Ammo Prices: 09/19/2014

Week 25. Next will will be the quarterly trending and summary!

Interesting ammo news this week too… The Brady Center announced that they will be filing a lawsuit against online ammo retailers that they claim supplied the Aurora theater shooter with ammo (among other things). It will interesting to see if that does anything to prices/availability in the next few weeks…

Again, keep up the voting on which caliber you would like to see added next quarter. So, starting in 2 weeks will be the change to caliber. We are going to drop 300BLK and add the most requested caliber (as tallied by comments/upvotes over the past few weeks).

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 – 20140918

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 certainly no expert on lawsuits (and hope I never will be), but shouldn’t a lawsuit against ammo makers in the Aurora case be limited to victim’s and their families? Not that I think that would be valid either, just wondering.

    It was nicer to see .22LR come a little closer to “reality” this week. Hopefully the downward trend continues.

      Brady does not have standing, they are the agitators who helped the family bring the case before the court. The lawsuit is stupid. Following their logic, if someone purchases rope to hang themselves or others, then those families can go after Home Depot for selling the rope. The company selling the product must know the premeditated intent of the person making the purchase. This will go nowhere but is intended simply to make headlines and give false hope to those families.

        Keep in mind that whenever a government funded entity takes you to court, you always loose. Not matter what the verdict is.

        They can drag it forever with their bottomless funds (our taxes) and even if you get a verdict in your favor, you will only get it after having spent all your money in legal fees.

          So yeah, lawsuit against the government is always punitive to you.

          A friend Wan his case against the government over aledged tax evasion.
          But he lost his house in the process. It would have been cheaper to plead guilty.

    This past week copper and brass as commodities saw drops. I see more emails for free shipping on ammo hopefully the trend has ammo going down.
    For those who reload, I have not seen powder and primers readily available nor cheap. Hopefully that changes. I usually do all my reloading December and January for my needs for the next 6 months or so.

    One might think with the 2005 Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act, that Brady Lawsuit would get tossed fast

    15 U.S.C. §§ 7901

    (5)
    Businesses in the United States that are engaged in interstate and foreign commerce through the lawful design, manufacture, marketing, distribution, importation, or sale to the public of firearms or ammunition products that have been shipped or transported in interstate or foreign commerce are not, and should not, be liable for the harm caused by those who criminally or unlawfully misuse firearm products or ammunition products that function as designed and intended.

    7)
    The liability actions commenced or contemplated by the Federal Government, States, municipalities, and private interest groups and others are based on theories without
    foundation in hundreds of years of the common law and jurisprudence of the United States and do not represent a bona fide expansion of the common law. The possible sustaining of these actions by a maverick judicial officer or petit jury would expand civil liability in a manner never contemplated by the framers of the Constitution, by Congress, or by the legislatures of the several States. Such an expansion of liability would constitute a deprivation of the rights, privileges, and immunities guaranteed to a citizen of the United States under the Fourteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution.

    I really appreciate your posts about ammo prices, as getting reasonably priced ammo in the last few years has been a problem. As a suggestion, when I check most of the lower priced ammo sites in your list, they have the cheap steel cased Russian or eastern European ammo, some of which are also made with copper coated iron bullets that will really wear your rifling. Is there any way you could also have a separate list of good quality American made ammo? Or other good quality, brass case, boxer primed, copper coated lead bullets ammo? That’s what I want to shoot so I don’t destroy my firearms. Thanks for your great work.

    Picked up 22LR at the local gun store for $3.88/50 rds. Saw bricks in a small town in Alaska in late August for $35. There is hope.

    Our local Dunham’s store is getting more and more 22’s in now. Buckets and bricks. I’ve never paid more than $21 a brick for any of the 22’s I have purchased recently. Dunham’s is just charging regular price. No ripoff’s here. Which mean’s that anybody else charging more than that is price gouging. Yeah they say they have to pay premium to get it but all boloney. Just plain ripoff. This 22 price gouging is coming to an end soon.

    I have skipped over these posts for weeks. I have been missing a valuable gathering of information for quite some time now. Thank you for putting all of this together, I won’t be skipping over it in the future.

  • Mike Price

    Tons of 22’s listed at online websites now. No shortage. You would think people would figure it out and quite paying high price and then they would have to drop the price. One online place lists 61 buckets of 22’s. That’s over 85,000 22’s at just one seller.

      Prices aren’t high everywhere. I have a few bricks of 22LR that my guns don’t like that I can’t even sell for $0.10/round. I’m in Denver and the lookers on ArmsList will flag anything over 10c/round.
