Ammo prices, then and now
Aboit a year ago, I was paying about 28 cents a round for Wolf Gold in .223. It is a decent non-ferrous range ammo. These days, I see the price has more than doubled from many suppliers.

I just started shooting 7.62x39 in a new rifle and am paying 46 cents a round for name brand (PPU or S&B) non-ferrous range ammo. What was this quality of ammo selling for a year ago?

What are your experiences with the prices on rifle ammo.

prices are up again due to the corona panic....

non mean Iron free?
or do you mean Pb free?....maybe non cupric?

only thing I know of that's ferrous in most ammo (unless it's an AP round) is the primer anvil.

Ferrous as in containing iron products, like steel. Ranges around here aren’t fans of ammo containing steel.
