    Cabelas had a shit ton of 12ga birdshot today...

    Walmart’s here I only see 28ga, some 16ga, and 12ga target load, with the occasional 410/20ga box floating around...

    For you guys looking for 308 In the area I definitely recommend stopping in to see big Gene at priorityone. He has pmc bronze and a couple other brands up there. Just stocked the shelf today.

    Here is my take:

    1. Ammo can be found. It is out there but you have to pay $$$$. For people with money to spend, its hard to swallow but they will pay. If you don't have money, its is total BS. This is part of the gun control big test. Make Ammo very expensive, problem partially solved in their little minds. I for one can afford nearly a $1/round of 9mm FMG 115g but won't pay for it. Period. If I need to shoot, I will dip into my stock.
    2. Without Wally World in the hand gun and certain long arms ammunition business anymore, its allowing other retailers to do as they wish and set the market. Wally World was a bit of an equalizing factor when it came to pricing.
    3. Once the new shooters craze is over, things may in fact get better. More supply of ammo on the market with less demand equals lower prices.
    4. Biden is a wild card. With a Republican controlled Senate and the SCOTUS we have now, I am not as worried about ammo pricing. All relies on the January 2021 Georgia runoff. If for some stupid reason the Dems win the GA seats and the Senate goes to 50/50 with Harris have the deciding vote... all bets are off and we can expect the ammo gouging to continue.

    All IMHO.

    I agree, the Georgia deal has become as important as the general election if not more important . I suspect there will be fraud tried in this one as well .

    Stopped at Walmart in Hatfield today and took a peek in the ammo section. They were unloading a couple of carts full of shot shells, 22, 308, 300 win mag and some other stuff I couldn*t see the labels..
    I asked the guy working there when the next delivery would be in and he said that this was inventory that they had for weeks but were keeping in the back until after the election* He said they should be getting regular deliveries now...

    That makes as much sense as keeping toilet paper in the back until "after covid".

    I don't doubt he told you that, but it doesn't make any sense.
    What would the reason be for not selling inventory?

    They hid the guns and ammo in some stores, expecting to be looted.

    It*s funny, I remember you saying that I think on another thread.. I was really surprised when he said it.. but, a lot of the ammo was not in cases, they were in 50/20 ct boxes. It looked like you would expect if they unloaded the shelves onto a warehouse cart..

    I can shed a little light on Walmart bs.

    The employees control the inventory that you see.

    Long story short, wally world employees keep things for themselves and their friends to buy at a certain time and in this case at a major price reduction.

    I am certain they hide ammo from time to time for themselves to purchase at the end of the shift.

    Just something to consider with the wally world.
