I bought two sardine cans of Wolf 55 gn @ $90 each about 2 weeks ago and the price has jumping to $113.95 per sardine can ( Club price) Yes, it's 25% markup already! I thought it was going to be effective Sept.1 but the C&*^Suckers have already jumped the gun. Looks like another round of ammo whoring will begin. Sportsmans Guide. F*&^ you! Infinity ++! A*&holes!
My sincere apologies to the Mod folks!

While I'll agree that Sportsman's Guide sucks, I don't blame them when they raise their prices.

They are in business to make money, without regard for the customers. People will keep paying their higher prices, so they'll keep raising them.

It's simple economics.

Most certainly Economics plays into it but Sept 1 was the time for the price increases. Unfortunately, I'm not privy to how well the honor system works among the internet ammo vendors. I can only hope that integrity still exist as for Sportsmans Guide they have none!

Actually, Federal, Winchester, et al are raising prices 9-1-07, but Wolf raised their on 7-1-07 if I remember the posts at the time. So, SG did us a favor by waiting until August to raise prices.

As I recall, the Sept 1st increased pertained to ATK/CCI manufactured ammunition, not SSI ammunition.

I think Sportsman's Guide has shown that they could care less about integrity. But, they're able to raise their prices whenever they see fit... and people will keep paying.

Sir! Unfortunately, that cannot be disputed!

Don't forget that to purchase that more expensive ammo dealers will have to raise their already owned stock to afford more. I sorta expected the price hike to hit a week or two before the actual ATK hike.

If we ALL would just stop buying it for a couple two or three months, the prices would fall.

Only if, only if! Noble thought!

flannagan_bryan, no disrespect but what makes you think that your buying power can equal theirs to the point of making such a bold assessment. Sometimes backdoor deals are made because of being the 800 lbs gorilla.

Why are ammo prices going up on Sept 1? Is this across the board?

+1 they are normally cheaper on wolf than most others. Sure sometimes they backorder it and then never send it out. Hasn't happened to me yet. Ammo prices everywhere still suck though. Bryan, I think you are a stand up guy for admitting another vendor is cheaper on a certain product. AIM rocks anyway.
