Ok guys i dont know about you but in Arizona a case of .223/5.56 is nearing 500 dollars

a box of 50 rounds of .45 acp is in the 20 dollar range for cheap ball range ammo

although i went into walmart and got 1000 rounds of 45 acp for 14dollars a box.. winchester whitebox

ammo prices have risen 3 times in 07 and will surely continue to

buy up now

Yes - I shoot CCI Blazer and buy it at Academy sports stores...

I got 3 boxes last week. They jacked the price up another $1 in the past month. Now, it's damn near $8 a box.

3 years ago, itw as $3.86 a box.

Yes, I saw that 9mm blazer went up to that a couple of months back. MOnarch is a little cheaper, but I don't care for the stuff.

Ok, so maybe I'm not going crazy. I was looking to buy some .45 ammo because I'm already dangerously low in my stocks and wanted to get in some spring shooting and I was shocked at prices. I could've sworn that things were significantly cheaper last time I bought ammo but had no way of knowing for sure what I had paid. Now I see other people noticing it too. All I want to do is loose off a few rounds now that winters over and its gonna cost me an arm and a leg to buy rounds and the other arm and leg buying gas to get to the range.

I dont even own a 45 acp but I been buying the winchester 100 round ball ammo from walmart lately. I fiquired if I ever get a 1911 or some type of 45 it wouldnt be a bad idea to buy the ammo now.

I'm glad I stocked up back in '05. If this keeps up I can resell it next year for three or four times what I paid... nah... not a good idea.

I just bought (200 rounds) at my local gun shop fun store for 9.95 a box of 50. Don't see a big change in price here. Last your I was paying 8.90.

Hey, I just realized that bullet prices went up less than gass prices :p
There has got to be a hidden meaning to that. LOL

Just think, if the dem's win in November, the price of ammo will go up even more.... That is if were even still able to buy it? :-?

i`ll tell you this much buy as much ammo as you can before election day. I bet you the price goes up even more regardless if Obama wins or loses. Just the fear of a demo getting into office as the president will probably scare up the price just from word of mouth and fear.
