Manufacturers say they're producing as much ammunition as they can, but many gun store shelves are empty and prices keep rising.
That's funny, because right before I saw this article I had just checked ammoseek.com to catch up on current prices.
5.56 is running right at 48 cents a round on the low end. I quit checking earlier this year when it was at 77 cents a round because there was no way in hell I was going to pay that, so I don't know just where it peaked before it started to come back down.
It was at 27 cents a round before the election and all this covid bullshit started, so it's still got a ways to go.
