I know, roll my own
I know, 2022 ammo prices

I’m probably looking for 250rnds?
Any help would be appreciated

Any that I’ve seen online recently was FULL ON RETARD PRICING.

I enjoy shooting .38 special but have really cut back last couple years.  Good luck finding any at a decent price.  SGammo has PMC for $34 a box of 132 fmj.  I doubt you would be able to find 158 lead round nose or SWC.

Easiest round in the world to reload.

.38 Special plinking ammo was expensive, at least compared to 9mm, before COVID.  These days, it’s outrageous.  A couple revolver-shooting friends have long grumbled over prices.

I’ve seen Norma for about $23-$25/box recently.  Good luck.

Norma $25/50, free shipping with $49 order, and 5% off if you sign up for their newsletter first.

Works well for me and the flat tip fmj is much better than lrn if you need it for defense.  $32/50 for hollowpoints.

Even reloaded at today's prices it doesn't seem cheap, about 20 CPR. What was new brass 38spl per round pre-panic? I only bought 9mm and 22 in bulk back then, and remember $180 delivered for 1K blazer brass 9mm and $23 bricks of CCI SV in 2019.

Been shooting a box of Privi Partizan 158gr SWC through a snubbie and it has got to be the dirtiest 38 ammo ever. Barrel leading is pretty awful. Not even a tornado brush is doing anything. I guess I'm going to have to go to the store and buy some Chore Boy pads.

4 new .38/357 revolvers since Thanksgiving so I figure I should drop a few hundred bucks on ammo when I spent like $3k on guns lol

38 is never super cheap like 9mm. I'm sure there were some $.30 a round deals but many times it was $.40 and up from what i remember. 357 is twice as bad most of the time. I've stockpiled a bunch of components becuase of it.

I hear ya, I added two boxes of it to an order I made a while back. Was a gut punch that adding a few boxes of range ammo added that much

I sometimes feel bad for those that don't know the joy of having a local Bi-Mart.

Its the only place I buy ammo anymore. Its pretty much always in stock and they removed the limits. I got 200 rounds of Rem UMC 230gr JHP 45AARP for .62cpr yesterday. Some 45LC Critical Defense too.

I passed on the opportunity to get several boxes of 100 rd 38 spl WWB at my local Academy for $64.99 ea.

Oh, well.  They’re all gone now.
