Actually some bills being noodled around DO go after ammo. A "Violence Tax" on every bullet sold is being talked about. Limiting or eliminating purchases over the internet. Requiring a license/registration of all ammo purchases. No purchases of bulk ammo over 1,000 rounds... etc.
Given that to chum the waters of FUD (Fear Uncertainty and Doubt) why wouldn't you stock up on supplies? If not for the sake of getting it before taxes, limits and licensing....just to keep your shelves stocked at lower prices. For years I told every one of my shooting buddies to "Police and SAVE your brass." They all scoffed back " I don't reload like you do." So they just left it there. They are all telling me they should have listened. LOL. They would be able to sell that stuf for a decent buck right now!
Once I saw the crush for lowers, 80% lowers, uppers, parts and AMMO. I knew the reloading stuff was next....so I got to it before they did and stocked up. According to MidwayUSA, Brownells, Cabelas, Bass Pro, etc...they all expect brass in the stores between March 2nd and March 28th. They of course couldn't say how much it would cost. LOL.
Shoot straight....be sure of your backstop...and load safe!
