Ridiculous. So the price gouging is in full swing

Lots of online vendors only have big magnums and safari cartridges left and the prices don't seem to be coming down due to lack of demand. Some are even worse than this. God bless whoever does the overruns at Nosler...

Saw a box or two of those rounds, up at Sportsmans Warehouse in Roseburg OR...

they were like $67.00 per box....

They had some plain Green Box old 180 gr Corelokts in 300 Win Mag.... those were in the $75.00 range for a box of 20....

The same that were available at Walmart for like $20, in Sept before deer and elk season....

Sounds about right, given current conditions

$4.40 per trigger squeeze? No thank you.

I have my doubts that Midway is paying the same price for ammo today that they did a year ago. Unless it’s on sale, Midway has always been a couple of bucks higher then you could find it elsewhere, but it’s nice to get it in a few days instead of a few weeks.

If you don't want to pay it, don't pay it.

If you need 338 WinMag, at least there's some available.

I went up to my local shop to find PMC Bronze 9mm was at $60 per box of 50! I told my buddy who works there that his price was crazy. His response was "It's not a crazy price, as long as people are willing to pay it". With that, I said that you are ripping the lips off the same customers that support this shop in the "good times". Expect some of them to remember how badly they were gouged. Thank God that I reload, and that I learned a little something after Sandy Hook.

338 WM has actually been pretty easy to find. Saw piles of it at Gander and Sportmans. Didn’t think to take note of the prices though.

Seroiusly? That's some bullschit. I saw some 45 ACP yesterday for $59. They can kiss my ass.

I have been buying some 30-06 when I see it. Which believe it or not, have been a fair amount. I bought 3 boxes of Winchester Power Point, 150gr, 30-06 for $19/box on Monday. Mostly picked them up for the brass, but we have a few around here that likes 150gr 30's.

I’m thankful I load my own 338’s. I never needed one, but I found a deal on an early Sako L-61 I couldn’t pass up so I bought it. Recoil isn’t any worse than a 7 mag when loaded with 160 Barnes TTSX.

How fast are 160s in a 338 moving at the muzzle?

Re, Midway: I'm assuming they use an algorithm that factors in purchase cost, availability, and profit margin? Potterfield isn't scrolling through the site like Dr. Evil clicking up the prices of stuff...

I guess if folks are gonna pass on Midway ammo when it's a few cents more a box, then turnabout is fair play. Must admit though, it does seem excessive; although there's no telling how much Potterfield has in them.
