I saw that too. It was $99 just two weeks ago bang
It appears that basic .223 and 5.56 ammo has gone from %.50 a round to $.60 a round.

And that's still cheap.

I wouldn't hand-load any for sale at that price. Depending on bullet, I would have more in parts than $0.60 per round.

it'll get cheaper if we all stop buying it...supply and demand, ammo companies are raising the price because we continue to purchase...if we all stopped buying ammo for a month, watch what would happen.

Nothing would happen. Vista has a 1 year/1billion dollar backlog.

Lewisville Academy had a bunch of .556, .223, and some 12GA yesterday afternoon. I would get 2 more boxes each of 30-06, .308, and .243 if I could find it for close to the normal price and then I am good for a long long time.

I agree with Mike. Everyone please stop buying ammo. Especially around the Arlington area, just this weekend. I'll let you know Sunday night if we are all good.
