I can remember a time when ammunition was cheap and plentiful. All I had to do was wander down to my local gun store and I could walk out with whatever I wanted (which was usually another full 440 round tin of 7.62x54r ammo). And then the dark times came, when people started enlisting the help of their family members to get around a “box per customer” limit on ammunition and it was probably cheaper to fly to Russia and liberate the ammunition myself than buy or order it . . .
Some blame increased firearms ownership for the increased demand, but the majority believe the prospects of a Chicago democrat in power prompted ammunition hoarding and caused the unpleasantness. Recently things seem to have settled down — ammunition prices are more reasonable, supply is almost matching demand, and the box per customer limit has been disappearing.
And then this happened, a sign appeared in a local Wal-Mart and was discovered by a Reddit reader re-instating the box per customer limit. With the election season fast approaching, are we about to see a renewed interest in ammunition hoarding? Will prices skyrocket once more? Will I ever see another factory box of .300 BLK? What do you think?
