Try Ammoseek. Also Midway USA, Ammunition Depot and Bulk Ammo. I check all these regularly and ordered some last week.

It's so dang overpriced when you do find it. Keep hoping will come down to reasonable levels but I dunno. I'm down to my last 3K of 9mm!

Yeah I find some but it’s like .60 per round. Used to get it for .19 a round. It’s just to high.

I remember paying 7 or 8 cents a round.
When in stock, Academy sells it for $13.00/50 with a 2 or 3 box limit. Online in bulk you will pay scalping prices.

Reloading supplies are also out of this world too. Even molds for casting bullets are scarce.

Got there yesterday at 7:45 for a 9 AM opening. We were 7th inline. 9mm at the front of the store handed out in orderly fashion. All other calibers on the shelves out back - but not much of anything.

Now may be the time to lighten the load on powder and primers Iíve been accumulating.

When its cheap, stack it deep!

I have not purchased ANY ammo since this started. Probably last purchase was factory 300BLK when I started reloading for it so I could compare my reloads.
I even cast and powder coat 9mm and 300BLK as well as others
Reloading Primers are hard to get right now but still can be found once and a while or making trades.

try to find places that will text you when back in stock so you can jump on them right away.
Local resource said the GovMent has been buying stuff up making commercial ammo even more scarce.

Try the direct Federal or Sig Sauer site. They have it off and on.
But it’s over priced as said already.

I have 3k rounds of 9mm. If I find it locally for less than $20 a box I'll buy some. Lately I dont touch my stash. I'll buy a box for $27 at my local range to run thru my carry. Lately I'll just shoot .22lr or shorts. I have 15k rounds of .22, and I can always get more easily. Last time at Rural King, last week in fact, they had Norma .22lr on the ammo table. They had 50 rd boxes for $4.39, 500rd bricks for $44 and 5000rd cases for $430. Not the cheapest but a 500 rd brick can last a good session

I keep some around, but Iím with you. Iím not paying $.50/rd+. Thatís just ridiculous. I can pick it up in my local gun board for around $0.35. Those dudes always got some for sale if I really need some. I just cut back on shooting is all. Iíve got a ton of match grade 556 to shoot. It just sucks because 9 is what I use in competition for pistol.

There was plenty last year. . . :-) Good excuse to always stock up when it is plentiful.

Had a friend looking for some Federal HST in 9mm. Last time I bought it, it was $20/box of 50. Finally found some recently for $89/box!!! Prices are crazy right now. Of course times are crazy too. . .

If anyone is in dire need, I have some I could part with.

This happens every 4 years, hell every 2 years to some degree. If you haven't figured the pattern out yet, I don't have any sympathy for you. Early 2020 ammo was plentiful and historically cheap.
