Price per round question - 9mm?

Recommended Posts

Howell Gun Works was selling a case of American Eagle 124gr FMJ for ~$200 before this mess started. Last time I was in there (~2 months ago) it was ~$250. I think you'd be lucky at that price now, if you could find it.

I'm kicking myself for not buying more reloading components when it was in stock. My idea at the time was to buy small qty as a test, then stock-up. Boy was that a stupid plan. I should've stocked up then, could've always sold if reloading didn't work out for me.

You had no way of knowing the virus was about to be unleashed on us.

I just checked my last TSUSA receipt for 9mm from early 2019...sixteen cents a round. Those were the days. Now my wife understands why all those heavy boxes were delivered way back when...

I think I remember getting it even less than that about a year or so ago, when there was a glut. Federal had a Black Box rebate going, and I think it ended up being like $6 a box. Ha... my wife thought I was having an affair with the UPS guy too, at that time...  :ok:

Honestly you should still look to stock up when you can.

Primers are the thing now that I can't get hold of, but when they pop up I'll grab some.

Question: is wolf ammo that terrible that I can buy 500 rds 115grain steel case for $200? 

That's 40 cents per round.

In normal times you'd probably pay 18 cents per round.

It's not great ammo.

Its steel cased, it's usually cheaper on average by a couple cents a round. 

Wolf(gold) brass cased is pretty good plinking ammo, but it's normally in line or on the slightly cheaper side of any brass cases ammo.

The best I ever did on 9mm was just under .15/round on TSUSA Prime Ammo. And then yes, with the Black Box rebate program it was even less. Of course there was a limit to that rebate, which I hit. 

And now I'm glad I bought the HST I wanted when it was all on sale for .40/round. :p

I just looked on the TSUSA page and 9mm Gold Dot is in stock still for .80/round. So they have it and they're not gouging. That's what it was six months ago, along with HST off-sale.

Then I looked at the 9mm out-of-stock items, and they're listing them at .16, .17 etc. Faint hope when they come in!

I feel guilty of blowing through 300rounds of 9mm147g.....

 

Nope.....   

 

Want to ban guns...ban ammo and make it too expensive to shoot....

 

You don't reload?  Too tedious?    My time is worth more than that?   Its boring...?

 

I have inexpensive range days..and will for years to come.....

There's  the Oaks gun show the last weekend of this month you should find ammo there but I'm sure at a premium price ,  I would say at around $250 a case  i would if i were you buy a lb of powder box of primers and cheap press even if its a single stage just to start with brass is still cheap and there's bayou bullets to get coated bullets and start learning reloading.

Thanks for the lead. I just placed an order. They say they're currently working on a four week backlog, but they haven't raised prices. 3000 rounds of 145gr 9mm for $241.00 to my door.

@kc17   What are you short on or missing to reload??  Ive been successful finding components..  Cheyenne in bordentown had powders in stock a week or so ago.. i didnt ask about primers though; im well stocked up on primers..  Brass is still easy and everywhere.

I just orderer 9mm 124gr plated and 38/357 158gr plated from Xtreme bullets. And ordered .224 55 Gr. Full Metal Jacket Boat Tail Bullets from rmrbullets...   All at pre-covid riots prices and free shipping at xtreme..

That sounds very high to me.. Right before the covid/riot price increases, i got wolf/tula steel case 9mm delivered to my front door for 136$ per 1000 round case from sgammo.com

Right this moment, I have the least amount of bullets. Once this order comes in I'll have the least amount of primers. Cheyenne only had powder as of last Friday.
