    It seems like every place I look at online there out of wolf 7.62x39 ammo. Does anyone know why? Is there some kind of shortage? My sks and I are are eager to go shooting.

    there are various theories on this. if you have an Academy near you, go get some Monarch, it's just re-labled Barnaul ammo(Russian stuff comparable to wolf) and it goes for about $3 per box of 20.

    Most ammo wholesalers I've talked to said supply should be back up by spring, a few people on ARFCom caled Wolf direct and they pretty much said the same. Supposedly wolfs production numbers for commercial export were down cause they were filling other orders. :dunno: I got a shitload stockpiled but still order more every couple months, keep your eye on Cheaper Than Dirt and Sportsman Guide both get it in and sell it out quickly took over 2 months to get my order from SG, CTD has had in stock a few times when I checked but sells out with in a day or 2.

    You used to be able to get cases for like $85 at gun shows. Now if you can even find any it's like $130.

    I've heard (and take this with the bucket of salt you have to with any gun talk) that a lot is being bought in connection with the conflict overseas. Who knows if its true.

    Well that's probably B.S. cause Wolf (Tula machine plant) is the only Russian ammunition manufacturer that doesn't make ammo for their military (not up to spec). I can't imagine they have many other 'contracts' larger than the US market, but either way, most 7.62x39 'shortages' are fabricated marketing schemes I.M.H.O.

    I went to my local place to buy some on Saturday... and all they had was winchester white boxes of 20 for $10. So I'll just wait for them to get more wolf in... it's 20 for $3. This sucks.
