Ammo Prices Increasing

Post by PapaDawg on Thu Jul 05, 2012 10:43 am

Hey All - opened my regular newsletter from Natchez Shooters Supply and they're announcing a price increase at midnight July 8th. Appears to be CCI and Federal in 9, 380, 40 and 45. Anyone else aware of this and do you think it's going to go across all manufacturers and calibers?

Let the "Election Year" games begin! Understand it cause I have seen more little old ladies (men too) buying guns than ever before!

Hey Mikey - great to see ya! Got anything you want to sell me cheap? lol

Re my original post - always thought this was going to happen - and now it is. However, it appears that the prices NSS posted are pretty decent and I may load up (pun intended) on some.

Take care my friend and have a good'un

Hey Papadawg, always got a couple of things! Got two MAS36s and a couple of 91/30s. thinking Yeah, I saw this coming but it has still been a surprise with the number of people buying guns and asking for recommendations!
Take care yourself.

The decrease in the value of the US dollar is making almost every commodity go up in price. Large manufacturers aren't going to greatly increase their prices because of the election, but scarcity of ammo might cause dealers or distributors to start to gouge again. A strong US dollar could bring the prices down, but I doubt an prices are going anywhere but up as the US dollar continues to weaken. When you factor in current inflation rates, ammo prices really haven't increased that much in the last 20 years.

I have noticed prices edging up for the past few months... Maybe 10 - 15%. No more $9.99 9mm and $6.00 .223, unless you really search.
