If you are a gun owner, hunter, or enthusiast, you know getting ammunition has been hard, and expensive if you find any.
Last year, gun retailers reported a 95 percent increase in firearm sales and a 139 percent increase in ammo sales compared to the same period in 2019. As the nation faced a year long pandemic, it was one of the things people could get outdoors and do.
As a result, the demand for ammunition has increased dramatically, making many calibers very difficult to find. Earlier this year, an ammunition auction was held at the Madison County Fairgrounds, with attendees reporting high prices being paid for the scarce ammo.
