  • The ammo and reloading component shortage must be nationwide after checking locally, on-line at Cabela's, Midway, Bass Pro, Gand

    The ammo and reloading component shortage must be nationwide after checking locally, on-line at Cabela's, Midway, Bass Pro, Gander Mt, J & G, Lock, Stock, and Barrel, Gaff, and others who are all "out of stock". Have the rest of you encountered this problem to any great extent?

      I have experienced the same on Natchezss and CheaperthanDirt. The only thing in stock seems to be unpopular sized stuff.

          steve182: The two sources your mentioned plus Mid-South Shooters supply are the others I refered to, looks like if you have an antique French pinfire revolver you might be in luck, anything halfway normal, forget it.
          Del: My Wallyworld has limited us to ONE box for over a month but it does not matter because they don't have anything anyway.
          The lady who cuts my hair and is a trapshooter told me she saw on TV that some guy walked into a Cabela's and bought all their metallic ammo. Wrote a check and had them load it into his pickup.

              About March 17, 2009 I contacted Congressman John Boozmans Office. What I was told there is no legislation on the Federal level at this time, only at the state level. Below is the web site I was to refer to for what is going on. Also what I was told where there is heavy hunting, this should not pass. Also Congressman John Boozman is with the 2nd Amendment group and opposes any legislation of this type period! http://www.ammunitionaccountability.org/Legislation.htm

              Also at that time I emailed Federal Cartridge Company and they said the shortage was due to Government Contracts.

                    Talked with an owner of a large gun shop tonight. He said they are having problems getting in some components, especially primers.

                            I've had a hard time finding any handgun ammo in decent quantities. I shoot a 9mm and it seems even harder to find. I did get a few hundred rounds of FMj Winchester white box at Wal-Mart the other day. It was the only center fire handgun ammo in the store and it was still in the back. I really like the Winchester SPX personal protection ammo exclusively at Bass Pro but they have not had any in the store near me or online for a while.

                              You want to know why every one is stocking up? Because Obama is in office. Every one is afraid that he is going to take our ammo away.
