My friend that owns Benton Shooters told me ammo was going up after the first of the year by 40%. This was of course back in November and he was right. I went to The Sportsmans Warehouse in Chattanooga the other day and a guy was sitting in the floor repricing all their bullets. The 110gr .25 cal Accubonds went from $21.50 to $21.99 for 50. Midway has the .25 cal 110 Hornady Interbonds priced at over $60.00 for 100. Reloading is getting expensive as well.

Thank goodness I reload!

Went today,needed somemore .223's $39.00 a box,went right down the road to Dicks same thing $22.00. Remington SPS Varmint,Gander $560,Dicks $509. You could walk between these stores. Do they have a clue?

If you reload, why would you care what the ammo cost? I hope that you found the components that you need at Dick's because at the one in Jackson, they don't carry them. I bought a box of hornady interlock .270 bullets yesterday for $27.99( $30.72, including state and local tax), at Gander. Cabelas charges $21.99 for the same bullets but add $4.95 postage for a total of $26.94. Midwayusa's price is $20.99. But then add their $3.00 "special handling" charge and the cheapest alternative of getting the order from Columbia,MO to Jackson,Tn,$9.19, UPS Ground and their total becomes $33.18. So, scrath Midway and then Cabelas is $3.78 cheaper. For that kinda change, I go to Gander and get what I want when I want it, not several days later. Like I said, if you don't like anyone's price, then buy it elsewhere. But, I'm not gonna drive all over West Tennesse or wait several days just to "save" a nickel.

That's the way free enterprise is supposed to operate. Nobody "has to" buy from anyone. You have to compete, or you wont stay in business. However, I like the convenience of having a national outdoor store in my town. But, that fact doesn't "force" me to buy from them. lol

Good points, 4onaside.

Since the Knoxville Gander Mountain is close to my Knoxville office, I have come to appreciate having it around, more and more, in large part due to it's convenience. But also because the salespeople there have been attentive and helpful, something I have not experienced at either the Knoxville Dick's or the Knoxville Bass Pro.

Gramps, overall, I've found Gander Mountain's prices (in Knoxville area) to be in the same ballpark as the Bass Pro on the other side of town. And overall, Gander Mountain sure has a lot more hunting & fishing items than the nearby Dick's. All of the above sure beat the stink out of Wal-mart, which is cheaper, like in really cheap and in like seldom having anything I want.

Now if we could just get a CABELA'S somewhere, anywhere in Tennessee!!! That would be worth the drive for all.

Don't know about any connection between Gander and Cabela's but they were a catalog company several years ago, and a very good one I might add. I ordered many items from them. However, maybe they were too good, as I believe that they went thru a bankruptcy. lol Possibly, that's why they are trying to price their merchandise in their retail outlets, to make sure that there is no repeat of their past history.
