I just shot a hundred rounds yesterday at 21.88 for wwb from walmart. I looked today and they went up to 27.88 a box for .40 s&w. I think my shooting might slow a little. Looks like i will have to shoot the p95 a little more seeing that ammo is still under 20.00 for a hundred of wwb. I love going to the range and its tuff when ammo prices get that high.
I've reloaded for years. So, even though there has been an increase in component prices as well, they haven't been as bad as factory ammo. If you aren't a big experimenter, and I'm not, you won't be buying every new thing on the block. For example, in .45 acp I have two loads. One for cast and one for jacketed. Both use the same powder and primer. So when I buy those, I buy in bulk. Another point, if you don't always try to load at or over the max listed in the books (yea, there are people that to it), the brass will last longer. It still wears out, but not as fast.
well i just watched a report on the tube where silver prices are going to really go up in the next months , korea is using more an more and are demaning large lots of silver , so as everything else look out
I cut corners else were in order to stock up. I have been reloading for years as well. I plan to have much more. Now this just my opinon but I feel like they have already figured out that they can get our guns so next best think make it so expencive to shoot, you can't afford to do it.
I am actually shooting more. Mainly because I bought new guns. I have been looking around more for the cheapest prices on ammo. And I have not been bying the premium ammo just for target practice. I'll just buy practice ammo when applicable to sight in. I'll use half or less of the ammo I'll be hunting with to fine tune my sighting in. I have also been shooting alot of surplus rifles and ammo. Those Russian M44's are fun to shoot and ammo can be found cheap.
I been buying more supplies as I have been reloading for a few years. I still shoot as much as I want. My price has gone up too it just don't hurt as bad. I am still under 1/2 of what factory reloads are selling for.
