    for those who can afford it... great... for those who can't (like me) are stuck buying what we can afford.

    100 rounds of cheap win .45ACP is around 55 bucks... cheapest I ever bought the same pack was about 35 bucks. 20 bucks more for the same stupid pack of ammo. I wish I could drop 250 bones every time I went to the range but I can't. I usually buy ammo at the range I will shoot and keep a few boxes untouched at home. The stash is for when ammo isn't available and I want to practice or way way to freekin expensive.

    We are our very own worst enemies. We have brought this upon ourselves and now the ammo companies are profiting off our unsubstatiated fears.
    It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

    the only thing I "fear" is that I'm going to have to pay a dollar per round of .45ACP soon

    reloading is still cheaper but lately you can't find primers.... or bullets

    You need to stop buying at the range, usually inflated over prices you can get elsewhere.

    We did nothing to bring this on ourselves. the ammo has been reasonable for 30+ years. Just in the last 11/2 years has it climbed more than the last 15 years. Lack of capacity, lack of new investment, lack of planning for normal growth, lack of profits and industry consolidation. The G'vmt demands has not help us. Shot shells are still reasonable, .22's are still reasonable. the lack of capacity drives and demand drives price. The Gvmt is the biggest driver.

    that's the thing... I would have to make a special trip to wally world. The time and gas it takes to get there and the frustration when I find out they don't have the caliber I need would be much more then paying the difference for a box while I'm at the gun store's range.

    this is true and it keeps the LGS/range in bizzness, and money out of ChinaMart's pockets.

    You know...if you set aside a little bit at a time, e.g. $3- $5/day, by the end of the year you will be able to buy yourself a reloader + extra money to buy some supplies..and you'll have more fun shooting but the fact that you'll save a lot of money in the long run. Just my opinion...

    glockman10mm: I was wondering what caliber you train with. I assume it is 10mm given your screen name, but you never know.

    I wonder what is special about March/April. Maybe the particular supplier you are using has a new batch of ammo coming out then.

    This is already so for a lot of the "Personal Defense" rounds. $25 or more for a box of 20 JHPs.

    There is not enough supply to meet demand and raw material prices are also going up.

    New shooters every single day and no one in the ammunition industry is doing anything to expand production capability.

    Federal/speer etc... announced erradict shipments over the next 36 months.

    No one wants to expand thinking the bottom might fall out at any time.

    Bad time to be buying ammo.
