    9mm WWB at walmart has gone up again to 20 bucks from about 18.50. When will this crap subside? A box was 12.50 3 years ago.

    Does anyone here buy gasoline???:cuss:;)

    Yes, prices are going up. China is buying lots more petroleum -- and metals too, hence ammo pricers going up.
    We're all of us hurting out here -- and it ain't just bullets costing too much.

    You guys keep buying chinese products and your ammo will go out of sight. The Chinese are buying our raw materials (copper etc) and selling us back products. The prices are going to be what they want to charge cause we have given them manufacturing of our goods.

    My local walmart has been warning of a price increase ahead for a while now - reckon it finally caught up.

    Gotta get to reloading.

    It's not just China, there's a lot of factors causing price increases in everything. Do the research, don't just blame a society you don't like.

    The majority of Chinese and Indians have been peasants forever, you don't think they have the right to running water, toilets and refrigerators too?

    Put the blame where it belongs, on our stupid government and politicians.

    The Democrats and their Congress are responsible. They have done nothing to stop the increases in oil prices and have blocked drilling for decades. The same is true for ammo and many other items. We are in deep do-do with guns and ammo if Nobamo wins this election.

    Reloading 9mm is getting more economical. I think I'm reloading for $5 or $6 a box of 50 now.

    One of the main reasons for the price increases in everything is the value of the dollar. It is sinking like a rock and our Government does not care,they just print and spend more which keeps the dollar sinking even farther.

    at the local wally world, .38 special is now the same price as .45acp per hundred...29.99. .38 used to be on par with .40sw...now its more. I'm really looking into getting my reloader set up for .38 since its easy to keep brass (don't have to pick it off the floor) :)

    Oh please....
    yep.. "stagflation is gonna be with us for a while, get used to it.

    We are sending Billions of dollars in merchandise to Iraq and Afghanistan, that money will never come back. And we are borrowing to do so, so we pay interest as well. The wars are the biggest waste of money in most of the forum members lives. Too bad their grand children get stuck with the bill.

    Actualy our government is not to blame to the extent you would like.

    The truth is, just like you note, much of the world that used to just be a source for raw materials because the people in those places had little use for them themselves are now becoming major consumers.

    For almost 100 years the United States has been the primary consumer of resources in the world with a little competition from Europe and Russia.

    That is all changing now, and third and second world nations are mirroring our lifestyles and becoming major consumers themselves.
    Places that once had little use for thier own resources and were major sources for us now want not only many of thier own resources but other resources as well.

    Our local economic issues are only a minor part of it.
    Things will continue in this direction and many of the current nations that have the best quality of life will find thier average quality of life decrease significantly as thier is a lot more demand for once cheap abundant resources taken for granted.
    Good economic decisions can slow that, but they cannot stop it. Quality of life is going to drop, and continue to drop for years to come, while it raises for places it was once very low.
    There will be periods of slower drop in quality of life (the ups) and periods of faster drop in the quality of life (the downs) in the roller coaster ride for decades to come, but the general direction will be down for us.

    You are simply seeing more world equality :neener: the results of modernizing those poor third world nations.

    Let me offer a counter perspective - the best thing this country has going for it right now is the value of the dollar. It means, notwithstanding the Democrats desire to send all our jobs overseas, we are actually able to compete in world markets.

    A cheap US dollar means foreigners can afford to buy our goods and services . . . and dare I say, without customers most of us would be without jobs (which would make this forthcoming recession really scary).

    Sort of tough to blame Democrats for this one. Sure, the roots of it clearly date back to the shenanigans Clinton allowed to happen during his adminsitration (to get the economy rocking) but then, of course, the Republicans are the ones who have flitered away all of our prosperity. Democratic majority isn't real keen and doing anything to fix the situation, but its the result of complete Republican rule for 8 years that things are as bad as they are.

    We need to concentrate on throwing out every single Republican (or getting the current ones to step down and allow new uncorrupted blood to run) so that in 2 years we can return with a clean slate of Republican candidates who actually believe in what they are campaigning on.

    I agree-IF we had drilled for oil years ago and passed laws against exporting it and other raw materials --AND hammered the enviro NUTS into the ground .WE the USA would be king of the hill as to living standards -
    We should Open -Or RE-open all our Metals Mines , Dig all the coal we can get Rebuild our stel industriy [sans Overpaid unions] and Put this country back on the road to economic recovery!
    As a kid growing up in the 60s I can remember all kinds of manufacturing Jobs Almost all of them driven out By enviro protection Laws[try opening a crome plating or Magnesiun casting plant in the USA-Hint ---It aing gonna happen ever again !
    Soon you will not be able to buy American Made ammo anymore =!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
