Default .357 magnum ammo shortage?

Is it just me or is there a shortage of .357 magnum ammo? There used to be enough cheap ammo from winchester,fiocchi and magtech to go around but recently I've had no luck online or in stores. Usually I can pick up a box of 500rnd reloads at the local gunshow but no dice either. Anyone know what's up?

Are you serious? Have you not noticed the litany of ammo shortage postings on ALL gun forums, since the election? Rightly or wrongly, folks are buying up everything they can get.

I know ammo for automatics were always being bought by the truckload but I had hoped the .38spl and .357 ammo would sell out a little slower. I guess I'll stick to shotgun sports since it doesn't look like that market has been hit.

I started buying in September, 50/50 chance, I was right. Still having trouble finding Bear Creek 200 gr. SWC bullets.
