I was browsing for ammunition and found that 1000 rounds of 5.56 NATO Lake City XM855 FMJ 62 Grain Steel Penetrator ammunition just jumped from $999.95 to $1,495.59. If I remember correctly this same ammunition last summer was selling for around $350.00 for a thousand rounds.
Remember, Limbaugh always says the cure for high prices are high prices and they are certainly going up. I also was at Walmart and they had none of the common calibers. No .45, .40, .22LR, 5.56, or .223. Cabela's had plenty of .45 and .40 but no .22LR, 5.56 or .223.
OMG, make it stop.
My local Walmart wanted $22 for 20 rounds of Federal 9mm. It’s nuts.
Cheaper than Dirt is the King of all Gougers. Check Gunbot from time to time. It’s a real time tracker of in stock ammo and it updates automatically. All the stuff that’s a good price goes pretty quick.
Whaaa......buck fifty a round? Ouch.
Why is DHS buying all the ammo who do they intend to shoot with 2 billion rounds of ammmo, 19 hijackers?
what is the role of DHS? is it Obama’s civilian military just as powerful just as well funded as the real military except outside of the Hague convention on hollow points?
Now I’m going to have to pay capital gains tax if I sell any.
Cheaper than Gold...
Dry up demand and put weak dealers out of business. Defacto gun control.
Cheaper than dirt sucks.
I also just bought ar AR-74 just because the ammo is so cheap.
1000 Round Case of Federal 9mm Luger Centrefire - 124 gr FMJ $319.99
I would prefer the Winchester white box.
I ran across some 100-round 9mm Federal value packs today at Walmart, $21 and change. Got my limit. Not bad.
Stop buying from CTD.
At least CTD is making a market.
If you don't like their prices...don't buy.
In the end, a thing is worth what people are willing to pay for it.
I have bought from CTD when I thought I needed that ammo despite the high prices...and I was glad to get it.
Complaining about ammo prices is like complaining about a rising stock market.
I know you aren't a communist, so lay off the commie lingo.
Free markets are not fixed as to price. They fluctuate with supply and demand.
Sitting tight on whatever I have. They have helicopters, tanks and drones. We have the people, and we know the ground we walk on. It’s a 50/50 shot at best, for them. If the odds change we’ll have to go on the offensive - given the most current situation. No other President in my lifetime has given me reason to think this way.
