Eleven cents per round. Wow, wow, and wow!!!! Bought two cartons of Winchester 555 for $23.00 each at Walmart last week. Think I will stick to .04 cents per round.

Don't know what gun shows yall are attending but 22's are going for $75-85 a brick/value pack in Mississippi.

I don't suppose any of you Anti-capitalists have any $15 a bag shot, or any gold you bought at $300 an ounce, that you will sell at the old prices? Didn't think so. Why should you expect ammo to be any different? It is the old tale of whose ox is being gored. In a Capitalistic society supply & demand sets the prices. The Ants probably had a fair stock or 22's that he wouldn't share with the Grasshopper too. Nobody but little children and socialists think life should be fair. Ask the former Soviets republics how that worked out for them.

Me,? I aint buying 22's at the current market value either, but then I don't have to.

Relax, you couldn't lay hands on a reasonably priced AR 6 months ago and now they are everywhere at lower prices. It's a free market and prices WILL drop back to normal, guaranteed. How long are people going to hoard .22s at .10 or 9mm at $30+ a box?

There is a difference between being a capitalist and just trying to take advantage of people in the name of capitalism.Hope he gets stuck with all his inventory for that price. Anybody who buys at this price is a fool, I just received 5,000 SK Match ammo a few days ago at the same price he wants for 25,000 price.

I guess the past two guys I paid the shipping on and GAVE them several bricks for NO CHARGE, are going to jump on this one, not.

We've been through this before. In 1994 the Brady folks, and now.

Just wait and the hoarders will probably want to unload some ammo cheap to recap some capital.

I'm gonna side with Berkowitz on this one!

IMHO.

I don’t know RogerF, I don’t know what he paid for the 22 ammo. It is irreverent.

When did it become immoral to sell something at market value? We are not talking about selling: food to the starving, vaccines to the infected, or gas to a hurricane victim. He is selling a non-essential item at current market value, actually in my area less than the market value.

The prices people are paying for 22’s, 28 gauge and .410 bore once-fired hulls are crazy. I thought the same thing when shot went to $18 a bag. At some point we reached a new “normal”. Who would have ever thought $3+ gas would be normal.

The only people buying 22’s are those who have a high enough current need and/or the scared. The same people are buying gold at $1600 and ounce.

A couple local gun shops are getting a trickle of the 50 count boxes. They are selling for around $4 a box and limiting quantities to 2 boxes. Why are they not marking it way up? Because they are thinking long term and are taking care of their loyal customers.

The last shot I bought was about 10 years ago, a ton each of Lawrence Magnum 7 ½, 8, and 9’s @ $13.50 a bag. Do I want to sell any? No. Should I decide to sell some would it be gouging to sell at the current price of $44 a bag? Unfortunately I am going to have to buy same 9’s soon as I sold some to “friends” when shot started the current climb. My thought was to replace it when it comes back down. Guess what it hasn’t.

Billetproof: I am glad that you were able to buy the ammo you wanted at a price you were willing to pay. Some folks who are lucky enough to walk in as they stocking shelves or have a contact on the inside, are still getting ammo at Walmart at “normal” prices. The issue is that the vast majority of people don’t have a source. If they want it now, they pay the current rate driven by their demand.

As to “getting stuck with inventory”, that is a risk every business faces every day. Would you like to buy 5000 very nice Mylar shipping-case labels with my old address on them?

During the Klondike gold rush salt traded at par with gold. Supply and demand.
