Here we are approaching the half-way mark of the year (we are not there yet), and the ammunition shortage is showing no signs of letting up.
22 Long Rifle – I have not seen 22 long rifle in about 6 or 7 months. The last time I can remember seeing 22 long rifle in stock was back around November,,, maybe even October 2012.
Even before Sandy Hook 22 long rifle was difficult to find.
223 Remington – Is hit sand miss. Places like Palmetto State Armory have been getting bulk 223 Remington in stock, but my local wal-mart has not.
I have not seen American Eagle or Federal at my local wal-mart in months. The local wal-mart here in Jasper Texas has been getting Tula in every few weeks, so that is what I have been buying. In this type of situation you buy what you can find.
Online stores that are lucky enough to 223/5.56mm in stock are sold out in a matter of minutes.
