    It will be just like it was with Obama. I hope, people buying it all up and it will change back to the way it was unless they changed our gun laws. We shall see, I still have most of what I hoarded during Obama.

    Last time I bought 1000 9mm I paid $200 after shipping for boxer primed brass 124 grain fmj but it's probably been 5 years ago.

    Not sure why prices are leveling off ,,9mm is about 55/60 cents a round ,,45acp 80 cents to a buck ,,223/5.56 65/70 cents a round ,,and 7.62x39 was the best pricing at 40/45 cents ,,now thats my numbers from pricing on GB today the 6th of Dec. using 1000 and 500 round batches ,,,,,,,,,,,,,I been looking every day at the numbers 2 weeks ago was the craziest with prices hitting 1000.00 for 1000 rounds anything hollow point and 7/900 for about everything else ,,except 7.62x39 never seen that go over 500. tops

    If folks did not learn from the past two shortages and crazy prices and stock up while ammo was cheap, then it is too bad for them. However, I do feel for all the new gun owners who can't buy ammo to learn to safely shoot their new gun.

    I have more ammo than I will shoot in my lifetime, absent a Zombie Apocalypse. Hell, when I saw the crazy prices of late, I considered selling some. Then again, Nah.

    Ammo prices are killing me but, I am more aggravated at the shipping charges.
    How does a case of 12 gauge 3.5 inch shells have a cost of 25.00 for shipping, yet, the same seller is charging 40.00 shipping for a case of 16 gauge 2.75 inch?
    Some idiot bid 215.00 for a case of 16 gauge #6 shot... after shipping, that's 25.50 a box!!!

    Another guy is charging 35.00 shipping for 100 rounds of .45acp...

    Ammo will go for whatever people are willing to pay for. I spoke with my LGS owner the other day and he said people have been asking him if $700 for Wolf 9mm, 1000ct, is a good price.

    When he says no, they still buy it because someone will. No one is going to drop the prices of ammo with the sellers market that's going on right now. I'm glad I have some stocked for the calibers I shoot the most. Hell, I was thinking of selling some of the 9mm since I don't shoot it and buying another revolver...

    Last fall ammunition was the cheapest that it had ever been.

    A case was about $150 shipped (brass) and $130 for steel case.

    I never saw it that Low, ever.

    Needless to say, I have a lot.

    First time I havent been able to go to academy or walmart and not buy what I want. First time Ive been to the Academy here in college station and seen the gun cupboards bare. Seems different than droughts in the past.
