Please tell us' I've looked everywhere I can think of. Sure you can find some but I think they are using gold casings.

IMO certain things will have a roll-back in prices while other things will not or will take longer to adjust. I think I read that there were something like 17 million 91/30 Mosin Nagants manufactured over time. I bought my first one 4 years ago for $69. I have recently seen them advertised for $150 and up. I have to believe that this is temporary since there are so many of them out there. A few years ago you could buy a 50 round box of 9mm Luger for $9-$10. It would be a coup if you could find it for less than $15 today. I think the prices for ammo will stay the same or get worse in the near future, especially when you consider the increased demand from law enforcement purchases (Homeland Security's recent purchase of 2 Billion rounds of ammo, plus other agency purchases). Everything GUN will become increasingly expensive the more the 2nd Amendment issues are in the spotlight. It is human nature to hoard those things that you feel you need that you will not be able to get when you need it. Note that when the weather forecast is for severe activity people flock to the stores to buy toilet paper and milk. Its not that people poop or drink more during bad weather, it is just human nature.

This hoarding happens every time the Democrats are in office. The prices always go down after they they lose both houses of congress. Just make sure you vote these SOBs out in Nov.

Pricing will come done...probably everywhere buy Walmart. Manufacturers will catch up, unlikely they will make any changed to the production because it would be only temporary. But it's going to be a few months, maybe 6 before supplies start to come back, so shoot sparingly (my opinion) untill you can replenish what you have. MIdway is posting some July and August dates for ammo, so it's going to be a while. Of the 2700 different guns that Able Ammo sells, they currently have only 11 models available now. After the government makes a decision, either way, things will begin to return to normal.

Well in my life experience once they go up like anything else they stay up ,lets hope the guy said will be an overflow after panic is over is right but they like money when they make guns and if they can get people to pay it they will keep charging it.I refuse to pay the ridiculous prices they are asking right now i will wait.
