Ammo Prices: 03/20/2015 (Updated: Fixed)

    Steve says: Sorry y’all, this is a few days late, my fault not Tom’s.

    Week 45.

    .223 Rem seems to be stabilizing after the scare–a short term run that didn’t really tax manufacturing capabilities. What seemed a little more odd this week is that .22LR is creeping up again. Most places are $0.12/rd and greater (which is silly). Other prices and calibers seem to be generally holding prices and availability.

    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.
