Ammo Prices: 4/18/2014

    Fourth week of prices. My intention was to generate trending graphs this week, but as I started playing with the data I realized this post would become hideously huge.

    So what I would like the reader base to do is to determine what graphs/trends would be most useful and/or interesting. As of right now we are tracking 42 vendors, 9 calibers, and 2 lot sizes. Against those 3 vectors, we have the prices by date.

    We could do average price per round per caliber by vendor. Or trend lines of prices by lot size by caliber by vendor. Really anything using the aforementioned vectors.

    So, what do you want to see? Post your requests in the comments (if what you want is already there, please “up vote” it rather than duplicate it). I will start with the 2 most popular ideas next week and see how that goes.

    We have also included the raw data so you can run your own trends: WeeklyAmmoPrices20140418.csv

    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 teaches wilderness medicine and writes for a number of publications, including The Prepared, a site devoted to self-preparedness. 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.
