    Yep, there's 1000 rounds of Norma .22 WMR sitting here that wasn't here an hour ago. And a little birdie told me that there's 500 rounds of .410 Ga arriving next week. What ammo shortage?:D

    I was lucky to find this stuff, I know. It's rough out there, and you have to grab what's offered. Any other good scores this week?

    Every time I go to Academy I stock up on what I can use if it's on sale.

    I've been keeping my eye open for some .22 WMR, but no score of any kind this week!

    Just got in from yet another fun-filled trip to Mayo Clinic in Rocester, MN. One of the high lights of my 800-mile trip( one way) is a visit to Scheels.
    Scheels, for those who don't know, is a large sporting goods store almost like the Late Cabelas, they had most of the powder I wanted, 22 Caliber bullets and I scored a box of large pistol primers. I really did not need the primers, but maybe I can trade them for something I really want.
    Mayo trip was OK, but the Scheels trip is first cabin.

    Thanks Roger, I will check to see if they have any 40 grain stuff since that is what the PMR-30 says is best for it.

    Ah, I didn't notice that it's all 30 gr. Darn. The Norma I got was all 40 gr JHP, but I must have the last of it. Keep watching, though; they seem to keep a good stock on a few items.

    was in Van's south of Cullman Alabama yesterday. got 1,000 large pistol primers. they a little of everything, and most powders. Sportsmans supply north of town is a curb side only. how do you "shop" if you must call an order and do not go into the store? not a good business plan.
    Van's had a lot of guns, shelves were full.

    I was at Scheels today and picked up 100 rounds of 40s&w and 100 9mm.
    Have heard that they are both hard to find but Scheels had a couple hundred boxes of each.

    There is nothing around here. Still no guns or ammo. I am ok so far. I have been shooting a lot of 22lr. I have a good supply of that. My big problem is shotgun shells. During the Obama ammo shortage I could always find shotgun target ammo but not now. So far up here, this is far worse than the Obama years.

    The store I work at just got 6000 rounds of .22 WMR in yesterday. Not many buyers though. We have so many cases of 12 ga 2 3/4 #8's we're tripping over them. Not a lot of buyers for it either. Everyone wants buckshot.
