    Like many, my son and I are buying plenty of ammo for all calibers we have. Walmart prices here as good as it gets for most. Recently bought 3 x 500 round bags of this AIM ammo, 55gr FMJ brass case, $169 each "manufactured in U.S. by U.S. Defense Contractor". Want to buy 4 more bags but have not shot the stuff yet---cold winter here! Aguila a penny less, but not U.S. made. Worried about prices going up again, but don't want to regret buying it.

    Look, you gotta face the facts- if you did not buy the ammo, you would just waste the money on non-essential things- clothing, food, shelter. Remember- one cannot be too wealthy, too handsome or have too much chocolate or ammo. :rolleyes:

    The price of ammo seems to have leveled off for right now, since the feeding frenzy has died down somewhat. Will it go down? I doubt that it will drop much. Will it go up? Well, look at the price of a McDonald's Cheeseburger over the past 20 years, and you tell me.

    However, my crystal ball is still in the shop- problem with calibration, so I really can't give you an accurate answer. But you are asking a man with a lifetime supply of 7.62 Russian and 8mm Mauser if you should buy ammo????:p

    buy as much as you can afford when its available...a gun without ammo is just a nice stick
