    went to grab some up .380 and the only place in town was selling it at $69.99 for 20 rounds :eek4:
    Is this normal?

    Shooting other people's reloads FTMFL, as far as I know anyone you buy reloaded ammo from doesn't hold any liability so if your gun blows up in your hand it's your own fault.

    It's not "other people's" style home grown basement reloads. It's a huge commercial reloading company. They buy all the brass from the 3 local bases, reload em, and I've never had a single FTF.

    yeah, not quite. they have to have an ffl ( dont remember which one) to sell reloads and they would have to have a shit load of insurance for that.

    Someone is.... The local NG base is also the state/county weapons qual. location too, so who knows what all's going through there. $11/50 is fine where ever they get it ;-). Plenty of 9mm, .45 and .223, all you can carry. 9mm is $12 a box, .45 $14.

    Why is .380 so expensive?

    It's a conspiracy to make people buy more powerful calibers.:eek3:

    b/c it's by far the hardest caliber to find right now, combined with the rapid increase of people buying mouse guns for CC.

    My guess is that with the higher demand for other calibers, there is less focus on .380 production, making it harder to find and more expensive.
