MarkB_MI, According to the ammo MFG, they are 6 to 9 months behind (1917) lol. That will mean maybe by next year or two there will be 1 box of ammo per customer guaranteed, or your money back.lol. I hate suppositions to.Can't swing a cat without someone who heard something that might be true,or thought it was true,or used their education to suppose its true. Isn't that how we got into this debacle in the first place???
Even the reloading components are coming up short, Had a order of (100 brass cases) for 300 winchester on backorder for 3 months,still out of stock,and says maybe by April they will be in stock.Enjoy the wait people. Is this the Hope and Change???
Hope you get some, No change in the future.lol.
PS GOING ONCE... GOING TWICE... POOF.

| Walt it's no secret why there's an ammunition shortage. It started back in the mid-2000's, when the military's demand for ammo started straining production. Not so much for the two wars, but for training the troops going into those wars. For example, I used to be able buy Israeli-made IMI brass, but you can't get it anymore. All of IMI's production is bought up by the US and Israeli military. (The US only uses it for training, since it would be politically unwise for Israeli brass to show up where US troops are fighting muslim insurgents.) |
Next the price of brass went out of sight, which drove up ammo prices and made spent brass hard to come by.
Then of course, we had a little panic back in 2008 when everybody started buying everything in sight. Ammo stocks were just starting to recover from that when the Newtown massacre occurred, leading to the current big run on guns and ammo. No conspiracy, just supply and demand, with demand fueled by paranoia.
