No, I didn't. Looks like they have some stock, and the price isn't too bad. I did manage to get the last three boxes in town for $22 a box, which wasn't too awful. But nobody knows when to expect more. Oddly enough, I really wasn't a gun nut until this latest round of nonsense. Now I'm in it for life, getting full into reloading, stocking up on weapons and ammo. They done pissed me off...
The place I used to work did guns shows for a couple of large distributors. We thought the numbers (sales) went way up when Obama got elected. This year they have went into the billions, which is just unheard of. A few million was high.
This year people want to stock up for some reason.
What I've heard from a few sources is that Homeland Security has preordered enough ammo to keep all the factories busy for 5 years, and manufacturers are scrambling for capacity to serve their regular customers. I can't blame them for grabbing the business, but it seems a bit shortsighted...
