AMORY, Miss. (WTVA) -- An ongoing bullet shortage has pushed businesses to enact a one-box per customer limit.
Tombigbee Pawn in Amory is one such place.
A co-owner said business is booming for ammo sales, adding that some types can still be hard to find.
"If I could get more stuff, I could sell more stuff," Co-Owner Kenny Oswalt Of Tombigbee Pawn said. He explained ammo sells just as fast as he gets it.
"It's just really hard to get your hands on stuff right now," Oswalt said.
"[We want to give] a little bit to everybody, and not a whole bunch to one person."
He said the reasons for the shortage could be the fact that this is an election year, and also that factories shutting down for the coronavirus isn't helping.
He added that one type of bullet that is a hot seller currently is the .228. They are used in AR-style weapons.
This after Biden announced a push for gun restrictions, reportedly on "assault-style weapons and high-capacity magazines," according to NBC News.
Oswalt added pistol ammo is always a hot item, and credited the high sales to multiple factors. He said sale prices are also up on ammo.
"Even before election, you know, just because of COVID, it went up. Definitely an increase."
He added it could be a couple of years before ammo stocks fully replenish.
