    Went to the range last night and paid $16 a box for blazer 9mm 115 grain. Also paid $26 a box for wwb 45 auto. Is this about what your seeing around you?

    I don't shoot much 45, but thought that was particularly high.

    Please refrain from the pointless "I reload", "you should have stocked up" comments. I am stocked, but won't shoot it up if ammo is available.

    I reload my .45acp but try to keep a couple boxes of factory around just in case. Last week I paid $22.50 for wwb, they also had 100 round wwb for $44.

    LGS had two boxes of independence 9mm 124 grain for $19.99 on the shelf last time I stopped by. I bought them. I don't regret it. It was the first 9mm I'd seen in a while. I plan on getting into reloading at some point, but for now, I'll grab 9mm at moderately inflated prices just to keep enough on hand to shoot my XD's from time to time.

    Just recieved Natchez catalog, and their prices even on ammo seemed to be well within reason and Midway pricing is good also.

    What ammo? LGS had no 9mm, no .22, the only .45 ACP was JHP, did not ask the price because they had a few little boxes of .30 carbine they wanted $52 for... And $40 for 20 round AR mags. :mad: Plenty of shotgun shells at normal prices.

    I just go there to shoot at their range.

    ^^^What ammo, indeed. Aside from a few 20-round boxes of critical defense, or whatever, there's no 9mm or 45acp to be had locally to me. My favorite new LGS does have Speer lawman 38 +P tmj in brass cases for 18.95, 2-per customer limit. I've been grabbing a couple of boxes of that each time I go in; prices are very much in line with pre-hyperpanic online stickers, so good on them.

    As an aside, a week ago they got a much anticipated back order of ARs in-six of them. All six went instantly, of course, but the good part is that the store stickered them at the same price they've been all year. Another LGS is running their sales the same way: guess which two stores are going to get a good portion of my town's repeat business in the future? These guys have bent way over backward to avoid gouging their consumer base, and I'm hoping it pays off for them.

    Sounds about right considering the ammo situation now. I have a few local ranges I shoot at and their white box .40 ammo is 19-21$ a box of 50 depending on where I go. It's getting so damn expensive to shoot now, SMH. And Wally World stops before range for better prices are now fruitless

    I guess we're lucky. The range I go to has all major calibers in stock. They are only selling it for their range right now. I suspect that's why they haven't run out

    Would love to be able to shoot my 9mm at the range... I got a source for some .45 ACP, but it is a bit of a drive.

    Hopefully it will get back to normal soon.

    What my LGS has he sells for the same markup from his price he always has. If you really need something specific he will do his best, but may have to use a more expensive distributor. Bought 4 bricks of federal 550 for 19.97 each from him last week. Of course he is way out in the sticks so not many people drive out there, he does most of his business on the telephone.

    The Gander Mountain nearest to me had one box left of 350 rds of 9mm 115gr blazer brass for $99

    I managed to get there just seconds before someone else who wanted to pounce on it!

    What ammo? Haven't seen any ammo beyond shotgun in Walmart for weeks now. Went to Cabelas in KC today; NO 22LR of any kind shape or color except Federal Birdshot....that's right, no bulk, no ELEY match, no Remington Subsonic, no Wolf, not even any 22shorts. No 22WMR either. They did have 9 mm and 223 mm in quantity; if you count MFS zinc-plated steel case....nothing else in both of those calibers. No 32ACP, No 380 ACP...none.

    Below is a quote off of the website of a large LGS in my area. To be fair, they've always had very competitive firearms prices, ammo not so much. Suffice to say, I haven't gone in there to seek out any ammo lately.

    "...sorry- some of our ammo wholesale cost is higher than our RETAIL price was just a few weeks ago.* We are paying higher prices in many instances just to get some popular caliber ammo to offer our customers, it's better than nothing though...* Please check on Gunbroker to see the current market prices on ammo if you don't believe us.* But hey- AT LEAST WE HAVE SOME IN STOCK!* Gander/Cabelas/Fleet Farm has target/range ammo at the "old prices"?* Good luck with that- We are getting reports that when these retailers receive and put out the small amount they may still occasionally be getting from thier own warehouses, it is gone within minutes.* Scooped up by people who run home to re-sell it on Gunbroker for 2-3x the price!"

    Well. I do stand outside of stores waiting for them to open hopeing they got some ammo in so I can get first pick when its put out on the shelf for sale. I have been lucky so far and will continue to make every effort to add ammo to my stash so I can continue to shoot my matches. Some days there is nothing available and then there are days when I get lucky.

    As far as ammo prices
    22lr... There is none anywhere at any price

    9mm... If you are lucky you may run across some in the $0.45 a round range.

    45ACP.... Easier to find than 9mm but no difference in price.

    223/5.56.... Finding it even in 100 round boxes is rare anything larger is nearly impossible. Most often if you find it its in 20 round boxes and you are limited to 1 box a day. Prices for a 20 round box can run from $8.99 to$35.

    40s&w...I found some today for $0.35 a round and bought 3 boxes which was their max purchase limit. A box here, a box there and before you know it you got yourself a nice little stash.

    45LC....And you thought 22lr was hard to find. The last box I ran across was priced at $35.99 so I grabed it right up.

    If I could find any .22lr...it'd be around $50 (500rds)

    9mm is about $21 for 50rds

    .223....fuhhhh-get-bout-it.

    Never thought I would see the day a brick of .22 LR ammunition was selling at auctions for $50 to $80 or more. Takes insanity to a whole new level.

    If we all decided not to shoot for a week or two, and not to buy anything we didn't really need, I bet some of these retailers would drop back to normal prices. As long as there are buyers "even at these prices", they will continue to raise prices, "or not lower them".
