    Prices are starting to drop now. Be patient.

    You'll never see 7.62x39 for $65 a thousand again... but prices will drop.

    That was pretty expensive for 21 years ago. I thought 9mm was still around $5-$7 per 50 even as recently as 5-10 years ago.

    Availability seems to be easing up a little (just a little) but I don't see prices dropping really. Demand is going to remain high for a long long time. Material costs may not be a huge factor in the price but it IS a factor and material costs only go up. Transportation too.

    Same thing as with gas. Once they realize we will pay it they will not lower it.

    im seeing like gas, squeeze what ya can out of the ones paying for it then back down some, not to where it was but relieve some of the pressure so they will be happy its not as high as it was.
