What Ammo Shortage?

This is a discussion on What Ammo Shortage? within the The Ammo Can forums, part of the Armory Talk category; $20 for 50 rounds of PMC .45ACP is the best I've seen it around here in awhile. My LGS charges $23.99 for the same PMC. ...

Pretty soon reloading will be the only way to go. Buying retail will be for carry ammo and only the most casual shooters.

You could pick up pmc 9 for 9 bucks a box all day before the panic, at 18 dollars a box that is double.


Aquilla for 13.50 I wouldn't mind purchase , that is more reasonable and I have had no problems with Aquilla they are good ammo.

LOL - the Aguila is the only 9mm that I noticed in the photos at first and thought 13.50 wasn't double, but your right on about the PMC. Way too much for it.

It's funny, I saw someone paying $25 for a box of 25ACP ammo at a gun show today, and I wouldn't pay $25 for a firearm chambered for that cartridge.

Uhmm... When I went to college, gasoline was 17 cents a gallon for 95 octane. The good stuff, over 100 octane was about a quarter a gallon. So yeah... I hate paying $4 a gallon for it now.

As little as a dozen years ago or so, 1000rnd case of 9mm was under $100, so for a long time I didn't reload for it.

The moral of the story, get an oil well and reload! Oh... and buy into a primer factory.

Some places have NO ammo at all. Just trying to help those in need. Thankfully, I'm pretty well set. Didn't buy any of it.
Ignore the people moaning and griping. You post up something people are looking for and they gripe at you for the price or because it's not what they prefer. I don't get it; we're just trying to help out the community. It's not like we have a say in the price or availability. Thanks for taking the time to let us know.

Exactly what I was thinking. Most everywhere I went prior to SH was about $12/box for 9mm. Not sure how that guy can say $17/box is double the typical going price.
