    I think it's the situation everywhere. I was in the SW in Twin Falls the other day and the only ammo they had was .338 Lapua. The local gun store in my town has ammo but it's expensive and he only marks it up a small percentage, $700 for a thousand rounds of 9mm and that seems to be a good price in todays market. He told me they were turned down for a $25,000 ammo purchase, the manufacturer told them that the order was too small. Sounds like only the big guys are going to have ammo and guaranteed they will mark it up to what the demand will handle.

    A lot of my local shops charge a grip for that service. I haven’t found one yet that was a cost I’d pay

    I haven't had any luck with that locally. Still need to support the local stores when we can.
