    Found a site that had a small amount of 9mm in stock. Each brand was restricted to one box per customer so I ordered 3 different brands. $85 got me 150 rounds. Used to get 200 rounds for half that cost. I hope this ammo shortage and price gouging ends soon.

    I've been buying the Geco 115 gn (pictured in the white box) at work. Our price is $14.00 a box, same as always. Usually get a couple a day, 4 or 5 times a week. Norma 115 gn JHP is available too, 20 rounds per box for $18.00. Not a lot of people buying it though. Too expensive for them. Lot of complaining because we don't have "bulk" 9mm. They want 500 rounds for $50.00, and of course, it's our fault they can't get it.

    I sold my reloader when we moved. We had to downsize quite a bit to make the move feasible. :(

    I don't know if that's good or bad but sure glad you got some ammo. Ya oughta see what $85.00 gets you if you cast and load your own. It's a heck of a lot more than 150 rounds.

    Oooo...you posted that as I was posting. That bites!!!

    That’s just awful. Pretty soon we’ll be seeing $80 bricks of 22LR. I have about 3000 each 9mm and 5.56 but neither are calibers I regularly shoot.

    Good Lord. Should have invested in ammo instead of gold. ;)

    I have three boxes of factory 9mm that I would give you if we were neighbors.
