Will we now see ammo prices start to come down? Or is the damage already done and people will continue to fear political activists taking away gun rights?

There are only 2 enemies to firearms,
Rust and politicians

LOL.....

this hasn't been about fear of political action for a long time. Those worries subsided over a year ago. It's now become more about fear of our fellow gun owners. Fear that they will make it to the ammo counter before us, so we have to buy everything up before someone else does.

Ammo prices are already through the floor. I predict ammo/firearm prices will continue to drift down until the 2016 Elections loom and a strong gun-grabber shows signs of doing well in them/ or we have another unfortunate shooting incident.

Price of ammo hasn't been a problem locally. Our local dealer has never gouged us. Yes, the price went up, but normally. I have two bricks of .22lr. One I purchased 3 years ago and one I purchased this summer. 3 years ago I paid $25.50 for 500 rd brick of hollow points. This summer I paid $26.95 for the same type and brand. I would consider that normal price increase.

Our problem has simply been availability. They don't always have it in stock and when they did have it, it was small boxes and limited to 3 boxes. I watched and waited. They finally had bricks, but a limit of two. I didn't need two, I only picked up one.

Ammo is very expensive in Alaska, even at Cabela's, Walmart, and Sportsman Warehouse. A box of 20 rounds of Barnes 225-grain VOR-TX (the one with the blue tip) for the .338WM costs $72.00 at Walmart. It's almost impossible to find .22LR ammo. But there is a lot of .223, .45 ACP, .38 +p, .40mm, 9mm, and so on.

Why not order over the internet?

Some shipping restrictions relating to hazardous materials apply when ordered that way, and this makes it more expensive. I just reload what I need, and every now and then buy a box or two of ammo. Reloading is not really cheap these days, but is still cheaper than factory ammo.
