Prices in the Western states have dropped! I travel for work and have picking up small caliber ammo in small towns. Three out of fours stops I made in towns of less than 4,000 people, yielded 22LR, 22 Magnum and 9mm ammo for less than one year ago!
Best way to keep driving prices down is not to pay the premium prices. Also, I have made lower offers for ammo on classifieds and people are motivated to sell when they sense the shift from more demand to more supply and less demand. Many folks are worried they’ll be stuck with ammo they bought to resell at a nice profit!
