It isn't just the price hikes, it is the shrinkage in those packages as well. That shrinkage is averaging 10% less than when I bought it before Biden AND the price has gone up 25-100% (depending on the item). When crappy cuts of beef like chuck roasts now cost almost $10/pound, I do without and eat more chicken - and that has gone up as well. Property taxes have been going up every year, utility costs have gone up every year - mine have doubled since Covid. Yes I reload but even with that, I am not shooting anywhere as much as I used to. Maybe with the weather cooling down some, I pick it up a little.
"I believe that people have a right to decide their own destinies; people own themselves. I also believe that, in a democracy, government exists because (and only so long as) individual citizens give it a 'temporary license to exist'—in exchange for a promise that it will behave itself. In a democracy, you own the government—it doesn't own you."- Frank Zappa
