    BPS here has all the shotgun ammo you could want except 00 and slugs. Plenty of rifle other than 5.56 and .22. I got two boxes of RMC 9mm just because they had it. Plenty of 45, 357, 38, and 40.
    The Walmart here is hit and miss. I have seen he shelves full and empty in the past couple months. Always have hunting rounds (30-06, 270, 30-30). They actually had three AR type rifles in 5.56 and a couple 22's last weekend. More times than not they have at least a little of something. A month ago it was worse.
    The government ain't buying it to keep it from you. There was a major run on everything after sandy hook and with the gun control scare. Depending on where you live it is going to take a while to see it fully stocked again. Do you believe for a minute that manufactures are not running around the clock trying to pump it out? They are all about money and they can sell everything they make. They are chomping at the bit to get it out as fast as they can.
    components are going to take longer in my opinion because they are more worried about ammo than selling primers and powder.

    What is their reason for needing millions of rounds more than ever before stockpiled for all these various agencies?

    Not saying there isn't suspicious buying by the gov't, but for the ammo shortage you need to look at your neighbors. The ammo shortage has been due to hoarding. I have friends that have 20k rounds of .22 LR, not to mention their larger stuff. I talked to local dealer and he said the manufactures are running at full capacity but the stores can't keep it on the shelves.

    Same with Walmarts along the front range. I check daily with three of them, and they haven't had 9 mm for MONTHS

    Most of these stores will tell you that and often it's true. You should only go to the stores that you know have inventory and that's easy to find. In many cases you have to get the CS person to look the item up on their inventory. It's there; just often being held or hidden by employees. With a bit of nudging, it's amazing how things show up.

    I've got a friend that has a very large gun store on the north side of Metro Atlanta. They are getting ammo at the same rate as they were before the buying rush, it just doesn't stay around for long at all.

    His explanation on reloading supplies was that companies like CCI and Winchester that make the components that we use to reload are using all of the primers, bullets, powders they can in finished product ammo. Why sell primers when you can put them in a complete cartridge and make a higher profit margin. Sounds logical to me.
