    Saw some .223 boxes but no 5.56 rounds around. What's the deal with shortages on 22lr? Also prices are like 4x higher than 2 years ago.

    I have a guy at the wal-mart I shop at. He told me that they, almost always, have ammo in the stock room. They just limit what they put out so that the first guy that comes in doesn't clean them out. They do this because they are not receiving any more than usual even though the demand has risen.

    That makes absolutely no sense.

    They aren't making money in the stock room. They're making it at the register. And the register doesn't care if 200 boxes were bought by one guy, or 100 guys.

    I agree, but it's a fact. I've known the guy for 20 years. This is what his manager has told him to do.

    They certainly don't do that at the two Walmarts' where I live. If they have ammo, it is sold out in 15 minutes or less.

    The Walmart stores in the Metro Denver area limit customers to three​ boxes of ammunition per day.

    I'm plant manager for starline brass, we are running 24 hr 6 days a week. We are trying to build machinery as fast as we can. We produced 13 million cases last month. We are over 70 million back order. Basically we are sold out untill the end of the year. We can't take back order any more, because we can only hold credit cards numbers over 30 days. The federal goverment has not bought one piece of it, that I know of. A small amount could be loaded for city law inforcement agents.

    I do know the good old boys are nervous, with everything thats going on.

    If you need shells and blanks for test and trials, better get started looking early.

    Mr Wolf thank you for your response

    The government buying it all up is tin foil hat stuff. I know of people who have stocked more than they should need in their lifetime. I am sure that there are millions like them. I know a guy who owns a gunship. He says that cannot keep anything on the shelf, the loons just keep coming back for more. He is trying to bank what he is making on the hysteria, he figures it can't last forever and someday sales have to crater. Personally I figure if I have a case of shotgun shells and a box of what my pistols and rifles use, I'm good.
