I am not saying they are or they are not but with the price of gasoline going through the stratosphere one would expect that prices will go up. As a matter of fact, and reported on here for your information, SG AMMO expects ammo prices to rise in the next few weeks:
"04-17-2011 - Hello SGAmmo.com customers,
I consider it my duty to inform our customer base that significant price increases on various brands of ammunition will go into effect in the next few weeks, We will hold back on raising prices on certain items that are currently in good supply, however it appears inevitable that a broad line of commercial ammunition products will rise in price, so please consider that when evaluating your ammo needs. We will continue to search for special purchase items of better than average value and offer the best prices we can on our entire product line.
The above quote is from their homepage at: http://www.sgammo.com/.
I may have to check my recent inventory to see what I may be low on and then stock up on some of that. I recently ordered a 440 tin of 7.62x54R, from MilitaryShooters.com that should arrive tomorrow. That went for $92.14 shipped. Tonight, I ordered a case of 500 rounds of Federal® 9 mm 147 - gr. JHP Ammo from the SportsmansGuide.com. That set me back $159.21 shipped (with club membership discount and a $5 off online coupon). I also was thinking of getting some more 7.62x39 and .223 since I have still have some money left over in my guns ammo money fund. I had $1,200 for the gun show last week ans spent nowhere near that much. Since then though I spent most of what was left over on regular expenses and these two ammo orders. Still though, there is some left over, so I am tempted to at least pick up anything of which I may be in short supply or that .223 or 7.62x39. Decisions, decisions, decisions - tough as they are, they need to be made! I guess my next order should come from SG Ammo since ghey were nice enough to give the warning about the expected price increases (and they have pretty good prices and pretty good service too).
All the best,
The Scrap Heap
