I did too. And 5.56 for .25 a round. I bought as much as I could.Remember when WalMart had their ammo at half price because they didn’t want to sell ammo anymore? I bought up a lot, and I mean a lot of it. Some people on here made fun of me for it. Same as when I bought stripped AR lowers before the election. Well, I won’t need ammo for a few years, and I sold the lowers for a huge profit. Moral of the story, plan ahead and be prepared. Now go buy some TP cause it’s gonna get scarce after Trump wins and the left burns everything down.
Last I bought a case it was $165 delivered off of SGAMMO.com
That was a while ago though.
What kind of 9mm? Is it basic FMJ target (more than likely) or some brand of top line self defense ammo like Federal Premium HST? It makes a difference.
Somehow, I don't think many here are grasping the concept.
The companies are NOT SELLING AMMO TO US.
They are selling it to the newbies.
Those people who a year ago wouldn't dirty their hands touching something as crude as a firearm.
Why are companies selling 9mm ball ammo at $600/1,000?
Because they are SELLING 9mm ball at $600/1,000.
If it wasn't moving, the prices would come down.
I have found that I regret the questionable things I didn't do more than the questionable things I did do -I recently helped out a co-worker to 100rds. She's one of these people you're describing. She's late 50's, nice lady, got the fear earlier this year with all the "unrest" going on and bought herself a pistol. But now can't find ammo anywhere. So I brought her a 100rd bulkpack of WWB and she pulled $80 out of her pocketbook. I started laughing and told her I didn't need anything for it. She insisted, a couple times. I finally took $20 and explained to her that was the ballpark price when things are normal, and what I most likely paid for it give or take a dollar. She was so grateful I probably coulda got something more. She kinda makes Phyllis Diller look good though so I ain't regrettin' the lost opportunity.
More info. If it’s a premium defense ammo in 20 rd boxes.
