    I went to Wally world tonight an wondered over to the sporting goods section and Saw that .40 ammo that used to be 12.87 a a few months back is now up in the $16 range! What is up with that? They used to be cheaper then Bimart. has anyone else noticed this? :confused:

    I dont go to China Mart, but I have noticed that ammo prices are actually going down a bit. That is a GOOD thing!

    If you buy at Mall-Wart you might as well be sending the Chinese Army a monthly check IMHO.

    I've bought the Federal red box stuff for most of 2009 for $13.97 a box, about 2 weeks ago was the last time. The other brands are more for some reason, even tho its comparable IMO

    Federal sent us a price increase for the first of the year. Around 3-5%.

    I would expect this is more due to the devaluation of the dollar and the increase in metal prices worldwide than anything else.

    Anytime I go the walmart in woodburn there isn't any ammo besides some oddball rifle ammo and shotgun shells. I personally prefer to shop at bi-mart just because the selection is much better.

    Where was it being sold for $108 per 1000 last year? Are you sure you aren't confusing it with the 50rd price?

    So do you say this while driving a Toyota (Subaru, Honda, Kia, etc) to Bi-Mart?

    Sending money to Japanese companies is a lot better than sending money to Chinese companies. That being said, I support whoever makes the best product at the best prices.

    Because Japan is #2 on the US trade deficit list or because our trade deficit with Japan is older?

    Japan imports 160% as much as we do from China. Either way they get a good chunk of your dollar. Both of them are the top two owners of our debt.

    This should cheer you up - you poor guys in the USA feeling ripped off at ammo prices.....

    RPA Match Grade .50 ammunition - £8.00 per each.

    £800.00 per C = $13.60 per shot.

    One of the reasons why I don't have a .50 cal anything here in yUK.

    Agreed, ammo prices have 'finally' started to drop a little bit.
