Default 22lr ?

Big 5 in Capistrano Beach has tuesday ammo delivery. Line starts at about 7 a.m.. Store opens at 10 a.m.. Sold out this last tuesday by 10:30 , before the end of the line ! 1 box limit per customer .
When is this madness/hoarding going to end ?

For those of us who actually shoot every week , we are screwed. I had about 10,000 rounds for my S&W 15-22 , now I'm down to about 3500 rounds . I'll be out of range rounds in a month or so and won't use my premium hunting rounds unless hunting. Help .........

I hate to say it but I've just been shooting less. I've been spending a weekend or two a month at the lake fishing and camping instead of shooting. the problem is too many people are buying the ammo and reselling it for profit. So you have actual shooters buying, hoarders buying and resellers buying.. the demand is a lot higher than it was back in 2008 or even prior. What's really sad is I remember back during the 2008 ammo scare, the inflated gouge price for a brick of .22lr was like $20-25/box. It never went back down once things regulated, and that's pretty much the standard shelf price these days. I don't imagine you'll see much on the shelves for less than $35/brick after things regulate this time around.

My fiance went to a big 5 black friday line up twice for me, got 2 bricks of Remington GBs (that was the limit) the first time and 5 boxes of Winchester 5.56 the second time (also limit, and they only had 15 total boxes.) Doesn't seem worth it. Seems like the best way to deflate the situation is to just decrease demand as much as we can.

When do Wal-Marts usually get their shipment?

Walmart gets shipments EVERY NIGHT. (They don't ALWAYS get ammo, but they do most nights).

I call at 6:00 pm usually, ask for sporting goods, then ask what they are getting on the truck. Usually they tell me.

If the person is stubborn, call about 8:00 pm and they are stocking the shelves so you can ask again. I did this and got 750 rounds of 9mm the other day.

I call them daily, and call Big 5 every Friday morning at 10:30 am (they unload truck when they open at 10:00 am on Fridays).

Bass Pro in Manteca gets shipments sometime on the weekend.

Alquist Arms in Turlock gets shipments daily between 1pm-3pm of firearms (been looking for a glock 23, so i bug them often).

I know this is a little outside of ammo finds, but good info!

They never really had it in stock. This way when they do have it and they charge $45/box it looks like a steal.

I'm sticking with that, anything else, well...

That is insane. I only paid $94/brick for Lapua Center-X which is 20 times more accurate than that junk ammo. I also paid $50/brick for SK Std+ which included shipping. I will spend the rest of my life boycotting all the retailers that are out there now ripping off shooters.

The Big 5 in Orange on Tustin St gets their shipments on Tuesday mornings.
We start lining up around 9:15am for the 10:00 opening.
Been pretty steady with getting smaller shipments of 22lr and 9am.

Picked up 10 boxes of Blazer Brass for $13.99/50 on Saturday from Gander Mtn. Not the best price but better than most right now. They had a 10 box limit. It was not easy to find, not listed on any links but was able to go right to the product number. Shows up under the tactical section and not under the shooting section. Looks like they are out now, but here is a link. http://www.gandermountain.com/modper...liber&i=412739

It went quick, you gotta think with all of the people setup for email notifications. Getting some is equivalent to winning the lotto.
