i figure if the import ban was lifted on china ammo it could help the situation but this might hurt domestic sources and i doubt that any repeal of the china ammo ban is in the works.
the old cheap ammo was $.05 a round ---the new cheap ammo will be under $1 somewhere.
hell any good ammo under $.40 per round today ain't considered all that bad. a few years back a round that expensive had to have some gold in it somewhere--LOL
I go with what Misty is saying..
Inflation plus copper, brass, cost of shipping, inflation, oh I said that..
As soon as their is the least bit of price drop, supply and demand.
People want, they buy...
Factor in the key here "Powder" to make the bullet go bang..
New companies are not being built, that I know of.. Maybe one in Canada, not real sure on that one?
Saint Marks "Florida" and the few other powder companies here in the U.S..
Their old machinery is going 24/7 to meet demand..
They sell all over the world.. Not just too us guys..
See those wars we keep seeing on the T.V...
Very well could be Florida Saint Marks powder slinging lead both ways?
Just a guess now?
I don't think their is any "secret stashes" oh someone could be stocked and watching the market?
They just can't keep up with the damn demand..
