I just realized it could be a good reference tool for new shooters, or shooters new to a caliber, to know what “normal” pricing was on various calibers. My suggestion for a standard would be everyday “good” pricing prior to the pandemic and outside of any temporary spikes. Not the best price you’ve ever seen, not what you paid in 1958. I’m going to start with some common calibers with which I’m familiar, but there are others that I haven’t shot very much so I don’t know what pricing was, and/or should be when(if) things settle down. Most of my Ammo is purchased online, so that’s my reference. Local prices have always run a bit higher as is expected. My references are all brass cased FMJ.
9mm .20/round has been pretty standard for probably 10 years or more.
.22LR bulk 05/round. Premium(ie MiniMags).09/round
.22 mag .20-.25/round
7.62 NATO .70/round
What I don’t know because I haven’t bought much or in a long time:
Let me know if y’all thing this is useful, if you agree with my estimates, and if there are calibers you can help with.
Several on line sources had .380 for .20 per round as late as Feb 20202.
Milsurp, older and current, 7.62 x 51 has been around .50-.55 for years.
I am blown away on what prices are being asked for ammo right now, if you can find it.
