    Bear in mind that Wally World is having a huge problem nationwide putting anything on the shelves. Lots and lots of stuff in the back but too few employees to keep the checkouts manned and stock the shelves.

    Around here I haven't noticed a shortage of anything I need to buy. Except for the Zombie Max loads. If ZA day comes, I am hosed.

    I stop by that store regularly. They have less and less ammo since they opened.

    That's why you have to check their inventory before you go. No need to waste your time at a store that doesn't have what you need.

    I make the rounds of local stores regularly. I stand in line at Gander Mountain on truck mornings.
    .22 LR invisible
    .223 close to invisible
    9 mm hard to find
    40 hit and miss
    45 hit and miss

    Whenever I find ammo in bulk, I buy it, whether I need it or not.

    I have found calling is not nearly as productive as just dropping by.

    I agree. Just make sure the store your're dropping by has what you want before you go and you don't learn that by calling.

    Nobody has answered the question regarding Uncle Sam buying it up as fast as they can... The govt is/has purchased more ammo than they will ever need or could possibly use in small arms.

    I work for the #1 firearm dealer in America. My buyers have been told by the Manufacturs that they are only operating at 70 percent. Homeland security is not buying it all up. Without going into a long detail that's all I am willing to type. Also if people would stop hoarding it when they find ammo on the shelf then more people could buy some. Just saying.
