Online Dunham's has 325 rounds for $22.99. They have 550 rounds of Thunderbolts for $32.99. I didn't try to order any, so maybe ther're out of stock......or not.

Walmart wouldn't even bring up ammo of any type online.

It wasn't all that long ago someone on here listed a link to a mail order place (Cheaper than Dirt?/ Midway?) that was selling a brick for like $15.00. I ordered a few for squirrel season and plinking. Shoulda stocked up and bought a half dozen, or 10-12 bricks!

It would be nice if the ammunition manufacturers would sell to the physical stores first, and then distribute to the online giants after the stores were stocked. It would also be nice if the stores would limit to two boxes per day period. No going in and out of the store 10 times with your limit. It would probably take care of the problem pretty quickly. Iíll bet the stores are hurting by not having ammo in stock, i know if i went in to get a couple boxes theres usually something else i need or would pick up just because i was there.

Drastic times call for drastic measures.

Still think the way out of this is for an outfit like CCI (or any other maker) to convert their lines to only one or two of their most popular rounds......say .22 high velocity or standard velocity........and then retain all stock for in house sales. Sell 500 round bricks....limit one per order...at full retail price, plus shipping. That will simplify distribution (only one product item to keep track of) and allocate the supply to those that "need" it. Do the same for most of the gauges and calibers they make ammo for. Just the single most popular item they make. As it stands now, CCI is showing as many as 15 to 20 different rounds in just .22 lr alone. Good idea in normal times, but not now.

Then invest the windfall profits from selling at full retail into doubling their production capacity. Basically, getting a new factory for free.

Cheaper than dirt pulled that same stunt during the last ammo shortage and with p mags and AR parts then as well. Thats when I quit buying from them. I will not support scumbags like that with my money. Not then, not now and not any time in the future.


I do all my own stunts ..... but never intentionally

bought Remington thunderbolts for 15.00 a brick this spring from natchez shooters supply also rem. golden bullets for a tad more some pistol bullets as well think it was 100 bucks and free shippping They haven't had any ammo on hand for some time now earlier this fall i called and was told to disregard their catalogs cause they're printed ahead of time
Now the same ammo is bidded up to 80 or more on gunbroker per brick
Good Point on the equity Lawdog maybe we should put our ammo up as collateral on property or a new truck
