After going to Walmart 2 times this week we stopped in so my wife could get an item she wanted for the kitchen. I happened to go by the ammo section and found this. I bought 2 and the wife bought the other 2.

I don't have to go looking for factory ammo, I have several boxes of each caliber I shoot, And I have several Metal .50 cal Ammo cans full ofmy reloads. The only Factory Ammo I would be in the Market for is .22lr. No place close has it in stock.

I bought 3 boxes of Federal Automatch for the same price as you did last Friday, and they had 3 more boxes that I went back to get on Saturday but they are gone.

So, it seems Walmart is able to get a little bit of it, and keeping the price pretty good too. My local Academy is not getting any decent ammo and it's prices have skyrocketed. They are not getting anything at all from Federal for any calibers.

Just purchased 500 CCI Stingers off of the CCI WEB-Sight. They are not cheap
I noticed Federal & CCI website that sell ammo are high priced. They seemed to join the LGS selling on the auction sites to sell overpriced ammo. This is just prolonging this shortage so they can maximize profits.

Terrible situation.

I guess that we can just blame covid...... while a LOT of people not just ammo dealers keep raising prices up and up.

We have two garage doors and have to finish our small bathroom and we're done. It wasn't too bad in 2018 and 2019 -but- 2020/21 have been unreal.

How long will people hoard ammo now ?

The magnums I bought on the CCI website went up $1.00 right after I bought them. Gouging at its best!

Wow. Manufacturers gouging.

This is the same thing as the auto manufacturers selling cars direct to the consumers. The dealers would soon go out of business. If you go to your LGS to buy ammo you need to bid with people across the entire country to get anything. So much for supporting local business.

Looks as if handguns are starting to stack up at the gun stores again. You only need so many plastic handguns. Next year it could be ammo also. Before this shortage, they couldn't give this stuff away. Ammo and guns sales were way down. This is called forward selling. My bet is next year gun and ammo sales will be way down again.

The big box stores tell you to go see your LGS who might have some. Your LGS says go to the big box store for ammo. They both must have stock in the petroleum industry, because if you believe their BS you just drive around in circles!
