There is a thread on 1919a4.com where many people have called some of the top ammo suppliers and they are saying they are sold out and back-ordered as far a May 06. Has anyone else heard this?
Link Posted: 2/16/2006 6:42:58 AM EDT
Yep, and the reason they are? because so many people have been told they are so they are ordering the shit out of it thinking its about to become hard to get. It's only hard to get because we're buying more than ever.

Okay. I'll panic and buy a bunch at the fun show Saturday.

Fuel the panic!!

Yea, I think everyone in the AK47 forum knew this a few months ago.

Although some stores are getting it in now.
Gander Mountain, for one.

Ding ding ding!!!

Somebody made up a rumor about a shortage, and then people started buying like there wouldn't be any more. Thus suppliers' inventory was depleted and now you are seeing backorders.

Wolf is producing plenty of ammo and is importing it into the US as quickly as possible. There IS NO SHORTAGE of ammo, just a sudden and unexpected spike in demand that the supply side will soon satisfy.

It is the primer shortage of '93 all over again. (except with x39)

Shortage? Mine shipped out from SG a couple of days ago!



Of course it'll get there a lot sooner if you order it last December like I did.

+1 Wolf said they were still doing business as usual. An increase in demand due to panic has caused supply shortages.

Good luck on that. When mine "shipped out" when they were supposedly "in stock," my package showed up with everything but the 7.62commie. Instead it had a not saying it was on backorder.

<­BR>

Of course it'll get there a lot sooner if you order it last December like I did.



looks like i missed that last part. haha

The RedHorsemans "Peak Ammo" theory is right! Where's that chart when we need it.

Hey - I'm just breaking the story of Eric's witchness and Ponyboys newtness. It should NOT be considered as me condoning being witch-like or human to newt conversions.

If you had a 7.62x39mm AMMO FORT none of this would matter. That's why I'm constructing Fort .308 Win, and I don't have one yet- and at this rate may never take take delivery before I croak. Then you can check the EE for "Callgood's Gone Out of Business Sale."
