Ammo Prices: 8/15/2014

    Week 20.

    So some of the tweaking did pull in some odd results, and I obviously did not check every link (1000 rd tumbler, etc…). I went a little more conservative with the data this week and spot checked a lot more. My overall goal is to add more data points so the quarterly summary is more “interesting” (and to hopefully normalize more across the data set).

    Next week (if I can bend the content management software to my will) I will try to incorporate sparkline graphs for each of the rounds.

    Also I would like to kill 300 BLK from the harvest. I’ll continue with it through the next summary, but unless we (and by we, I mean you 300 BLK lovers) can come up with some more bulk vendors I’m going to sunset it. We are just not going to get anything meaningful from 3 data points per week. That said, what would you readers like to see as a replacement round to start including for trending? Let us know in the comments below!

    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 – 20140814

    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.
