If I had known how much better being retired is than working I would have done it FIRST.

The going rate right now for 9mm brass target ammo is ~$410 delivered for 1000rds. That same ammo was $800 a couple of months ago.
CZ Shadow 2 Orange, S2 black and blue. Three polished stainless 75b's and a black 75b all with MCARBO kits and front Dawson FO. CZ75b Retro.

I just bought CCI Blazer Brass 9mm Luger Ammo 115 Grain, Full Metal Jacket-Case of 1000 (20 Boxes of 50)  with  Free Shipping for $399.80 plus tax, from targetsportsusa.com

But now their website indicates 124gr at $.50/rd

It is going the right direction, but in 2019 I could get 1000 rounds of 9mm 115 or 124 gr FMJ for 179.00 including shipping. I'm hoping it will get back down near those levels sometime in the future.

I’m praying that 300 blackout comes down soon.

40 and 45 are available, but prices still in the 500 to 600 range for a case of 1,000.  Defensive ammo is still in $1.50 to $2.00 a shot in any caliber.  Hope this ends soon.

It will continue to fall.  I'm a buyer when it gets to $200/1000rds if I need it.  Fortunately, my hoarding paid off.  I have not had to buy a bit of overpriced ammo.  In fact, I was able to sell some.  I'm going to use that same money to buy back more later.  It's my part to help the ammo manufacturing industry during low demand times.  O0

I’m praying that 300 blackout comes down soon.
300 Blackout was never down where it should be if you compare to comparable cartridges like brass cased boxer primed 7.62x39.  I think Prvi getting in on the action will ultimately drive the price down significantly.

We can apply our own downward market pressure by not getting out our credit cards until we see 2019 prices again.  Fortunately I've been an ammo hoarder for 30 years and have enough in reserve to supply a sustained campaign of the Bolivian army, so I can wait it out.  I'll be back in the game when we see a case of Blazer Brass 9mm for $189 + shipping.

Second that! I bought cheap and stocked deep. Got years of supply .but will be buying again when it gets reasonable again!

This ammo crisis is my “lesson learned” moment for ammo stocking. Never again.

The problem that most people had was that they viewed well stocked store shelves as their ammo supply.  Then they found out the hard way that it wasn't.

I was in a few ammo stores over the last few days, stretching from Arkansas to Michigan. Lots of ammo just sitting on shelfs at most of them, including 9mm (range and defensive) and 300 blackout. Prices were mostly around the $18 per 50 for the range 9mm. One store had a LOT of inventory, but was the most expensive too. It was good to see the move back to normalcy, instead of the ammo being dolled out from behind a counter.

Yeah, my local Academy was seeing lines wrapped around the building two hours before opening and a limit of two boxes of ammo period. They typically ran out before the line ended. Now it’s 4 boxes of ammo per caliber and no lines. Now they almost can’t give it away. Prices need to come down $2-$5 per box.

9 MM prices falling

One of those falling prices landed on my foot. I've been limping all week.  :'(
