My brother told me that he heard, at an Ohio gun show today, that starting in April the price of ammo and related items (bullets, brass) is going up 7-11%. Has anyone else heard about the cost of the metals going up?

The hardware is the same, but the software is vastly different.
There could be some increase with copper being a precious metal, but I would guess that it just may be part of an all around general price increase. Inflation is pretty much inevitable in this economy, or any economy for that matter. It is just a matter of time.
The President does not like me taking the role of an economist, so I will just say that this is my opinion!
However, I would be more inclined to agree with handgonnetoter and b2tall: could just be a ploy to get people to buy MORE NOW.
Another thing to consider, with all the money the fed is printing inflation will kick in here soon if it hasn't already.
