    44 magnum at 62 US cents a box? It looks like gun prices more than make up for it though. Wow.
    When in doubt empty the magazine.

    So let's see...

    I guess it's better than not being able to get them at all...

    Wow! So, OP, what is jacking the prices up? Government controls? Taxes? Lawsuit concerns in Norway?

    I think it's the minimum wage of $18 an hour.

    Gun and ammo prices are extremely high.

    Perhaps you've already shared, but why are you in Norway, and if the minimum wage is $18, how much to rent an average 'cave'?
    Curious.

    I suppose all it takes to get ammo to be sky-high is for enough people to not care about their gun rights. I would imagine that the impetus for those prices comes from the fact that most people are disinterested in affordable ammo/guns.

    Thankfully, the American consumer is one of the biggest customers for the biggest firearm/ammo companies!
