Heck, I used to buy .223 at $5/box of 20. I'm talking about PMC and not that Russian stuff. Just 12 years ago, I was buying 50 round boxes of WWB 9mm for $5 a box! While I love going to the range, I hate blowing through ammo when it is so hard to come by these days. I bought a few hundred round of .45 ACP and paid almost $.40 a round. At least shot shells still seem to be somewhat reasonable. I'm sure they will start going up as well since they use the same raw materials as other ammo.
The ATF should be a convenience store instead of a government agency!
