Ammo Prices Rise Again

Apparently they are going up.  Anywhere from 5% to 10% effective June 1st.  It’s getting tough for people to keep shooting.  A lot of the retired guys at the club might be out of the game once their current stocks dry up.

    And less than a year after the last hike, if I am not mistaken. Any indications on what the problem is this time, or is it just more of an increase in raw materials cost, and too much ammunition going downrange to Iraq/Afghanistan?

    Hell, retired or not, I might start having problems paying for what is going from an expensive hobby to a very expensive hobby.

    I have already been regulated to shooting only .22lr and the little bit of wolf .223 I have. Rifle shooting will be real thin this summer.

    Same here. Even .22LR is getting pricey!

    Bah, I need to buy a .22 rifle… Getting one of those and some ammo for it will be cheaper than just getting the ammo for my M1A….

    Ammo is a great investment. A friend of mine bought thousands of rounds a few years ago & it’s doubled in value. Doing better than his 401k. :)

    Dustin: woulda, coulda, shoulda, lol. My own relatively meager stores are priceless, because my life might ride on them in the near future. Something to consider…
