I already knew about the feds buying billions of bullets back in September. That news didn't really affect ammo prices nor the stock levels. I stocked up back in October prior to the election and things were still normal then. Prices never really spiked until shelves started to go bare in mid December. Ammo prices are so high now because stock isn't available. Now why is stock not available is what I want to know. I don't buy the whole people are buying up all the stock reasoning because anyone claiming that is only looking at the present day surface symptoms. People are buying up scrape amounts because normal stock isn't actually coming in making ammo scarce and driving up prices. That's the route problem. Interestingly enough this all started right after Sandy Hook. Sandy Hook emptied the shelves but the shelves were never really restocked and people just assumed the masses were continually buying up everything out of fear. From what I've been able to figure out, ammo makers are actually ramping up production but my local stores aren't actually getting stock and neither are the online stores. What they are receiving are peanut amounts. Someone is buying up all the stock between manufacturing and distribution to the stores. Makes one think the current ammo shortage was engineered. Something unusual is going on behind the seams. I don't know what but it makes my "spider senses" tingle.


I'm in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area and I can confirm that here as well (since December) so it's just not limited to rural areas.

500 bricks for an online shop that ships to a nation wide market is a pretty small shipment.

2 go along with that, I have 3 pistol magazines on order with Sig Sauer. It has been in limbo land for over 30 days now.

I have not been at the range for a few weeks. I can imagine this "ammo shortage" has impacted them too.

I have MP22 mags also in limbo land although in my case, that shortage has been ongoing since that gun came out so I knew that would be the case when I bought the gun.

I went to the range last week, first time since the scare and people are definitely scared... not that many shooters and they weren't unloading as much ammo at those targets. Also, no ammo on the shelves except for the few boxes of odd calibers. I don't know if they just didn't have ammo or if they were just hoarding them for their rental customers (who need to use their ammo), I didn't ask.

A perfect example of a self fulfilling prophecy. People are hoarding ammo , for whatever perceived threat, and the sellers are more than happy to to accommodate. If there is a problem, it is you, the consumer, who is ultimately responsible.Stop the kneejerk buying, and everything will settle back down.

STOP snapping up ammo at these ridiculous prices. $35 for a box of 500 .22? ARE YOU KIDDING ME

You guys are encouraging them to make these the permanent prices.

You paid 17.50 for a brick of bulk federal... not CCI's.

THere is a difference.

Pick up a walther p22 or a .22 AR style semi auto and run some federal through it...

Then run some CCI's through it... and enjoy the lack of FTF, FTE's....

Im not saying the 17.50 ammo wasn't fine.. I used plenty of it.. but there is a diffeence and if you are going to compare prices you need to compare to comparable priced products at the time.
Not necessary true. Just recently aquired sw m&p 15-22 ar style. It cycled through Federal and Reminginton bulk packs with ease. I initally got 1 FTF on the first magazine due to my error then had no FTF nor FTE after 600 rounds that day and 450 about 2 days after. I heard bad reviews on Remington gold packs but mine cyled just fine even multi rapid fires. If you get a good reliable 22 then you should not have problems with what ever ammo you feed it. Getting a better quality 22 and able to eat up anything you feed it saves you money in the long run.

Reminds me of when I got a Kimber Solo 9mm. Very pricey but very picky on ammo. It doesnt like reloads and only like 124 gr and pricer factory rds. Got rid of that junk and ended up with sig p238. It eats up reloads, wolf, factory, hps with no FTF/FTE. And its couple hundred dollars cheaper.

That may be a contributing factor, however after Sandy Hook basically every online ammo dealer sold out of every caliber and have had scraps come in here and there since.

People are fearing that ammo will be banned, even common ammo like 22LR and 9mm, so they're flipping out.

Everyone doesn't wanna admit the real truth!, blame bans, blame this, blame that. We all don't want to admit the real truth! A CIVIL WAR MAY BE HEADED OUR WAY!. I hope in every way possible that it does not happen but history repeats itself and the mass are refusing to ignore the signs this time around. The last time it happened, millions upon millions died.

For all whiners waiting until the day ammo prices magically drop back to pre-Sandy Hook days....good luck. The previous generation of whiners 10+ years ago waited for ammo prices to drop back to pre-9/11 days too.

Better realize when a sea change happens in history folks. We're definitely witnessing one in the gun industry. A shortage/rationing of the lowly 22LR is a big fat sign.

+1 THIS. Same thing happened with HDD prices after the Thailand floods and I am just NOW seeing prices come back down to something reasonable. I'm going to wait even though I've been itching to try out the new Nikon scope.

I am aware of this and currently have a order in for 1k BB roundslaugh out loud

starts with high caliber and sooner or later it will all be impacted.

Seriously though, 2 the folks who are stocking 5k plus rounds, do u have a ceiling (limit) or just continue to add?

I hope the prices of Amos go up just as tobacco products over the past 2 decades. 1 round= $1 at least. Bang bang bang bang. There goes $4 outta ur pocket and there lie 4 dead people. People may stop thinking of this as a sport after all.

I am mainly a lurker here on SD but figured i would chime in on this. My roomate in college works for remington out in Arkansas and i have been picking his brain on this whole "shortage". He claims they have ammo stacked to the ceiling in the factory. He said to expect a full rush of ammo around april. He also stated prices have not increased to any of their accounts which in most cases is the distributors. It is the distributors and/or retailers who raise the prices. Regardless he said mid summer supply will be normal at larger retailers(walmart, dicks, etc) which should drive the price down for the smaller shops
