What's with the price of ammo?????

Recommended Posts

Fear of Obama taxing the c r a p out of guns/ammo...I think they may have raised it some for ammo that is.

Can't even say c r a p??

Good thing we have people that hunt and fish to support are government, I don't understand why they would want to take are guns if it so profitable for them to let us keep them.

Lots of discussion about this a while back. Supply can't keep up with demand as people are stockpiling ammo in fear that the government is going to ban/restrict gun rights.

I bought all my ammo for the same price as what I paid last year. Not sure what you are talking about, I guess......

Remmington/Federal/Winchester 30.06 was/is $17-$18 at 'Richards' Sporting Goods.

Maybe you saw a box of the more expensive "higher quality" ammo and got confused?

This comes from my dad who shops ff and he's as cheap as they come. He shoots fed 30.06 180 grain and they were 47.00 a box last sun. He said my .270 round were 56.00 and they were not the preimum rounds because he ask to clerk for help. maybe ff jumped the gun like the gas thing awhile back.

I saw Remington .30-30 ammo for 12.99 last week and .30-06 for 17.99, both on sale. Ammo was getting pretty expensive before the recession hit due to high demand for all metals by China, as well as US ammo producers having a hard time keeping up with military contracts.

Current high prices are due to high demand for ammo, as certain "news" outlets have a lot of people paranoid about the government taking away their guns or taxing ammo by 200 percent, etc. Propoganda works. I've been hearing that type of [PoorWordUsage] for most of my life. Although a few fringe lunatics on the far left might wish for it, it will never happen. The fringe lunatics on the far right love to keep it alive though!

Holy buckets, sounds like it might be time to start loading at home. Im at school right now and I havnt stepped foot inside a sporting goods store in about 3 months and im afraid to look at the price of shotgun ammo now.

Something's not right. I bought my shells a week or so ago at Fleet farm and they were 17.99-- I shoot a 270.

I do remember though when a box of 270 shells were around 12-14 bucks though, and i've only hunted going on 7 years now...

Exactly why I reload. You really can save a boat load of money. I can load premium ammo for a fraction of what you pay for the budget stuff. Reloading supplies have gone up a bit too. But not anywhere near the ammo itself.

I completely agree DR...........especially for handguns, that ammo price is outrageous.....

I am so glad I bought it cheap and stacked it deep.

I can remember paying 100 to 115 dollars per 1000 rounds of 9mm.

I did it with Factory Ammo and Reloading Components.

Could be just "ya get what ya pay for" I was looking for a bear load this past season, an wanted a good quality bullet in 30-06 150 gr. that wont disintagrate upoun impact if I hit bear shoulder, my brother told me to get Hornady interbond, so I did an was taken back by the 30 dollar tag. But right next to it was the green box of cor lok for half the price. The interbond bullet is just a far better bullet an I will pay price for better performance. It dont take much to kill a deer, but I dont hunt for regrets either. boar

I am not saying you are wrong, but it had to be high quality bullets. Maybe they were all out of the cheap stuff? I just bought a box of 30-06 for $16 for the low end fedrals.

    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?  
    • They are probably wired differently. I’ve seen this happen.    Actually I had a brand new 2015 Silverado 2500 diesel issued to me as a company vehicle and had issues galore with the factory wiring and the gooseneck trailer I was pulling. It was the biggest nightmare I’ve ever had and it was all with the factory Chevy wiring and integrated brake controller.   
    • Not the best time of year to be laying in the cold and slop under a truck tracking down wires but I have done that as well. Sounds like you then need to track down the yellow wire on the truck and see where it may be corroded and shorted somewhere.  
    • Thanks for the response leech. I purchased an adapter similar to that one with the test lights. Both trailers I tried are almost new and both have LEDS. All work great with Moms SUV and Dads truck. I’m thinking it has to be somthing corroded or a broken wire on the truck end. But figuring that out is out of my reach.
    • Sounds like it may be a bad harness on the trailer it's self.  Get one of these and test the truck again. If all works it's time to fix or replace the trailer harness. I've done both on the 5 different snowmobile trailers I have had over the years. It could just be a bad corroded or shorted rear light fixture on that one side or a shorted wire on that side.   ATB 16687 Truck Trailer Vehicle Plug Tester 7 Round Blade 4 Pin Wire Light Brake RV Tow  
    • I know this forum gets very little people now days but maybe someone could help me out. So I purchased my self a new ( to me) 2000 Silverado 1500 back in August. Be mindful this is my first truck/vehicle. So I tow often ( boat, snowmobiles, atvs, kayak). But the guy I bought it from had said all trailer lighting works great. So I didn’t think much of it. Well a few weeks after I bought it I hooked up a trailer to try the lights.... well. All running lights work perfect, but, no drivers side signal or brake light, passenger side brake light and signal work great. I have tried 3 different trailers and have tried them on 2 other vehicles everything works great. So first thought is Check fuses right? So it was in at a Chevy dealer getting some work done so I had them cheak it out. Fuses all look good and they told me all trailer lights work perfect. So I thought well maybe my 7 pin to 4 flat adapter was bad. I bought a new one of those and tried again. I got one with the test lights on it and sure enough all lights worked great UNTIL I hooked up a trailer. When I did this it kicked out the drivers side brake light and signal on the trailer. At this point I’m feed up with this issue and I’m to worried about getting nailed so I only tow a little ways from home. Anyone have any thoughts on what this could be? I was thinking maybe a bad ground on truck? But how would you know? And also this truck has spent it entire life in Florida until last May so this is the first winter in MN. But it shouldn’t matter since I tried the lights back in the end of August. Thanks a lot!
    • So reviving a dead thread ..


      The "park switch" may be the cause of the parasitic draw on some of the console equipped models, 
      it's an inexpensive switch that sends a shutdown signal to the BCM. When it goes bad the dash lights do not shut off and it drains the battery. 
      Fords fix is to replace the whole shifter assembly at around $650.00, they do not sell just the switch. 
      Here is the replacement switch with an more detailed explanation of why it happens.
