Well, there's a bright side to everything. I never thought I'd see the day when 7.62x38 Nagant was the cheapest-per-round ammo they had in stock ... :rolleyes:

I ordered 1000 rounds of Fiocchi 223 55 gr fmj back on 12-25-12 for $369. Got an e-mail from MidwayUSA today saying it had shipped, same price! I had forgotten about it!! :eek:

Have you never used gunbot (http://gunbot.net/ammo/)? There's lots of ammo available online, not just at Midway. Prices are still high, but ammo is available. Reloading components? Not so much (http://gunbot.net/reloading-supplies).

I've gotten a few alerts from Midway in the last few days that they have ammo in stock. But by the time I get there, even if it's in a couple of minutes, it shows out f stock.

Midway can keep their greatly over priced ammunition. When this ammunition crisis is over i will still refuse to order anything from Midway.

Over priced ammo. Guess I won't be doing any shooting this month either.

Looks to me about like market pricing right now. Do you have any idea of their cost? Chances are that dealer costs are higher now, also. Producers cannot add plant, or shifts, and still produce at the same cost as they did before increasing output. In Econ 101 this is called "the law of diminishing marginal returns (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diminishing_returns)." Many people believe that as output increases, cost declines. But that is true only in select industries, and I am reasonably certain ammo production is not a "declining cost industry." So anyone who is waiting for ammo prices to fall to where they were before the current surge in demand is likely to never buy again.

Most of that stuff was match grade.

Gunbot works some of the time, but now always. Mostly they have "false positives", that is telling you that ammo is available but really isn't. The best bet is to make up a list of ammo dealers who haven't unfairly jacked up prices. Then actually go to their websites and look to see what they have. There may be more reputable dealers, but I have 7 companies on my list that appear to be fair about things. If you really want the ammo, it's what you have to do.

In an environment where one can raise prices like we are in now your statement on diminishing returns does not apply.

"In an environment where one can raise prices like we are in now your statement on diminishing returns does not apply."

Diminishing returns is exactly what we are seeing. Some people claim that the govt is buying ammo to dry up the supply. If that is the case then why is .22 ammo so high? Wasn't aware the govt had ANY weapons using .22. People who think that ammo will return to prices of 6 mos ago are not thinking clearly. Companies are charging more for their product, raw materials are more costly, and the government is printing money at an inflationary rate. If you really think you're going to see $2 and $3 per box .22, then go out to California and smoke some of that funny stuff with the governor.

Lead is down in price about 9-10% from a few months ago.

You are certainly correct that in short run, some of the price run up we've seen ("gouging") was driven entirely by demand, not by a rising marginal cost. But as that short run dissipates, and we see supply come on line that was produced at a higher cost, then diminishing returns will most certainly keep prices from falling back to their pre-panic lows. With the widespread availability of ammo now reported by gunbot (whatever its faults or limitations), I think we are now moving from beyond the short-term, and that the supply coming on line is being priced higher because of diminishing returns. Time will tell.
