Ammo Prices: 09/19/2014

    Week 25. Next will will be the quarterly trending and summary!

    Interesting ammo news this week too… The Brady Center announced that they will be filing a lawsuit against online ammo retailers that they claim supplied the Aurora theater shooter with ammo (among other things). It will interesting to see if that does anything to prices/availability in the next few weeks…

    Again, keep up the voting on which caliber you would like to see added next quarter. So, starting in 2 weeks will be the change to caliber. We are going to drop 300BLK and add the most requested caliber (as tallied by comments/upvotes over the past few weeks).

    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 – 20140918

    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.
