Ammo Prices

No only has price gone up, but the places I shop locally for handgun target ammo seem to be out of stock more frequently of many brands and types that they once stocked in abundance. Lately I see a lot of off brands or remanufactured stuff from unknown makers. Noticed this started happening around the end of 2005.

Could be that all the good stuff from Winchester, Federal, Black Hills, and CCI-Speer is in short supply because distributor stock piles have finally dried up, and because these companies have won contracts to supply the DoD and other federal agencies with ammo, so a good portion of their efforts and materials are spoken for.

Ammo Prices

I started shooting the 30/30 and .22 more due to cost. I just sold the 30/30 though, so I guess I'll be plinking alot with the 22.
