    Seriously a lot of the ammo prices your seeing on the web in stores and gun shops are more reasonable than is seems, due to manufacture-wholesale to dealer costs.

    Current dealer costs listed below are for per box pricing not including shipping or hazmat fees, case pricing is a little better but not much, maybe .50 -.75 cents per box.

    If you’re a smaller dealer you would have to sell a full case of ammo to make 10.00 - 25.00 on the case pricing , and still have to cover the freight and hazmat fees. 35.00-75.00$

    How much profit would you want for what you make or sell ??

    Federal AE 308D 150gr FMJ Cost 14.23 box 20
    Federal PPD 9MM 135gr Hydra-Shock Cost 17.91 box 20
    Federal PPD 40SW 135gr Hydra-Shock Cost 19.88 box 20
    Federal PPD 45A 230gr Hydra-Shock Cost 19.88 box 20

    These are current FFL Dealer wholesale prices , if you can get any is another question.

    I doubt prices will go anywhere but up , even if the manufactures catch up on production, Winchester publishes the factory MSRP on their web sight, current 223 ball is 14.00 for 20 rounds.

    Having fun at the range is going to be expensive, but do not take it out on your local dealer and retailer, they need to make a living too.

    Not really a classified ad - moved to the appropriate forum area.
