With ammo prices through the roof, many gun owners are wondering when the nightmare will end. Experts are now weighing in with insights about why prices are so high and when we can expect them to stabilize.

The Truth About Ammo Prices
Ammo shortages are very real right now. 2020 was already more than bad enough, but the truth is, 2021 is even worse. This is creating a demand rush which is, in turn, increasing the shortages of ammo and their prices.
At this point, we have to look at whether ammo prices will go back down with a critical eye and objective point of view. Based on past patterns, it’s possible to see ammo does go in cycles and prices will eventually go back down, but that point has not yet been reached.
If anything, you’re going to be paying at least 20% to 40% more for ammo by the end of this year than you paid in 2019 when prices were basically “normal.” The new normal is outrageously expensive ammo.

Part of the reason we’re short on ammo in this country is Biden’s ban on Russian-sourced ammo. This ensures the price tags keep being very high; it was especially bad news for online retailers who sell common Russian rounds, like Barnaul and Tula.
You can especially expect 7.62×39 and 9mm Luger ammo to be low, as well as numerous other varieties. Biden has made sure of that in his bizarre trade war with Russia.
Biden and his regime have an ongoing anti-gun ideology and they also know many first-time gun buyers are coming up in America, with record purchases.
Cracking down on Russian ammo serves the dual purpose of further isolating and stigmatizing Russia, while also making it more difficult for gun owners to actually arm themselves.
Little bird told me ammo prices will shoot to new highs next year. Get your ammo while it's "cheap".

The Bottom Line about Ammo Prices in America
Don’t look for ammo to go down in price any time soon. This country’s government and federal bureaucracies are feeding into a vicious economic cycle that’s made it very hard to get affordable ammo.
That’s not going to decrease at all by the end of this year. In fact, as I noted, it’s only going to increase. At this point, you may one day look back on these days of November as relatively cheap, compared to prices in one month or even six months.
As inflation continues to grow and ammo continues to be in high demand, prices are going to keep being sky high. Respond to this as best you can and make wise buying decisions.
When your own government is trying to cripple your basic rights and bloating the economy beyond recognition, it’s important to be smart and think ahead.
