Things are really starting to look up as far as ammo is concerned.  I’m not sure if its because manufacturers have upped production so much or if its because the people hoarding ammo have all they want now.  But either way, things are better now than when I did my update 1 month ago.

Yesterday I stopped by two local gun shops and both had filled their shelves up.  It was the first time there had been no white space in weeks.  They even had some of the elusive 22lr ammo.  It was pretty expensive ($0.09 a round for CCI standard velocity rounds) but I picked some up while I was there.

As far as online is concerned, the list below speaks for itself.  Here’s what was available as of February 9th, 2013, at 10:00am.

As always, if you like my updates, let me know.  Leave a comment and subscribe if you haven’t already.  You don’t have to be a WordPress user, you can follow using email too.  I do these updates every few days and they drive hundreds of viewers through my site; some are probably the same people each time.  Why search for ammo every week when I’m doing it for you?  Subscribers get this sent straight to their email.

If you’d like another caliber included, leave a comment and ill include it in my next update (that’s how 9mm came aboard).  I don’t mind including more if it’ll help some people out.

Well, now I’m off to the range.  I’ve been sick with eagerness to get back to shooting some.  Its been over a month since I shot at all (I used to go twice a week!) and I’ve got lots of accessories that I got for Christmas that haven’t seen any use at all.  Its going to be like 38 degrees and windy, so wish me luck!

  4. […] week it doesn’t look like 22lr is any healthier than in previous updates, but .223 and 5.56 are starting to show an improvement.  7.62x54R still seems pretty available, as […]
