I saw a vendor at a gun show last week selling .223 for $1 a pull (1000 rds for $995.00) and some were actually buying it. I dunno...that's nuts to me but, to each his/her own.
Sportsman's Warehouse and others at the big stores have kept the prices the same before the election. I got 350 rounds of Blazer CCI Brass ammo in the green small amoo box for $95 estimated.
Not sure about .223/5.56 or .22LR, they are getting slim to none in their shipments. The crowd today was massive, the truck was late.
