Default Ammo Source

Yes I am well aware that there is a national ammo shortage. But in light of this I thought that there has to be someone other somewhere with some supply left.

I need 20 gauge dove and duck ammo for my son for this coming season. Anyone know of a good source? I really like Rio and have literally called and emailed them to find out if they are even running, but would take anything I can find at this point.

Thanks Guys!

I went by Scheels last weekend and picked up some cheaper FIOCCHI or however you spell it 20 gauge duck loads for $14.99 I've also had decent luck at Walmart recently with 20 gauge dove loads for about $6.50 a box

Rio is a cheaper load (they also has some at Scheels) so I mentioned the two above as comparable

My local Academy had 100 cases or so on the floor this afternoon.

If you can't find it locally, have a look at Ammoseek.com. Prices are still crazy but you can probably find what you're looking for.

There was a ton on the shelves at the grapevine bass pro today.

I bought a couple boxes of .300BO just because I was there.

Anything online is pretty gougy it seems, but like others have said the Academy stores are getting it. Best to make a habit to swing by every now and then on your lunch break or whatever and check.

There isn't a supply problem vs a pricing problem on the more common rounds...just gotta pony up if you gotta have it.

Good luck with Rio. Talked to a buddy of mine who Has a gun store. They cut his fall order by 75 percent and a 6.99 box would be $12.99

UNREAL! I love their ammo, but am not going to be gouged. That is really disappointing.

Have you checked the Federal website?
Last weekend they dumped a bunch.
I loaded up on .22 mag.

They had .243, .270, 30-06, 308, looked like all kinds of 12, 20 and I even saw .410.

The ammo is out there, it just takes a little work to find it. I see 12 and 20 gauge dove/target loads on the shelf all the time now at Academy and the LGSís that I frequent for around $7/box. Not ideal, but not terrible either.

The last couple months, Iíve been able to find pretty much whatever caliber ammo that either I need or have buddies looking for. If you will run in your LGSís a couple times a week, and as others stated, keep an eye on Ammoseek, you shouldnít have a problem finding whatever you need. Prices may not be the best on certain calibers, but for the most part, Iíve been getting stuff at halfway decent prices when I shop around. It also really helps if you have a good relationship with your LGS, and they call you when they get something in that you need.

Saw 12, 20, and 28 lead and steel at academy yesterday. Been seeing tons of shotgun ammo on the shelves for months.

Academy is loaded up, this is in a Saturday evening after being picked over. Lots of 20 and 12 gauge options in the middle behind me when I took this pic.
