Ammunition shortage..


Absolutely no proof from me, just speculation. As Thanksgiving approaches I love to do some target shooting with several different guns. I don't want to deplete my ammunition "stock pile", so I've been searching high and low to purchase more for a good family day of shooting. Can't find it! About the only thing available is bird shot for shotguns.

Friends at a gathering we all talk about this situation and one old boy brings up Soros buying into Ammunition manufactures. and then you do some searching and find many Gun Control Groups buying stock in Ammunition companies. How do you stop Gun owners? Taking away the ability to have bullets for you gun would be a good way. Why would George Soros and many other big money Gun haters buy into Ammunition companies?

Not a lot online, but enough to make a person wonder?

I know the election year scenario, and the wuhan lock down are being blamed by many, but I think it's more than that.

Now for the bashing. as I said much speculation from me.... But something is up with this HUGE ammunition shortage and also the ability to get gun Parts. Son and I were going to do another build and there is nothing to be had.


Here's some more speculation on my part. I say we are in for another large mass scale murder spree with someone using an AR platform giving more fuel to grab guns from citizensquestion I hope not though. Thanks for "listening" to my rant.

No, carbine. My Garand fires the standard M1 Garand ammo (30-06).

Maid my rounds at the gun stores this afternoon here in Greenville. Got 2) pound of h335 powder. Price on the shelf sticker & on powder $25.99. ring up $34.99. manager come over told me apparently somebody miss labeled them. After a brief discussion he finally told her let me have it for 25. 99 but there is a limit of 1.. and being an ass about it. They had CCI small pistol primers 82 bucks a box. Academy sports has small pistol primers $59 a box. Everyone needs to remember these stores that are trying to rip us off


You find things offensive.
I find things funny.
That's why I'm happier than you.

Picked up 4 more boxes of sub-sonic .22 ammo today at Academy. They'll only let you buy 4.

Are you shooting them in a semi Auto ?

Found a couple things about PSA manufacturing ammo.

Fred started this thread about this time last year. The shelves were pretty bear. 🐻 hahaha. Good thing is you can find ammo on the shelves about everytime you go now. Still overpriced and rationed. But at least there's something out there...

It's good to see some ammo returning, but it is still ridiculous when you go into our local Ace and see the shelves almost bare. I haven't seen them carry any .270 since last year. Our president bans Russian Ammo, but opens up the world to their oil while cutting ours off. Just let's ya know that this administration does not want America to have a easy accessibility to ammunition. My latest purchases have been .12 buck shot. I've got enough .556/.223 that I may start back doing a little fun shooting. Been a long time since I've enjoyed running a few rounds into some targets.

Dfreedom, the son and I tried some .22 sub sonics and they would not cycle in either of our 10/22's or my mark III. We had some a while back that would cycle but don't remember the brand? Will yours cycle and if so what brand you getting? Wife was cleaning kitchen and found my missing 50 round mags for the 10/22, I was happy.
I happened to be in Sportsman's Warehouse in North Charleston last night looking at ammo. There was one box of 30-06 on the shelf.....and it was $68. That's like 3.50 a round.

I told the guy I wouldn't come back. He said he didn't blame me.

Wally world the other day, seen 308 for $28 a box and 22 lr for $40 a box of 300 rounds. Glad I don't need anything at these prices.
No, I am buying sub-sonic .22 ammo for the .22 bolt-action rifle I plan to buy. Looking at CZ, Ruger and Winchester but, I haven't made up my mind yet. I have time since my .22 suppressor is still months away from being in my hands.

Shooting sub-sonics in a semi-auto can be tricky depending upon what you are shooting them out of. I have a S&W 422 that will cycle with subs shooting around 900-1,000 fps but, anything lower gets dicey. the speed of sound is around 1,100 FPS so, anything under that is "sub-sonic". Any ammo can be used but, sub-sonic will obviously give you a quieter shot.

The .22s I bought were $6.99/50. Sucks but, it is what it is. That us really all I have bought amm0-wise in a while. Sitting pretty good with other calibers.
