Its an election year, and a democrap is president. Every election year there is a rush on guns and ammunition. When a democrap is in office, the panic buying gets really bad. People are worried about the glorious dicktator obama stripping us of our rights. So what do we do? We stock up.
Our glorious dicktator obama has done more to promote panic buying then any other president I can remember (I am 44 years old).
When bill clinton was elected office, and when the assault rifle ban was passed, people freaked out and bought everything in sight. Every time the dicktator opens his mouth gun sales spike.
We just “thought” bill clinton was bad.
It is not “just” the elections, people are worried about the economy, jobs, tensions with iran, tensions with china. To be perfectly honest, people are worried.
308 getting scarce
I do not know if my local walmart in Jasper, Texas does not order 308 Winchester, or they can not get in. But either way, I have not seen Remington core-lokt 150 grain 308 Winchester in a couple of months. I have not seen Federal in maybe 2 months or so.
308 supplies online seem to be drying up, or at the very least hit and miss. Someone might have 308 in stock for a couple of days, and then they are sold out.
If I did order online, all I would be getting is FMJ. Yea FMJ is cheap, it works, but its not very good for hunting. Sure FMJ pokes a hole, but some expansion would be nice.
Academy sports and outdoors sells a Monarch brand ammunition in a wide range of calibers. For the past 5 or 6 years all I have shot out of my AK47 is steel cased Monarch. Since it shoots good out of the AK, I decided to pick up a couple of box in 308 Winchester.
