    There is no shortage. It's not government.
    It's the greedy gun shops that hoard and sell online to the highest bidder.
    These people that buy are in panic mode and are willing to pay anything. What a great opportunity to the gun shops to make a killing. It's a shame you can't buy directly from the manufacturer. Not just ammo but guns too......

    Have you looked at ammo for sale on gun broker? Crazy high prices and folks are paying it. Secondly, you can buy direct from Winchester and Federal. A little higher than most places but nothing like gun broker.

    Gunbroker prices are insane. I’ve tried a couple times to buy some and it just goes stupid high. 10 boxes of Federal Fusion 6.5 Grendel sold for $585. 200 rounds will easily bring $500 plus everytime. The sellers aren’t the problem. It’s the jackwagons that keep paying those prices.

    The bubble will burst one way or the other. The market can't sustain the rediculus prices.

    I didn’t know people were blaming manufacturers? That’s just stupid.

    Vista outdoors which owns some major brands just announced a 3-15% increase in price beginning 4-1-21. Expect all others to follow suit.

    I thought my son was crazy a couple years ago when he told me how much he was making on the side with Bourbon......2 years later it's going stronger than ever.

    Buying ammunition, for shooting, by bidding on it, is insane. Unless you are buying rare collectable ammunition for a hobby.

    I don’t care to pay a little extra to get the ammo I’m looking for. But I’m not paying $55-60 for a box of ammo I was able to buy for $20-25 just 6 months ago. Hope all the hoarders that bought it up just so they can sell it to idiots willing to pay those prices get stuck with it. And I’m glad that fools and their money are parted if they aren’t any smarter than that.
