    Ammo prices heading up?

    I read this on another board:

    "Federal 550 bulk packs .22 cal went to $20 a box today at our walmart..."

    Has anyone else seen a spike in ammo prices the last day or two?

    Funny you should ask. I just got this email from the site where I purchase my ammo:

    I'm stocking up just in case. With the increase in fuel prices combined with the political issues I can see a shortening supply very quickly.

    I was in my LGS today to have my bow worked on. He is not the cheapest on ammo but I usually buy from him anyway.
    His PMC Bronze 9mm fmj 115gr (practice ammo) is usually 12.50 for a 50rd box. Up to 14.95 today.
    Was the first I had noticed any price hikes.

    I sure hope not, one of my LGS has its ammo priced about $10 more than the same ammo is at wal mart!

    the cost of everything will go up because of economic reasons to complicated (and political) to go into here and because the price of energy used to manufacture and deliver goods is going straight up. ammo hasn't been too bad lately but that will soon change

    Got an email today from Buds basically saying the same thing today, stocks are dwindling and manufacturers can't produce enough.

    Deju vu. I heard the same rumor almost a year ago. The ammo prices didn't jump. Maybe the prices will move, maybe they won't. I wouldn't worry about it. Not much we can do about it. I try to worry about things I can control.

    I haven't noticed an increase in prices, but I have noticed a decrease in availability around here. Harder to find a lot of the premium self defense loads.

    That's what I'm seeing too, but I just chocked it up to CCW becoming legal.
