I was checking the devastation in the market today and saw this story on bloomberg.

True, I thought you were referring to the article being old.

I started a thread last week about not being able to find 9mm ammo, but I've since found several boxes, and don't intend to ever run low again.

I ordered some bullets (that's bullets, not loaded ammunition) from Powder Valley a few weeks ago and am still waiting.

I shoot 9mm almost weekly. I'm down to 18 boxes so I ordered a case from Natchezss.

bass pro = expensive..

I need more .40 as well...so Skidmark, if you find some let me know. I checked Walmart in Grapevine and in Keller with no luck. Might try walmart on Rufe Snow tomorrow on the way back from my CHL class. Im using my last box tomorrow for the class.

Academy in Grapevine has had some in stock..but they are like $2-3 more per box than wally world

Anyone want to split a case of .40 if we can find it? The-Armory has 1000rounds of PMC for $269

Walmart closest to my house had plenty of target practice 9mm shells this morning . 100 rounds for $20.00 . It seems like I paid less than that last time I bought a box of shells .
