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!
