    It appears the further from major metro the greater likelihood of stock and no/less price inflation.

    You might find ammo at one of the local gun shows.

    Reports from the MDS community on recent shows is slim pickens and outrageous prices relative to pre summer riots. That said, if you need it is what it is. Like the great spot shortage of 2(?) years ago. Spot was what $2 a pop IIRC. Did not buy spot at that price and am not buying ammo at current pricing.

MSP went from processing 300-400 77R applications a week to 3500 a week and are working 7 days a week to get them done.
    That pretty much sums it up IMHO.

    Respectfully disagree with production cuts. Are you seeing shortages of milk or meat whose plants are seeing same/similar hurdles? Demand is through the roof and people continue to just scoop up anything and everything they can Kind of like the great toilet paper shortage of '00. Brokenheartedly, I completely agree with the current administration's intent WRT guns.

    The problem with ammo production is there is a huge number of new gun purchasers and they all need ammo. This coupled with existing gun owners panicing over the new administration and buying all the ammo they can. Factories just can't keep up. I spoke with the Nosler customer service manager about defective 308 ammo I bought and he told me to keep the good shells out of the 3 boxes and send them back to Nosler and he would replace them with 3 new boxes as soon as they were manufactured. I have been waiting 2 months and nothing yet and this is direct from the factory. This is also where I got all my info on the reason for the shortage. I also believe that the new administration is going to make it hard to buy ammo as a back door to gun control....... Gary

    Yes, they are running full capacity and cannot keep up for the reasons you cited.

    Ammunition is the same deal as toilet paper. When there is a report of a shortage, people panic and start hording........ Gary
