You think thats bad, Ive been on the hunt for 270 ammo, luckily a guy on a forum sold me a box. This shit is ridiculous, $4-5 a round. Ill just wait or kill em with a bow.
Was eyeing that myself. Just can’t justify buying it right now with the high ammo prices.Midways prices have always been a touch high on ammo. However lately they have gone up drastically along with everyone else. I've been eyeing the 6.8 western for no good reason. Midway has that in stock today but at $54 a box its damn hard to even think about it as a new chambering.
If anyone wants to jump on the untested round bandwagon there is a seat open.
Really think the cost of making .22 Long Rifle ammo went up 300% in 6 months?Its impossible to say if he is gouging without knowing what his cost was on that ammo. If a business doesn't increase its pricing when their cost is going up to replace current inventory they don't remain in business very long.
No. I was posting to show that firstly the ammunition sold out immediately at that price, and secondly the only other place that has it in stock is about the same price. For $1 more per box I’d gladly give Midway my business over a company with crappy reviewsHave you ordered from this company? I did a little internet research and man they have some really bad reviews.
Ahh, the good ole days. Lead, copper, brass, have all gone up. I imagine importing powder cost more now as well.Sure AF did.....It's a no win for "us". No more 223 with Blue Dot and 55grn bulk bullets. No more cast bullets over 3 grains of cheap powder for 9mm plinking loads at pennies per round. Lotta pennies maybe.
That's why I said...."back to Archery for me"
If its supply and demand at work, then its not price gouging.Call it what you want, it's price gouging. Why make excuses for them...they know what they're doing, its supply and demand at work, like it or not.
