    Here in NY ammunition is getting very hard to find. Does anyone have a good online site for ammo? Thanks

    Best thing I can tell you is to use a search engine and put in what type of ammo you're looking for. That way you can find some of the lesser known distributors and have a better chance of finding it. I live here in Texas and unless you happen to know the small time dealers directly your chances of finding any are slim to none. Or you're gonna have to wait a long time.[​IMG]

    You may want to think about reloading your own ammo,thats what I do and it's a great hobby as well..I've never bought loaded ammo on line and I think the shipping is pretty expensive. Good Luck !

    If you want I will PM you a name of a place that I buy online even though they are not supposed to sell to customers in Mass. Most won't ship here because if the laws, Cabelas included. Prices are fairly cheap even with shipping.

    Ammo is getting hard to find or expensive everywhere that I have heard of.

    We either go to Bass Pro shop or Walmart, sometimes Cabelas.

    Your just not going to find much ammo out there. People are buying every box they can find. I would love to have 5 times what I normally keep on hand but I only have about half my normal supply so we have stopped shooting. Go hang out at a gun store a while. People will tell you that they are expecting a fight an are gearing up. I have never seen a ammo shortage like this in my life. Even LEOs are talking about not being able to get any...

    here is one website that I get both reloading supplies and loaded ammunition: www.midwayusa.com. I mostly reload my own ammo... it started out that I wanted to "save money" by reloading at half the cost, but it ends up that I go to the range and shoot twice as much and spend the same amount of money on 2 boxes of reloads that my buddies spend on 1 box of the factory stuff. There are some bullets that I can't reload, especially some of the premium hunting bullets, so I buy a box of the premium ammo that I am going to hunt with, and load a box (100 rounds) of the same weight bullet so I can sight in at the beginning of the hunting season. I've been reloading for about 15 years now, and I've saved $$$ by reloading instead of buying the factory stuff. If you shoot a lot, you may want to do some research about reloading.

    ammo is getting hard to find everywhere. Midwayusa is a good place to start. Reloading might be the the way to go.
