Not everyone can get the ammo they want.

I would like to live long enough to see what comes after The United States of America.

Who benefits from a shortage of ammo though?

The manufacturers are driving the price up along with the government. They know the sweet spot to drive maximum profit, just think about it. The governments purchases really are not excessive according to the NRA.

It's strange that there are many different sources out there that say different things. Subterfuge.

9mm, 115 or 124 gr FMJ, brass or nickel plated (no steel), for less than $0.30 per round, preferably by the case

45 ACP, 185 or 230 gr JHP for less than $0.40 per round, brass or nickel plated (no steel), preferably by the case

You could just go ahead and order it for me if you don't mind.

understand that thr DHS is actually buying less than previous years and is spending 1/10th the allowed budget on ammo. Also, these bullets are simply for training agents according to DHC.


forbes has estimated based on current usage it is enough ammo for 100+ years of training.

or a 20+ year war. take your pick.

NRA > Forbes

On gun issues

ETA: Chares Krauthammer thinks you boys are a bunch of paranoid radicals. He has researched the issue and come to the conclusion it's a ridiculous conspiracy and not logical reasoned intellectuals pushing this crap.

Funny, when LaPierre made his statement after Newtown we were told on this board the NRA only represents a small number of gun owners

I don't want to get bogged down in background checks because we all have strong opinions, but you should take comfort in what the NRA is saying about the ammo buying conspiracy.

You are complaining about the price, not the availability. There is a BIG difference!

I'm complaining about both. They're two sides of the same coin, not a "BIG difference" IMO. Fluco simply asserted that ammo is much harder to find these days. You called BS for some reason.

Where I live, the rounds I described are like dinosaurs. You simply cannot find them on any store shelves ... no WalMarts (I've checked all four in my immediate area), none of the traditional sporting goods stores, none of the dedicated gun stores. I have seen very limited quantities online, but of course the prices are through the roof (supply/demand). If you dismiss that ammo is hard to find, why then are prices also climbing, as you seem to agree in your response to my post?

All I can say is I should have been hoarding a lot more over the years, especially reloading components!

Hoarders are the reason for the "shortage" and the increased prices. You can still get any ammo you want, it just is more expensive. Once hoarders run out of $ prices will drop but until then you can either pay more or just live with what you have.

I just saw your post, are either of these what you need? They are .300 whisper and one is soft point, I don't know if they are AAC as I am not really familiar with that round.
