Welcome aboard, Daytrader. I don't think the BG's here or there (other countries) give a hoot about where their ammo's coming from. The least expensive ammo seems to me to be coming from the old Eastern Bloc countries. As for DoD buying up the Made-in-the-USA ammo, yes, there's a lot of truth in that. I've heard stories when they were really short in 2008-2009, they turned to Israeli contractors.

Since ammo is not price-controlled in favor of the user it could go as high as the manufacturers want it to go. Add an additional tax to it (could happen) & the sky's the limit. My greatest fear as that guns will be very easily accessible but ammo will be impossible to buy.

Welcome from Michigan!
BTW, I just found a 100 count of Federal Ball ammo at a nearby Walmart for 30$.
That's not bad.

Welcome! Thank you for reading the rules!
"He went on two legs, wore clothes and was a human being, but nevertheless he was in reality a wolf of the Steppes. He had learned a good deal . . . and was a fairly clever fellow. What he had not learned, however, was this: to find contentment in himself and his own life. The cause of this apparently was that at the bottom of his heart he knew all the time (or thought he knew) that he was in reality not a man, but a wolf of the Steppes."

I bought some ammo recently, and in the process started comparing it to what I paid for the same calibers , types, etc. last year... and it was definitely less than last year. I've been catching some of the 'sales' when they come along... and that's what these were, but they were "sales" deals a year ago as well.
