TFB Reader Help Needed: Historical Price Of Ammo


    Readers of The Firearm Blog, we need your help to quantitatively track the historical price of ammunition. What we’re looking for is the historical yearly data over the past 20 to 30 years of the price of these popular handgun and rifle cartridges:

    *Note that we’re more interested in the cartridge than the manufacturer.  If you have this historical data for any well-known manufacturer – as long as that manufacturer has not materially changed what goes into that cartridge & load for the past 20 to 30 years – please share.

    To find this, we’re looking for someone who has access to old print catalogues which has consistently published their prices for rounds in these two calibers.

    If you have access to this data (whether it comes from the print catalogues or other sources), please email [email protected] with the subject “Historical Ammo Prices”.  Also, please leave a comment in this post if you have other ingenious ideas about where this data could accurately be found.  Thanks for helping TFB!
