I forgot to mention... I went to Bass Pro to look for 150 grain hunting ammo for the .308. Got 2 boxes. 40 rounds. Will last 7 years if I hunt with it and zero my rifle with it every year. Maybe longer if it zeros the same as milsurp.
But as for pistol ammo... Bass Pro, my local bulk brick and mortar discount ammo store, is still not back up to pre-Obama levels in inventory. No real bulk availability. There was a LOT of Remington green box 9mm on the clearance table, and a few odds and ends of other stuff. If I was desperate for ammo I could have brought home at least something for each of my calibers. There was no .357, but there was a few boxes .38, for instance. And I only have the 4 types of pistol to feed. .380, .357/38, .40, and .45
Prices for basic ball varied widely. The spot where the $21 boxes of .380 was empty, but the brand next to it was plentiful. But that cost $32 a box. So it looks like the market needs to settle, still.
