    Prices rarely, if ever, rescind to 'previous levels'. If one is fortunate to buy 1000rds 9mm for $600, that is now considered reasonable or even a 'deal'. You will never see the $249-$299/ 1000rd ever again.

    Wanna bet?

    Do you know how much 5.56 cost in 2013?
    Do you know how much it cost in 2019?

    It actually cost less in 2019 than it did in 2011.

    It might take another 2 years but it will drop off.

    Barring some crazy legislation (and lets be honest - no shortage of crazy ATM) I am sure this is true.

    Do you remember how low prices were during most of Obama’s Presidency?

    Why would Biden’s admin be different?

    Just another form of inflation.

    Remember I said I would scour the world to try and find new produced ammo and then import it to the USA.

    The best answer we got from any factory is that they are currently back ordered for 2 years.

    So it is not coming down in price anytime soon.

    I know of a government agency that is soon needing to try and order 2.5 million of 5.56, 2,5 M of 7.62 match and 5 mil. of 9mm, I think they are going to have a hard time

    The real question is how much 9mm would you buy if it was $200/1000. I'd be 5 cases in before wife saw the credit card bill. My guess is that's what everyone is thinking....restock to over full to avoid nonsense in the future.
    Did that 20 years ago....so, not an issue now.

    Which assumes many things that no one can know. There is talk of a ban on mail order sales of ammo- like there was from 1968-1986..... There is NO WAY IN HELL that ammo prices will go as low as they were in the past if that happens. You have less competition in the market place all the time too- consolidation of manufacturers and retailers- Walmart closing gun counters etc...Like them or not, they were a "market maker" in many areas for blasting and generic hunting ammo, Remington getting bought....There could be an import ban like 7N6 etc...Now what?

    I'll just say I'm glad that I have what I do and I'm not terribly optimistic things will change for the better in the near term-1-5 years.
