exactly, since the election paranoia has taken hold. Even .22 rimfire is through the roof, if you can find it. Just like back in the beginning of the Obama years. I load my own for both shotguns and rifles and still have plenty of components on hand to do so.\n\n\nI watched a video from the CEO of Federal (and their other brands)- they can't keep up with demand. Millions o f guns have been sold in the last year, mainly the most popular calibers and when people buy a gun, they need ammo. 7 million guns plus two boxes of ammo means they need 700 million rounds and that's without people buying it in order to replenish what was used at the range or for hunting. Then, they also need to fulfill Law Enforcement and Military contracts.
