When I got up this morning, there was a notification on my tablet to this story,


Maybe come Spring, things will become more plentiful, but for now one lucky gun club is going to be flush.

Ditto on the back orders. My local club has had shells on order for two months. I believe they also have trouble getting White Flyer targets. -Ed

Our 4-H program received our 120 case order from Federal within 2 weeks. I know its not 1,000 cases, but I thought it would take longer than 2 weeks to receive. $53 per case.

$55 is a great price today...in 1972 dollars that is $8.80 per flat or 88 cents per box in 1972

It takes $6.25 dollars today to buy what $1 did in 1972

I’m up to 10,000 rounds in new flats of AA’s.... I’m good for a while, and I’m still buying, but I do hope things ease up in the next couple of months, especially for handgun ammo.

I’m sure that’s wholesale or club price, not retail price to the shooter that actually uses it.
I was a dealer for many years and my dealer cost was usually more than Walmart was selling their ammo for. I could not afford to buy 1000's of cases at a time or even 100's of every brand and size of every shot at one time like them. It was the same with the guns that they carried in stock.

That's a good reason to reload and I noticed the price of used re loaders is up
Would you believe that I have a pre-82 selling on eBay now for $152.50 and three days left to go in the auction? A new Mark 5 is a shade over $200. I don’t understand it but I’m pretty happy about it.

I filled up a VW in 1972 and could drive 300 miles, I also made $ 2.25 cents per hour. Can't you just hear those millennials whining.
