Sure, they will probably never get back to pre Covid prices, never mind pre Obama prices but,.. I just bought 500 rounds of 9mm for $180.00.

.36 per round is a lot less then it was 6 months ago.

In April I bought 9mm rounds from Freedom Munitions for .88 per round.

Today, 9mm from the same place, they are .36 per round.

Primary Arms is spamming the sh** out of my inbox, as well as my preferred bulk ammo supplier that dont charge taxes

Im still not buying for awhile, I want it to crash hard. Stocked up very comfortably under Trump..... 😁

i should have sold a couple AKs tho.....might still be exorbitantly high, keep forgetting

The only thing still scarce are primers. I don't do my own reloading but a buddy does,...can't get anything.

I cant find any reloading components that are readily available. Primers are the hardest to find. Literally non-existent. Powder and bullets are nearly just as hard to find, and prices are through the roof.

My competitive shootings days are over I think. Now I'm shopping for a new boat. That should keep me just as broke as shooting did.

I wish I had sold more of mine when the prices were ridiculous.....

Dont get me wrong I like having a stockpile of ammo but if you are going to pay 5 times what its worth, I am selling it.
You and me both

These are cyclic panic cycles. They said this would NEVER get better in1994, 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, 2016....etc

Prices go up, they come down. Just bide your time

Government has been issuing big contracts for ammunition not counting the military for at least twenty five years. They have successfully put many small to medium reloading companies out of business as main component suppliers kept increasing minimum purchase quantities higher and higher. This is nothing new - without ammunition all you have is a high priced rock or club!!!

Depends on caliber and demand. 9mm and .45 not too bad. .223 and .380 were both through the roof. Just had to suck it up on some RAS .223 because my tank was on E. Local shelves still empty at big box stores, and independent dealers still gouging at 75 cents/rd on just about everything. We won't see a real drop until product starts to stagnate on the shelves.

wally word in Abbeville, La has been getting some ammo, I bought 30/30 for less then $18 a box and 22 wmr for$11 a box. picked up a couple bricks of Federal 22lr for $18 a box.
Not great, but not a rip-off.
Have friends in Florida buying all the ammo they want at a Rural King, decent prices.

My son picked up a bunch of 9mm for $25. Its getting a little better, no doubt about it. Shelves aren't bare and the $$$ number is coming back to earth, slowly.

Stopped at the local Scheels today and they had a ton of 9mm FMJ @ $399 per 1,000. Getting much better but still holding out for the .2X per range.

You just have to stay strong. :) It is tempting, but you have to hang in there. Take care. Tom Worthington

I've switched to shooting .22lr thru my Ruger 22/45 about 80% of the time just to ensure my 9mm stock stays at an acceptable level but at times feel like a crack head scratching away at my arms when I see it sitting on the shelf, lol
