    With panic buying - buying more than needed in anticipation of a shortage..create a shortage.

    Remember the paper toilet customers induced shortage when none was ??

    This kind of situation also created ammo and components shortage in the past.
    Factory Closures and Supply Chain disruptions are real.

    Sitting on crates of ammo and piles of TP is remarkably comfortable and psychologically soothing.

    True to a point but remembering the last ammo shortage 5 years ago 22 lr ammo was not cheap at 10 cents a round or more and hard to find so it makes sense to buy it cheap and stack it deep where and when possible. A year or two ago I could get decent Federal 22 at 4 cents a round before tax. Now it is generally 8 cents or more. CCI is also more expensive.

    There is no creating a shortage, we are past that. The shelves are empty, we are selling turkey guns for home defense. Rather then have everyone speculating it's better to to try and keep everyone informed.

    I bought a bit of ammunition back in early May (I'm in New Hampshire.) At that time, 55 gr. 5.56mm was going for about $0.32 per round. Now it seems to average $0.55 (71% increase)

    230 gr. .45 ball has gone from $0.26 to $0.42 (62% increase)

    Meanwhile, I bought a bunch of Win Super-X 100 gr .243, and the prices are slightly lower now.

    In my opinion, this post would have more credibility with sources and also if it wasn't posted by someone who directly benefits from the panic buying caused by the spread of fear and product scarcity. That's some nasty marketing.
