Will the ammo scare get as bad as it did in 2013?
It's already way worse, a box of 50 9mm rounds is going for like $45 at most places in my area when it was only something in the range of $20 before the nigger tantrums.
>>7533 Also there's jack shit for stock in regards to the more common rounds in general.
Locally, 9mm shot up to 10mm prices at about $30 for a 50 round box, .308 is nearly $2 per round, and everything else shot up by 10-20%. .32 is dirt cheap and plentiful around me for some reason, so that's what I've been shooting. It's only about a dollar or two more than a box of CCI mini-mags which have been a steady $12-$13.
>tfw I have so much I don't need to worry
I just want to know if they're still manufacturing primers. Finally have a die set, and technically no pistol powder but it hardly matters if I can't put the plug in the base of the pan to hold the oil --er, powder.
>>7736 >Oil All the oils I know of that you could be describing are high explosives meaning they'll blow up/blow out the barrel of anything short of a four gauge shotgun. Just use Potassium Nitrate mixed with either sugar or charcoal, anon. Technically you could become an old film hobbyist and then if some of that film were ground up into silver nitrate/cellulose, it would be a shame if someone loaded it as a powder.
Also before I forget to post them...
>>7736 from what ive heard the shortage is copper, as the mexican mines are still shut down. i have not personally verified that though
It sucks as I couldn't buy ammo until recently. My previously anti-funs family just recently let me buy guns because they realized how fucked the world was. I have like 500 rounds of .223 so I don't feel absolutely fucked, but I do wish I had more. I will buy more when the prices hopefully go back to normal, but I don't think thats gonna be anytime soon.
>>7769 Well at least you got your family to stop being retarded in regards to guns in the process. Having a support network in uncertain times is as important as being armed.
>>7777 Fucking quads checked. But anyways yeah, a year or two ago I was bitching about BLM and more stuff to my parents and they basically told me that I need to be fair or treat people with respect. After the George Floyd killing my dad went in my room and asked me for advice for his first pistol. It feels good because now there is two guns in my room when last year there was 0.
>>7779 If gun shows are being allowed to operate in your area I'd suggest hitting one up as early as possible to spot some relatively sanely priced ammo. I always look for the people who set up at the back wall first because there's always one or two vendors that are selling old military surplus guns from before everything was standardized into 9mm/5.56/7.62 NATO etc. but they always have decent stock of more common modern rounds that they keep hidden under their tables for some reason and they're usually much cheaper than every other table when it comes to buying individual boxes instead of bulk I genuinely don't now why some of them do this, it's been going on since way before this panic buying and none of the actual firearms they sell ever uses shit like 9mm so why stock it and why keep it hidden?. Obviously I look to see if anyone is selling bulk first, but since that's pretty rare right now it's best to hunt down the guy who is selling boxes of 50 rounds for ten dollars cheaper than everyone else. Fuck this post is a mess but I'm tired as shit and not fixing it so deal with it.
>>7781 And by early as possible I mean get to the door like an hour and a half ahead of opening time at least so you can bust in like a nigger charging into walmart on black friday and be the first to spot any bulk stuff assuming there's any left.
