Ammo Prices: 4/04/2014

ammo

Please enjoy our second week of posting ammo prices compiled from across the web.

We have included 300 AAC BLK per the request of a number of you in the comments from last week. We have also added a couple of new vendors.

After a couple of more weeks collecting data, we plan to show some analytics.

Again, prices posted are exclusive of shipping (unless the vendor includes that in the price). The number in parentheses following the price is the cost per round.

As always, if you have comment or witticisms, please leave them below. And if you find that some of the items are now out of stock or the prices have significantly changed, please let us know.

    5.45 not listed. Stupid ATF.

    • Steve Truffer

      Suprisingly, 5.45 costs haven’t gone up, its just hard to find milsurp and silver bear. 0.15-0.20 depending on who you buy from & if you count shipping.
      ETA: Red Army Standard is Ukrainian / Romainian, and is like an fmj counterpart to Hornady Steel Match, at half the cost.

      • The Red Army ammo Century sells is pretty good stuff. Less residue, accurate no steel cases hanging up in the chamber.

        • n0truscotsman

          I have fallen in love with Silver Bear myself, but I need to give the red army 5.45 the old college try.
          My Vepr loves the Hornady and Silver bear brands.

    • Steve (TFB Editor)

      We never planned on listing them. It takes Tom quite a long time to compile these lists so we are just covering the most popular rounds.

      • plumber576

        Sorry for my whining. As a 5.45 shooter I was just making this comment to vent frustration and shed more light on the 7N6 situation. Good write-up, I really appreciate the information provided.

      • NotoriousAPP

        You should have one of your savvy readers write some scripting that runs a weekly report to go and get the data and make a summary table.

  • Daniel Prickett

    I hope every place with a listing for 22 ammo goes under.

    • 1911a145acp

      Hhhmm… yes…. That should foment competition and bring prices down

      • Chris

        There is no competition, there’s an entire group of people out there hoarding all the 22lr they can get their hands on. As consumers, if we buy 22lr at these ridiculous prices, those prices will stay inflated. The only person that benefits from this is the price gouging middleman. I hope he goes out of business too.

        • 1911a145acp

          Your words- “I hope every place with a listing for 22 ammo goes under.”
          If every place that sells 22 lr goes under where are you going to get it from? Your later statement answers your own question- If buyers keep buying 22 ammo at inflated prices those prices will stay inflated-Yes, and some one will meet the demand. I had a buddy sell 35K round of rimfire at a gun show last year- It was all gone in 4.5 hours. Evidently he sold it too cheap at 4 x the “normal” price. I didn’t see him hold a gun to anyone’s head and force them to buy it. If you don’t need it or don’t want to pay the price – don’t. The market sets the price- the problem is the buyers- not the sellers. I don’t know anyone who is a good enough salesman to sell merchandise at 4x the market value.

          • Chris

            Yes, that’s exactly what I said, I want everyone that sells 22lr to go out of business. Wrong. That’s clearly not what Daniel said either. We’re talking about the gougers. The price of 22 hasn’t gone up, the manufacturers are not making any more money. For instance, Walmart is still charging around $25 for 550rd boxes of golden bullets. Same price as before Newtown. The problem is that you can’t get it because of greed. That’s the only way to describe it, greed. I typically don’t fault a business for trying to make money, but this is getting ridiculous. As if the gun shops aren’t making enough as it is off of firearm sales, apparently they have to wring our tits for every last nickle on ammo too.

          • 1911a145acp

            How do you know that WalMart isn’t “gouging” you? Should YOU decide how much profit a seller makes on anything? Can I decide how much YOUR employer pays you? How do you gouge someone who willingly hands over the cash? If you won’t pay it how are you getting gouged? I didn’t hear any body complain when AR prices fell through the floor. Do you stop at the gas station and demand that they sell you gas at last year’s price?If you don’t like the price DON’T pay it! The free market will put the gougers out of business. If I offered you 10 times what you just paid for your precious box of 550 Golden bullets -you wouldn’t sell it right? Because you wouldn’t want to gouge me? If your house was for sale at 100K and a developer offered you 150K to get out right now- you would say naah just keep that extra 50K- I will only sell it at a “fair” price. Ridiculous.

          • Chris

            I understand free market, do you understand greed?

          • 1911a145acp

            Your statement is completely contrary. You don’t understand the free market at all.The free market IS greed. The free market will not allow gouging to continue. The free market will not allow consumers or retailers to get something for nothing or too little for too much.You are free not to pay it.

          • Chris

            Your statements are completely contrary. Does the free market put gougers out of business, or does the free market equal greed? I understand free market, and it isn’t greed. The only competition going on is a race to see how high the gougers can drive the price of 22.

          • gunslinger

            yeah it does. why? if you’re selling .22 at $1 a round, i can come in at $0.90 (assuming that my cost is less than that) and take away your customers and still turn a profit. sure i can come in at a buck and maybe take some customers, or gain some new ones. but by under cutting you i can guess how much business i’ll steal, plus how much more i’ll make.

            it wouldn’t make sense for me to come in a $1.10 because no one would buy from me. now you either need to match my price to stay competitive, raise your price for your “loyal” customers to keep profits or try and undercut me to “win back” your customers, and take some of my unique customers.

            to quote a famous wall street guy….”Greed is good”

            i will admit that this is based on someone willing to take the risk to come in at .9/rnd. but because the market is greedy, consumers want the most bang for their buck. so if they can get the same round cheaper, they want that. and the sellers want to make as much as possible. so they need to move their product. rounds on the shelf at 100% markup make no money for the seller. they need to adjust their price to move their product. either because they have competition selling at lower, or because their customers perceive their cost as too high, and not worth it.

