Default Crazy ammo find.

Me & my grandson ran in to Academy this morning just cause I's in Sherman.

They had a few 20 rd boxes of green tip .223, a few 25 rd boxes of 12 ga, a few 25 rd boxes of 28 ga, & 3 100 rd cases of 20 ga.

Limit 2 boxes per customer. I should have gotten 2 of the 20 ga but only got 1 and a box of .223.

Now off to walmart to grab a list of crap for the wife. Of course, I had to check out sporting goods since I's in the area (my grandson Ethan needed him a few more "hotwheels".

Walked over to sporting goods' "empty" glass cabinet only to notice it wasn't EMPTY ! There was one single box of ammo. I told the clerk I wanted it (been looking for this for weeks/months). Asked her if there was any more hidden and she produced a single box for Ethans rifle!

Rather have diff 30-30 ammo but I ain't complaining!

There was a 2 box limit here too, but they definitely fit the bill !

Hopefully that’s a sign of ammo demand easing a little. Congratulations on the good fortune!

Dudes, the way I'm reading the post is he bought at Academy (20 ga & 223) then went to Wally and got the 222 and 30-30... Maybe I'm wrong and just need a bit more to drink.

Sad times when the republic gets excited to find ammo.
Glad you found some calibers you’ll put food on the table with!

I'm a bow guy.

Bought my grandson this .222 (used) when he was 4. It's a Western Auto or something like that. Oldern dirt. Never expected to find ammo for it at WM today!

On another note.... This thing is a tack driver with the cheap ammo we bought for it back then.

Yes, it was just a joke. I was excited when I walked into Academy and they had some 22 mag on the shelf. It is kind of sad how excited I felt over seeing some ammo on a shelf.

Anyhow, glad you scored some ammo, OP.

I've heard a lot is starting to show up on the shelves lately. My local stores are still struggling but hopefully it's a sign the tides are turning. I was able to grab another 10 boxes of Hornady LeverEvolution 30-30 today and a buddy got me 10 6.5 PRC ELD-X.

Hope its coming back.. and with "2020 prices"
I have a lot of Sigs.. like their ammo too.

https://www.sigsauer.com/ammunition.html

They have some components available..
I was wanting some more 300blkout, signed up last week as it was out of stock.
Sig emailed me last night, 8pm, it was available.. 3 box max order.
So i sent the funds, received an email today that it had shipped.
They offer free shipping with a $100+ order.

I got some in 357 last week actually. There's one store by me that gets the LeverEvolution in pretty regularly, I took the last 10 today but I'll check there this week and see if I can get you any.
