. One of my sons is using it for his daily carry gun. I dont think im getting it back. He loves it. He was carrying my early 60s model 37 Smith airweight .38. He wanted something that held more rounds. The nines alot bigger but he loves carrying it.

Ha! That's a good one! I've been shooting for 45 years and I've had way more trouble with factory ammo than reloads. Of course they were MY reloads and not some moran reloads. Factory ammo is nothing but shit when it comes to accuracy. In pistols and bangety bang AR mall ninja rifles, I suppose it's ok, but when you want to actually hit what you aim at with an accurate bolt gun, FACTORY SUCKS! Of course the concepts of groups and accuracy are foreign to 99% of shooters.

Get some loading equipment and learn how it's really done before you judge the most precision way to acquire ammo.

Re: 9mm ammo
In my area 9mm is almost nonexistant. I spend my days off driving to the local gun stores to make friends and see whats in stock.

Just bought a brand new browning hi-power for my dads b-day and only one shop in town has 9mm ammo.

Target rounds, Winchester white box 100 rounds for $33 plus tax.

Winchester Ranger Hp+p rounds are going for $23 for 50rounds.

Guess I'm lucky to find this spot. Buying what I can now because who knows how long they will be in stock. My guy has great connects mainly because he deals with LEO and he can't justify price gouging.

He got 56,000 556 62grain hp rounds and was selling them at $800 for a 1000. It took him ten days to sell out of that stuff........Scary:(:yoda:

Around here all the older Smith autos are going for 450.00 to 550.00. A couple years ago they were 250.00 to 300.00 and they were hard to sell or trade. They have sure went up lately. Ive always thought theywere great autos.
