POLL: Are You Finding Ammo? If so, where?

Yesterday Rocky Mountain in Casper,WY had a pallet of .223 ($11.99/20) no limit and a shelf of 9mm (FMJ $18.99/50) no limit.

Still no primers though.

As an RSO at the local outdoor range I also sell ammo as we get it. We pass on the prices—never raise it to rip off anyone. However, resupply has been sketchy. I believe it is improving. I also direct our shooters to Big Five Sporting Goods which usually gets shipments twice a week. Remington has ramped up after the Chapter 11 and is going full speed ahead now. Personally, I have to give this advice: learn to reload. Buy components whenever you see them at decent prices, whether you think you need it at that time or not. Never hesitate to buy components. Some administrations resulted in significant hoarding. It was very hard to find Bullseye and Unique. I stocked up when the opportunity arose. That’s the lesson. Buy when the price is fair and whether you “need” it or not at that time. I’ve been reloading since around 1980 and like another posted above, I use metal media in two tumblers, have an endless supply of brass (it helps to work at a range!) and use a very simple single stage RCBS rock chucker press. It gives me total control over each stage of the reloading process. In closing, learn from this event. Promise yourself that you will not be ever in this position again. Reloading is quite safe and very easy. Start simple, reloading perhaps 1 or 2 different calibers. Over time you can acquire more dies to expand your capabilities. I’ve even resorted to melting and making some of my own bullets, for one particular caliber. Learn from this!

Price just came down $2.00. I bought these 2 weeks ago and they shot well in both my .45s.
I ordered another 10 box’s. Sierra’s HP is rather wide but all fed in my two .45s. :+1:

I would like to get into reloading someday @Edgy01 My problem is that at the moment my time is even more limited than my money. And at the moment reloading supplies seem pretty hard to come by and expensive.

I am lucky that I was stocked up before all this craziness. With the exception of two new calibers I acquired recently which have been a challenge to find affordable food for. Hopefully prices will get back closer to normal soon!

Just found these and purchased 2 box’s loaded 1 30rnd mag. and will check for accuracy.
I thought these might be an option for an urban environment. 34.99 a box. :grimacing:
Will update after the range. Any thoughts out there?

7.62x39mm 123gr. Controlled Chaos® Solid Monolithic Hunting Ammo
DESCRIPTION

The development of this technology was the result of an animal control agency’s request for a lead free bullet that would provide an extensive wound trauma with minimal pass through energy. Basically, the idea was to burst the bullet into numerous particles at a predetermined depth creating many wounds and a large temporary cavity at or near the central nervous system with proper shot placement. The agency had tried copper matrix frangible projectiles and found the penetration depth and particle size were less than what was required for proper terminal performance.The bullet is designed to penetrate to a specific depth and to fracture as the internal hydraulic pressure exceeds the hoop strength of the nose design. At the time of fracture, a massive energy spike is released as the particles break away and radiate outward from the initial trajectory path. This energy spike, and resulting temporary cavity, sends a shock wave through the animal’s circulatory and nervous systems, immediately shutting down the functioning parts of these systems.

The Controlled Chaos technology differs from the Controlled Fracturing technology in that the fracturing particles are smaller, the penetration depth of the smaller particles is less, and the initial energy transfer is greater. These features make this an excellent choice for:

Nickel-plated casings, our nickel plating process provides several key benefits, not limited to but including; improved feeding in all actions of firearms enhanced corrosion resistance over traditional brass, improved cosmetics, and ease of cleanup during reloading. Nickel-plated casings will not tarnish like brass during storage or when in contact with foreign materials such as leather, moisture, and other metals.

As with all of Underwood Ammo™ rounds, we utilize flash suppressed powder so that your vision will not be compromised if it becomes necessary to use your firearm in low light.

Not a lot of good 7.62x39 SD ammo options out there. Would be great if these work as advertised. Would want to see how they behave in gel as well as trough barriers and bones.

Yup, I will have to look on YT. Underwood is a strait up company. :+1:

Several different calibers tested, I am sure the 7.62x39 would perform like the .300 Black Out. :us:

Much better graphics to show how the bullet reacts. :us:
