It's not just inflation. It's the huge increase in gun purchases over the last year and a half. Even though that's tapered off, we're still at much higher than 2019 levels of monthly buying from all indications. Even if a big chunk of those buyers don't shoot much, the increased numbers are significant. At the same time, there are more labor issues than ever, and policy uncertainty both fuels fear and makes gun makers do a lot of defensive things to prepare for the worst, while dealing with labor shortages.I know I’m preaching to the choir, but before all the nonsense a 1k rd case of Agulia, Winchester, Privi Partizan, etc..of 9mm fmj brass would cost me $170-$180. A 1k case of brass 556 was $299. Right at this start of the nonsense the price jumped overnight to $200-$220 for 9mm, $500 for 556. Then it became ridiculous from there. 9mm More than doubled and is currently holding at double the price. 556 is just insane.
I’m tired of it being justified as inflation and rising cost of materials. It’s not. I feel if it landed and leveled out at $250 and $400 respectively, which is still quite of an adjustment, it would be more inline with increased cost, inflation, whatever. Enough is enough now. I’m losing hope of it ever going down even close to what it was.
Monday rant over lol.
I see that applications to law schools are up this year. That's indicative of the 2021 New Order.