          • 1911a145acp

            So…. with this last post you are RE STATING that you don’t understand the free market. Please explain how gougers are setting prices? If that were the case- I am just going to decide that I am going to sell all my 22 lr for $1000 a brick- there done! All I have to do is sit back and sell the 3 boxes a day I get from WalMart and retire! The market sets prices. Nobody is going to starve if they don’t get a box of 22 in the next few days, they must be OK with paying current prices because they KEEP doing it! Have you EVER sold anything you had for MORE than what you paid for it? I’m sure you have. if so, then you did the same thing you claim the gougers are doing. YOU want to decide what a fair profit is for other sellers and buyers and THAT is not the free market. A small amount of selfishness and greed is what makes us all get up and go to work every day- you don’t go to work for free or nearly free do you?

    • Alliance Ammunition

      Daniel, may God Bless You too. My family works hard to get our 22LR, 9MM and 300BLK to you at better prices than anyone out there. I was a defense contractor who was given an RIF with a baby and three year old on the way. I’m not sticking it to anyone but I do need to make money to feed our family and keep a roof over our head. Please keep in mind that there’s expenses in acquisition of these products. They don’t magically just appear and I’d be happy to sell them to you at pre-2012 pricing if others were (like our other products) but I can’t. Otherwise we would be on welfare!
      Please be mindful of how you consider others and if you want that pricing, it’s still around – but you must look really hard or make a big risk in massive bulk investment. We will get some samples out to TFB for review soon! Special lots of 9mm 115/124gr UHP and 300BLK in 125gr Sierra MK and LE issue 155gr Barnes made for barrier penetration. Thank all of you for your business!

      • Christine

        What was the price of your .22 ammo 2 years ago?

        • Alliance Ammunition

          Christine, we did not sell 22LR two years ago as it was not in demand at this time until late 2012. It was around the same competitive prices as other companies had offered and we even sold in 2100 Federal 22LR 36gr cases when they came in. They sold as fast as the hit the door. To my knowledge, we still are 33% lower than any online retailer.

  • Karina

    Whoa. .380 ACP is bullshit expensive these days.

    • Garrett

      Twice the price for 2mm shorter casing. Hilarious I must admit.

  • zts

    First, thanks for doing this. I know how much time this must take to compile for us. Second, could you please make the caliber a column heading? Maybe it’s just my browser (I’ll check on another machine w/ another browser) but the calibers are just a horizontal list before the table of retailers and prices are rendered.

    • Doc Rader

      Good catch! That was my error–sorry about that. Should be fixed now.

  • Aaron E

    Tom thank you for the dedicated research and the quick links. Always good to see price comparisons from multiple sources when getting ready to pull the trigger on a big purchase.

    • Doc Rader

      You are welcome. And I’m glad some people are getting some use out of this. I was doing this for myself anyway (yes, a bit OCD), though not for this number of dealers. I tend to not be very picky with the type of ammo I shoot–I’ve long since gotten rid of any finicky guns–and I like to shoot a lot so bulk is key.

  • Chris

    I’ll sell every 22lr I have before I pay more than 4 cents a round for ammo. These ammo hoarders are artificially driving prices up, its sickening.

    • Alliance Ammunition

      Chris, it’s disturbing indeed. A recent article in American Rifleman has answered this question really well. It’s US that is driving this shortage and entities like Alliance now manufacture just for that reason. Each year there are more of us, who are now shooting all of these 22LR semi-auto AR variants, not to mention handguns – moreover those who are concerned with our current and possible outcomes for another presidential administration with further concerns on the Republican loss of the House.
      http://www.americanrifleman.org/mobile/article.php?id=26757
      All of these factors and yes, the people who grab all they can see for fear it won’t be there – are making the perfect storm for this. It even hurts the little guy like me, I’m not the middleman – we produce as well as we buy what we can from ATK (Federal / CCI / Speer), Olin (Winchester), Remington UMC and PNW Arms directly; so we aren’t the hoarders here. The real truth here people is that this is going to be awhile until the market can level out and until that happens, who knows what will happen. What is certain is this, we will do all we can to get products to you at the best prices possible. Larry Potterfield is a great guy but I hope those of you will take a moment to consider us on your next purchase! We get new products every two weeks. Thank you all and God Bless America!

      • Chris

        Thank you, and I will check you guys out.

      • Christine

        If you think people are buying-up .22lr because they fear they won’t be able to get any, you’re delusional! The VAST majority of .22 ammo is being bought and resold for profit!

  • Dan

    Great info but doesn’t Gunbot have the same info?

  • matt RRC

    $89.00 for 1,000 9mm at gun shows. Thats what I miss. That wasn’t that long ago.

  • insertjjs

    Could you add the State that these Companies operate in? I just hate it when you find a decent deal on ammo only to find I have to pay Shipping and Sales Tax and that the deal isn’t that good anymore.

  • gunslinger

    Can you indicated who includes shipping with the price? or maybe even show how much it costs (if called out as a seperate line item or “free”)

    at least we can know that the one that costs 15% more or w/e includes shipping? might not be a true apples-apples, but well help out.

    thanks
