Eh... call me when it gets back down to $0.32/round or so.

Take a look at page 7 of this PDF discussing Army budget allocation by caliber for fiscal years 2008-2015. If the Army does what it plans to do, there is about to be a lot of excess capacity in the ammunition market.

Short summary of the PDF:

Army purchased/will purchase 1.01 billion rounds of 5.56x45 in FY09. They plan to purchase only 564 million in FY10.

Army purchased/will purchase 349 million rounds of 7.62x51 in FY09. They plan to purchase only 81 million in FY10.

On the flip side, purchases for Foreign Military Sales (FMS) will increase from 0, to 300 million rounds; but it isn't clear how much of that is 5.56 or 7.62x51 and how much is 7.62x39 or other calibers.

Also, FY2010 starts October 1, if I remember correctly.

Then agian, I ain't into bashing the sellers. If someone's stupid enough to pay that.....

I paid $423 including shipping from Cabela's for .223 softpoints. Expensive, but I figure I can pay that much once, as it secured me 1,000 rounds of brass (Actually probably about 800, due to loss by semi-auto).

Then again, that was softpoints.

The local store has 1,000 rounds of Fiocchi FMJ's for $360 per thousand. Not bad if I say so myself. better than the prices before the shortage.
