Refer to My Cabelas thread. 1000 rounds for $75. by case I assume you mean 500 rounds? I picked up my 1000 rounds and I have not looked back. I have looked at the ridiculous amount of ammo and giggled like a little school girl on a pink bike seen Here. LOL

As a point of comparison...
what has the price of gasoline been like int he last few years?

Remember what it was two years ago? See what it is now?

Stuff goes up in price all the time...

Not just ammo...

Barnaul is out of stock until the end of November and has been OOS since summer.

I wonder if the AWB expiration has increased demand?

Once again... and I have said this before many, many times... Zander's has Barnaul ammo by the container full. They are receiveing shipments almost weekly. If your dealer is saying they are our out and there is not any ammo... they are BS-ing you big time.

Zander's calls Barnaul ammo Bear ammo...

I hope this is helpful to someone...

"Bear" refers to a variety of ammo makers.

Barnaul's "Barnaul" ammo has been OOS for months.

I've shot the tightest most consistent groups using Barnaul in my Vepr K.

I can tell you that the lions share of Bear... is made in Barnaul...
in fact... I can tell you that with a huge degree of confidence...

Gigantic in fact...

The price of scrap has doubled and tripled over the past year. The Chinese are apparently buying up scrap metals in a frenzy. Must have something to do with their 10 year plan to invade Taiwan. I know for a fact that the price of cast bullets has almost doubled since last year. 250gr .45 RNFP that I bought for $33-35/thousand are now $60-65/thousand.

The price of scrap steel has tripled. A member of our local club is in metal fabrication. He was going to make up some new targets but the price of the steel went from $160 to $310 per sheet in one week in March. Since then it has jumped again. He has friends that have had the inventory of their scrap yards bought up by "oriental buyers". Talking with one of them, his comment was he couldn't give away the shit for the past 10 years, now he has a waiting list for when he gets stock in.

My brother works at a .gov "glow-in-the-dark" facility. When taking bids for and allocating funds for onsite construction, the site has had to account for the rising metals market. Several contractors refused to sign on an accepted bid because, in the time from bid to acceptance, the materials cost skyrocketed way over the already figured in cost differential.

The fact that were trying to rebuild 2 countries and sending alot of resources there doesn't help either.

We play with all this neat metal stuff, so were going to be affected just like everyone else.

To add... the Chinese are also buying up all the iron ore they can get their hands on... to... make more steel.


I am in the wrong racket.
