Dear God. $240 for 500rds of bulk 22lr? I bought three of those very boxes last week for $18ea. I guess it's only a 1300% markup . I thought maybe that was a "case" price, but looking at their other 22lr, it actually appears to be the norm.

Their prices are almost as nutty for 223 and 9mm. I guess maybe there is someone out there with less of a conscience than CTD. Kinda sad, really. Things will come around. And hopefully some of the knuckleheads will see their customer bases dry up.

Because I had none, I just paid $24.99, per box of 20, of Federal Fusion .308 from Cabelas; I bought 2 boxes.

I just popped over to Gunbroker.com to look at ammo listings.

There are stupid S.O.B.s bidding up ammo to more than twice a reasonable price over there!

No wonder, there isn't any ammo on the shelves, some people are makin' a mint on those auctions!

You're right.

OTOH, if they can find a jackass stupid enough to pay those prices, why not???

Just got 100 rounds of 45 Acp for 55 bucks?? I just got some Winchester 230 grain fmj and Winchester ranger T series 230 grain hollow point. both 50 count boxes but had prices of 37 for fmj and 47 for rangers and guy tells me 55 bucks. I said you sure and he said yeah you been in quite a bit lately. I was like too bad you only had these 2 boxes i would have gotten more.

Why not? Maybe because it's better to do well with your customers than try to rob them whenever the opportunity presents itself. The smart businessman treats his customers right so they'll come back again.

People remember who wrongs them, and one day this guy may be hurting, or in need, and there'll be no one to help him because he took advantage of everyone.

Thats exactly right, and those who are there for us now and help us out when we need it and dont try and rob us will be getting my buisness even when all the panic settles down and ,they might not be the cheapest but they were there when needed.

How I wish that were true. The vast majority of consumers will not do this and never have. The memory that they got screwed will evaporate once they see the product 1 cent cheaper. The majority will ALWAYS buy the cheaper product. It is as certain as the sun coming up in the morning. My only hope is that the few that will support the fair dealers will be enough to keep them in business.

I scored three boxes of 9mm (100 rd boxes) for $76 this morning. Store clerk said 22LR never made it to the shelf. I was there at 8 am.
