Expensive? Yes, but I don’t know of any place that has it where it’s not expensive. So if the question is “Where?” rather than “Where can I find it at the prices it was a year ago?” that’s one place.


I agree. It appears more than a few people regularly drive around looking for ammo at big box stores and at best end up with a couple of boxes per the limit if they are lucky. However to get a case doing it that way probably takes abut 20 trips assuming you "score" 50 percent of the time. That's a whole lot of driving/gas, time, and frustration including probably standing in line before store opens to get equivalent a case of ammo rather than just paying more and getting it delivered to your place.

I have had multiple orders backordered at Optics Planet and some go back as far as late August. The orders have been trickling slowly in and I got an email yesterday that 500 rounds of Win 115gr/9mm was shipping and this was my August 22 order.
OP has very slow shipping times even when lots of inventory out there...good thing is that all my backorders are locked in at the price when ordering and this 500 round order cost me $119.20 shipped to my door.
Federal still has 9mm on their website and their inventory is updated often so you have to keep checking back if none in stock.

Again, SG Ammo has been showing 9mm ammunition in stock. And again, again, not inexpensive, but available.

Yup, indeed it's there, averaging right around 70 cents per round. Same sorts of loads that we were just selling at 40 cents per (115gr Blazer Brass - limit one).

They also have some supersonic 300BLK which is what brought me there in the first place. A little more than double the price per round that we were last selling the stuff for. Oh well...

That sounds about right for Optics Planet.
I believe the term to describe them is "Drop Shipping".

I have an order placed with Lawmen's since June, I have checked a few times they say same thing: sorry it is taking so long. I'm fine with it as long as it gets here. I actually bought it for my MIL but ended up finding her some from somewhere else, its only a small order 150 gold dots and 300 Speer TMJ.

And again, SG Ammo has been showing some in stock periodically, including just now.

I realize that the original question included the caveat “… that is not price gouging?” but if the prices have been at a certain level for 10 months and will probably only go up in the future, when does it stop being “gouging” and become the norm?

Is this buy open to your SF Brethren?

I don’t buy the story that most vendors say about not gouging on their ammo...I have been buying direct from Federals website and last order was Fed 124gr and 115gr range ammo for $22.99 a box or $.46 a round. If Federal sells to the general public for that price I would think that vendors get it for less than that.
There is a 2 box limit on each gr 9mm range ammo so I usually get 115gr, 124 gr, .22,or 22mag so my order is over $149.00 and then it is free shipping.

I've purchased Federal/American Eagle at $14.99 a box of 50 retail within the last month. That's just a fraction under $.30 a round. So that would indicate Federal is doing a bit of gouging of their own for direct consumer sales. I purchased from a local fleet supply store and I'm sure they made their usual mark up on it. Customers around here would never step foot in the door again if they dared to price gouge on ammo.
