Ammo Prices: 07/11/2014

Week 15 (of data).

I took last week off to celebrate the 4th with my family–I hope this didn’t impact your thirst for data trending…

I think I’ve found a somewhat reliable way to flag entries if they are free of shipping costs, but it is going to take a small DB change and some updates that I did not get around to this week–but be on the lookout for it next week.

Once again, The Armory continues to dominate the lowest in caliber competition. Also, it looks like more vendors have reduced prices than have increased across the board.

We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will continue this article series as long as it is productive.

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 the other readers know. Also, if you know of any vendors that are not represented here and you have had a good experience with, comment below and we will see about adding them.

We have included the raw data so you can run your own trends: Weekly Ammo – 20140710

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.

    thanks

  • DaveC79

    Thanks guys for taking the time to do this, and update it.

  • M.

    I’m never going to see .22 again. I can’t believe how long it’s been so inflated.

  • Limonata

    During this mess I started to learn how to reload and reload now instead of hunting for ammo. If I could easily and economically reload 22lr I would.
    However, I now see another shortage. I have difficulty finding Powder and Primers and LGS’s have to limit sales to 3lbs of powder and 3 packs of primers.
    It seems easier to find factory center fire ammo than it is to find reloading components.
    Is anyone who reloads experiencing the same?

  • Limonata

    I guess good news is across the board except for 7.62x39mm the highest prices have seen major drops. The low prices have held steady except for 7.62x39mm and the averages remain flat. All good news, now if we can find some 22LR across the USA with some regularity, things would be pretty good again.

  • Sadist

    Are prices forecast to drop further? I’m debating whether or not to buy now or wait it out a bit more…

  • http://www.sagerange.com SageRange

    I keep hoping for ammo prices to return to pre-scare levels but I think they will stay elevated for a while longer yet.

    • RickyBobby

      Aside from 22lr and x39, things seem to be havering around pre sandy hook levels, no?

  • lifetimearearesident

    I have said this before and I will say it again. Why is a niche caliber included? The 300blk is not a popular round. I think it should be replaced with a more popular caliber. 45-70 or 30-30 or 30-06 come to mind as possible replacements.
    PS – Overall this is a great project and I really appreciate the work!

  • Aeronaut Steve

    I am back into reloading after 20-years of buying factory loads. I have found the most material – primers, powder, etc. – and advice on the subject of reloading at Hyatt Gun Shop, 3332 Wilkinson Blvd in Charlotte, NC 28208, 704-394-0387, http://www.hyattguns.com. Ask for John.
    On a similar subject…I am considering casting round nose lead bullets to reload .45 ACP. One choice of a 230 grain mold casts a .452 bullet. Does anyone know if this .452 needs to be resized before seating and crimping it into a .45 ACP cartridge case? I called Kimber and they politely declined to answer for liability and warranty reasons; lawyers seem to prevail even in the absence of a lawyer. I am also curious if the .452 cast bullet needs a gas cap. Info would be appreciated. John at Hyatt seemed to think a .452 bullet cast with #2 Alloy should not have any problems from molding to seating to crimping to firing. Anyone have personal experience?
