    ammo price shock

    Hi all
    yesterday i went to sportsman aka Litts for some reloading stuff (my local rfd's are almost dry of bullets) i was quoted 33 for a box of 6mm 87gr vmax i almost fell over . i tend to bulk buy and its been nearly two yrs since i needed ammo and then the 87gr vmax were 16 per box .

    how much are you guys paying for bullets.


    regards............neil

    I went to the local shop to pick up a box of A-Max Match (6.5/140) for a friend the other day and they were $35/100. When the dealer saw I wasn't buying he cut the price to his cost which was $21 a box. I took them for my friend's sake but later got thinking: a 75% markup??? Then I got mad .~Muir

    Try moving to north Scotland....powder cases and bullets not only in short supply but also expensive.

    Bulk buying has paid off though as I can reload (6.5x55) for between 12.5 and 18.60 per box and that takes into account the cost of all

    Round /box (20)

    Nosler 100 18.60
    Nosler 120 18.40
    Hornady 129 SP 13.00
    Hornady 129 SST 14.70
    Sierra Gameking 140 12.50
    Hornady 140 SP 12.92
    Hornady 140 SST 15.30

    The last bullets I brought were the other week when I picked up a box of Speer 120 grain .25 cal for the 25-06 and then cosr 28.48 he had one more box which I phoned and asked him to hold for me. Prices have shot up in recent months

    2.5% for increase in VAT.

    1 % for increase in National Insurance on staff wages.

    Mark these up 50% if you are working as a sustainable business...

    Ahhh unless your an RFD you cannot have expanding bullets delivered by post of carrier as they're too dangerous don't ya know You can buy as amny Match bullets as you like or can afford but not expanding ones. Don't forget that expanding ones also count against your ammunition quota even as componants! Thanks to our stupid guidelines and rules we won't get into the Police ideas on it
