Prices will never get back down to pre panic prices. The only way for them to come down in price is for everyone to stop buying. When everyone stops buying the dealers that have bought a large amount to rake in the cash get panicked & need to sell some to pay bills.
But as I have seen in past surges the prices don't come all the way back to pre panic prices. Maybe for a sale or promotion but not for good.

Exactly dead on correct. I have seen the same over the decades as well.

Not bad, at least given recent prices, but still almost double what I can reload it for. Given what I paid for the primers, powder, bullets and once fired cases, I'm reloading 115 grain 9mm for 17 cents a round.
Nah... im replying to the previous posts. They are saying prices wont drop below what they were prepandemic. I was posting those prices and my statement is i think prices will drop to those levels again.

To your post, i am currently reloading 124 grn jhp for 14.5cpr.

Speculating on future pricing right now is futile with an idiot in office. This country has a long ways to go. Lies, lies, lies, lies.......I guess some people believe them. As long as people hoard, prices will stay up. A lot of new people got into guns over the past two years and now they want ammo.

Well, truthfully, I don't reload because I save any money. My time and costs for all the equipment to do it probably negates it. I just do it because I enjoy it.
Now that is the truth. Most reloaders, especially nowadays, only figure in component costs.

Ha, managed to score a pound of CFE223 and CFEBLK powder this afternoon. The shelves of powder were loaded at one of the LGS's. First CFE223 I've seen in ages.

Heading that way again Friday morning, might go ahead and grab some more. They don't have any primers though.

I wrote a web page and used javascript to do the calculations. I plug in the price and quantity for each component and have it automatically add sales tax. I can add shipping if necessary. I plug in the powder amount for the given load and it then calculates cost per round. It'll do initial first time reload cost if I have added the cost of brass, then subsequent reload costs since the price of brass isn't needed. It calculates out to 18 decimal points and the final price is rounded to 2 decimal points.
