Ammo Prices: 09/12/2014

ammo

Week 24.

Overall it looks like more vendors have slight reductions in PPR than have increased. There is some 22LR for $0.10 (but only 3 boxes when I compiled this); otherwise it is still silly expensive. Or maybe we just need to move on and accept that these are the new prices(and secretly wish that we had all stocked up when it was cheap).

Again, keep up the voting on which caliber you would like to see added next quarter.

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 – 20140911

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.

    Thanks for the report.

    10¢/rnd is silly expensive for 22LR; just cheaper than everything else out there…

      Well, it’s expensive by the old “normal,” but as Tom said, maybe it’s the new normal. I think that it will slowly decrease, but I doubt that we’ll ever see 3-4 cents/round bulk again. What I want to see is the supply increase so that I can go into one of the big box stores or an LGS and see ammo on the shelves. It might be happening in some parts of the country, but not in the St. Louis area.

          Thanks. I didn’t know about that, although I haven’t seen that much red since last Christmas!

        You can find bulk boxes of 525 and 375 readily at a local chain for 25.00. Just have to be there at the right time as they limit it to 1 box per customer

  • Found local .380 today. First time in three months!

    Thank God as a retiree I “work” part-time in a full-service gun store. I’m allowed to buy bricks but only one a day or until we’re down to five bricks wherein we break them down and sell them in individual boxes with a 2 box limit.

    Let’s talk the “new normal” on .22 pricing. Fortunately, we’re selling bricks for between $25 and $38 depending on the brand and quality of the ammunition. Anyone who is fortunate enough to come upon a gun store’s fresh shipment of .22s and then balk at the price of $25, $30, or even $40 a brick is living in la la land. You’ll spend more money in gasoline and tie up more of your time looking for that “good deal on .22” that you’re actually engaging in a penny pinching, high blood pressure false economy. JUST BUY THE STUFF and go have some fun … . Sheesh!

    For you tightwads who act like a bunch of gypsies hoping to find bricks for under $20, if you wait another four or five months into the deepest part of winter, .22 ammunition manufacturers might catch a consumer respite of sorts and one might find more .22 LR on the shelf … but dollar to donuts the prices will still be well over $20/brick. And though active shooters aren’t likely to be as active during the winter months, everyone will still be buying bricks where available instead of just settling for a box or two per purchase like we did in the past.

    To date, the best .22 LR ammunition I’ve bought over the last four months is 40 grain high velocity Aguila that’s Eley primed and made in Mexico! Functions in every semi-auto pistol and rifle I have, very much like Blazer Mini-Mag Long Rifle. The 36 grain stuff, even the “high-velocity” offerings, won’t reliably cycle my Ruger Mark II, M&P .22. or my Colt Woodsman … though the latter is very well “broken-in” and will cycle the best. The worst ammunition out there IMO and experience is Remington’s Golden Bullet offering. Lot’s of misfires due to lack or powder or lack of priming compound in the rims. Remington’s less refined Thunderbolts are more reliable.

    Sports Academy in Florence SC is selling 50 round boxes of Federal 22lr for $2.19 a box 2 box limit. I bought a 525 round box of Winchester 22lr there for 18.99. one box limit, so I bought a box and my wife bought a box. This was a week ago, not tens years, As long as people keep paying ridiculous prices for ammo the price will stay ridiculous.
