Was cleaning out my grandparents old house. Found...
5000 rounds of .22
500 of .45
Hundreds of rifle rounds
And a few hundred shot shells.
A good find
A good find AND a great granddad!
My local Cabela's had a bunch of their Herter's nylon jacket ammo the other day, so I got as much of it as I could. Haven't seen any regular brass-case range or defensive 9mm ammo in a while, though.
Got lucky today and got 6 boxes of Winchester white box 100 round value pack at WalMart. They just got a case of 10 in and since my wife was with me I was able to get 3 for me and 3 for her. There was one box left which was snapped up as I was leaving.
Not much on the .223/5.56 around here again. Everything else is looking OK and now I'm kicking myself for being a bit picky a few weeks ago. I'm going to have to suck it up and get some 9mm makarov online and eat the shipping
Well, there is still none of the "hot" calibers around here (.22lr, 9mm, 45acp, .223/5.56) but I hear they are coming in a bit faster now, they are just gone by the time I get there
Plenty of magazines however. The local Sportsman Warehouse has tons of AR and AK mags, also the 10/22 25 round magazines. Magpul PMAGS are about $17, that's about $3 to $4 more than I like to pay for AR mags but it's not bad at all.
It's almost back to normal here just not much .223/5.56 everything else is readily available, except at Wal-mart.
I went to a gun show today. Center pistol 9mm, 40 S&W, & .45 ACP was running about $10 more a box than last year. .22LR was almost double from last year. Didn't buy anything.
Anyone want 7mm mag or 28 gauge, cause thats all we have.
I expect another run for guns and ammo in IL now that concealed carry passed.
Picked up two 50ct boxes of federal at Walmart for 14$. Not a bad deal. Also have incoming 200rnds from a buddy who purchase bulk reloaded ammo and let me buy some from him for 10$ per 50. Now I have about 400 "in stock."
Last week's gun show was interesting. It was the least crowded show I've been to in a year, and there was a lot of ammo around. Boxes of .223/5.56, 7.62 and others. Not a lot of 9mm or .45 however. But the prices were still way too high. I usually try to be more polite but I couldn't help but laugh at a vendor trying to sell a 500 round box of .22lr for $79.50... and he was bragging about how it had come down $20.00 from $99.50! No one took him up on it, and that was what I found interesting. NOBODY was buying ammo. I heard several vendors talking and they said they weren't having a good show. I'm hoping people are getting tired of buying at these prices.
Local stores are finally stocking a fair amount of .40S&W and .45ACP. Prices are "only" up 10-20%. Still no bulk .22LR anywhere; only a little bit of subsonic and some match grade (?) stuff that's $10/100rds! No thanks! Not a lot of volume, but you can get pretty much any caliber center fire hunting round at decent prices if you look around. I was FINALLY able to score some Hornady Critical Defense .357 Magnum. Not only was it the specific brand/application I wanted, but it was the first .357 Mag I've seen in many months.
Local Walmarts have no good calibers on shelves. LGSs have ammo but at 20%-50% increase in cost. Only place where ammo is being found at close to before scare prices is Academy Sports. While they are still keeping the HOT ammo behind the customer service counter, you can find 9mm, .22 LR and .223 (even steel cased rounds) in the middle of the day. Hopefully this is a sign that ammo availablity is coming back.
Local gun shops have most calibers of ammo back in stock except 22LR. Ammo is approximately 20% to 35% more than November pricing.
Looks like pistols and long rifles are coming back in stock and pricing is close to normal again. No problem finding AR-15s at Palmetto State Armory.
You need a good home for those critters?
The .22LR online price seems to start at .16/round for quality 40 grain solid, though there was one place in North Carolina that seemed to have it for about .08/round on Thursday morning. I don't know what the shipping was tho.
