I don't think so.

I was at my local Academy and the guy behind the store manager told me that he believes the hoarding has started again.

Probably because they had .22LR for .98 cents a box.

If AI would have more 12ga Winchester AA at .98 cents a box of 25 shells, I would have hoarded it all.

Nobody really hoards the 6.5 you are looking for in those terms...when one thinks of hoarding it's really more along the lines of 22lr, common pistol & nato rounds.

Meaning, how will I EVER survive the apocalypse/zombies with no Grendel ammo??

Check AmmoSeek: There are 19 listings for 6.5 Grendel and 492 listings to 6.8 SPC. There are just not a big supply for 6.5 Grendel right now.

If you can fit all your ammo in your safe, you donít have enough guns and you donít have enough ammo.

I've got maybe 200 +- rounds of the Wolf in the ammo safe box, I think? If anyone is interested let me know by pm and I'll look for sure. Not sure of the bullet. I prefer to shoot the brass Grendel thus the reason. I would be tomorrow before I could look for sure.

We worry so much about protesting tide pod eating teens, but in all reality we are our own worst enemies. We cause the ammo shortages and price increases.... Ammo and firearms manufacturers laugh all the way to the bank. I'm liking my bow more each year.
