Ammo prices dropping?
« on: February 08, 2018, 08:11:24 PM »
I just noticed the price of match ammo for Boomer's Hornady .50 BMG AMax has dropped about 10% in the last few weeks. 
Anyone notice the same for other calibers?

In Central PA, common calibers like 9mm & .45 have been dropping since the election..

I dont really pay much attention to some of the "niche" custom calibers.
But ammo on the whole is dropping and readily available.

Nobody is hoarding. And all the LGS's back orders are being filled, so its piling up.

I know Im going to re stock my hoards while the gittin is good.  :th_thicon_idea:
$10 on a dime says the hoarding & shortages  fires back up in about 2 years.
Politicians are like diapers, they should be changed often, and for the same reason.

TXAZ,

9.3x62mm,  .300 Savage & .244 Remington are definitely NOT falling.

This.

Ammo prices are back to where I remember them being many years ago, and big boxes of .22LR are abound again. 9MM is finally down to less than $10 per box of 50 for the cheap stuff as well.

I'm not going to like it going back up again here at the end of Trump's election cycle unless his administration can somehow help pass a law that would greatly hamper any future attempts to regulate the 2A.

IMHO it is not about passing laws but appointing conservative judges; especially Supreme Court justices. Presidents and politicians come and go after a few years but federal judges are appointed for life. P.S. One man's 'hoarding' is another man's 'stocking up'. Depends upon whose ox is being gored.

I was in Dunhams yesterday looking around. Just went in to kill 30 minutes.

Their CHEAPEST 223 ammo, MARKED NEW LOW LOW PRICE, :afraid4: ,  was .57 cents per round for metal case Wolf 55 gr..  :th_nuts:

The same ammo that buds has for .20 cents.   :facepalm:

Walmart had Winchester white box range 9mm 115 gr for $39 for a 200 pack.  :thumbsup1:
Thats the cheapest Ive ever seen it. ( given its NOT really good for anything else IMO )
