Week 28. We have a clear winner with .38 Special. Also Ammunition To Go is really sweeping the board this week with cheaper ammo. And Munire is sporting some $0.09/round .22LR. Almost like seeing a unicorn… We do appreciate the support and constructive comments [Read More…]

Week 27. Okay. So based on an equal number of votes for each (that would be 2 votes) between .357 mag/.38spc, .30-06, and keeping 300BLK, what I am going to do is this. I’ll keep 300BLK as it takes really no work (it’s not very useful for trending but has a [Read More…]

Week 26 of data! Look out for the Mid Year Summary also posted today. There has not been a clear winner for a new caliber to replace 300BLK. There is still time to vote in the comments…! We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will continue this [Read More…]

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 [Read More…]

5.7x28mm vs .22 WMR

Military Arms Channel takes a look at the 5.7x28mm round versus your standard .22 WMR bullet. He shoots them out of their respective pistols. A FNH Five Seven and a Kel-Tec PMR-30. He even uses a SBR PS90 for the test. The test consists of seeing if over the counter [Read More…]

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 [Read More…]

Bullets Loaded Backwards

Saw this on Every Day No Days Off. Mike, of ENDO, posted a video by The Ammo Channel. The Ammo Channel looks at an internet myth of loading bullets backwards to increase damage. The results are interesting but it doesn’t seem like a good idea.

Week 23. It seems like there was less pistol available around the net this week. Plenty of .223 Rem and 7.62x39mm though. 22LR is still challenging to find in bulk. Again, keep up the voting on which caliber you would like to see added next quarter. We do appreciate the [Read More…]

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 [Read More…]

BUY BUY BUY BUY BUY

The last couple of years of “strong consumer demand” (panic buying) has finally come to an end. .22 LR ammunition is still thin on the ground (although easy to purchase online) but centerfire inventory is good, retailers are flush with AR-15 rifles and there [Read More…]

Week 20. So some of the tweaking did pull in some odd results, and I obviously did not check every link (1000 rd tumbler, etc…). I went a little more conservative with the data this week and spot checked a lot more. My overall goal is to add more data points so [Read More…]
