Ammo Prices: 03/06/2015

Week 43.

Well, .223 Rem appears to be running low–at least the number of vendors (of the ones I’ve been following) don’t have the stock they did. A number of the vendors aren’t even listing it. Woohoo for all of the panic buyers. I imagine that stock will take a few months to catch back up to pre BATFE letter levels… Looking back at the previous weeks of data it appears that world events (like the invasion of the Ukraine) don’t affect ammo prices–speculation about what a US Government agency is considering, however, does…

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 – 20150306

    Is there any chance of adding 10mm to the pistol ammo tracking list as finding it for less than a buck a round is often sketchy at best.

  • Mike Price Mike Price on Mar 09, 2015

    What gets me, people are paying .80 cents a round for ammo that isn't even banned and if you check gunbroker you can still buy AK steel core, an ammo that has been banned for 20 years for .50 cents a round and no bids on it. That is real steel core ammo too. Are you to going Plinking with .80 cents a round ammo? Most ranges won't let you shoot steel core ammo so where are you going to shoot it? Bunch of hoopla for nothing. Regular AK ammo has more punch than M855 ammo. And for .23 cents a round too.
