Been watching the box box stores, Cabelas, Bass Pro, Scheels, ect. Picked up a few boxes of 9mm Sig elite vcrown 124gr for a decent price...just because. From what I have seen, the big box stores arent raping the prices (yes, capitalism). But internet sellers are a different story...

Problem is, stock goes fast. Check a couple times a day as there are some reasonable deals still to be had.

Yeah, I lost my last handle :(
I have noticed the same thing too. Academy sports still has the same prices as pre Covid. But they only get in like a case twice a week. Limit of 2. Gotta be lucky and quick.

That said, some dude is trying to sell 5000 small pistol primers for $600 near me. Little 350% mark up. Anyone actually paying that? Sheesh.

Went to a LAX ammo Saturday. They had everything in store.

the 7.62x39 was the only thing that was reasonably priced.

50 bmg for PMC ball was $36/10


pretty much every caliber in stock. Prices shocked me.

yes shocked
Go to the PX, you'll be shocked what people are willing to pay for low grade 55 & 62 gr Ball ammo.
I can understand a guy wanting to make a few extra bucks on some cheap range ammo but damn.

Well today,I received an email from target sports.
I about shit when the website opened up and bulk Federal 5.56 is now $699.99 a thousand.
I told people and told them that it wasn't EVER going to get cheaper than 2017-18 prices
