Still way over priced. I don’t pay middleman rip off prices for ammo!

I suspect that the greatest part of price increases is by the middlemen, whether they be gun shops, online sellers or individuals buying and re-selling online and elsewhere. Yes, costs of raw materials have risen, but nowhere near the percentage as retail prices. While I favor Buy American when possible and not at outrageous cost disadvantage, I think that ammo manufacturers in Western and Eastern Europe and in South America are seizing on the opportunity to ship more product here. 30 years ago I hadn’t heard of Italian Fiocchi, but now I like the stuff. For range time or amateur… Read more »

Remington, et al count on our short memories. But I, for one remember Remington’s prices going up BEFORE they were forced to use higher priced raw materials.

I wonder if Remington remembers that?

And, don’t look for prices to ever come back down to anything near what they were, right before they skyrocketed. Remington will not let that happen.

So what do we do? Do less. Practice round counts have always been artificially inflated, cuz it’s fun. But, accuracy can be developed with fewer rounds.

If you miss the noise, buy freakin’ fireworks.

All ammo has gone up with the cost of primers, powder, and brass [copper].

When I can walk into a Walmart SUPER CENTER and purchase Ammo again I’ll know that Ammo is available to anyone who wants to buy it! Went to a gun show last weekend, a light Ammo supply was there but pricing was what I would over the top, like being fleeced or a shakedown, sorry to say without trying to resupply my Ammo supply!!!!!!! The market of supply and demand is the fact that new gun owners are paying these insane prices, and they have a mental block as to being gouged, as far as price!!!!! Think of it this… Read more »

you couldnt be more right! on top of the fact the new gun owners dont know any better on ammo prices they are having the fear of GOD thrown at them with whats going on in our country right now! They all think the end is near and feel they need the ammo no matter the cost. Iv been stocking up for years now so i dont have any concerns when it comes to the common rounds. But i did just buy a 45-70 and a 6.5Grendel and other then steel ammop i cant find any Grendel and 45-70 is… Read more »

Walmart has mostly empty shelves for all goods. Costs go up with the cost of fuel for transport of goods. You have no argument about “new gun owners.” ALL are paying extra and will as long as the ammo production capacity remains the same. That Remington brand is back in the game with their own means of production is a great plus

If manufactures don’t want to be blamed for these price increases they should mark each box with their cost and /or the price sold to retailers

Retailers would not buy them, but neither producers nor retailers are responsible. The Beijing Biden Crime family is responsible for increased costs of materials and labor. You did not live through the late 1970s and early 1980s, did you.

That’s all fine and dandy but why is the cost of ammo, which is now allegedly available, anywhere from 3 to 4 times the price it was 14-15 months ago. Who is making the exorbitant profits: the manufacturers, the distributors, or the retailers. Or, what is more likely, all of them. I’ll offer an opinion that at least a major fault lies with purchasers who are willing to pay those prices. If every shooter who has at least 50 rounds in stock stopped buying this stuff at current prices the glut on the market would bring prices back to normal.… Read more »

Cost of raw materials is big factor, brass ( zinc and bronze) Lead, (which is not processed in American anymore, thank you EPA) and copper plus powder increased labor costs. When 9mm was 21 cents a round do you think they were giving it away? no, they were making about the same percentage as they are now.

Does this mean we going to stop being gouged on price? Probably not.

manufacturer’s prices for loaded ammo have only increased an average of 15-20%, any gouging is coming downstream.

15-20% increase from WHEN? From the 20 cents/rd for 9mm from a year ago? Or from the 60 cents/rd from last month?

It means you will pay the costs of inflation, but availability will go way up in the brick and mortar stores.

I’ll agree when I see it on the shelf in my neck of the woods but none so far.
