What is easy to find today with this ammo shortage?   You guessed it, the odd ball stuff.   All the common calibers are sold out but if you have handguns or rifles that shoot not so popular calibers there is ammo out there.

This kind of goes against why we get the most popular calibers.   They cost less and are easy to find ammo for.   Now with the buying blitz that is not the case.   Yes, they still cost more then common calibers but the prices for them have remained the same where many have jacked up the price for the common stuff.

If any of you have guns that shoot ammo that is not in the norm with most shooters take a look at the supply out there and if want to post in what is available for you gun I think it would make a good read.   I am not one to comment as I have 12ga and 20 ga.  .22, 22WMR, 38, 308, .45ACP and .223.   So I am a rather common gun owner.

.32 acp seems to still be around, and does not seem to have had a big price increase.

Well, my sort of oddball stuff isn't easy to find most of the time any way, so I keep a small stockpile so I don't have to look for it.  .303 for the SMLE, .38 S&W (not Special) for the Webley, and 7.65x21 for the Luger.

.303 Enfield was the most produced rifle in the world till the AK-47 and ammo was abound.  However, we are getting old so that is not the case any longer.  I know a dumbass (me) that had the Jungle Carbine and traded it for something stupid (can't even remember what for so it must have been stupid).   

My concern about this buying run is will it be like after Sandy Hook and .22 take two years to come back.   I am not concerned for my self but for the friends who will be bothering me for .22 from my stash and the look on their face when I tell them no.  Normally a very generous man but they all have had 7 years to stock up like I did and they did not so I will not be the guy bailing them out.

I've got two of the SMLE rifles.  One is an old battle-worn thing from Australia's Lithgow Arsenal.  The other is a Quest Carbine, sort of a modern interpretation of the Jungle Carbine done by Gibbs Rifle Company years back.  And I agree with you about bailing folks out.  I was rather kind and generous the last time.  That's not happening this time.  I'm quite happy to sell from the stockpile, but there is going to be a significant premium, sort of a "failure to plan" tax.
