Also interesting that they miraculously got them back in stock the day after Bozo's press conference.

Those are MG bullets... Talk about gouging.... 25.9 cents a bullet for 55 fmjs WTF! Makes the 1000 Nosler 69 hpbt bullets I bought from Midway seen even more of a bargain at 17.3 cents. These guys can go screw themselves.

I sent them an email calling them out on their 300% markup. I bet they don't even respond.

This was their response:

Craig



We have seen over a 100% increase in cost on brass and bullets since the election. We kept the prices as low as possible until our existing inventory ran out. As you can see on our site we are out of stock on almost everything. I normally get shipments every week. It has been 7 weeks since my last shipment. It is a case of supply and demand. My suppliers are charging significantly more and I have to pass those costs to my customers. I understand the frustration, but there is nothing I can do about it if I want to stay in business. I'm not running a charity. I have to turn a profit. Thanks

BS, they have not incurred a 100% increase. I would never buy from them again. Man I hope mu bullet dies get here soon, this is just getting better & better.

WOW, I'm thankful I stocked up on 223 bullets last year because this is crazy.

I have a few friends that are FFL holders, one has nothing in stock because he didn't rase prices and everything is gone. Good thing he has a "day job", because he doesn't know when he is going to get anything back in stock.

The other is doing quite well selling to panic buyers or people that were otherwise unprepared. He doesn't lie about it though, that's a thumbs down for sure.

the napa that i work at sells ammo, 9mm 40 380 223, amongst other calibers and it STAYS ON THE SHELF because no one would think napa would sell ammo go figure


with my discount i can get 223 for 10 % over my bosses cost to buy it,

so for 50 round box of 55 grain i would pay like 10 to 15 dollars.


my only problem is i want an AR15 but dont have one and cant afford one!
