I've been seeing $1 per round for .223 and that is bananas. Also watching the pricing of my rifle (PWS MK114 5.56) going for $1,000 over retail!!

Crazy man, crazy.

$1-rnd, and that's probably cheap steel-cased Russian carp at this point.

No need for anyone to tell us Wolf ammo works great in their AR...

That's crazy. My ? Is if a rifle is 700.00 quality and you pay 2100.00 for it . It's still 700.00 quality. If its a piece of **** and unreliable why pay for somthing that possibly won't function in the future.

What will be funny is if the ban doesn't pass all the people still trying to sell there del-ton for 2,000$ cuz they can't face the fact that they just lost 1,000.

A good question is, why didn't everyone stock up when supplies were affordable?

Did you really expect that supplies and prices would remain the same forever?
guns/ammo/mags are the new gold . proceed accordingly.

Needless to say I went to midways sight and bought a reloading press and I found rcbs dies on amazon.
Hey. You be quiet. I have 1500 rounds of 223 for sale for $1200. It's capitalism at it's best. It's supply and demand.
