the illogical approach to ammo
the illogical approach to the ammo situation.
i remember during the panic of 08 the ammo flying off the shelves.
the first thing wally-world ran out of was all the popular rounds like 7.62x39, 223, 9mm, 308, 30-06, 30-30, 45acp, 40sw, 38spc, 270, 243 and such ran out in a few weeks. with the top picks going out of stock in a couple days.
but they had a pick-up load of 22-250 that just sat there through the whole panic-- in fact i think they still got some of it today!--LOL!
i have noticed a trend where people try to consolidate around one or two specific rounds generally 9mm and either 5.56 or 7.62x39
admittedly these "hot" sellers will be the first ones back AFTER the panic.
a few 'oddball" irons might come in handy as if your late and the panic has hit those oddball sized rounds may be all that is left to get--
