If thats the case I wont buy any ammo even if its readily available. Someone has to stop paying top dollar, driving the price up. I believe in free enterprise and they should be able to charge what they want but at the same time I'm not forced to buy it either.

I hate to say it, but I think ammo prices might be here to stay. I hope I'm wrong. Ammunition is almost completely composed of metals, which are worth far more than steel in scrap weight. This, along with the current insane demand, is enough alone to keep prices high. All we can hope for is one, if not both of these factors, to drop significantly. Again, I hope I'm wrong.

Ammo will go down when gas goes down, when electricity goes down, when milk and bread goes down, and when we get an honest politician in the White House.

Like it or not, these are the good ole days.

There is NO ammo around here. Almost nothing.

What's going is called a "bubble", and like all bubbles it will end. Eventually people will figure they have enough now and will quit stocking up. When that happens there will be more ammo than ever and prices will fall.

Another contributing factor to this shortage is that people can get away with selling it at 60 bucks for a value pack of 22LR. If we want anything to change we need to stop accepting these prices. If you knew you could get away with making $70.00 PROFIT on a bulk pack of ammo that cost 20 bucks and get away Scott free why wouldn't you? People need to stop the stupid panic buying.....

100% agree. I'm in new England, which is pretty non gun friendly to begin with. No.ammo anywhere. My only option was to buy .223 from this "prepper" at work. He charged me $80 per 100 rounds. The local gun store here had federal .223 for $88 per 100 rounds. Thousands of rounds sold out in a matter of hours. I almost cried shooting some .223 and .357 magnum at the range when I realized that trip cost me $200 in ammo and I was only there for 45 minutes.
