As many of you know I work at a gun shop and range. Just got off the phone with my major ammo supplier and .45 acp is set to go UP in price anywhere from 5-13% depending on brand on December 1st. So if you need .45 get your Christmas early. :wink:

Don't hold your breath. I think what we are about to see is inflation take its toll on the market as a whole, unfortunately ammo will be one of the things hit as the dollar begins its plummet to sweet nothing.

I am trying to hold as little green backs as possible and hold onto something more tangible like ammo, silver, food, etc. Ammo prices aren't about to spike because of demand, but purely because dollars are worth less and less.

Found 250 Speer Lawman rounds at 15.99 a box :righton: Yes, I could get about the same price at Wal-mart, but they don't usually have any on the shelf at the one near my house.

It's just the normal inflation when the Fed prints a bunch of toilet paper....

I thought it was inflation too but John said it is "optimistic horse hockey". We all know lead and copper are traded commodities and the "traders" seem to think housing will improve which will make more competition for copper and lead for building purposes. :roll:

Sorry, but lead has largely been removed from building materials.

who the heck still buys .45 ammo? :screwy: at the $9 it costs me for 100 rounds, i fail to see what the big fuss is about price.

270sniper, I assume you are reloading at that price? If so, what is the price breakdown of your ammo components that adds up to $9/100 rounds of .45ACP? I'm using bulk FMJs and the lowest I can get to is $15/100 .45s reusing my own brass.

1000 bullets (200gr wadcutter) - $60
1000 primers (winchester large pistol) - $30
range brass

the powder i use i got at a deal from the local store. they ordered it for someone who never came and got it, so paid $105 each for 2 8lb jugs of powder. i get my bullets from pennbullets.com
