    I like hard evidence so I can justify the credit card use to my Mrs.

    She's not unreasonable, but she requires hard data--thanks.

    Yuck, even components are going up.

    Any word on powder and primers from some of the other companies?

    Yes. The Remington and Winchester letter looked like the same person wrote them...

    I always stick with Wolf for plinking (I'm cheap) anyways, but this will definitely make practicing with carry ammo and shooting .22 more expensive :(

    Those are pretty big increases.

    For easy reference:

    Cast bullets have really made a big jump since last month at both Midway and Cabelas. Haven't checked brass yet but would bet it's up more too. Kinda rough on us poorer shooters.:(

    It has never been cheap. I used to shoot a lot of home cast .30 caliber bullets over efficent powders. One hundred rounds of common brass ( '06, .308 ) will last You a long time. Don't give up the ship! Essex

    You can thank the war for this. Simple supply and demand. Problem is, even after the war goes away, the cost increase won't. By that time we will have sucked up the cost and demand will resume.

    Weak dollar = higher prices on imports.

    You get screwed no matter which way you turn. Thankfully wages are rising just as fast, right...?

    If I turn in an old car battery for lead, will they give me a discount?

    lol.. you guys dont knw what expensive hobbies are if you think this is "big bucks"... its nothing. If you cant justify it, reload..if you cant justify that, do something else.

    Well that got me to order another 400 rounds. It's still cheaper than skiing.
