    Well, it's been over 24 hours since this, and days since we started. It looks like I will win by default because there isn't ANY 9x19 available and in stock right now.

    Or I'm going to get to select the opening price myself, and I think I'll be able to beat whatever price I select later this year.

    Now I know why you go by WARP. If neither of us can find ammo to price how is that a win? I have very few gunshops within an hour of me, I am not driving all over hell to prove you wrong next year. If I find some ammo, then I will take a pic & send you the price, I don't buy factory unless forced to.:dunno:

    Alright then.

    This is the starting price.

    This is what I have to beat by 10% later this year, or next year, and you'll owe 100 rounds of factory new brass case 9x19 aunition. If I don't, I'll owe you the same.

    http://www.bulkammo.com/bulk-9mm-ammo-9mm115fmjae-50

    $39.25 plus shipping for 50 rounds. That's $0.785 per round, plus shipping.

    My local gunstore has Fed Automatch for the low price of $36.95.
    And it will be all gone within 24hrs.

    When government stops trying to do more things poorly, and focuses on the few things they're supposed to do well. Yeah...probably not in our lifetimes.

    Luck of the draw. Last week I found it at Cabelas ($18.99 for a box of 50) and Big 5 (18.99 for a box of 50).

    Those are pre-panic prices.

    I think the only ammo that is actually selling is the cheap ammo. People want ammo, but nobody is paying the jacked up prices. The lines at the usual big box store times are still a few people deep on the 22lr days. Other than that, the inflated LGS or internet prices are just representative of people sitting on stored ammo.

    Talked to a guy yesterday who had 10k rounds of 22, but was still in line to try to get some 22. On a positive note, the local walmart had the CCI 22 AR ammo for around $23 for 375 rounds and nobody was really touching it. They bought all the 9 and 40 first. So, unless it is the really cheap stuff, nobody really wants to pay the higher price.

    I see this all wrapping up this year (or in a few months). At some point people are going to start to dump the ammo to recover their costs, and when they do, it will be epic.

    ...except that many online retailers are sold out, and they weren't charging 2012 prices when they sold out.

    A few months? I want some of what you're smoking.

    So you went out & found THE most expensive price, really? You sure your not a Dem? I'll post you a pic of a LGS price as soon as I find some, that will be the starting price.:upeyes:
    Even this is cheaper. http://www.luckygunner.com/9mm-115-gr-fmj-silver-bear-50-round
    How about this, $14/box. http://www.atlanticfirearms.com/com...m-1000-round-case-189-00-detail.html?Itemid=0

    Just came from my LGS, bought 3 boxes of Blazer .380 target FMJ, 19.95 plus tax per 50 round box. This is the best price I've found on plain Jane .380 in several months. He also had UMC JHP for 24.95 per box, have plenty of it already so no need to get any more.

    You claimed that you could not find ANY in stock. If nothing is in stock, I win by default. But you were incorrect in that claim anyway.

    You think that was the most expensive? You obviously aren't doing your research.

    But thank you for finally providing the starting point.

    The current best priced available 9x19 factory brass ammunition is $39.25 for 50 rounds plus shipping.

    I will have to beat that by 10% later this year or next year in order to win.

    Game on!

    You are the same guy that thinks their libertarian vote was not a vote for Obama right? No, I will set the factory price when I find some, so no, you do not win by default. Besides, where did you come up with $40? I see an add there for Wolf, $14/box??? Geez, fricking libertards.:upeyes:

    Exactly how much time do you plan on taking?

    It's been, what, a week or more? And you STILL haven't found the starting point?

    Apparently ammo isn't actually currently available at the prices you seem to think it is.

    Also...what part of "brass case" do you not understand?

    If you want to change the parameters again, okay, we can do that. It is now for the best price on a 1,000 round case of ANY 9mm, including steel case Russian ammo.

    The new starting point is $279 for 1,000 rounds of steel case 9mm. (plus $25 shipping) I will have to beat that by 10% later this year or next year.

    Game on! (again)

    Huh? Hotpig has Federal Tactical HST 9mm 147gr P9HST2 50 rounds at $25.90.

    Brass Cased premium ammo

    If you buy 500 rounds he even knocks off $1 a box. If the best you can find is $39+ a box for 50 rounds...you aren't looking hard enough

    http://www.mahsupplies.net/

    and Hotpig is where I have bought all my premium stuff...highly recommended.
