What's with the jack in ammo prices lately? Did Bush's war suddenly bring on a shortage of gun powder or something? I've noticed over the last few months that ammo prices are starting to get out of hand in a few places. I won't even use my HP .380 for target shooting anymore as the price on .380 ammo is getting out of hand. The price of .380 ammo was already high enough considering it's availablity and production. This pistol has now been retired to home defense only. The best price I've gotten was at Walmart and that was nearly $30 for a box of 100 rounds of Winchester. That box was nearly 30 cents a round! My local gun stores cheapest .380 ammo I've seen was $14 a box of 50 rds, yet he hasn't carried a box at that price in almost a year. I think his cheapest box now is $16.99! I've also noticed that even .22 ammo is getting pricey in places. As mentioned here before a 550 round box of Federal .22LR HP's have gone up quite a bit in less than a year. A box of this stuff now is $12 at WalMart. Are any of you guys seeing ammo price jumps? Are the companies just getting freakin greedy or what?
