Just dropped by the Sportsman's Warehouse in Riverdale, UT. Seems that I caught them unpacking shipments of stuff from ammo suppliers.

There are quite a few boxes of bullets on the shelves.

There was a shopping cart mostly full of primers. Noticed a case of 6 1/2 small rifle, several bricks of CCI 200 among the lot.

They even had a case of 22LR. Before they got the box off the pallet, I had one brick (taking the Boy Scouts shooting Friday), and someone else had a second brick.

Talk from the staff says that we are starting to see the end of the shortage.

People buying gold and stockpiling ammo and components is not a vote of confidence in our government.

I'm not sure of the efficacy of attaching sins to a goat and driving her out into the wilderness. I am sure that we can't help the murder rate in Oakland, Chicago or DC by projecting social ills on a 30 round rifle magazine and driving it out.

I was in one of the Gander Mt in Houston yesterday. Didn't check the reloading isle.

As to factory ammo the only thing I didn't see was 32s and 380s in pistol ammo. Plenty of everything else. Plenty of 22 rimfire of all persuations. More shotshells than you could shake a stick at. Pallets of cases.

Plenty of rifle ctgs too. Even 223 and 7.62X39s

Factories must be catching up.

The GM here, has nada new on the reloading shelves. Still short on handgun ammo; .380s are nowhere; .22LRs scarce. Shotshells coming out the wazoo, though.

Was in Montgomery last weekend, Bass Pro shops had tons of ammo, almost all handgun calibers, same for rifles, quite a few rimfire brands, a whole aisle of shotgun ammo, lots of different powder and even small pistol primers if you asked them to bring them out.

The shop at the range in Fort Worth I shoot at had a few types of primers, last weekend. Quite a bit of ammo, too.

I'm still looking for an 8# keg of H-335.

The shelves aren't as empty, but there's still a way to go.
I'm not a gunwriter, that's 458 win. I'm just a gun-nut in Alaska.
