What are you guys seeing for prices on some ammo at the moment?

9mm -
12ga
223/556


I have not purchased any lately as I was waiting for it to pass but it seems I might need to just keep buying. I have few hundred rounds of 9mm but no 12ga and little 223.

Any input/info/links are appreciated.

From what I'm hearing, best to buy what you can get your hands on

If you are looking online

9mm is mostly 50 cents per round in stock $25 a box (usually for steel case) and goes up from there
but
I keep seeing random deals if you happen to be fast enough at Bass Pro for 26-27 cents per round (brass)

223 is pretty close to 60 cents a round for steel case and goes up from there
you can occasionally find a deal in the 40 cent per round range, but again you have to be watching for it and be quick to purchase

12 gauge, too many options to nail down a price, it is higher than last year, but no where near as ridiculous as 9mm or 223

6.5 creedmoor and 308 have all skyrocketed too.

I bought FGMM 308 168gr back in March at 90 cents a round shipped, its now $1.25 a round plus shipping **IF** you can find it anywhere :(


Many people say to just wonder through all your local stores that sell ammo as prices are better than online. I have not tried that yet.

Keep and eye on NatchezSS (one of the few to avoid bots set up by those skulking ammoseek). Also, Sig has been consistent in pricing w no gouging. They’ve been cheaper on 9mm than most here lately. Go to those sites and set up alerts to email. I’ve gotten some fairly decent hauls on 9mm and 300aac from there. They ship fast too. They have a slot for “blemished” rounds on their site they mark down fairly low too. Cosmetic blemish, but idk I’ve not gotten those before. If you can beat the bots on BassPro, Cabelas, Red River reloads, then they’ve got some nice deals here and there. I’ve seen 5.56 WWB 1000rd case at 37 cents a round within the last 2 weeks. If you’re desperate and need it now, SGammo is usually stocked w 5.56, .223 but you’ll pay 60 cents per. Good luck!

I’ve been watching and amazed at how much you can spend on a box now days.

6 months ago a box of 9mm was 10 bucks.

I just picked up 9mm from Sig. .34-.38 cents per round was reasonable and free shipping was a plus.

Ended up ordering 200 rounds of 9mm at ammo mart. 136.xx shipped

Purchased 12g ammo locally and 100 rounds of 223 for 65 locally.

not to bad but 9mm is hard to find.
