There is probably more money to be made on the ammo most folks stockpile, would be my guess. Glad I have some 30-30 put away, the price is ridiculous if you can even find it to buy it! God help us....Please!That's odd, because you don't think of hunting rounds as a type of ammo to stock pile back, like your 7.62 & 5.56 FMJ rifle ammo.
Why a shortage of hunting ammo?
It absolutely is. I am planning to get into some of the hunting ammo as well. We have had a lot of those same shortages here in Wisconsin.My retirement job is retail firearm / ammo sales. May not be useful, but, we have not seen shortages of .308 or 5.56 ammo at all. and 9mm made a quick recovery for us as well, typically lots of .45auto , too.
What we don't see often is typical hunting ammo, We are in northern rockies, so from .243 thru 300 win mag.
I hope this is somehow useful for you. I, too, load most of my range ammo. Can always take on more primers / powder
One of 3 ways
So you are shooting revolvers instead of 9mm(semi)?
Hi Mike, I love revolvers ,1911's, and have a special soft spot for the first wonder 9 the HiPower. Smith and Ruger revolvers are also a vice. 38/357/41 mag. Almost forgot, Ruger convertible 22/22mag too! A 3 screw and a 4 screw both 5.5" barrels. Loads of fun to shoot!I don't own an 9 MM rifles or pistols.
Only Colt & Ruger revolvers .44s & .357.
I have over 100 Black talons all calibers with so much more, the truth is, I doubt I will be buying anything else this lifetime around.
It would be interesting to see this question with some other firearms forums members results.
@Master Gunworks Have you posted this question any where else?
I agree, but I couldn't care less what others may say regarding this. I know what suits me, and as far as I'm concerned, that's all that matters to me.I don't think revolvers are going anywhere ! Even the new generation are coming to appreciate them. 38/357 will never be out of style !
My mistake re: the Ruger 22/22 mag convertible. The new one is not a 4 screw like I said, but it is a new model.Hi Mike, I love revolvers ,1911's, and have a special soft spot for the first wonder 9 the HiPower.
