It’s not bad but a few years ago 500 rds was $100isg or in the $90s. I just picked up some brass case 7.62x39. It wasn’t as bad as 5.56 or 308 but it was pretty steep for range ammo.

The problem is I don't want to shoot now, as I won't be able to replenish my supply.

Itís a real issue. I have a lot of 22lr but anything else I shoot Iíd like to replace. I just got a PSAK for this reason.

Yeah, this is me. I'm not in a shortage/bind situation on anything. Sure, I'd buy more now if it were normal prices, but I do not "need" anything. That being said, I'm not in a hurry to go to the range or go crazy at our lease. I was there this past weekend with my youngest son. I let him shoot as much as he wanted of 5.56, 300 AAC, and .22lr, but I may have shot half a mag of 300 at our range, and that was it. I didn't even dump a mag of the 45 on my leg all weekend.

Maybe? Eventually I'd like to get another Ruger LCR in .22 LR and another in WMR. Shoot me a message and let me know what you have.

Ordered some .45 ACP defensive ammunition from Midway today. I’m pretty well stocked with handgun ammo now, and got most of it a year or two ago before the current run on all handgun calibers.

The replacement cost right now is just insane. Iím planning a trip to sight in my new AR builds, but dang. I will probably shoot 50 rds each and leave it at that; one each 5.56 and 7.62. Iíd love to shoot my 7.62x51 Garand and some fun things too but ammo is ridiculous now. I really hope price and demand settle down again in 2021. Iím looking to buy more silver and gold too but itís like ammo now and overpriced.

Phaux has some 7.62 x 51 he was trying to sell. No clue what he was asking but he does have it.

Pm if you need his contact info, he doesn't get on here much anymore.

Is Texas hunting forum pretty much the only place to locally buy and sell?
Armslist wants to charge now and Texas gun trader is really hard to navigate

5.56 and 9mm are about $1 a rd now when you can find it. This is ridiculous.

SG Ammo shows to have quite a bit in stock on their website, but minimum orders are at 79.99 or above. Prices for 9mm don't seem to be terrible.

Yes, their prices have gone up considerably. I lucked out when I got my 308 from them a couple weeks ago. Sports World is still putting out ammo daily but damn the price jump! I was getting 380 for 17 bucks a box. In March. Now it's 29!

Jeez I can’t even find any decent 7 Mag. Only the shitty Winchester brand on SG. Good thing I stocked up awhile ago.
