I forgot that I was going to the range tomorrow, so while I was out I stopped at Wallyworld to pick up some White Box ammo to shoot. As I was chatting with the salesperson, they informed me that prices would be increasing on July 1st.
Towards the end of June, I bought 2 boxes of 100 rounds of white box .45 ACP for $29 and change each from Walmart. A week ago, I bought another 2 boxes of the same from a different Walmart for the same price. The clerk at the last store said that prices would be going up, but slowly. I may have to pick up a few more boxes before slowly becomes a reality.
The same box of 100 from Sportsman Warehouse a few miles away was $38.
I've been seeing many commercials lately about the meteoric rise in the prices of precious metals. Maybe this is partially manifesting itself in the form of higher prices for ammo?
