    At Four Corners in Castle Rock there is quite a bit of 22 bricks and other ammo. I'm not a reloader, but they had quite a bit of different powder, maybe a dozen different kinds. American Eagle 22 bricks were $40 and WWB 45 ammo was $29 a box. No wonder they have so much.

    Nope, there are plenty of 22 bricks out there. And primers. Plenty. Everyone remain calm. No need to run out and buy up what is left.

    *stands up, gets keys, goes to walmart*

    Seriously though, once everyone stops stockpiling, the supply will increas and prices will drop.

    True, there's still ammo out there. I bought a brick at Bobs in Longview a couple weeks ago for about $20, and they had quite a few left at the time. Maybe a dozen total of two different brands. Magtech 45 seems to be just about everywhere too.

    people that were caught flatfooted this time have vowed to make sure it dont happen again and now they have to stockpile (5 yrs down the road every yard sale will feature primers and ammo) when they feel they have enough the sales will drop off and everyone will lower prices.

    Picked up Federal 22 bricks at Wally World today for $15 and target packs of Win 100 .45's for $32. They had 357, 40 & 223 that I noticed. Last Sat I picked up 2 mega packs of 9mm at BiMart just befor going to Combat Focus Shooting Class. Am I just lucky? Seems to me it's been this easy to purchase for the last 2 months.
