Ammo Prices: 06/27/2014

    Week 14!

    In case you missed it last week, we published the rollup summary for the last 13 weeks of data. You can review it at: https://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2014/06/20/ammo-prices-summary-03282014-06202104

    As many of us have noted, ammo prices are pretty stable overall. .22LR is still overpriced. .380 ACP is actually trending down. And most dealers are pretty close in price to one another for a given caliber and lot size. There are some vendors that have generally lower prices and some that have generally higher prices (but our data does not account for relative quality, nor for shipping). Despite a number of events involving the inappropriate use of firearms, people are not running out and stockpiling (at least not to the point that we are seeing any supply/demand issues)–and that even includes recent statements by elected officials rattling the “gun control” saber again.

    If you enjoy shooting as I would surmise many of us here do, buy ammo when it is cheap and plentiful. Not just when there is fear of low supply. And with all that extra ammo you are buying, take a family member (or friend) out to the range and help pass on good skills and stewardship related to that part of our national heritage.

    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 – 2014-06-27

    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.
