Things are improving even though we aren't seeing shelves full. Hornady added an entire new shift. I know other manufacturers are doing the same. Ammo is being produced and people will only stockpile so much. My guess is we start to see more ammo on shelves by mid to late summer.I was thinking about putting a new scope on my 7mm this year but only have 18 shells left and no 7mm ammo (Nosler) to be found in Cheyenne or NoCo.
I don't see an end in sight
there is no shortage. guberments buying it up to drive prices up . if you can't ban guns ,you make them unaffordable . that , and it is just not being released to the stores because an illegitimate president and his minions fear rebellion.Thankfully I learned from the shortage a few years back and the seasonal production of certain ammunition. I have plenty of hunting ammunition in four different calibers and enough 22 cal. to last a lifetime. People I know apparently did not get the memo and now can’t find hunting ammunition. I work on, clean and sight rifles for others and have for years. I have never seen such a shortage of 308, 7RM and 300WM. I searched Midway USA for those three last night and 0 available in any configuration. I assume that the manufacturers are producing but wonder where it goes. Any suggestions? I may just have to take up reloading but wonder about components.
I dropped my price on primers, I just couldn't sell them at $150.00 knowing what I paid for them. I sold them for !00.00 per brick . but kept the posted price at 150.00 to keep the other dealers from buying them and reselling them later for more. Sold them to shooters not dealers. I still made a good profit and felt a lot better about it myself. I'm not greedy. I sold several guns, lots of powder and brass and cleaned out a lot of stuff I really didn't need.Our shooting club has it's yearly gun show starting tomorrow and over the weekend. I'll get a good idea what's out there. I'm selling primers for $150.00 per brick (1,000).
