GunBroker has just sold a flat of Federal Gold Medals for $250 shipped.

https://www.gunbroker.com/item/889172727

and I have a local seller offering .22 shells for 25 cents each.

https://theeclassifieds.com/Home/ViewListing/179d4d0b-0b06-4621-8595-acae016f3b68

There is no natural disaster or crisis that can really be defined, just an election year.

What do you guys think? Would you pay a quarter for a .22 shell? Would you sell them for a quarter?

How about $250 for a flat of shells?
I pray the buyer of the $250. flat doesn’t know something more than we do about the future.

Depends on your perspective. Nobody is making anyone buy ammo or components at those prices especially on GB.
Stores don't only have to look at what they paid for a product, but what the replacement stock is going to cost.

Right now it's a sellers market. Shortages always drive prices, if the last year and toilet paper didn't teach us anything else it should have taught you to be prepared for the things you really need. I'm sitting on enough reloading components to last a couple of years at a moderate shooting pace both shotgun and pistol, but it was accumulated during reasonable prices. I'm not in a hurry to go back to weekly handgun shooting until this settles out some, but I still shoot enough to be competent with my 2 EDC handguns.

Its only gouging if people are actually buying. Otherwise your just an idiot seller asking a rediculous amount.

My local gun shop told me about a great deal he had on .223 and had a few AR's come in. A case of 1000 for $750 + tax. $.75 a round for junk .223? No thank you........

My impulsive purchase this summer was new reloading equipment to replace the reloading equipment I sold a few years ago, maybe it wasn't impulsive after all. Ok the Perazzi MX-2000 I picked up this summer was impulsive :)

On a local forum 1 gentleman was selling 22's @ 32 cents each. I wanted to reach into the screen and slap him.

Top Guns actual bids are up to $250 shipped, still has almost two days left.

I’m tempted to put a flat of AAs on there, starting at one cent and see what happens.
Flat of STS 7.5 or 8 ought to raise a bid or two.

I think the whole thing is rigged. It wouldn't surprise me if there were hundreds of bots selling/bidding on these online auctions to add fuel to the fire. I saw 6.5 Grendel bringing $2.00 + a round on Gunbroker.

Tron's got it. The seller can ask $500 a flat and $300 a brick if they want. If you want it you will elect to pay their price...... if you think it is a ridiculous price than hopefully you do not buy it and price shop other alternatives. At those prices.......I myself would take a break from shooting and would remodel the bathroom. Imagine how happy your wife would be!
I think a lot of these sky high price sellers (hoarders) really don't want to sell their product as much as throw out a wild price and see if someone will bite on it.
