Anyone see #10 or 11 percussion caps anywhere?  I've been playing with BP revolvers a lot lately, and I have more than enough powder and ball but I can't find caps anywhere.  It's a sad day when the ammo shortage has extended to early 19th century technology.

dont trespass anywhere anytime soon.  With that price of ammo no one is getting a warning shot! 

Future son in law bought his first gun , a .22 semi auto, but they had no ammo for it , so I gave him 200 rounds . Got invited to lunch at my old firehouse , their new LT said his dad has an old 25-20

After the gym , I’m filling the bathtub with ammo and rolling around in it !  Pics to follow .

I'm going through the same thing.I picked up a few blackpowder rifles and a SxS shotgun.I've been trying to keep it traditional,but had to switch to 209 primers.I'm not sure if you can make the switch with pistols,but might be an option to look into.

Keep an eye on graf & sons and be ready to order they go quick.  https://www.grafs.com/

I think it is already improving. Sportsman's warehouse was selling 1000 round 9mm for 59 cents a round. Beats the 70-100 per

The trend is somewhat spotty some are finding a bit here and there . A recent marketing survey says the majority of gun owners still want to build up, their supplies considerably, when most would buy two boxes a year and now want ten to twenty it’s going to take awhile , we’ll never see prices like in the past .

Where I buy 9mm ball is $21 a box , double what it was not long ago but I guess cheap today .

Luckily I am well stocked, I refuse to pay more than .20$ a round for 9mm for now.

I should have enough 9mm to last me 50 years between ammo and components, especially if I can keep finding deals here and there.

I have been slowly picking away at $20 boxes of 50 for 9mm lately. I refuse to pay more than that. I call around daily and if I find some, it’s always a 2 box limit.

Where I go it’s 8 box limit per day, two each of handgun, center fire , rim fire and shotgun .

Today I only bought 5 , 2 300blk, 2 Hornady SST 20 ga , 1 .380 ball , really was after more 7mm08, but they didn’t have any today .

Their ammo tends to run more towards tactical and law enforcement use then hunting .

Also my buddy wanted accutips , 20ga, I’m reading that they have been very hard to find for sometime and Remington may have sold off that line to Federal ?

Picked up 7 boxes of Blazers locally from 2 different stores today. First one was a 2 box limit. Second location I told him that it’s for my rifle. He said well then might as well take 5 boxes then as rifle Ammo is a 5 box limit!

Grabbed some 5.56 for the future sil and a box of .38 for daughter #2 .

Their prices have risen a bit as their cost has gone up . Came up short on a certain .308 round though .

How much was the 9mm

I didn’t ask. Only bought 100rnds .22. $5 per 50 for Aguila. 

Limit 2 boxes or 1 bulk for all ammo.

all this rain lately has canceled action pistol matches. saving me 50-75 rounds each shoot. i wish the sun would shine though. i don't mind burning the ammo. it's what it's for!
