I wouldn't expect a straight guy to have any of those...

You're overrun by 6.5 bullets, though, aren't you? 😉


No. I’m not even a little gay. .17, .22, .25, 7mm, .30, .35, .375, .40, .41, .44, .45, .50


I am..........disturbed.

So they're pushing out less hunting stuff. To keep up with the demand. And EVERYBODY is still panic buying everything.

If everyone would calm down for A couple months supplies might catch back up and balance out.

I agree...Took wife nearly 2 months to find 6.5 CM Hornady American Whitetail.Even my .308 is tough getting what i want.

I have some of those. 97 new Federal to be exact & they’re even primed with CCI primers. Send me $20 and cover shipping and they’re yours.

I bought 140 gr nossler partition spitzers (sp?) today 50 for 42.00 bucks I was so surprised to find them that I spent that much on them. My son and I will not need ammo for may years hopefully.

I know there's an ammo/powder/primer shortage, but damn, there's apparently even been a run on hunting bullets too! Geeez!

When do y'all think this crap will end?



Well, you hadn't noticed this six months ago. I have some extra 270 bullets if you might need a handful.


I really need some fifteen cent 6.5 100 grainers. LOL

I bought a box of Rem .260 140 gr "match" ammo Monday at SW.; At $40, it was not too unreasonably priced ( usually Corelokt runs 35 or better), it was available, I'm a little short on hunting ammo that gun likes (140's only), might want to get the wife and/or kid some trigger time, and may not get around to reloading any by season....... soooo. I could have bought 2, maybe should have. Might still, if available next week.

Anyone have info on how these (or similar) work on game? Expansion, wound channel, penetration?

Are you looking for reloading components or loaded ammo. I picked up 2 boxes of 7mm-08 American Whitetail 139g interlocks for a friend and then they changed their mind. I load my own so I don't have much use for factory stuff.

The shop I bought them at had a 2 box limit luckily or I'd have been stuck with more. I just bought them a few weeks ago so I paid more than they are normally worth. I'd have to dig up the receipt but they were a little over $40/ box plus tax. It was kind of pricey for American Whitetail stuff but I was standing in the little shop when they brought out 2 cases. With a 2 box limit they were still sold out in about 10 minutes so I figured they must not have been priced above the market.

I'll PM you BB. I do reload. But don't have anything in 7mm-08 so I'll take factory stuff.

I inherited so much 270 components that I thought about buying one...never owned one.

Pretty simple.
There's a finite amount of raw materials available and a finite number of lines that an ammo maker can run during a time span.
They are narrowing that to the most profitable calibers and styles.
Example.
9mm vs 380
If you were a company would you load 9mm or 380?
The demand dictates.
I would convert a 270 line to 5.56 in a second right now. That's where the demand is.
Same with components.
Now that the best majority of deer seasons have ended is say that production will be entirely covered to bulk 5.56, 308 , and 6.5 creedmore match.
That's what I would do if I was a production manager for vista or winchester.
Make hay when the sun shines. 270 hunting ammo can a suck it. I'm running the ammo people are standing in line for.

I have several hundred speer 130g hotcores and a few boxes of 150 hotcores and some 150 partition seconds. Let me know if you're in a pinch and want to try some of those.
