Yup, posted yesterday by Orest Michaels,

We have just removed the HXP .30-06 from estore and posted the web site as sold out – not taking orders till further notice. All customer orders already in house will be filled.

Will provide more info next week . No other information to provide at this time.

I smell a major price increase in the works.

I bet they're just all out. There's been huge demand for popular calibers like .30-06.

Prices only ever go up -- when it comes back it'll probably be more expensive, yes.

A couple years ago they figured the HXP would last another 10 years from that time. They ran out 8 years early...

Glad I got my 10 cans before they ran out.

This whole Ammo crisis is really lousy for the young folks in the sport. I dream of a day when I can shell out the dough for a few tins of ammo when I smell a price hike in the works... why must higher education take so long.

Wow I didn't even realize they were close to running out. Here's hoping they get some back in before my stash runs dry.

Don't worry, they will get more in, its just going to cost a whole lot more.

yeah on the 22nd they posted no more orders for .30car and .22lr. i guess my order must have broke the camels back. sorry. i was just lucky enough to barely get my order in on time.

Got the surplus in the clips. No one was home yesterday to sign so will be delivered today.

They have had more orders than they could process in a timely fashion for so long, they may simply be trying to clear up the backlog.
Which means that they really DO have ammo, and are using this interval to clear it.

If they're actually sold out, it's very bad news indeed. But I lean toward the backlog clearance idea because it's very unlikely to deplete stocks of ALL ammo at the same time.

Pure speculation, but hopefully they just need time to catch up and devise a method to sell at a faster rate. Hopefully not a depletion.

Look at it this way. The day they stopped the new orders they still had 90-120 days worth of orders to fill. So in 3-4 months maybe they will have a new estimate as to what (if any) they have left.

With that said.... I have one 30.06 can for sale ONLY $789.99 shipped. PM if your interested.



j/k :p

I've got 4 unopened cans of the boxed HXP in my stash. That should last a couple years at the rate I shoot my Garand. Been saving the brass and will continue to do that, so if they are truly out, I'll just start loading my own.

Me too, plus a ton of lead and Lyman .30 cal bullets moulds:)

*sigh* I just cancelled an ammo order a few weeks ago because cash was in short supply. I figured "The CMP will always have more Garands and ammo..." :(

That is too bad! Wife was home so all ten cans delivered. Son Gets 6 and I am taking 4 so now we each have 9 cans. Only problem for him is he has to supply ammo for two (his girlfriend is a really good shot. Won't shoot my M1 carbine because it is too small!).
