    Thats no bargain.... but not terrible in my experience. My local wally-world runs the cheap stuff at $5.29+tax per 20 rounds whereas the local Dunhams wants $9.99+tax per 20rounds for Wolf.

    That works out to $6.90 per 20. It has been quite a while since I've seen it for $3.45 per 20. So yeah, if you go back a few years, you could say it has doubled. It works out to be $0.345 per round, and if you get on gunbot, you will see lots of bulk x39 for $0.35-$0.40. Bulk .223/5.56 is going for over twice that. I don't think there's anything to complain about here.

    The bargain now is still the .22 LRs bulk . 500 rds for $70 . Nothing is cheap for the most part. Im glad i have enough to keep me calm in these difficult times. The panickers are those who didnt do nothing when the going was good.

    Hit a few Wallys, box stores and LGS's yesterday while shopping for a new scope. Wally had the cheapest 7.62x39, $5.40 (bought my 3 boxes and moved on). Highest was Wolf for $19.99 (not going back there anytime soon). Couple of shops were ~$6 per 20 of Russian steel cased. All but Wally and the box stores had several cases.

    None had .223 except one LGS had it for $9.99 per 20 for steel and $1 each for brass. Didn't need .223 so I moved on.

    Nobody had .22 LR left, none, nada, nothing. All sales staff told me they get cleaned out as soon as the doors open.

    Nothing will remain normal as long as these anti 2A attacks keep coming. This is a phenomenon in American gun society for a good while now. The ups and downs when our rights are disturbed. I think it will only get worse as more people are hoarding even in better times.

    7.62x39 prices should be the least of your concerns...it stayed the most reasonable during these unreasonable times.

    The most unreasonable is the price of 5.56. It has reached record high of $1 a round. Its like hunting ammo , a 20 rd box of Winchester Super X 3006 is $20. Nothing is getting cheap in times like this. The best way not to get hosed is not to buy. Save your pennies for better times.
