I'm an active shooter and by that I mean I shoot every week. I compete in IDPA and three gun matches so you can only imagine the amount of ammunition I go thru in a year. I average around 5,000 rounds of .45acp a year.
I'm old enough and smart enough to remember the last Government
attempt at screwing the American people out of their God given right to keep and bear arms, that said I'm always well stocked. I reload, so the mad rush and crush for ammo wasn't a concern. I stockpile powders and primers as most of my fellow shooters do.
Ammunition prices are falling as well as gun prices so there's good news there.
To the fellow who asked about the AR platform, there are so many makes as there are models, everything from varmit, hunting, competition, SHTF guns, plinking, LE and military platforms. I like to call the AR the lego for adults, The only thing I will say if you are interested in the platform make sure to get one chambered in .556.
I own several, my personal favorite and go to is my Ruger SR-556 followed by my Sig Sauer SIG516 Carbon. Checkout Ranier Arms, Rockriver, and Surplus Arms and Ammo. I would do a fair amount of research before buying anything. Good luck and keep shooting!
