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.

    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.
