    Prices are still insane.

    I saw 50 round boxes of 147 grain Hydrashock for $60.

    Not in the least. Does anyone actually expect prices to go down? I figure all this short supply/high demand makes for an inevitable price climb. That's the other plus side of stocking up.

    People round here in Atlanta are selling 9 mm for 12 a box, .40 for 15-18, .45 for 18-22, .223 for 7 per 20rd box, 5.56 about the same. 762x39 for about 7.69 what I seen today. Prices seem okay still not what they used to be but okay.

    2 weeks ago, I paid $42.00 for a box of Winchester 115gr 9mm target/match ammo, 100-rd box. Today, I paid $18.97 for it. I'd say it's coming down, or else I got hosed at the store earlier?

    I went to a big gun show a few weeks ago (1000 tables +) with wagon in tow. I'm one of the first people in the door on opening day. I left there with a few boxes. The guy there said " I just can't get my hands on anything". All the sites I've searched are either back ordered or out of stock. any help in bulk

    Looks like this ammo thing is slowing down bass pro has had the 9mm umc 250 round value packs in stock the past week or two, also quite a few other sites online have had 380 wolf ammo for 350 for 1k rounds, 380 auto gold dot 50 rounds for 40 bucks, 9mm fiochii for 13 for 50 rounds, 9mm hst 124+P and 147 for 30 bucks per 50. Bunch of 40 and 45 acp HST and Gold dot out there for cheap as well. Lots of 223 ammo I have seen as well. and 38 special hollow points and FMJ's all of that one one site

    If you want to know where to find the HST and cheap ammo online email me dont want to put it out there and have it all gone and people hoarding it

    Lower, lately? I don't see it, yet. I do see a little better stocking on the shelves, but not much change in prices.

    DoubleTap JHP 9mm (mail order) is still $350/500, which is twice what it was in early 2007.

    Local 9mm boxes of 50 still exceed $30/box, generally, if they're in stock at all. That's a bit less than quadruple what it was in ~1998, about double that of 2yrs ago.

    GunBroker.com occasionally has 500rd or 1000rd lots of 9mm for closer to $20/50, but not often. That's still almost twice what it was 18mos ago.

    Not really. Availability has become hit or miss some places for X or Y ammo, but nothing consistent IMO.

    It doesn't matter if the price is going down, because there is no supply if Wally's is any indication of supply.

    WalMart's inventory is probably as good a barometer as any other single indicator, I suppose. WM stores are everywhere, they generally all sell basic ammo, and they generally all have a number of boxes in stock at decent prices, if supply is good.

    I bought ammo at bass pro shop on Friday and the prices were reasonable, and they had a lot of most calibers, but mostly winchester or remington.
