I've been all around LA County looking for ammo (5.56 / .223) and while I've been largely unsuccessful, I can't help but notice (as did others in line) that almost every store I'm in DOES HAVE plenty of .30-06, .270 Win, and .300 Win.

Sucks for me because I don't have anything in those calibers...but wondering now if I should have

Just buy the ammo and one day you can trade it off or buy the gun to shoot it.

Well that's what I would do.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 11:57:42 AM EDT
Don't forget 7mm because there's shitloads of it on the shelf at the wal-mart here. I guess because west texas dog size deer need the ever-living shit blown out of them.

.270

.243

I've been considering building up a .300 Win Mag as of late. I guess now would be as good a time as any. I have a Ruger M77 MK2 in .30-06, but it's my deer rifle and is nothing fancy.

Plenty of 10mm and .17hmr.

If you get a 10mm you can pretend you have a powerful gun.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 11:59:42 AM EDT
they only ammo I can find here is 17HMR and shotgun ammo
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:01:44 PM EDT
8mm and 7.62x54r are still available, and for about the same price, I'm tempted to buy a hakim, or fn-49 as future panic protection.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:01:53 PM EDT
.17 HMR,
.22-250
.243
.270
.30-30
.30-06
.300 Win Mag.
.45 LC

These are the ones I'm seeing at Wal*Mart on a regular basis.

.300 Weatherby Magnum has actually come down in price.

Even the shotgun ammo here has been disappearing at frequent intervals. Walmart seems to do a pretty good job of restocking it quickly, .22LR, .45. etc on the other hand......

I have a .22-250 lone eagle -- ammo is always in stock. I need to get optics for it and then I might start shooting it.

'06 .270 .17hmr .22 wrm

.300 winmag some shotgun

.45 ACP believe it or not....

9mm is like finding gold

5.56mm is a do-do egg.

.22 lr I got lucky and got a box of fed auto match, felt like winning the fuckin lottery...
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:05:11 PM EDT
Based on what I still see available at the distributors website

327
454 Casull
45 GAP

Off-beat stuff I don't think I've ever heard of like 480 Ruger or 460 S & W

7.62x54r and .40 S&W seemed to do well. Glad I have weapons in both calibers, will have way more soon. In November, I bought a conversion barrel for my Glock 22 to shoot cheap 9mm ammo.. LOL.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:05:33 PM EDT
7mm-08.

Walmart only has .410 and .270

Everywhere I go in Northern Virginia, I can find plenty of 7mm Rem Mag, and .270Win. along with varied and smaller amounts of other "bolt-action rifle" calibers.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:09:12 PM EDT
I have a .270 and shoot it a lot. That being said, the cheapest ammo you'll ever find for it is around $20 for a box of 20 rounds. Might as well pay retard prices for .223 or 5.56.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:11:00 PM EDT
7mm anything, 30-06, 45-70.....there are couple others.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:11:27 PM EDT
Although I am not hurting for any caliber, .220 Swift and 7mm Mag are plentiful.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:11:44 PM EDT
I've seen a lot of 22-250, 7MM, and .300 WM

It was the first time I went out looking for ammo in about 6 months.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:12:04 PM EDT
i been taking this time to buy .270, 7mm mag, .22mag & believe it or not 7.62x39..... the last one really surprises me when i find it, i dont own an ak but for 5 bucks what the hell.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:12:21 PM EDT
How can none of you 'tards mention the one round that is still in stock, works in a gun everyone should have, and is a practical-tactical-mankiller...

12Ga 2 3/4". Still on EVERY shelf in my AO.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:13:49 PM EDT
Can still get .38 s&w for the old Police Positive.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:13:50 PM EDT
I picked up a .243, .270, .30-06 and .30-30 after the last craziness, still want to add 7/08, 7mag, .300mag to round out the fudd arsenal

Closest Academy had easily over a hundred boxes of 7mag

Surprisingly a lot of .30-06 too, mostly premium stuff
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:14:37 PM EDT
9mm is like finding gold


Seems to be plenty of 9mm in Los Angeles. Picked up a 250-round value pack today (.30/round FMJ) just because I'll shoot it, even though I wasn't looking for it. They had plenty more and I've seen it around.

I forgot to mention also plenty of 7mm and .45acp around LA

The cost of a shitty ak or sks may really surprise you now.

I bought a 270 win bolt gun in this madness. The gun was cheap, and the ammo plentiful. I had been contemplating getting a gun in this caliber for awhile anyways...but seeing ammo for it plentiful during this time solidified my desire for one.

Good gun too. Two weeks later, it took its first hog. :)

There is a shortage ???

I reload / handload so there is no shortage....

Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:17:33 PM EDT
Can't you get an AR pattern rifle in .243?
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:18:45 PM EDT
The most plentiful cartridge seems to be .270 Winchester. Certainly at WalMart it is the most common, although even so, there weren't that many boxes on the shelves, and they wanted $60 per box. They also had small quantities of 7mm Remington Magnum, .300 Winchester Magnum, and .410 and 20 ga. shotshells. I think I saw a box of another cartridge, but that's about it. No pistol ammo.

The local gun shops have a larger variety, but limited quantities no matter what the cartridge is. They are also all charging exorbitant prices. They almost all have 8X56R, though; probably the only thing I saw that didn't have its price raised, although the shops here have always wanted a bit too much for it (no point in paying $1.50 per round when I have been able to get it on clips for 75 cents per round, until recently).
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:18:47 PM EDT
and 12 and 20 guage shotgun ammo, lots of 7.62x39 here also.

9 pellet 00 Military Buck from Federal at every store here. Slugs too. Tactical enough for me.

I might take a picture if I go to walmart later. Typically you've got 12ga military buck, a few boxes of slugs, some 8-shot crap, some random 20ga, some .270/7mm/.22-250 or such and a lonely box of .45 Colt.

Handgun or common riflle rounds, or anything rimfire equals SOL... But shotguns are G2G.
Link Posted: 3/18/2013 12:21:19 PM EDT
Locally:

.17
.327
.40
.243
.30-06 (in the expensive flavors)
(just about all the magnum rifle cartridges)

If you're going that big, quit fucking around and get a .50

There was a thread a while back on that "military 00 buck".
You might want to rethink that as a go-to round if you have other options

.50 BMG is still pretty available..
