I was looking at another forum and a guy has (500) 6.5mm 129 gr Hornady Interlocks for $400 😳😳. That’s $80/box for Hornady soft point projectiles. Absolutely crazy!

I understand capitalism, making a profit, supply and demand, etc, but asking 3x what they are new is laughable!

Dark forces drive this market, political and medical. Sellers are eager to take advantage of the situation, and buyers are induced to fall for it by fear.

Don't buy it. I have seen trap loads for $28 a box, and 22LR for $120 a brick. I could let go of some of my accumulated supply, but refuse to throw gas on the fire. Hopefully things will get better in the future as more people refuse to play the game. Even if you can afford it, it's not worth what paying these prices causes.

JMHO.................

They ask a price and see what they get paid. Most people expect their realtor to bring top dollar for their house, and I don't see any $800 model 21's for a reason.....people are out there who want it more than others.

I think it's insane to spend 150 bux a brick on 22 shells, some guys are happy to buy them......all perspective

Asking and selling are 2 different things... IMO, does show some of their character...

Despite the numerous ammo shortages we have had in the past, some people just never looked to stock up.

We all could use an extra box of this or that, but I bet 95% of the guys here in this site will be just fine (for many years) even if they didn’t buy another box of anything for a long time.

When bullet prices are that high, I will just go custom bullets from Hammer. If a regular cup and core is 75% of the price of a good solid custom bullet, to me it is a no brainer. But there are still some good people who are reasonable. I recently got 200 of the 129 interlock for 75 bucks shipped.

I’m definitely not going to buy it. Just trying to figure out where these prices come from?? Start stupid high and come down? Have they seen others sell that high? Gun broker??

I have been to two gunshows in the last 3 weeks. It is like they all got together on Friday and said 150.00 per 1000 for primers. And powder is 80.00 to 100.00 per pound. I never seen anything walking out the door. They can ask for that amount, doesnt mean there going to get it.

Even paying that price, I could still reload for 1/2 the price of factory (if you could find factory)

I ask that often when it comes to pharmaceuticals, where a drug is marked up by many thousands of percentage points ‘all the time’, as opposed to a box of ammunition being marked up 300 - 400% in times like these.


Every day on this side of the ground is a win.
