Ammo Prices: 08/29/2014

Week 22.

Looks like Fiocchi is putting out 300BLK to distributors now–there are several vendors with some.

And 22LR is even more “stupid” expensive. Did something happen recently that depleted the stock?

.223 Rem is all over the board this week. Brass is 50% more expensive in most cases, but some vendors have really increased prices on even the cheap Russian stuff…

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

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.

    What I do not understand is why .22LR is three to five times as expensive as it was not that many years ago. I seem to remember buying boxes of Remington Goldens or Federals in bonus boxes of 55 for under $20–or is senility setting in? I still have three hundred rounds of Minimags that I bought for .10 ea (during the rush right after Obama’s first election) that I am afraid to shoot because they have become downright irreplaceable.

    • allannon

      I think mfgs are making larger, more profitable rounds in favor of .22.

  • Zachary marrs

    Do most people just buy bulk all the time? For me its 50 rounds for pistol (sometimes rifle) and 20 rounds for rifle

    • USMC03Vet

      Well if you order online you basically have to because of shipping. Compared to prices here locally I certainly get more bang for my buck. It really depends on how often you go to the range though. If you go monthly/weekly you can save a lot of money buying bulk.

      • Zachary marrs

        Ill buy bulk if I get a new toy, but I reload, so I dont buy much over 20-50 rounds at a time

        • USMC03Vet

          Well that makes. I’m a pleb and don’t reload so bulk purchase for me.

    • allannon

      I do, because it’s cheaper per round, and I’ll shoot it eventually.

      That, and I just like to shoot, so I might spend a couple hours at the range on a Saturday and blow through a couple hundred rounds each of 3-4 different calibers.

  • Bill Rushmore

    “And 22LR is even more “stupid” expensive. Did something happen recently that depleted the stock?”

    Sorry, that was me. I bought a brick when I saw one for $47.

    In all seriousness, that’s still the only thing I never see at my local places I normally shop. Once in a while I see some target stuff but that’s it. I am beginning to wonder if this is ever going to be fixed. Air guns are starting to look like a real good alternative for cheap practice.

  • grego

    http://www.freedommunitions.com/9mm-115-gr-RN-New-p/fm9r115n-b0500.htm 105.33 for 500rnds 9mm 115gr from freedom munitions. I don’t think you are crawling the FM site properly as the round in the table is not the inexpensive ball ammo, but is hornady xtp, which should be more expensive.

    It does seem like FM has seen a run on 9mm lately… which is most interesting

  • tru16200

    Am I the only one who cant see the 9mm Best Prices column b/c its cutoff by an ad?
    No big deal, just irritating.
