Can someone tell me why ALOT of places are out of bullets? I know it is the first of the year. Did we get another anti-gun person in the White House? It just seems like the beginning of 2009 all over again.
I have noticed the same thing. Especially High BC bullets. I noticed it before the AZ tragedy happened. I just got all of my reloading stuff set up a few months ago and started trying to restock my supplies and was having a hard time finding bullets.
I have been shooting 58 gr. VMax's out of my .243. I tried the 87 gr. and like them. The reason for the heavier pills is the higher BC for bucking the wind. I have been watching Midsouth and Midway for these bullets and they are out of stock for two more months. These stores aren't the only ones I have been watching. But it only seems that the .243 cals are the only ones everyone is out of. Yes some are out of some .223 and .308. But .243's.
Plus it is not just not bullets with the two mentioned stores. They seem to be out of common things for the shooting sports. Maybe they just need to restock from the past holiday season.
I think some of the problem is Manf. have not kept up with a growing demand. This time of year alot of competition shooters stock-up, and when they are buying 3000 bullets at a time things can run short. F-class is growing fast in WI and other states and this drives vld bullet sales.
another issue is in february residents of california can no longer order handgun ammo and components from catalogs or internet vendors so everyone in california are buying up everything that they can right now.
havent heard if the new law includes rifle ammo and components though
