Yep, Its the price of metals, and shipping too...Even reloaders are feeling it, component prices have gone up too.
pblsyd said:you people want to pay for ammo? come on up to Canada. 12 ga. 3" steel shot $28.99 / box of 25. smaller gauges are proportionately worse. 7mm rem. ultra mag. $55.00 box of 20. not too big a deal unless moose start walking around like squirrels, and you don't take an ultra mag to the range to shoot for the hell of it..30-30 win. on sale $18.99 , .30-06 $27.99, .308 win. $26.99. i don't shoot as much trap and skeet as i used to, but even reloads will run $7.00 to $9.00 / box depending on what one is reloading. but then whats cheap anymore, if shooting ever was!!!!! pblsyd
