Has anyone noticed a recent hike in ammo prices? Just getting 50-100 rounds for the range has seemed to double. I've heard rumors it has to do with all the shootings around? I doubt that could be 100% true just thought I would throw it out there to see if anyone has noticed the same....

Working Christmas eve allows for lots of extra time to browse around on here. :p

I would agree with that. I buy my ammo from www.slickguns.com go to the ammo tab it searches all around for the best prices and it has it Price per round and by the time you ship its still about half of what everyone else wants.

Supply and demand. The ammo manufactures are still trying to get back up to speed and the hoarders are still at it.

That is a nice thing about reloading, you can do it a lot cheaper than factory ammo and you can usually wait until you find the components that you need if you stock up when they are available.

Haha yeah I have stocked up for what I have, but I'm getting a new Glock for Christmas (or already got ;-)) so I am working to stock up for that as well

As others stated, you are a little late to the party.

There has been a consistent run on ammo that is on going. Some of this has to do with states / city's trying to implement a "per bullet" tax. Seattle for example already implemented it, 2 or 4 cent tax PER ROUND, depending on the type of cartridge ... so smart people there have been stocking up to avoid the tax. Others are doing it as well, especially with reloading components.

IMO... ammo prices are cheap compared to what they will be in 2-3 years. I'd also be looking at AR15 lowers... they are dirt cheap now all things considered, but when Pres Clinton re-implements the Assault Weapons Ban v2.0 prices will skyrocket, and lots of ammo will become incredibly hard to find.
