So the past three weeks I've noticed in half a dozen stores ( Gone ! ) I mean just a few boxes here and there. Bass Pro wiped out a big empty hole, a couple local stores ......a few boxes .....even Walmart pretty much cleaned out .
Now I live in a metro area in the southwest of 2 million ! The other day at Walmart the whole shelf of 223 .....empty .....!
40 cal much more selection. So what is going on ? I purchased the 9mm for just that reason , the long history and availability of this round world wide plus the military use over the years and the lower cost per round .
I saw this with the quality rounds of the 22 cal a few months ago . The CCI Stingers, Velocitors, Mini- Mag . I just got caught up with that now the 9mm.
So any issues where you live ? It's just odd in so many places. Yes I could go on line but the cost savings is lost in shipping .
Another reason to reload. That and I can make them for about 1/4 the cost of store bought stuff.
