There was just a post on the Trump stimulus thread about some ammo on cheaperthandirt.com, .22 LR going for $100 per box of 100. Here in Wisconsin price gouging is raising the price more than 15%. How does a company like Cheaper Than Dirt get away with this? Is it because they're based in Texas and Texas didn't declare a disaster/emergency or whatever? I knew prices were going up, but never though I'd see $1/round for run of the mill .22 ammo.

They are really charging a $1 a round for CCI mini-mag hp .22...? There must be some awfully desperate people out there...

I guess they can charge whatever they want if someone is stupid enough to pay it.

They did this a few years ago. Donít buy anything from them since. Thatís the way to stop price gouging.

I bought 100 CCR .22lr mini mag for $14 the other day at North 40 and thought that was too expensive. Sold out that day though.

On another note I did see another local retailer selling Hornady Black 123gr 6.5 grendel for $36 a box when it's normally $21. Sometimes I think the manufacturers/middle men are price gouging and the end retailer just has to relay the cost. Not always the case though.

right now 100-120 for a 1000 round brick of bulk .22 lr. mini mags are worth about double that but that's it.

Question is, can this sort of gouging be reported to the Attorney General and will they do anything about it?

Too bad I'd feel guilty. I could make 10x my initial investment on Ammo right now.

I don't buy anything from cheaper than dirt any more.

they canceled peoples orders then put the same ammo back up fore sale 50% increase in price on the last ammo shortage.

change the price for new orders but if it was the price when you accepted the order honer that , they have no shame.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

Has anyone priced it at Walmart or Dunham's lately? I can't believe people would pay anything near those prices....
