I’m back again with more ammo pricing data. I own an online hunting retail business (FoundryOutdoors.com) so I write down the ammo pricing numbers every few days on Ammoseek since ammo makes up a big part of our business. Needless to say, it’s been a painful year for our ammo sales with limited inventory available.
Since the previous update in June 2021, we saw a big drop across the board in Cost Per Round prices from June through August, only to see a return to higher levels in the beginning of September, presumably due to increased demand from hunting season.
Several calibers saw 25%+ CPR price increases in August alone, specifically 308 Win and 7.62x39mm. Other calibers such as 380 Auto, 9mm, and 22LR saw more muted increases, likely due to the fact that manufacturers have prioritized the production of those calibers during the pandemic, leading to increased supply; the fact that these calibers are not typically used for hunting has likely helped keep demand levels steady as well.
Between the beginning of September and now, we saw price decreases of 5-20% across the board, which means in most cases the CPR is still higher than the lowest prices we saw in July/August by 5-10%.
I have also spoken with several of the largest national ammo distributors who, unfortunately, agree on an outlook of limited ammo inventory and elevated prices well into 2022. The data presented here aligns with that outlook, but perhaps with a glimmer of hope since prices are currently trending downward once again.

The large viewport of the CRD will provide ample sight picture clarity during one or two eyes open operation. The lightweight design of the CRD ensures the optic will not impede the function of the user or the platform and the RMR footprint compatibility enables the Atibal CRD to fit a wide array of slide cuts and mounting plates from a large variety of manufacturers.
