I received the following note from frequent contributor D. –
Various calibers of ammunition are now starting to make an appearance on the marketplace. (Natchez Shooters Supply, Midway USA, etc)
Most are still selling for 3 to 4 times the pre-panic pricing.
Unless you would like to forever pay an extortionate price for ammo, I strongly suggest, WAITING!
If you can hold off on your purchases until prices fall to below $.50 a round (in 20 round quantities) you will send a message to the manufacturers and retailers that you will not abide by such pricing.(This is still pretty high, Tracer was selling at $.50 a round before the panic)
The longer that panic buying continues, the longer that prices will remain high and the higher the eventual price will settle to.
We made these people a lot of windfall money, let them show their thanks to us by reducing prices to the pre-panic pricing levels.
The fact that ammo is finally appearing demonstrates that they are catching up to demand. Let the warehouses fill up and prices will fall.
DONT BUY OVER PRICED AMMO!
I tend to agree with D. I wonder if we will ever see “normal” prices again – especially if companies start raking in the profits selling at an inflated price – and people buy. I am guilty for buying .223/5.56 and some .22LR at these inflated costs. I bought to replace rounds used during practice – but at prices well less than some of the ridiculous prices once asked.
I have no plans to “stock up” at current prices and agree that patience will pay off in the end.
