Today that same supermarket chain exists and for the same job they pay about 7 times as much. Interestingly 22 LR ammo is about 7 times as much "today" too, but in 2017- 2019 22LR could be purchased at almost half that amount. I bought a lot ot Federal American Eagle 9MM 124 and 147 for $7 a box of 50 after Federal 25 percent off rebate when buying by the case in 2017 - 2018. Those where great times to buy cheap and stack it deep, maybe the best of times ever. I don't think we will ever see prices like that again for ammo or primers but I hope I am wrong. There are so many variables working against ammo prices going down much further now and I am not sure they will abate any time soon if ever.
