CNSNews.com reports that ammunition prices at Hyatt Gun’s in NC have doubled since December …
We “immediately started rationing” as there are “a lot of unknowns for deliveries of products,” Hyatt said.
The 5.56mm was selling for $0.50 a round in mid-December. Today it sells for $1.00/round; a 100 percent increase in price.
Mr. Hyatt also said that 50 rounds of 9mm were selling for $10.99 – but, they’re now priced at $24.00 per box. This represents an increase of 118 percent.
Hyatt says the talk around his shop these days is that, next week, it’ll cut the number of rounds allowed per purchase in half – and the week after that, they’ll just show their customers a picture of a box of ammo.
There has been no better time to start reloading.
Many thanks to Jay for the tip.
