Ammo Prices: 03/12/2015

    Week 44.

    .223 Rem is a little north of $0.30/rd at most places (which is consistent with the average over the last nine months). Availability seems to be a little lower, though. Other prices and calibers seem to be generally holding prices and availability.

    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.
