Spot on CJ. The shortage if from hoarding and panic buying. I've heard people in here mention they had a 100K rounds. If it comes to a shooting war, the war will be over or you will be dead long before you can make a dent in that much ammo. If you like range time fine, but don't go shooting 1000 rds every week because you can. Stay tuned up but don't waste it either. Bartering is a possibility? Sure, someone comes to your door offering to trade beans for bullets? Likely they want the bullets to kill you and take both.
Like CJ said, SLOW YOUR HORSES, let the supply catch up. Once the first few boxes stay on the shelf more than a few hours the rush will be over and no one will be buying another box until the next panic attack. Bloomstick in NY is telling the NEA not to sell their gun and ammo stock. He probably is laughing his hiney off at us while making a killing on his own ammo portfolio.
