Ammo Prices: 08/29/2014

Week 22. Looks like Fiocchi is putting out 300BLK to distributors now–there are several vendors with some. And 22LR is even more “stupid” expensive. Did something happen recently that depleted the stock? .223 Rem is all over the board this week. Brass [Read More…]

Week 21. What other calibers would you like to see starting next quarter? So far there have been requests for: 6.8 SPC and 38 Special? Vote for your favorites in the comments. Also, I should be bringing back Freedom Munitions (as well as a couple of others) into the [Read More…]

Week 20. So some of the tweaking did pull in some odd results, and I obviously did not check every link (1000 rd tumbler, etc…). I went a little more conservative with the data this week and spot checked a lot more. My overall goal is to add more data points so [Read More…]

Week 19. We have added a whole bunch of new vendors and adjusted the process a bit. If you notice anything strange please let us know in the comments. Hopefully the tweaks have not impacted the overall data. We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 08/01/2014

Week 18. There was basically an even amount of price increases vs. price decreases across all of the vectors, so no real movement or spikes that are noteworthy. Ammoman has free shipping and it looks like some of the 7.62x39mm from SWVA Arms also qualifies. We do [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 07/25/2014

Week 17. So, it appears that prices are generally moving a bit up. We have more vendors that have increased prices on calibers than have lowered. .223 Rem and .308 Win have taken the brunt of the increases. The Armory contacted me and wanted me to let everyone know that [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 07/18/2014

Week 16. A couple of the vendors contacted me today and wanted to pass on that they are seeing a run on ammo right now, likely due to the sanctions that were recently announced. Also given some of the other world events within the past couple of days we may see some [Read More…]

Week 15 (of data). I took last week off to celebrate the 4th with my family–I hope this didn’t impact your thirst for data trending… I think I’ve found a somewhat reliable way to flag entries if they are free of shipping costs, but it is going to [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 06/27/2014

As many of us have noted, ammo prices are pretty stable overall. .22LR is still overpriced. .380 ACP is actually trending down. And most dealers are pretty close in price to one another for a given caliber and lot size. There are some vendors that have generally lower [Read More…]

12th week. Next week I will do an additional post just breaking down the metrics with some graphs and stats. If there are specific metrics you would like to see, please leave a comment. While 23 vendors increased prices on some calibers, more than 2.5x as many reduced [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 06/06/2014

11th week! Welcome to The Armory! One of you readers suggested it, and it looks like they are the clear winner for the week in terms of lowest priced ammo in almost all categories (sans shipping of course). We do appreciate the support and constructive comments and will [Read More…]

Week 10. My apologies for last week’s issue with the table headers. The problem is related to some annoyances with the content management software–basically it strips out some of the attributes I put in the headers for styling and analytics. If I don’t [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 05/23/2014

Week nine! I know looking at all this data is just too much work for some of you :), so this week’s new feature is a summary table of the best prices by lot sizes for caliber. The vendor’s name is linked to the ammo page. It looks like LAX Ammunition is [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 05/16/2014

Week eight! Interesting to note that this week, bulk pistol ammo is trending down from previous prices at vendors. Only a couple of vendors have increased. SG Ammo is showing the lowest of the week for 3 types of rifle ammo (in 500 round lots). Bang It Ammo is showing [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 05/09/2014

Seventh week! Again, there are a lot more vendors selling .22LR this week. Most are still at $0.13/rd (or less; which I realize is still hideous). You 300 BLK people need to get some more vendors on board–that stuff is sparse in bulk. I may get the opportunity to [Read More…]

Ammo Prices: 5/02/2014

Sixth week! So, I’m not sure why but The Sportsman Guide has 500rds of .380 ACP for less than half of the other vendors with availability. It *is* Wolf, but still… Also, there are a lot more vendors selling .22LR this week. Prices are still a bit [Read More…]

Week 5 ammo prices. Last week a number of you readers took the raw data and ran with it, generating some pretty cool graphs and showing some interesting analytics. Also this week, by popular demand, I have included basic trending by vendor by caliber by lot size, kind [Read More…]

Third week of ammo prices! Next week we should have enough data to start generating and showing some trends and graphs from the various vendors. We have also added a new vendor-Target Sports USA-which currently has the cheapest price on 1000 round lots of .45 ACP. [Read More…]

Please enjoy our second week of posting ammo prices compiled from across the web. We have included 300 AAC BLK per the request of a number of you in the comments from last week. We have also added a couple of new vendors. After a couple of more weeks collecting data, we [Read More…]

Ruger 10/22 50th Anniversary Model

To celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Ruger 1/22 (1964-2014), Ruger ran a competition to see who could design the best 50th Anniversary Ruger 10/22 model. The winner was Gary from Michigan (whom I know is a reader of TFB, as was one of the Runners Up, Chris from TN). [Read More…]
