Default Anyone else notice ammo prices.

I was at Walmart today and noticed some price changes. I found that the norm on 223 and 5.56 was about 1.00 cheaper, and they had 9mm zQ ammo in the bulk $100 less tan before.it was $399 a Thousand to $299. What's up????

There has been some chatter on the interwebz about a possible ammo price drop, some say crash.

Pistol ammo is more readily available, so either the panic buyers have stopped paying outrageous prices to re-sellers or manufacturers are cranking it out faster.

I've seen 9mm and 223---556 so far. Not by much. But I have also seen something about glut and it will crash soon. That powder is going to start getting hard to get.

Ammo manufacturers base their production figures on last years sales. If manufacturers produce ammo to meet last years demand we should see $8 a box 9mm again in a few months. Many people stocked up on ammo at inflated prices. You have to consider all the ammo people bought in heavily populated states in the Northeast that won't buy any ammo this year in state. They will wait until they are out of ammo to drive to a free state to get ammo.

Well, they may have over manufactured to meet the demand, and when the demand slowed they have to lower the price.

any drastic drops in ammo prices is good for the consumer and will hopefully help starve out the price gougers.

i reload most of my ammo with the exception for 9mm and 223, but did buy some factory ammo simply to shoot and have fresh brass for reloading.

if ammo prices drop back to a reasonable level, i will start back shooting my 9mm pistol an my AR a little more. i will also probably buy up other ammo for fresh brass for reloading as well.

I have not gone out and about, since the last time at the range on the 7th June. Will do a check this week!

I watch prices and buy from freedommunitions.com. The prices have dropped drastically over the last several months.

Right now, 500 rounds of 115 grain 9mm remans are $102.25.
