Ammo Prices Summary: 03/28/2014 to 06/20/2104

DATA

Welcome to our first rollup from the previous 13 weeks of data collection. We have presented the data in a few different ways. We have a breakdown of the vendors that are consistently low and high. We are showing the lowest and highest recorded prices for a caliber (as well as the average). We have also broken down the data for each vendor, showing the prices we logged for each caliber they listed, with the mins, maxes, and averages. And finally we have displayed graphs of the trends.

Some of the general observations (in no particular order):

  • .380 ACP is trending down
  • Most vendors hold pretty consistent week to week
  • Most calibers remain pretty close in price across vendors
  • We need more vendors selling 300BLK... :)
  • Despite current world events, ammo prices are holding pretty steady

So, for this quarter. Buy ammo and get out and shoot. I personally am going to be interested to see what the trending looks like in a year, and if general trends can be loosely correlated with current world events... Thank you all for your support with this experiment over the past weeks. Yes, we know you can find realtime prices on the various ammo search engines, but to date I haven't found any where that is doing any real trending. Over the next quarter I am considering attempting to add in casing types (brass, steel, other) if I can find a way to efficiently and accurately do it.

As always please leave us comments. I really enjoy constructive feedback!

Bang It Ammo sold a higher quality of ammo and was not techinically comparative. They do have bulk ammo closer in range, but I did not register that earlier in the data collection.

Tom is a former Navy Corpsman that spent some time bumbling around the deserts of Iraq with a Marine Recon unit, kicking in tent flaps and harassing sheep. Prior to that he was a paramedic somewhere in DFW, also doing some Executive Protection work between shifts. Now that those exciting days are behind him, he has embraced his inner “Warrior Hippie” and assaults 14er in his sandals and beard, or engages in rucking adventure challenges while consuming craft beer. To fund these adventures, he writes medical software and builds websites and mobile apps. He hopes that his posts will help you find solid gear that will survive whatever you can throw at it–he is known (in certain circles) for his curse…ahem, ability…to find the breaking point of anything.

Tom’s Standard Boilerplate: I like to take a gun out a couple of different times for a shoot for assessment. Once to just blow through some rounds and get a feel for how it functions and operates (usually three to four magazines worth). Then I like to take it a second time on a different day to run some drills (12 “el Presidente” drills). I also like to shoot the crappiest ammo I have since I’ve never encountered a firearm that won’t run quality ammo. I have had, on the other hand, a number of weapons that do not like “cheap” ammo. I’m not an olympic competition shooter, so having a firearm in my arsenal that requires a very specific brand and/or configuration of ammo is not something I want.

    Thanks Tom for doing all this resurch for us.I have shared this site and information with other members of our club and they have gotten back to me with thanks because they’ve used this info for buying what they need.

    • Doc Rader

      Quite welcome. I think the main utility of this comes from the long term views. Now that we have 3 months of data, you can see that prices are pretty stable and consistent, and you should be able to find ammo at the average.

  • Lanette Atkins

    Thanks for all the work you have put into this. It gets more interesting every month. I agree with you that the longer term trends are really useful. I asked this when you first got started and it may be too difficult to add, but I wonder about 7.62×39 with brass casings. I am really interested in bulk with plans for reloading. If not able to include, I would love to know if you have a general idea of the best places yo start for comparison. Thanks again. Lanette

  • Limonata

    Thanks for all the work and for posting the weekly data.
    It will be a very interesting read after a year because you can see season spikes. You can also map world events to charts to see if anything is moved by them. You will also be able to see what happens after mid-terms and start of the presidential season/

    • Doc Rader

      Welcome. That is what interests me also–seeing how our environment changes the pricing.

  • TheBest

    Can you remove re-manufactured ammo brands (LAX, Freedom, etc.)? It skews the commercially available stuff.

  • gunslinger

    such data
    much numbers
    very stats

  • avconsumer2

    lol – .22 – precisely the clusterf**k I expected.

  • Paul White

    the nerd in me gets a little giddy looking at all this.

  • Blake

    Thanks, this is spiffy :-)
