    What exactly determines the sudden rise in ammo nationwide? Not only are the prices rising quickly but some reliable online stores are simply out-of-stock on ammo. What gives? :eek:

    It's an election year man, not only do we have a communist incumbent but we are getting stuck with a liberal leaning Republican canidate. I would say that is the problem. I was just at the gun show this last weekend and the prices on loading supplies were still in line with what I've found the last few years, with a good deal thrown in here and there.

    doesnt help that every metal used in making bullets is rising in prices either. just like gas or food or any other commodity, the more osama obama prints money and spends more than the US govt takes in it devalues the dollar and prices of goods go up.

    Yup like the others said: metal prices rising, incumbent liberal president who will likely go to town on guns and ammunition if not ousted and the fact that most republicans believe even the front runner there may be bad for guns. People are buying, so the supply is depleting as the demand increases. It will get worse for some time in my view. Those who have the stock to sell are storing a lot more for personal use or to take advantage of later higher prices. The supply has been under pressure for some time anyways, as less was available as a percentage from factory as interest has been increasing.

    They already know it and are supporting a ban on lead in ammo. Supply and demand still drives the market. More people are getting afraid of the government and are buying guns and ammo. People are scared.

    All of that listed above, plus:

    Police forces downsizing
    Skittles uprising
    World war looming
    Drug gangs expanding
    Black panther groups putting bounties on American citizens
    Corporate greed playing on the fears of people
    Liberals controlling every part of American's lives
    Economy crashing
    Cultures going out of control

    Need any more ideas why ammo prices are increasing

    As well there is an increase in military and police cooperation. Many police departments are getting grants and equipment for militarization of their departments. Lots of fully automatic weapons, extra heavy duty body armor and armored personnel carriers. I saw a crew with all that gear in Grants Pass, Oregon last year coming out of a house. Sure looked like urban warfare training to me. Rather disturbing scene for a rather laid back town. The one good thing is that Josephine county has a Constitutional sheriff that is very happy to have armed citizens. He makes sure the good citizens applying for CCW licenses get them as quickly as possible. Thank God for LEO's like him.

    As with everything, it is called inflation (due to the value of the
    disintegrating dollar) and just because the media and the government
    are not calling it what it is doesn't mean it is not happening.

    Keep your powder dry.

    Dead on the money JonM. If you guys want to continue to buy ammo I suggest you invest in some Chinese stocks. The only way we can "afford" to pay back the Chinese is to destroy our currency.

    Not trying to be rude, but I want to hear what ur reasons are. I don't want to assume we have the same reasoning.
