What do you all expect? Welcome to the wonderful world of Capitalism. Price is set by the various economic forces at work. If you really want to buy ammo, cough up the $$$ or, go out and compete for it.
Reasonably priced ammo does still exists (around me at least) if you are willing to go find it and spend the time waiting in line to get it.
If you really can't find ammo, go start a manufacturing business and get some ammo produced ASAP. You will make $$$. The system is designed to regulate itself.
I have taken to reloading and don't think I will ever look back. My groups have improved, and my wallet is not as light.

I was at a gun show today, specifically went for .380 ammo. Oh, they had it alright. Remington UMC FMJ 95g in 50rd boxes ...
The line to buy ammo was 25 deep and they were buying by the hand cart full. No way I would pay $1.00 p/rd for practice ammo. I bought a set of Hogue grips in Tulipwood for my P232 instead.

I try and buy a box of ammo every paycheck. Just a box, but considering the last 8 paychecks in a row there hasnt been any ammo to buy....I finally found some ammo for my .45. Corbon +p, 20 rounds 45 dollars. I was not happy, considering I normally get 20 rounds for 24 dollars, but I havent gotten ammo in months. So I bit the bullet so to speak. If I ever have to use this ammo I pray for what ever it is on the other side, because you better hope the lords got your soul because your butt is mine.
I know not what this "overkill" means.
