Although this blog is really targeted to concealed carry holsters, I occasionally do digress a bit to talk about other happenings in the shooting industry. In this case, the topic concerns ammo costs.
According to data released during the 2011 SHOT Show, ammo manufacturers are planning to raise prices effective 4/1/11. This increase is allegedly due to material increases in the various metals using in ammo production. At the end of the day, I suspect that it has more to do with supply and demand. At this point in time, there's a significant demand for ammo, so the price goes up. Simple as that.
I wouldn't read anything more into it other than increased profits for ammo makers. I also won't personally be going crazy buying ammo in massive quantities. I will stock up on the calibers I need in a "reasonable" amount.
