What are they asking now for .223 ammo...

at the gun show's?

I still have my 7 box's of Wolf "milatary" I tried to sell back in Febuary, maybe I should try to sell them again, but way over the $30 for all 7 box's I was asking before. I really don't want to rip anybody off, but hey if I can make a little more gambling money, to heck with it.

$12 for a box of 30? That's better than when I checked it when I first started looking. It was a dollar a round. That was right in the middle of the panic unfortunately.

I just got 100 round boxes of Federal .223 for $34 also. Picked up three. Starting to become a trend again.

Thanks for you responses

This whole thing of this is, it's a big joke.

I don't care weather I sell them or not. I'm just humoring the topic!

TBS, I'll take $45 for the 7 box's FTF in NW Vegas.

I still have all 139 rounds for $45.

I have roughly 1300rds of various factory ammo plus almost that much in reloads. I still have plenty of brass,bullets,powder to reload at least 1000 more so Im in the waiting till the price gets more like normal before I buy any ammo.

Mike Irwin has started a thread in the General Discussion forum titled The "Where is everything?" thread -- guns, ammo, primers, powder, etc... That's the one, central thread where discussions of the availability of these things should now be taking place. Feel free to continue the conversation there.
