It's there. You just need to look outside the 'hood.

250rds Rem UMC -- $89
250rds Rem UMC -- $80
250rds Rem UMC -- $73
300rds Rem UMC / Blazer Brass -- $90
150rds Blazer Brass -- $79 free shpg
plus about 50 cases of 1000rds, averaging ~$325 or so, some with free shpg and some charging shpg.
At $100, that's $20 per box of 50. Beats $60. Absolutely beats not having any.
Shpg has been, lately: ~$15/250, ~$25/500, ~$35/1000.
That's how it works.
First we have a shortage now we have extremely high prices to go along with it.
Yes, hobby; no, defense.
Is anyone else concerned that we might be priced out of our right to own guns and defend ouselves or to enjoy our hobby?
In the short run, I think this is a temporary spike. In the long run, it'll keep going up from historical averages. No doubt about it.

I reload for all my guns except the P3AT. Before I will pay such inflated prices I will retire the gun.

We saw the same thing during the Clinton surge after the AWB. It will settle down.

My Walmart was out again, but supposedly they're getting a shipment in tonight.
But I did stop by Dick's on the way home and they had over a dozen AE 115 gr 9mm (50ct) for $14.95/box and about 2 dozen boxes of Winchester .45 and several boxes of .40.
