So are ammo prices (especially .223 and 7.62x39) going to skyrocket again once Russian imports dry up or are there enough cheap imports from other places to sustain current prices?

      When it was sub .25cpr I'd shoot every other weekend.
      With stock sold out over the last few years, or with prices double/triple what they were, those shooting excursions tailed off to once every other month or so.
      With the Russhit ammo banned, other countries have stepped up, but we'll never see sub .25cpr again unless they flood the market and demand drops.

      These anons hit the nail on the head. Even low-key countries like Kyrgyzstan started spinning up their soviet ammo factories and selling here. Don't forget the rumors of PSA tooling up their own ammo production.

      I would say the days of .25 cpr steelcase is gone, but it might get close depending on the outcome of the elections.

        Pretty sure it's more than rumor at this point, and it appears that they're putting several big projects they've had going, namely their MP5, completely on hold so they can focus on it. My hope is they're seeing serious opportunity with ammo production and are going whole hog on that.

          AAC is made by PSA or at least it's sister company. They current sell 9mm & 5.56.
          It seems like they could handle 7.62 but there's a lot of competition at the bottom. Is there even demand for brass 7.62?

            Brass 7.62x39 is fine but steel has always been cheaper, outside the good old days of yugoslav crates yanked from a bunker in bosnia.
            If a manufacturer can get brass 7.62x39 to steel prices, itll be the way to go.

              Even if possible, still wouldn't make financial sense with brass having a higher perceived value. Someone still has to want to pay more for brass. I dunno. Think prices are only going up & won't fall more than 10% if at all. I've just been searching online deals & taking advantage of tax-free pricing. People still looking at the store are wasting their time.

      The point isn't who can make it, it's who can make it the cheapest. Other companies in the USA make 7.62x39, but only brass case which is expensive as fuck.

            Yeah I shoot twice a week about 150 rounds of 9mm each day shit adds up for sure. Reloading helps but can't keep up with reloads because I lack the time. So gotta supplement with factory ammo. Been buying blazer brass shit is absurdly accurate in my glock.

              Every handgun round should be "absurdly accurate". At 50 yards, you're shooting a 2" group at 4 MOA, and I KNOW you're not shooting that well.

              Are you a currently competing world champ in IPSC or USPSA? Because otherwise you don't need to shoot that much. You will get better with dry fire. That's not to say I don't wish prices get better, of course I hope they do, but you're still probably wasting ammo. I did the same mistake of thinking high round count = better shooter.

      Federal is really stupid for not cranking out some cheap 7.62x39 for us. They should've done it long ago, it would've hurt Russia.

    Eurofag here.
    Our prices skyrocketed the moment Ruskie started their poorfag blitzkrieg, because everyone hoarded anything they could get their hands on + leftover Ruskie shit was sent to Ukraine as an aid soon after.

    7.62x39 instantly went from ~20 euro cents, to around 1€ a piece. Most places are simply sold out.

    I keep looking for Wolf & Tula but, brass is usually only 2 cents more.
    I did find a good deal on wolf 9mm that was 297 shipped for 1k but paid 320 for 1k brass AAC the day before.
    I even paid taxes on the AAC. If I paid taxes on the Wolf, it would have been more than the brass.
    I just want some more 32 cent Wolf gold bros.

    What do you think? I can regularly find 5.56 for $1.00 a round at local stores. They get as much as they think they can.

    Ammo prices have actually gone down significantly on the back end its stores that are selling it for 3-4X what they actually bought it for keeping the prices stagnant. Why? Because they can and people will buy it thinking it's normal. The store I used to work at did this and I just had to smile and agree with customers asking if I ever thought the prices were gonna come down. Meanwhile the hole in the wall store down the street was selling 5.56 for 12 dollars a box while we sold it for $20. Cost was $4 per box from the distributor.

      What do I have to do to become a store that can order 20cpr 5.56 from distributors? Can I just open like a garage ammo sales company and they'll sell it to me for that?

        You might be able to do it as an at home FFL but I'm not sure, I havent looked into it much. Mainly because having an FFL means having every federal agency breathing down your neck for the rest of your life

          But you don't actually legally need an FFL to sell ammo. Is it the distributors that only sell to FFL as company/industry policy?

    lets say you own a company that sells desirable consumables, and you dont have much competition. demand outstrips supply. you also have lots of external factors that allow you to wave your hands and raise your prices without pushback. why would you ever reduce the price? what was the price of ammo 10 years ago? 30 years ago? the ratchet only goes in one direction. the days of affordable shooting are over.

    Doesn't matter, I'm not shooting any Ruskie ammo made since the special operation started. Not because of any political reasons, but because I suspect they'll be spiking ammo Project Eldest Son style.
