Correlation is two fold. One you have had a lot of gun sales in response to uncertainty in the political arena. After the "gun rush" from
oct-april.. the "ammo rush" was in full force to supply the guns sold.
Couple that with Winchester getting the military contract. And you do not see that inexpensive , reliable , U.S. ammo in places like Wal-mart, and
Cabelas. ( Winchester White Box..or WWB)
It seems to be subsiding. (at least for me personally) I can find just about any caliber round for my weapons fairly cheap, and fairly easily. (except
As a matter of fact I shot about 450 rounds at the range today. Various calibers. I wanted to run through some of that Wolf 9mm I picked up.. (stinky)
and test out the Winchester Ranger LEO 147 gr +P ( NOT Stinky)
I just found a coupon for 20% off any purchase at Big 5 ( and it didn't exclude ammo!) So tomorrow morning I am off to big 5 to get that 250 pack of
UMC 9mm for about 65 bucks. Wash, rinse, repeat.
