Ha i went to one walmart store last Thrusday and they was a line of at least 10 people way before 4:30am and one woman was setting in her lawn chair first in line and would not move until she had her 3 bricks of .22LR ammo.

Then i ask her would she sell just one box to me and she said no they are going on Gun broker for 4 times what she paid for them.

That's when i said heck with it and I'll just wait until the panic crap is over before i buy some more. This woman does this every day at every walmart i been too i have seen her setting there in her little lawn chair every time.

Kind of ironic that you can get all the deer rifle ammo you want for anything other than 308 WIN or 30-30 WIN. Those are two of the calibers that people have always recommended because ammo for them is so readily available....until everyone wants ammo....and then you can't hardly find any ammo in those two calibers.

I was at Cabela's on Saturday and they had plenty of 243 WIN, 25-06 REM, 257 WBY, 6MM REM, 270 WIN, 270 WBY, 280 REM, 7MM REM, 7MM WBY, 7x57MM, 30-06, 300 WIN MAG, 300 WBY and everything on up. No 22LR, 223 REM, 308 WIN or 30-30 to be had. No buckshot to be had and no handgun ammo for any of the common calibers to be had.

I been looking for some 30-06 for about a month now. I got lucky and found 2 boxes at academy sports in west Knoxville for 15.99 a box. i bought 2 boxes and now i can't find nothing. because i was going to buy a box a week until i think i got enough to last a couple of years.

But i was wrong on that so i'm going into reloading just in case i have to reload a few hundred rounds.

I went in wal- mart out jackson to possibly buy some 308 ammo for my new remington 750 308. They had a good shipment this morning. I saw all the opened boxes that have the ammo stored inside. I wanted a couple of boxes to sight it in and to no avail the cashier said they have 8-10 guys who pull out the lawn chairs and wait for the 7 am selling time. I wish these guys would hurry up and get all they need. I would like to sight it in before deer season. If anyone has info how to join the wmlcc let me know. I need a box or two of 308 ammo.


If I had seen this for myself I would have tried to call their home office. May not do any good but I sure would try.

I know it's happening but what I don't understand is how anybody is making enough money selling small batches of ammo on Gunbroker to make it worthwhile. Sure they are making a big percentage markup from regular retail prices but the total net profit can't be worthwhile unless they are riding a bicycle to the store. Say a guy buys 3 bricks of 22's at $20/brick then sells them for $70/brick. That's $150 profit theoretically. At todays gas prices they are probably spending at least $20 just going to the store to buy the ammo. That assumes they get it the 1st time they try which is a stretch I think. Then when they sell it, they have to come up with a box, shipping tape and drive to the local UPS store which is more gas. There are likely multiple buyers for the 3 bricks which may translate into multiple trips to UPS to ship - more cost in gas. By the time the dust settles they aren't making much money for their time.

This is just a hobby for them, they have to have something to do in between getting their Obama checks. Their gas and time is free so it doesn't matter....
