Let me ask you?

The ammo companies have run out of ammo to sell, will they be able to get more while the virus is active? Are the ammo makers shut down?

Not sure....I’ll bet there is a huge pile waiting to be sold though. I’d look to smaller producers near you first. I’d get my body armor out now. kaliphornia is in lock down and the less thans with no paychecks will be looking for food soon.

The big ammo sellers don't seem to keep up with demand and how can the makers stay open under the virus? It may take a long time... if ever for ammo to come back. We get riots and government won't let ammo companies open again except for government.

What's your thoughts on this????

I guess that depends on how many times youve seen this BS before and how prepared you are now.
In my case,,I have bunches and bunches I could sell....But unless or untill it tripples, I'll just watch....

Most decent boxed ammo was already around 20.00 a box.....bulk ammo is where the rubber meets the road....from .30 to a buck is a crisis. Just heard that
Remington and Winchester couldn’t fill all the backorders in 2 years.....so it will be neck beards from here on out.

The interesting part of this crisis is the fact they shut down gun shows. This limits the neck beard pretty hard.

SG Ammo sent 75% of staff home due to government order and are waiting to see if they are ruled a necessary imdustry. Meantime they are selling ammo, change what's available each day, usually two flavors per day and shipping fast as can. Have other vendors shipping and not price gouging. Specialty components seem easy to get as have a lot inbound. Just had 1,000 110 grain 6.8 Accubonds in today. Will have more ammo when this is over than before but loading 22 Nosler, 6.8 spc II, 458 SOCOM and any rifle/pistol can cast or sage bullets to feed cheaply.
