    Anyone on other fora and following ammo prices in the US.

    I know when elections come around folks go crazy hoarding and all that but ammo prices seem to have increased no end.

    .22 RF ammo is as scarce as hens teeth in some states and the prices are stupid stupid crazy.

    Every election cycle.
    Same with MSR completes and parts sets, handguns, magazines etc.

    All predicting another piece of legislation coming out restricting them/their purchase.

    Never forget, the end goal is zero firearms of any type.

    S.I. No. 187/1972 - Firearms (Temporary Custody) Order - Firearms seized

    Criminal Justice (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009 - Firearms banned & grandfathered

    S.I. No. 420/2019 - Magazine ban

    Something like 7 million new gun owners in the US in the last 12 months. So that's a lot of extra ammo being bought.

    There are a lot of good Ammo manufacturers based out of Europe, so I wouldnt worry.

    CCI and Remington along with a few others might be an issue if your after specific types, but still plenty of others to choose from

    I think posted last week, .410 shotgun ammo, which wouldn't be particularly sought after or in big demand, was selling for 35-40 dollars for a box of 25.


    I was watching this earlier, you can see some of the ammo prices.

    Apart from when the Don was in power. There was a 3 year "Trump slump" in the arms and ammo business....Strange that...With the pandemic. Gun banning Biden with now over a half dozen anti-gun ownership bills either in the House or being proposed,and people hoarding ammo and grifting the prices and availability are what they are. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NzZgGChsyDI

    I’m seeing a lot of reports of deliveries arriving at stores being bought up by fellas waiting at the doors, who then sell it on gunbroker or at shows.

    Free market is a bitch sometimes.
