Since the world changed drastically in March, ammunition has been in short supply. As the demand for ammo increased due to stockpiling and the many new gun owners, manufacturing slowed due to lockdowns, work restrictions, and material shortages. Primers in particular have been in shortest supply, causing popular ammunition prices to skyrocket.
While popular self-defense calibers like 5.56, .223, and 9mm have doubled in price per round, surprisingly not all ammunition have increased in price. Many hunting rounds such as .308 and .450 Bushmaster have even gone down in price. Check out some of our newest blog posts about 50 Beowulf, 6.5 Grendel vs. 308, and AR10 vs. AR15.
