Hes a small time private dealer who does FFL 's and builds a few ARs,he has a will call list and he calls when he has enough to go around,he got burned by a couple gun show bandits early in this BS and wont sell bulk to anyone again.I f he even thinks you are buying more than you are using for yourself you are off the list,he wont supply for resale.

I'm not hoarding, I normally have this much. You should have seen the supplies when I was shooting shotgun! I'd go thru over a ton of shot a year. Try figuring out how much power/primers that took!!!

Re: Poll- Why are you hoarding ammo?

It's easy to understand your frustration what with the current ammo/components situation. One of the sad aspects is that it is some of our fellow shooters who are contributing to the problems by mass buying when it hits the shelves and then marking it up and selling it to the gullible at gun shows. Seeing more and more bulk ammo at the gun shows with the "China Mart" stickers still on the boxes. I'm like you. I hope there is a sudden and unexpected turn around and those louts lose their shirts.

This whole thing reminds me of the Y2K panic. Person couldn't find a portable generator to save your butt. The one's that were available suddenly went up double in price. (the law of supply and demand) was the culprit. Yeah! Right! After the whole fiasco blew over, one could buy never used portable generators at garage sales for half their original cost. I mean you simply cannot fix "stupid"! Hang in there, the pendulim will swing. it always does.

Re: Poll- Why are you hoarding ammo?

A little late on an older thread but.......

I don't hoard but I do feel comfortable when I have sufficient for my needs. Plus some to help others if need be.

I made the usual stop at Sportsman's Warehouse in Albuquerque, to do the usual browse of the empty shelves. They had a few nosler bulletsl w/a two box limit.

However, on the top shelf was 8# of US 869. Price was steep, it was there and I had the dough so I snapped it up. I don't think things are going to get any more available or less in price.

That 8#s plus what I already have is a life time supply for both my 338 Rum and 270 AM.

Now for some Retumbo for the even bigger girl and I'll be set for life.
