Hi guys - My regular (Halifax) ammo dealer - Ron's Army-Navy- told me that they ran out of Barnaul last fall and it seems to be due to unrest in Ukraine. They cannot at present get shipments thru that area. He hopes that it will resolve in the next few months, but you can never tell with 'Poutine'
Ron's still has lots of Czech & Chinese surplus FMJ for about $ 6 / 20 and S&B SP for $25 /20.
I live in New Brunswick now and the Cabellas just closed a couple weeks ago since we have a Bass Pro as well. Cabellas had one box of Barnaul - $25 and 2 of Hornady SST - $65 + tx when they closed. A local store - Dr. Deals - has Czech FMJ for $4.50 / 20 and Norinco FMJ for $7 / 20. Bass Pro only carries Federal ( I think) at about $40 / 20.
I haven't been to other towns but pickins are slim out this way - not a lot of ammo dealers around.
BTW I have a 51 Tula refurb with forced stock + mag cover - otherwise matched and 'good' cond
