    I don't know if it's true or a marketing ploy, but this was in my inbox.

    Yea, it's been going up because of the prices of metals. I know the .40 has. Personally, every time I've bought it, it's been $20 per 100 rds for WWB. Not too long ago, it was a few dollars cheaper for the same box...I think just a matter of months. I'm looking to stock up a little bit now. Gun show here in Orlando isn't until weekend of 4th of July.

    I have seen reports of loading components being hard to come by as well.

    I think the prices are going to be affected by the '08 elections, too...

    I've been starting to stock up, but after the 16th I'll probably have to start again. Right now I have about 550 9mm, 300 7.65Arg, 280 7.62x54r, 240 .223, 500 .380, and around 600 .22. I'll probably pick up a few more boxes of Wolf .223 before the 16th. I need to go to Bernies durring lunch one day and get another ammo can anyway.

    Everything but the 9mm and .22 I can get cheaper on the net that I can here. Especially the 7.65, 7.62x54R and .380. I just got the 500 rounds of .380, Blazer Aluminum, for $86 to my door. I can't touch .380 for that here.

    Cheapest ammo you can get right now is 5.45x39 . A once in a lifetime deal because of the dumping of eastern bloc surplus on the market. Its $120 per 1080 . My AK74 gets alot of shooting time right now....and to think last year at this time the 5.45 was near impossible to get.

    Prices will continue to rise so stock up!

    I am going to a gun show tommarrow to get some bulk wolf .223 and 7.62x39 I figure it will be a little over $350.00 thats crazy! Ill check Gander mountain in the morning on the way there, sometimes they run sales. I need .308 and 5.7x28 too but cant afford everything right now Ill just get a few boxes. I am hitting the range Sunday. Ammo prices suck! :cry:

    Nice! I got some brown bear today for the AK I bought. I'll try and get some bulk something or other at the show coming up down here.

    Hey, which Walmarts around Atlanta sell ammo? The one that is close to me doesn't.

    Thanks

    I am in the middle of Atlanta, so I will have to travel either way. I checked the one on I-20 inside the parameter but that one didn't have any. I goto the range at Forest Park, so maybe one close to there?

    Yea, it'd be worth a try. I haven't been to any of the walmarts around there, though.
