Ammo Prices: 06/13/2014

    12th week. Next week I will do an additional post just breaking down the metrics with some graphs and stats. If there are specific metrics you would like to see, please leave a comment.

    While 23 vendors increased prices on some calibers, more than 2.5x as many reduced prices. Many prices appear to be holding steady. So, despite current National (and World) events, ammo does not appear to be spiking.

    We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will continue this article series as long as it is productive.

    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 included the raw data so you can run your own trends: Weekly Ammo – 20140613

    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.
