I was at an auction on sat. Night. Saw 1000 rounds of 40 grain federal round nose .22 LR sell for $210.00. After tax and auction fee the final price would be $ 253.52.........

I have all the .22 ammo anyone wants for those prices... I'm speechless....

It's everything and everywhere.

Bulkammo has 30 420-round cans of 5.56 XM855 in stock. This is the same ammo that WalMart was selling for $149 last spring.

Today's price? $420.

No thanks.

This may be a dumb question, but why are .22 lr ammo prices so crazy?

Thats a good ? Gramps. I was at Final Flite saturday, and the young fella behind the counter was answering the fone, I heard him tell whom ever he was talking to that no they didn't have 223 rounds and no we don't have any 22 rounds other than 22 shorts.

After he hung up the fone I talked to him a while.Ased him what the going price on the regular 525 bricks in a federal or remington 22 rounds went for know and he said $50, and it just blew me away, and he then said and we can't even keep them at that price! \:o

I guess the 4 bricks I have will have to hold me for a while, just to think when I gave 14.99 for those I raised all kinda hill because I thought that was outragous,

Oh yea. Don't look for prices to come down anytime soon.

Today Obama STARTS his ANTI-GUN CAMPAIGN across the country starting in Minneapolis.

He's pushing the country to get behind him and pass his SEVERAL DIFFERENT anti-gun bills though Congress.

people are making a lot of money including gun manufactureres/sellers, ammo makers/sellers and the NRA.

Kind of like milk and bread when snow is coming.....or gas shortages or cabbage patch dolls........lol.

Weren't gun sales and NRA memberships way down before this happened?????

hmmm???????

best business move ever is to convince people how much they need something and then tell them there will be a shortage.....


the very last thing that gun makers and the NRA wants is NO gun laws and no threat against the 2nd amendment.......

looks like the country to this bait hook, line and sinker....

What rock you been living under??? Everything was going fine until your wonderful president went to Sandy Hook and made a speech saying he was going to do everything in his power to prevent this from ever happening again...[censored] are law abiding gun owners supposed to think? It had nothing to do with business...it was an idiot that thinks he is above the 2nd amendment that caused this buying spree...get some while you can, it may be gone tomorrow.

Barry Obama...gun and ammo salesman of the decade. LoL

NO, Obama was the "Gun salesman of the year" in 2008 though 2009.

There were RECORD sales in firearms across the country. Since Dec 2012 that record has been broken.


So NO gun sales and the NRA was NOT "way down before this happened".

You did get one single thing right here.

"looks like the country to this bait hook, line and sinker" That's YOU, you believe Obama and fell for it hook, line and sinker, lol!!!!

To blame the NRA and the gun manufactureres/sellers, ammo makers/sellers and LAW ABIDING AMERICAN CITIZENS THAT OWN FIREARMS is not right and somethign there is wrong.


The one single person responsible for this price/supply is OBAMA!!

President Barack Obama launched the biggest U.S. gun-control push in generations on Wednesday

Ya if the gun/ammo manufacturers had been part in this they would have ramped up the supply so they could make more.
