Just got email from Natchez. The following message was in the email...

Ammunition Manufacturers are having yet ANOTHER price increase Oct 1, 2006.
Be sure to take advantage of current ammo pricing! Prices good thru Sept. 30, 2006.

Ammo manufactures are still planning to have their normal January 1st increase too.

Who knows where it will stop!


If you're planning to buy some factory ammo... better stock up now!

All the more reason to reload, and keep a good stock of supplies.:D
Agreed! But always nice to have a box or two of factory in each caliber one owns. JHMO [8D]

BTW, any good gun shops down your way, Calvin??

Reloading supplys are going up too. The price of lead and zinc and other metals commonly used in bullets and reloading components have went through the roof!

Two good ones in Poteau. Poteau Pawn and Gun and Jr's Pawn and Gun. Both are reasonable on new guns and will dicker on used ones.

I know the price of copper romex wire really got high as of late. I bought a 25 foot box of 12-2 with ground a while back. About fell over backwards from sticker shock.

Probably won't be long before the price gougers try to get as much for reloading supplies as factory ammo. Hope not.

You've changed your style, Hornet.
I don't remember ammo prices from 2006.
Do you? ... :cool:. :D

Below is comparison of Natchez catalog and online prices posted in 2006.


Next was a box of Aguila .22 Super Maximum (soft point). The on-line price was $1.85 while the mini catalog price was $1.62.
Next in line was a box of Aguila Sniper Subsonic. The on-line catalog noted a "regular" price of $3.03 but on sale for $2.49. The mini catalog noted a regular price of $2.94 but on sale for $2.65. The last Aguila item was a box of their .22 Match Pistol. The mini catalog noted it had a regular price of $2.17 but was on sale for $2.06. On-line displayed a message to call by telephone for this item. Turned out is was out of stock, but, there was a substitute offered.


Today on thier site, good target ammo is 12.99 to 16.99 per box.

Nowadays I just chuck the Natchez catalog I receive in the mail because their prices are very high.
I never dealt with Natchez in 2006.
Were they high then?
If so, that makes your price comparison even more significant :eek:

I dropped them and cheaper than dirt from my email a long time ago. Shipping charges are ridiculous.

I looked at the Natchez site but came to find out that they do not do business with the State of Georgia, (also Alabama & Tennessee), for whatever reason.

So they already did me the favor of not having to deal with them! ;)

I've never had any reason to deal with them but would be a little curious what that's all about. I mean you're in the South, you're in the shooting business, and you cut out 3 big shooting States? Whatever the reasons that seems like leaving a lot of money on the table.
