For 1.25 a round they better come with a weapon to shoot them. And I don't even care if it's a Glock or not.

Hey, but if you pick it up locally you can get some great discounts and save on shipping! I bet you could get the per round price down to $1.05!!!

Several years ago, I finally ran out of the last case of 2000rds of 9mm FMJ that I'd purchased from a local reloader. It cost ~$0.06/rd. Almost makes me cry, recalling the price. Good stuff, too.

$1.25/rd is awful. I grit my teeth at $18/50rds, actually.

Hopefully the gun-grabbers' intensity will flag, sometime soon. That's about the only thing I see that'll have any chance of shoring up inventories.

Either that was many years back or he was being very generous. The only way I can think of to get down to 6 cents a round would be to cast my own lead bullets and I darn sure wouldn't want to sell them after that amount of work!

It was mid-to-late 1990's, and I knew it was a great price then. Bought an obscene number of 2000rd cases from him. Ran out of the last of the batch in 2006, IIRC. Yes, it was awhile back. Don't know how he got his costs low enough to offer that price, particularly over so many cases as he sold to me. But I wasn't complaining. It was once-used brass that he'd cleaned up, satisfactory FMJ bullets, good powder, and done on his Dillon 600-series auto presses.

I've heard of better prices on that fancy armor piercing-heat seeking-poison tipped-zombie-vampire-werewolf-untraceable-unobtanium ammo.

That's crazy and I'll mark them as a business I'll never do business with, even when the price crashes.

Last successful Wallyworld purchase of 9mm whitebox was $21 per 100 a couple weeks ago. I picked up 4 boxes of AE today for $14 per 50 and gritted my teeth at that. But I'm running out of practice ammo and don't want to break into the sealed stuff.

There are a lot of totally ridiculous ammo prices around these days. My LGD doesn't have great inventory but has kept a lid on pricing. Any company I see gouging will get ZERO of my business, even when prices come down.

I had run out of 9mm ammo.I went to shoot one day with another member of DC,who i had only met thru email.He sold me 200 rds of 9mm for 50.00,and that was nice of him.I saw a box of TUL ammo today at a store.I didn't even ck the price.Maybe,at some point the prices will go back down a little.There is a gun show,this weekend,in the town beside me,but,the ammo there will be as high or higher i'm guessing.

I don't want to pee on your bonfire, but you might want to check your math ; )

Being an old timer and having seen this coming, my $400 worth of ammo would cost me close to $2000 to replace at today's prices if I used only the price of ammo in stock and not the stuff priced cheaper but not available or not backorderable. I had to buy a third large ammo case to hold it all. Hate to shoot it though.

Things are ridiculous right now, I hope they get better soon. A LGS was selling 100 round WWB ammo for $80/box. That's outrageous and more than twice the price at Wally world or Bass Pro. A few months ago I found 1,000 rounds for $200.00 and I'm still kicking myself for not making the purchase.
