They are coming down a bit, Target USA is at $260 for most name brands that used to cost $180 (or better on sale). However, the selection and availability is up substantially, so maybe prices will be coming down.

For .45acp shooters, Wilson has reloaded 200SWC for $116/400 ($14.50/box).

I’ve heard Target Sports is good but can’t seem to time it right. I’ve been picking up decent deals at Academy Sports

Handload and you don't have that problem. Also a good stress relief for being cooped up.

well after my range time tuesday, i went to the local surplus/survival store.

they now went back to rationing ammo. you could get no more than 500 rds. but the prices are still ok.

the gal there told me they had a run on ammo, since the rioting started.

a couple of online stores i order from, are sold out as well.

seems like it doesn't take too much for panic buying.

See, this doesn't make sense to me. Friends don't shoot friends with cheap 115gr round nose. If you need to shoot a rioter, use a good HP.

If Obama was still in office, then yes, people should have rightfully panicked because rioters take precedence over 2A in his book and they may pass an insane law like, oh I don't know, CA. But Trump will never let that pass, so panic buying of range ammo should hopefully be very temporary.

Availability was just starting to go up and prices down when this nonsense started. Hopefully, in a month or two, we will start edging back to normal again. Maybe the start of the NFL season and fantasy football will distract everyone from rioting.

So I tried to buy two cases of Fed aluminum 115gr from Bass Pro at the nowadays great price of $0.20/rd and by the time I got my CC number in they were out of stock.

So I went to Target Sports and bought a case of 124gr Norma Range. I've never seen it before, anyone here use it? Thoughts?

I bought 2k rounds of Norma 115gr about a month ago and it works, but it does seem to be dirtier than what I am used to and it smokes quite a bit out of my sfx. I probably won't buy anymore unless it's a really good sale.
