Are ammo prices ever gonna come back down?

The cases of Wolf steel case .223 that I used to buy for $180 bucks cost like $450 now. Anything brass is close to 50 cents a round except for underpowered PMC bronze. Is there any hope of prices dropping or restrictions on cheap russian steel case ever again?

      Hey dipshit it's an election year, walmart doesn't hold the price low and the most affordable ammo we had has all been sanctioned and banned from import. It's not just muh ignorant panic buyers you fricking dumbass.

      that's what you get for shooting boring normie calibers.

      What an idiotic statement. Yes nobody regrets their carcano purchase which has unobtanium ammo and I'm sure all the 5.45 slavaboos agree with you too oh except their cheapest shit is over 70cpr. You are an unfunny buffoon.

    If you look at the way the geopolitics are going, obviously not.
    Even if the war ends today and eventually sanctions on Pussia are lifted, they'll keep that one ammo sanction in there for political reasons.

        Not much lately which will likely paradoxically lead to further increases in prices as multiple countries already started arming themselves to the teeth to avoid being next ukraine which drives demand up both on ammo itself and on metals.

      What is panic buying and how do you "stop" it, bar eating into any stockpile if you have the luxury of even having one in the first place? If I don't have rounds, and some homosexual is selling rounds, I gotta pay their price.

      There is a big difference to paying inflated prices over MSRP in a store and buying from literal scalpers. Frick scalpers and anyone who buys from them. A dry market is a dry market however, and capitalism dictates the shelf price. Or are you a commie?

    Yes, insofar as it's part of normal market price fluctuation. Barring any new competitors in the market or some magic breakthrough that makes ammo production significantly cheaper though, it probably won't go back to pre-sandy hook prices.

    >or restrictions on cheap russian steel case ever again?
    Lol. Lmao, even. They russians are getting the treatment the chinese got a few decades ago. For us, that means one fewer source of cheap ammo. Once those import bans are there, they tend to stay.

    Also to echo other anons ITT: you should expect exactly nothing about extreme price cycles (due to mass shootings, gun grabs, election year shenanigans, etc) to change unless gun owners learn to stop panic buying. Frick manufacturers and their armies of influencers who create panic buying conditions.

    to my understanding, Tula has been gearing up like crazy in Turkey. When that's set up, then cheap steel case should return to how it was, and as such prices for other ammos will drop with it. PSA also bought steel cased ammo production shit like 2 years ago and they should be rolling that out soon too. We're in this really shit time were it's an election year, recent bs regulations have ruined things, coming out of COVID gun grabbing, and the supposed solutions are trying to be slap dashed together. However, it's still not as bad as post-Sandy Hook when morons were buying 20rnd boxes of 223 for $40.

    I've mostly been shooting 22lr and 9mm, as those prices are still stomachable. Reloading stuff is also back to the level it used to be (except primers sadly).

      44 mag is now, if it wasn't already, a high dollar shooter caliber. If you're buying a 44 magnum revolver or carbine, it's gonna be $1k+. The days of $450 Rossis in 44 and 357 mag are behind us, as even they now command a premium. So, if you're gonna get a $1200 gun, you're probably not as worried about spending $1 a round. You could also just handload, but that seems to scare a lot of people off.

      Hand loading doesn't really save you much for a caliber as common as 44 magnum. It also takes time which you can't get back. Money is much easier to acquire than time is.

        Calibers like 44 really do save you time if you want specific types of ammo, for example getting zero recoil ammo thats accurate can sometimes be difficult if cost is a thing, or if you want to train with full power defensive loads. I can make a 50 dollar box of hyper ammo for 5 dollars in materials. Reloading saves money if you're really into shooting particular calibers.

    Most foriegn banned from import. Domestic cant catch up with supply.
    Multiple wars going on that use popular calibers, and are being supplied by domestic production.
    Even artillery stockpiles have been being used so fast production around the world has been ramping up.
    Since 2020 guns have been bought by huge numbers of households that didnt used to shoot, and now want ammo.

    The only reduced demand is probably Canada since they banned so many guns.

    Then if it finaly goes down at all hoarders by so much that they stop lowering any further.

    Safe to say it will be high for some years. Unless trump wins and completely goes isolationist and we end up no longer supplying ammo for others or needing as much for the armed forces and allies. Then it might catch up to demand in a couple.

      It really doesn't need to be that complex. Hoarders will often breathe sighs of relief when a non-democrat is in office, and that kind of slows down things. Without the direct fear, many won't feel the need to hoard and hoard some more. Fudds can go back to picking up a box of 50 for when they want to go shooting, and some guy with a hi point won't feel the need to go buy 3k rounds at inflated prices because it's gonna get banned soon. Whether those fears are warranted or not, they do play a very real role in supply.
