I also happen to live in NH, we were about 7 or 8 months behind the rest of the country when it came to the ammo shortage.At the end of 2020???? Really?
I don't really shoot much 7.62X39, but I would have bought a few cases at that price had I seen it.
when other places across the country were out of whatever, we still had it locally. I also believe we benefited from a very savvy LGS owner, although I buy my x39 elsewhere. He owns a larger store that is not a big box. He likes to buy in larger quantities (million dollar orders, one order was 2.3 million from one distributor).....According to him the store burned through his entire 2021 supply before the end of 2020. He also resisted the quick price increases.
X39 didn’t really spike till after the new year, even so it’s still holding at .50 per round.
