Went to Gander Mountain and was looking at ammo, and low and behold, Federal 55 grain Ballistic Tips for 243 is $49.99/box!!! The 100 grain Federal Nosler Partitions are $55.00!!! This is way too expensive.

Thank goodness I reload!

Sounds like they're using gold instead of lead for bullet cores. Ouch!

More like trying to get out of the serious debt they are in by putting us in debt. Simple, can't shoot those guns without ammo.

Ammo prices have soared due to the war they claim. Reloading really wasn't a money saver before, but it sure is now!!

When they opened they had .17 for 10.99 a box I looked the other day and the same box was 16.99. I thought they had them mismarked.

I knew there had to be some reason I hadn't bothered to travel the hour's drive to Knoxville to go to Gander Mountain yet. I had heard this before about their prices. Sounds like I haven't missed much.

I wouldn't and don't doubt those prices at that place but do have to ask. Are you sure on those prices? IE Checked to see if the ammo matched the price tag on the shelf?

Half the time it doesn't is the only reason I'am asking.
