Well, you definitely should get more. I hope you make a lot of money, cus ammo is scarce as hen's teeth.
I make what would have been a lot in the 90s. Now, I'm looking for more. :)

So, how's everyone ammo supplies holding up?
Doing OK. But I stocked up over the last decade.
If you were a guy owner thru the Sandy Hook shortages and you don't have ammo you need now, well, that's just your own fault.

I just returned from a 4 state trip for work. I stopped at various gun stores on that trip. Ammo supplies are almost nothing. Your average strip mall gun store has 10 boxes of off ball caliber ammo, maybe 10 long guns and 10 handguns. I found one decent store in a town of 3500, that saw this coming and stocked up. They still had a good supply, and were selling by ration. For example 4 boxes(20 per) of .223.

There is also a primer shortage. The critical component to firearms, that nearly can't be duplicated outside of a factory. The average person could build a gun far easier than a primer. Gun shops are being told a 1 year shortage on ammo. I doubt that. Based on experience of previous shortages, I'm going to say 3-5 years of normal use.

What you have is what you have.

BTW
If you had invested $1000 in .223 Ammo in December @ $0.33/round, today you could realize a profit of over $3,000.

There has been a primer shortage for a while... I've been looking, I can find them, but damn they are nothing short of gold costs sometimes.

I have a decent stash, but I never like to shoot without at least replenishing. But my God, the price. 5.56 is 0.70$ to 1.40$ a round. It's crazy.

I haven't watched him in a while.

It's kind of like watching someone re-invent the wheel from scratch.
