Anyone see if ammo prices are higher now?

Anyone see if ammo prices are higher now?

This is a discussion on Anyone see if ammo prices are higher now? within the Defensive Ammunition & Ballistics forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; I haven't seen increased ammo prices yet. Maybe once the stores get new stock, it will be higher. Anyone see any increase yet?...

    It actually looks like it has dropped in some instances. I remember the .380 shortage a while back when people were charging an arm and a leg for the stuff.

    At the local gun show a few weeks ago, bulk ammo was cheaper then it had been since the last Presidential election.

    I had went to cabela's the other day and I checked on the clearance shef in the gun department, and they had Federal .45 boxes for $21. Which is a couple dollars less than they usually have it for. But on the other hand I was at a local gun store who usually has cheaper guns but expensive ammo and the same Federal was just under $20.

    Natchez has some low prices on Remington including Golden Saber just got the e-mail flyer a few minutes ago.

    You are probably correct in your analysis....most retail merchants don't wish to apply "sticker shock" to their merchandise unless warranted, and with the price of primary transportation fuel soaring through the roof, they realize that the typical customer has less disposable income, thus having to make difficult choices in their purchases. By offering "discount ammo", immediate cash flow increases can usually be expected, especially if one realizes that future wholesale replacement inventories are going to cost a lot more......passed on to the consumer. Buy now, and buy in bulk if you can....it ain't gonna get any better any time soon.
