Ammo Prices: 07/18/2014

ammo

Week 16.

A couple of the vendors contacted me today and wanted to pass on that they are seeing a run on ammo right now, likely due to the sanctions that were recently announced. Also given some of the other world events within the past couple of days we may see some supply issues if people start panic buying again. Despite these events, overall it seems that the prices of ammo are still slightly trending down (more vendors decreased prices slightly this week than those that increased).

So, should you buy ammo? Yep. It’s how you feed your guns and have fun shooting. But I wouldn’t buy from a sense of panic. Keep a good stock on hand and carry on.

Also, this week the only free shipping that I could identify was through Ammoman. I didn’t flag anything in the tables specifically.

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.

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. His latest venture is as one of the founders of IronSights.com; a search engine for all things gun related. 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.

    I’m sure this has been asked before but here I go…

    Why even bother putting up blackout and not putting up the vastly more common 5.45 caliber in it’s place?

    Also before I forget. Got any motrin, Doc?

    • Sulaco

      I thought the 5.45 imports had been halted by ATF last month…

      • USMC03Vet

        No.

        There was one specific type of 5.45 ammo banned which was 7n6 Russian surplus ammo because it had some steel in it’s core. You can import wolf and bear just fine. The banned ammo was corrosive as well.

    • Doc Rader

      We started putting in Blackout as there was a loud majority early on that clamored for it. Though lately, that well is getting pretty dry. Get a bunch of people to make some noise and I’ll look at adding 5.45…

      And I always have Vitamin-M for a Devil…

  • valorius

    What sanctions?

    • Stojespal

      First thing I thought of…maybe import ammo in the Soviet calibers? Just guessing, I have no idea either.

      • Zachary marrs

        Imports of certain Russian firearms has been halted

  • NotoriousAPP

    oh my sweet jesus, where are the graphs already!?!

  • The Hun

    I wish there was some way we could donate to in order to keep Hamas well supplied with ammo- after all- our tax dollars keep the Israelis supplied with it.

    • USMC03Vet

      hurr durr

      Palestinian terrorist authority gets billions in foreign aid from the United States and other countries and considering the squalor they live in it certainly isn’t going to anything legit in that region.

  • hahaha

    Thanks for your efforts.

  • What if there was a way to reload Berdan primered steel and brass with Boxer primers for…. AK-47 & SKS (7.62 X 39) AK-74 (5.45 X 39) Mosin-Nagant, Dragunov, Dragunov SVD (7.62 X 54R). Then you could reuse the previously fired cartridges that you normally throw away. Having a system like that could help ease pressure on ammo supplies for those Russian calibers.
