The thing that has kept my attention on the subject of imported ammo is what might happen regarding the small arms treaty and the Big O's apparent ability to unilaterally stop the importing of firearms and ammo. Regardless of whether or not the treaty will actually make a material difference to our rights or our ability to procure foreign-made ammo, it seems to me that O could shut off that spigot at any time, unless I'm missing something. To that end, I've bought out two recent shipments of 7.62x39 at a LGS (they don't impose any purchasing limits, and I get notified when they take delivery of this caliber). I figure I'm set, but I won't be doing a lot of plinking with this caliber unless/until there's some positive clarity on the prospect of future availability.

I would like to think there is some ammunition manufacturer out there who would see this as an opportunity.

If cheaper foreign made disappeared tomorrow there would be a very large market for a domestic brass cased producer to come out with something. Based on the whole animal thing maybe they call it Golden Eagle or something similar.

I often wondered if a small shop would survive on just 1-2 calibers; of course the problem right now is components

It's certainly possible that Obama, or any future president could ban imported ammo or firearms from any, or all countries. It's already been done with China.

However, I'd be willing to venture that if no 7.62x39, 5.45x39, 7.62x54R, etc you would start seeing domestic production skyrocket to fill demand. It might not ever get to be as low of a price as the imported stuff, but I'd bet it would be much cheaper then the domestic stuff is made now.

It's possible to make/buy brass cased 7.62x39 ammo fairly cheap. I used to buy brass cased Fiocchi 7.62x39 before I found a range that I could use steel cased ammo in. It was only about 5-8 cents more per round than wolf at the time.

I'm not going to say I'm not concerned about the ammo supply long run. If it happened I think things would get rough for around 8-12 months at least but I'm sure some ammo company would love to fill the void and make a pile of money feeding all of those AK, SKS and Mini 14 rifles that are in the country.

There isn't much domestic production of the soviet calibers right now. What little there is are mainly used by people for hunting from Mini 14s. I don't think I've ever seen anyone load up an AK mag with Winchester or Federal 7.62x39 ammo.

Yesterday Obama gave the Attorney General authority to regulate the importation of "Defense Articles". This is your import ban should Holder decide to prohibit importation of an item characterized as a "Defense Article".

For a list of what constitutes "Defense Articles" go here:
