Not only are the wars sucking the ammo supply dry driving prices up, AND asia developing industries pulling in every bit of metal they can buy driving the prices up, AND the shooting world buying up ammo and driving the price up becuase they fear it is going up, AND the global demand for fertilizer draining nitrates from powder manufacturers - BUT there is ALSO an election comming and EVERY major candidate is no friend of gun owners. EXPECT ammo taxes. EXPECT new import bans. EXPECT "assault feature" bans. THIS IS YOUR LAST WARNING. If you don't put $50 into 22 ammo today, don't whine to me when its 10 cents a cartridge. There's no reason not to buy a brick of 22 each paycheck unless you already have a large supply on hand. If you don't buy centerfire ammo and reloading supplies now, don't blame me when you can't afford to later. The same is true for shotgunners as it is for rifle shooters. Its just gonna get worse. If you haven't already stocked up. Its going to cost you more now. But if you wait. It's just gonna be worse.
