Ammo Prices: 4/25/2014

    Week 5 ammo prices. Last week a number of you readers took the raw data and ran with it, generating some pretty cool graphs and showing some interesting analytics.

    Also this week, by popular demand, I have included basic trending by vendor by caliber by lot size, kind of like a stock ticker. It will show the difference from the last time the vendor stocked that type of item, and a up (or down) trend with the price per round difference. Huge jumps could be related to a completely different brand of ammo, etc.

    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 also included the raw data so you can run your own trends: Weekly-Ammo-20140425.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.
