Ammo availability

I got an email this morning from a good friend in eastern PA. He was in a large gun shop last week and the owner told him that his rep from Federal was in and called the staff together to tell them that they'd better get their orders for ammo in as soon as they could. He said that if they didn't, they wouldn't be getting any. He told them that there would be considerable difficulties getting any ammo in April, and if they did find any the price would be 30-40% higher than it is now.

Does this apply to ammo across the board or just a few calibers, and did the Federal rep. give any explaination?

Don't know, and don't know. I'll email my friend and ask.

Thanks, would be good to know even though I have a pretty good stock of ammo.

It is house cleaning day here at the Woodside residence, once done I will check out the race, Datona is one of my favorite tracks.

I did,a very fine ship...I apoligize, the other night it was past my bed time and did not say "over and out".

Like NASCAR? it would be nice if they could get the track fixed......oh well, it's "half time" I will just fiddle with the scope on my AK.

My skin is as thick as the armor on a tank and as slick as bat shit.
No way can you offend me unless you call me late to dinner.

I think that you are on to something, I am going to coat my ammo with "bat shit", talk about armored piercing....lol

I am just saying sorry for leaving everyone hanging, that is all.
