I have been using ammoseek.com to search for 22LR. I set up a search to get notified when it drops below a certain price and In the past month the most I have paid is 11 cents a round for CCI mini-mags and 8 cents for Aguila. You have to be fast though to get it before it sells out.

Got a couple 500 round boxes of Aguila at Dick's the other day for $27.99 each. Even that is too high but I guess I did OK.

That's a great deal. I haven't seen Aguila that cheap since June when I paid the same at Mid South.

I just looked on the auction site, four boxes of Lawman 9mm for starting price of $150! Just got back from town with the wife and we bought 4 boxes of Federal practice 9mm for $13.95/box, limit of two per customer. The store had over 13,000 rounds of the stuff. I did a quick count on the shelves it was stacked. I think that price is high, but they have the only 9mm in town.

I wouldn't have gotten it at Dick's if they were giving it away!

How does $199.99 for 200 fmj 380ACP sound?

After shipping it cost $165 for 100 rounds of 50 Beowulf yesterday from Freedom Munitions. Today I spent $174 on 1000 large pistol magnum primers, 50 XTP .500 bullets and 2 lbs of Lil Gun powder.

Just bought the same today at Cabela's for 27 bucks OTD no tax in Montana, Had 10 or 12 on the shelf but never shot any before and really didn't need 22 ammo anyway. But had to try 500.

One my LGS wanted $13+ for one box of five 12 ga. slugs. My other LGS sold me the same for $7 & some change. I am still getting FMJ 100 rounds of .45 & .40 for about .50 cents a round, not great but not terrible in these times.

I think you are right but holding on to mine. I have plenty of reloading supplies and 22 ammo because I got caught low the last time. Don't sell my reloads or give them away either and would not even feel right selling 22 for what scalpers are asking. I would give some 22 ammo to friends or family in need though.

Two days ago I bought 2 boxes of 9mm at cabelas for $13 each and 2 boxes of 22 for $7.99. So 100 extra of nine and 200 extra of 22. Not a big score but I am still pleased.

Today Sportmans Warehouse had Blazer 115 for $15.99 and Winchester WB 115 in 100 round bulk boxes for $34.99. Also had Federal 5.56 for $10.99/20, no cases this time.

All too much per round for me but I did pick up a few boxes of Rio 12ga 00 and #4 buck for $2.99/box of 5.

.40 S & W and >45 are a couple of bucks a box but hard to find, and mostly a one box limit, but I've done OK. I want to out again before the election to stock up.

If Biden get in watch what happen to price and availability. Today will look like the good old days.

Good deals are still out there for the patient and vigilant. Yesterday, I bought Speer .38 Spl 125 gr FMJ for $19/50 and WWB .45 Auto for $70/200 at a local store. I have no idea how the scalpers are finding suckers to buy at insane prices.....
