TFB’s Very Own Live Ammo Feed!

You may have noticed that we haven’t produced the weekly ammo post in a couple of months. Some of you were probably like “Thank goodness!”. But for those of you that sent email wondering where it had gone (which was definitely a few), I would like to introduce [Read More…]

Week 44. .223 Rem is a little north of $0.30/rd at most places (which is consistent with the average over the last nine months). Availability seems to be a little lower, though. Other prices and calibers seem to be generally holding prices and availability. We do [Read More…]

Week 43. Well, .223 Rem appears to be running low–at least the number of vendors (of the ones I’ve been following) don’t have the stock they did. A number of the vendors aren’t even listing it. Woohoo for all of the panic buyers. I imagine that [Read More…]

Week 42. So, despite the panic runs on M855 it looks like all non M855 is holding fine–I’m not seeing much difference in pricing for lowest in caliber for .223 Rem. We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will continue this article series [Read More…]

Week 41. So, I’d like to address the casing type. At this point (with only 11 more weeks of this experiment), adding in any additional vectors would literally double (at the least) the work. Not all of the vendors clearly identify casing which then necessitates [Read More…]

Week 40. We’re back! We figured that a couple of weeks off was okay since we’d be flooded with SHOT posts and it would be lost in the shuffle. We are in the last quarter of this experiment and overall the response has been pretty supportive. Hopefully the [Read More…]

Week 37. Next week will be the 3rd quarter summary. I have hopes that Santa has corrected the .22LR supply/demand imbalance. The past week I have seen .22LR at several local retailers (and there were not hordes of ammo scavs grabbing it as soon as it hit the shelves). [Read More…]

Week 36. Terrible price on 1000 round lots of .22LR. Despite that, more vendors have slight decreases in price per round than have increases. So, go out and buy ammo as holiday gifts for people… 🙂 We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will [Read More…]

Week 35. A lot of prices are up this week–must be pre-holiday price raising. Still, ammo makes a great Christmas/Hanukkah/[Insert Holiday of Choice]/etc. gift, and with the lower gas prices, maybe there is some extra cash to put toward shooting… We do [Read More…]

Week 34. Well, no super great deals for Black Friday. Which is technically good for the trending data (since we don’t want the data skewed), but not as good for people looking for bargains. That said, a number of you have mentioned the use of search engines for [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 11/21/2014

Week 33. 500 rounds of 9mm for under $100 at SG Ammo–that is the cheapest I’ve seen in a while. Other than that, not a whole lot of changes. Hopefully next week we will see some “Black Friday Deals”… 🙂 We do appreciate the support and [Read More…]

Week 31. Again .22LR is coming in around $0.10/rd. And I agree with a number of the comments from last week. You can find bricks cheap locally in a lot of places. Which is going to be really important for a review I have coming out in a couple of weeks… It looks [Read More…]

Week 30. Run for it. Munire has .22lr for $0.10/rd. But only 202 500rd bricks in stock (at the time of compilation of this data). Otherwise, ammo prices seem to be holding pretty constant. We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will continue this [Read More…]

Week 29. I hope you didn’t miss the break last week too much. I was out of pocket, enjoying Lake Bridgeport in Texas, without internet. It doesn’t look like the prices of ammo collapsed or skyrocketed in my absence. I did find some .22LR for $0.07/rd, but [Read More…]

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 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…]

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…]

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…]

Week 18. There was basically an even amount of price increases vs. price decreases across all of the vectors, so no real movement or spikes that are noteworthy. Ammoman has free shipping and it looks like some of the 7.62x39mm from SWVA Arms also qualifies. We do [Read More…]

Week 17. So, it appears that prices are generally moving a bit up. We have more vendors that have increased prices on calibers than have lowered. .223 Rem and .308 Win have taken the brunt of the increases. The Armory contacted me and wanted me to let everyone know that [Read More…]

As many of us have noted, ammo prices are pretty stable overall. .22LR is still overpriced. .380 ACP is actually trending down. And most dealers are pretty close in price to one another for a given caliber and lot size. There are some vendors that have generally lower [Read More…]
