My folks were in town the other day, and we went by Sportsman's Warehouse. Of every type of Sierra bullet, I think there were(maybe) a dozen assorted boxes left, and ALL the premium hunting bullets were gone. The Hornady and Speer bullets, about the same. I asked about some 2400 powder... "Maybe when the next truck comes in." Between 1/2 and 2/3 of their handgun spaces were empty.

And the endcaps that used to have cases of ammo? Boxes. And not very many.

Seems folks just don't trust The Obama, do they?

By the way, looked at bullet molds at Midway lately? An awful lot of 'out of stock, backorder ok' notes.

You have to be sneaky to get information out of the Sprotsmen Warehouse employtees. Here in Austin the ammo shelves are

I know what you mean. A coworker reported they'd restocked powder and primers a bit back but most were gone before he got in to buy. I shopped xmas eve and bought the last bit of Titegroup...8 lb keg...in the house.

The Sportsman's Whorehouse in north Phoenix is the same way......most of the store is full, but the firearms area has been ransacked. Only premium loaded ammo and bullets, very few primers, and almost no powder. Cabela's appears to be rationing their supplies. Each day they put out 1000 each of .223, 9mm, .357, and .45 bullets. When those are gone, there is nothing on the shelf until the next day when another 1000 appear. Primers and powder are the same. Loaded ammo is generally available, with 200 round packs of .223 selling for $80.
