    Default Doesn’t look like ammo prices will be going down anytime soon.

    I double checked to make sure this was not an April Fools joke. Winchester announced that they were raising prices on ammo. I suspect other manufacturers will be doing the same. Something to think about if you are considering selling ammo. I guess this means that even if ammo prices come down they will not be going back to 2019 prices.

    Winchester Announces 2021 Price Increases on Ammunition and Reloading Supplies
    March 23, 2021

    March 22nd, 2021 Winchester ammunition announced an increase in all ammunition prices effective May 1st. The letter from Winchester is below but amounts to a fairly large increase in the cost of ammunition.

    March 22, 2021

    To All Winchester Ammunition Customers:

    Thank you for your commitment to Winchester and Browning Ammunition in support of our legendary products.

    Due to the increased cost inputs for manufacturing ammunition, it is necessary to increase ammunition prices for all shipments, including backorders, beginning May 1, 2021.

    Ammunition will be subject to the following price increases.

    Shotshells + 5%-12%
    22 Magnum Rimfire ammunition + 5%-15%
    Hunting Rifle ammunition + 5%-15%
    All Centerfire Pistol ammunition +8%
    Components +10%
    Primers +25% (Due to our current backorder situation, until further notice, Winchester is not accepting new orders on primers)
    These May 1, 2021 increases will affect all pack sizes, sub-brands, and special make-ups.

    All existing orders and future orders shipped on or after May 1, 2021, will be shipped at the new prices unless you notify us requesting cancellation. Procedures for repricing back and future orders will be issued with new pricelists and programs in the coming weeks.

    Sincerely,

    Matt Campbell

    Vice President, Sales & Marketing

    These price increases should not come as a shock since several manufacturers are increasing ammunition prices. January 5th Vista Outdoors announced a price increase on Federal, Remington, CCI, and Speer ammunition of 3-15 percent. What is might be a surprise to some readers is the percentage of increase on reloading components. Expect all ammunition manufacturers to increase prices over the next few months.
    I hope criminals with ghost guns shoot you and your family. (Abner13 in deleted thread)

    Meh, I'm not happy about it but with gas up 30-40% and the current political climate, I'm actually surprised its not more.

    I wonder what would happen if I raised my prices Just today I had a potential customer
    ask me to do the job as cheap as possible. Its only filling in a 2 x2 ac hole in the side of her house
    but its a half day job which is bullshit anymore because the other half is wasted so its a win win for my guys
    but costs me my profit.

    Federal and others did the same a month or two back. I can see though the need to raise wholesale prices a bit, likely they're paying more in overtime wages, extra PPE/cleaning, primers are short, etc. the percentage range seems reasonable. (Now resellers on the other hand are still garbage.)

    7.62x39 and 5.56 both seem to have come down by around $0.10-0.15/round. Not great by any stretch of the imagination, but better than it was in January.

    I put an order in 9 months ago while prices for 9mm at Streichers were still good. It finally came in...and they honored the total quantity and price.

    Primers are still a bitch to find...

    Damn, kudos to them for not pulling a Sportman Guide and either never honoring or outright cancelling the order.
