Week 21.

What other calibers would you like to see starting next quarter? So far there have been requests for: 6.8 SPC and 38 Special? Vote for your favorites in the comments.

Also, I should be bringing back Freedom Munitions (as well as a couple of others) into the list next week. My aggregator was excluding them for a dumb (but technical) reason.

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 – 20140821

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.

  • JM

    The aggregator picked up on cast bullets for 9mm case of 500. The link directs to speer 125 gr lead bullets.

  • PR

    I’d like to see 6.8 spc.

  • Steveo

    300BLK is NOT $0.05/per. You have your wires crossed somewhere. If you can get it for $0.05/piece I’ll buy 100,000 rounds TODAY.

  • Bs

    I’d like to see 50 BMG, but that’s probably just me. Any of the magnums (357 or 44) would be nice.

  • Adam

    I just found this blog and will be checking back on a daily basis I’m sure. Have you ever thought about including some sort of historical price over a given time frame? I’m all about getting a good deal (as most people are) so I would hate to buy a brick of .22LR for $50 when it’ll be worth $40 next week. Bullets are now trading like the stock exchange, so maybe we could get a graph going of what specific “trends” are for each type of round. Thanks for the great work!

  • Hitman9921

    17HMR and 17 WSM would be good to see.

  • lifetimearearesident

    Said it before and will say it again. I think the 300blk should be removed from the list. It’s a niche caliber that is not stocked by much of anyone. As to what to add just look at the calibers that sell the most and choose some of them.

    • big daddy

      I agree, I have an partially built AR15 ready and wanting a .300AAC barrel. I will not put one together until the prices go down for acceptable range ammo, which could be never.

    • Doc Rader

      Yep, I’m planning on removing it after the next quarter summary, and is why I am trying to get a consensus on a replacement caliber.

  • reubadoob

    The 300BLK from Botach Tactical for $0.05 PPR is way off. The acutal product is $23 for 20 rounds of 187 grain subsonic. Actual PPR is $0.86.

  • gunslinger

    so why is .22 cheaper at 500 rounds than it is for 1000?

  • big daddy

    I’d like to put a .300 AAC barrel on a parts AR I have. I’m waiting for the prices of ammo to go down. I just do not understand why the ammo is so expensive. They are missing the boat on this one, it’s so easy to change over and it seems like a good round.

  • Zebra Dun

    I have not seen any new .22 lr, .22 Magnum or .17 caliber for sale in three years, not at stores, flea markets or yard sales.
    The stuff just ain’t.
    I have rifles in .22 lr that I don’t shoot because I cannot replace the ammo for them.
    I would not at this time buy any rifle, pistol or revolver in .22 lr, .22 magnum nor .17 rim fire either.
    Basically if someone gave me a .22 or I found one I’d keep it, but buy one?
    What for? It’s just a pretty blued hunk of metal.
    I used to not be able to buy .25 acp for my Aunt Mary’s l’il Galesi-Brescia I inherited, now I can buy this by the 1,000 rd bag.
    It is what me and the grandson’s shoot for fun and plinking. Those and the various .38’s that .22 lr is history.
