Ammo Prices: 5/02/2014

    Sixth week!

    So, I’m not sure why but The Sportsman Guide has 500rds of .380 ACP for less than half of the other vendors with availability. It *is* Wolf, but still…

    Also, there are a lot more vendors selling .22LR this week. Prices are still a bit “gougy”, but there are some at $0.13/rd (or less; which I realize is still hideous).

    This week I added background coloring to the lowest (and highest) price per round (PPR) in a category. I’m calculating on the raw number with a higher precision (rather than a currency conversion), so you may see items with a PPR a penny apart. If in doubt just look at the overall price…

    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 – 20140502

    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.
