Default Ammo Getting Place (Poll) :)

So I haven't seen much out of anyone for ammo scores and availability recently.

I figured everyone must be finding ammo at their local ammo getting places. So I figured I would take a poll to find out. Please after you take the poll place your answer and location in the thread. I'm interested to see if anyone is still suffering the ammo shortage that we all felt.

Cheers!!!

Past couple years I have been hording when I found it online at the right price. Now I have enough to last me years. So now I just buy when I have some discounts to be used to lower the price. I have some 20% off Cabela's gift cards and Dick's cash I'm waiting to combine with a sale. I'll get it 4 cents a round.

Other than rim fire I reload all of my ammo so I just have to keep the components in stock and I have a well stocked reloading bench.

One thing that would make America Great Again is 22 LR sitting on the shelf at Walmart every day of the week...@ .04 a round. Walmart is still bare around here; every damned day.

Everyone else has readily available stock, just not at .04 a round. My 15-22 seems to cycle golden bullets better than the best CCI, Federal, etc. Last 1400 round bucket cost me .06. I can live with that.

Here in this part of Georgia, the Walmarts are nearly always stocked fairly well, particularly with my current (pistol) favorites, Perfecta and Federal aluminum. I've been seeing CCI 22lr and 22 magnum pretty freqently for a good while now, and even some bulk boxes have been showing up recently.
Various 223 stuff is typically available and reasonable, as are the usual hunting calibers.
I'll occasionally make a small on-line purchase, and these days that's always from Sportsmanguide, and only when I can score a free shipping coupon, which usually makes them nearly unbeatable, (particularly on a small order of some nice SD ammo.)
But even then, they still can't touch Federal aluminum 9mm and 45, or the perfecta 9mm and 38 from Walmart for decent blasting grade stuff.

No need to tie up capital with a favorable political climate.

I've been able to find 22lr easily enough at .06 for some time now, although Walmart has only had it twice in the past several years.
Have had no problems with other calibers.

Got to admit I had been stocking up on reloading supplies - not a huge amount but more than I normally have on hand - only because I remember what happened in 2008 and I was caught 'behind the lines' and was low - and the prediction was possibly the same if the election had gone the 'other way' - regardless loading supplies do not go bad and I will use them up.

9, 40, 45, 380, 38 sp, common shotgun loads, most common rifle rds, all in pretty good supply.

Limited 357 mag, 44 mag.

223/556 goes fairly quickly if decent price.

22 mag, 22lr all go FAST. The grapevine is VERY active everywhere.

NO 41 mag or 44 sp anywhere locally.

I can find most anything I want at Midway USA. Because I can go pick it up and not pay shipping the prices are good. However I sold my 22mag LCR because that was the one round I had problems finding.

I am happy now that our local Dicks in CT. has been stocking up after that dry spell. Bought a couple of boxes of Federal auto 22Lr 325 count boxes for $19.95 each a few weeks ago.

What's wrong with you guys, use Ammograb.com it's like Amazon, you type in the caliber and they pop up the price and the link to get it. .06 cents all day long, sometimes .05 cents
