If you end up needing the 30-30 lever evolution, let me know.  I am sure I could spare a box.  This ammo craziness will pass eventually again.  

Thanks much!!  I've got a box so should be good for season.  And will have to keep checking to get a couple extra when they are avail.

No problem.  Offer stands just in case you tag 20 this year.

Nice offer ! Eventually . We have a perfect storm of people home with not much to do, so recreational shooting has increased. Unrest has caused 5 million new gun owners , and they gotta feed those guns , everyone with gramps old gun has been buying ammo for it . Current gun owners have realized a solid supply at home is warranted . Will those things level off ? Sure, until the next ,thing comes along .

Industry insiders are saying they won’t be caught up until sometime in 2021  , they add that election may also have an impact pushing it well into that year ( some saying 2022 !)  . More “ unrest “ is the wild card .

Hunting ammo was the last type to become scarce, Ive  been on online sites a few times a week for the last couple months one could see that supply dwindle as the season approached. 
 

Nomads prediction, snow shovels will be in short supply after the first heavy snow .

I would have to look but I’m pretty sure I have some Remington copper solids for 12 gauge if you end up needing them.

I like to have three boxes of 20 in stock for each rifle.  I've got prob 50 rounds for the 06, 25 rounds for the 30/30 and 25 rounds for the 12g.  So plenty to hunt but i like to at least have a little stock. Went shooting yesterday and thought I should restock, just didn't think EVERYwhere would be out of ammo. 

Got plenty of pistol .410 and .45,  12 g shot, 20g shot, .22 and muzzleloader tackle at least.

My Walmart had most rifle rounds, not a big selection but at least some.

Was at Dicks yesterday , ya I know ....

Walked by the ammo shelve ,mostly empty, but they had the Hornady 7mm08 I use and for  less then Buds, along with no shipping of course . They had .243, 7mm mag , and some others but I didn’t look too much ,oh I grabbed two more of those Hornady . 

Good example for a good supply  is my buddy, he’s going out west on an elk hunt with a borrowed 7mm mag, he bought 80 rounds, ended up shooting 40 on my  short range , first box just getting used to the Magnum ,second trying to group better .

Later we went to another spot on the farm where he could shoot to 300 yards , he was 6-7 inches high, frustrated and burned up box #3..... one left to take out west ,where they’ll make him shoot before he hunts . Had to track down more, during the shortage ,not fun !

His error was he was placing his left hand on the shooting stick not the rifle ,so that was causing the high hits .

I typically shoot 60 -100 of my hunting rounds prior to the season ,if I don’t have to,make adjustments ,more if I change things ( I moved my daughters red dot,lower this year , as an example.)

In fairness he should only need a shot or two once he gets out there to make sure the scope didn't get bumped in transit. But always better to have too much than too little especially for weird calibers. I always bring at least 2/3 boxes of my handloads. Even the store bought .300wby can be tough to find in spots in normal times

Sure I agree . But without ammo ,one just owns an expensive club . I’m a be prepaid guy, topped off 4 gas cans last week, bought 24 D and 40 AA batteries, and my stock of 1pound green propane tanks is up to 20 or so for my Buddy Heaters, and Coleman stove . Canning 30 pounds of meat Thursday .  I have three red dot sights that use CR2032 batteries,they last along time , yet I have a spare taped to the stock of each one , just how I roll .

I’ve been trying to get my hands on another couple of boxes of 30-06. It’s ridiculous how hard it is to find your basic hunting ammo

If anyone is shooting 270wsm, I have a box of Federal I am more than willing to part with. No charge. WNY only.

Perhaps sometime next year depending on a number of political and social occurrences. Keep in mind production runs are scheduled up to two years out , and some of the less selling and odd ball stuff is only made once every 2-3 years as it is .
