    the last several years it seems like ammo supply has ups and downs. Years prior the shelves were always decently stocked. I'm not sure what happened.

    What has happened is that those of us that have always kept a large to a huge stock of ammo have been made nervous by the various indicators and are adding to those stocks. We don't buy boxes of ammo, we buy cases.

    Next, those of that have always been sort of dabblers on the periphery of the prepper/survivalist movement have suddenly been shaken out of their slow advance and decided that maybe if the entire nation goes down the road that the many big liberal run cities in the American Socialist States they might be better off spending some money on guns and ammo instead of the next upsize of their already huge widescreen TV.

    Even the liberals in the places that are burning and getting scared and buying guns and ammo. I looked at my favorite online gun store today (Able Ammo) and you can't buy a pump shotgun. The same is for buckshot ammo. The shelves at Walmart are mostly bare.

    As the violence increases this is going to turn into desperation. Already the price gouging is started. Many of those even here have only a limited arsenal. that is fine if you are bugging out and live in a bigger city. You only need what you can carry because the roads are going to be rapidly impassable if people try to leave in mass. Those like me though that are locked in where we are and will die here defending our BOL there can not be too much ammo, too many guns or too much of the things that can be used to make things that we will need to secure our places. i have thousands of 357, 9mm, 307 & 308 Caliber bullets for reloading. thousands of primers and enough powder to blow my three acres into orbit.

    People are getting well past nervous. When people are nervous their spending habits change a lot. This year is going to be a living hell in the US. Election years are always bad. The media will always try to promote an end of the world fear unless we vote the way they tell us to. Throw in the fact that we are teetering on the edge of civil war and the Democrats are running a senile nut with an as yet unknown but possibly an avowed socialist Vice-1president that is going to BE President before HER (there are no men worthy of the job in the Democratic party) first year is done if they win has a lot of people, even many Democrats VERY nervous.

    Only people with an observational ability similar to Alfred E. Newman (Who, me worry???) of Mad Magazine are not nervous and thinking about maybe grabbing a few boxes of ammo and a gun if they don't already have one.

      Millions of new gun owners, buying firearms at an unprecedented rate. Firearm companies shifting into overtime (could explain some reasonable price increases) to try and meet the demand. New firearm purchases require ammo to feed them. A chain reaction develops and prices go up. I am just glad I stocked up BEFORE this all hit. I am hesitant to go to the range, until I can get more ammo stocked up. I don't want to draw down my supply.

    I went to find some 7.62 x 25 and many places were sold out. Didn't realize it was so darn popular..

    There are a lot of people that have older foreign-made surplus pistols that they picked up over the years in the past at gun shows. Most like me only have a couple of boxes of ammo on hand. Unless they have alternate pistols in a more common caliber they are rapidly buying up existing stocks. Even in Russia, China, and Pakistan that excellent old round has been replaced by various 9mm offerings.
