Did you check with midwayusa.com?Now the hoarding is affecting the oddities. Just checked Ammoseek for 38 S&W (NOT Specials) and there are no listings.
My question is, what to these buyers thing they're going to shoot it out of? I don't think there's that many Terriers and BSR's floating around.
All my ammo purchases are online in bulk quantities. That's a huge difference between 'old school' and today's environment. Consumers can purchase large quantities of ammo with a mere click of a button which allows a panic to deplete supply very quickly. It's not that the pipeline is significantly different but rather the purchasing ability of the consumer is greatly expanded, and in a panic environment greatly accelerated. This isn't limited to ammo. Some sellers have even banned online purchasing of some items during the COVID panic. For example, go to Walmart.com and search for disinfecting wipes. 99% of what they have listed shows sold out, but what they do have is for 'in store purchase only'.Every person that walks out of a store empty handed is a lost sale. There is something wrong with the business model when shelves are empty after a few days of 'panic' buying, there should be more than that in the pipeline for the express purpose of preventing these 'shortages.' How many times have we seen this?
I guess I'm old OLD school but I can remember a time when there were more shooters than today and you could always get ammo. Something changed and I suspect it has to do with 'just in time' malarky that is taught in business school.
