I keep hearing rumors about how all of it is getting shipped to the middle east or how the UN is interfering with international ammo sales. These rumors always seem to get started by the big ammo shippers. Since this "ammo shortage" has started I've been able to walk into Sportsman's Warehouse and, if they have it in stock, it's always been $142 per case. Their prices haven't moved so why have everyone else's doubled? Maybe SW has some kind of contract and their distributors are just giving them the minimum amount that they can get away with. I go into SW at least once a week and at least once every two weeks they have several cases of 7.62x39 sitting there. I can understand why they're selling out so fast when it costs you around $180 a case to get it from anyone else right now. So are the major ammo distributors just trying to bring up the market or is SW just THAT slow to catch on to the increase in pricing?
