    I bought 1000 rounds of 9mm in feb i think. Glad i did, but im afraid to shoot it now because i cant find any more. I like to keep at least 1000 rnds of handgun ammo on my shelf.

    I cannot find .270 ammo.
    Hell, I can't find any rifle ammo. Waterfowl ammo is plentiful. (For now)

    It appears I am surrounded by experts.
    Steel and lead shot shells are plentiful in the greater Baton Rouge area. The only way to buy 9mm is to purchase a handgun chambered for it and they’ll sell you a couple boxes. I seen bullets for deer calibers but no 223 or 5.56.

    I have plenty of .22LR, 30-06, 7.62x39, misc ammo for some mil-surps. I have several boxes of steel loads so I need to buy some. I only shoot one or two rounds of .270 a year so I'm good for the rest of my lifetime. I'm reloading 12 and 20 ga for sporting clays.

    Oddly enough, .223/5.56 is plentiful right now. I could go by a ton of it. Handgun ammo in the more popular calibers is about impossible to get hold of right now ,and, if you find it and can afford it, there is usually a limit to how much you can buy. .22 is fairly plentiful now.

    That's true I suppose. But that might just be cause demand is high and it's 0.50 a round for steel .223 and $0.80 for 5.56 ball.

    Primer shortages are what's holding up a lot ammo availability. I know you reload @Bear. Tried buying any of those or are you stocked up? With Biden''s plan to outlaw online purchasing of ammo becoming more widely known, ammo becomes almost a daily scavenge hunt. New supplies sell out in hours. And honestly some places that normally carry it are cleaning off their shelves and cashing in on the panic by putting it on auction sites where it brings more than the normal. It's only going to get worse the more likely it looks like Biden will be pres and the more people realize what Kamala''s stance is
