    Ammo prices are slated to go up as much as %20 across the board tomorrow. Who else stocked up? Sure was hard getting some components today, seems I wasn't the only one with that idea. check out the link.

    Here's how I'm spending some of my nice long weekend to prepare for matches for the next couple of weeks.

    Shit...I didn't realize that was so soon. I'll be going to Walmart later to buy some .22 (for a gun I don't have yet :mamoru:) and some 9mm.

    because ammo manuf. know that you will pay for it. dont buy into the bullshit about the war and metal, etc. sure, metal is going up in cost... but not 50% in the last year. i bought a case of 7.62x39 this time last year for 132 shipped. now its 200 PLUS shipping, even at SPG where i recently got it for 159 shipped. its a fucking conspiracy.

    rising costs isnt a 20% increase every 4 months. thats fucking horse shit.

    So why are you talking about the prices of metals if you don't care about the prices of metals? They haven't doubled in 10 months but neither have ammo costs. Metal prices for ammo components though have more than doubled since 2004 though. I'd guess right off hand I'm paying about 50% more for ammo than 2004. If the costs of everything but the powder has doubled since then I think they're probably making less profit now. Fuel prices are up, energy prices are up for melting metal, metal prices are up. You're claiming there is a conspiracy for higher prices and I'd ask you again why you think that? I see no proof at all.

    Actually lets look in more detail, Olin is a publicly traded company, lets check out some sec filings.
