Ammo prices

I have been offered a princely sum for some of my 44 and 45 ammo. What are people paying by the box(50) or shooters lot (250)? I looked up some sites online and got their prices. But often wrote that they were sold out. So what is the real price?

Thanks in advance.

go to calguns.net - since you are in CA. There is an ammo discussion area there. I handload all mine - but even powder and primers have gone up.

.45 ACP is going for about .30 per round here; same for .223, I picked some up at the range this morning. The problem of course is finding it. It looks like manufacturers are starting to meet demand again, you might want to make your deal soon.

I bought a couple of link belts of .223 a few years back at a gun show to dismantle and use for target shootin'. I still have the tracers in case CA attacks us in the dark. Go to a range. Sometimes reloaders post excess inventory for sale.

So what element of Fear, Uncertainty, Confusion and Dread is actually causing this run on ammo? There are no issues which would make a requirement for excess ammo necessary and there are no pending bills in either house to change law to make this an issue.

So what is the fuel for this six month long run on ammo?

In CA it is AB862 which passed and is going up the chain - limit of 50 rounds a month to purchase. Nationwide - look at Chicago and Obama's stand - if you need a better picture - get better glasses. Chicago court's just decided on incorporation - and will be going to the SCOTUS this year more than likely.

Is this some sort of amendment to the rape bill?

AB 862, as introduced, Knight. Sexual assault.
Existing law establishes various sexual assault offenses,
including the offense of rape.
This bill would make a technical, nonsubstantive change to the
provisions establishing the offense of rape.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: no.
State-mandated local program: no.

Sorry, AB962.

Definetly a slippery slope.

This bill would establish a program administered by the Department
of Justice for licensing handgun ammunition vendors, as specified.
The bill would establish a database maintained by the department
to serve as a registry of handgun ammunition vendors.
This bill would require that commencing July 1, 2010, unless
specifically excluded, no person shall sell or transfer more than 50
rounds of handgun ammunition in any month unless he or she is
registered as a handgun ammunition vendor, as defined. The bill would
also require these vendors to obtain a background clearance for
those employees who would handle ammunition in the course and scope
of their employment. The bill would require the Department of Justice
to maintain a registry of registered handgun ammunition vendors, as
specified. Violation of these provisions, as specified, would be a
misdemeanor.
By creating a new crime, this bill would impose a state-mandated
local program.
The bill would also provide that no retail seller of ammunition
shall sell, offer for sale, or display for sale, any handgun
ammunition in a manner that allows that ammunition to be accessible
to a purchaser without the assistance of the retailer or employee
thereof.
The bill would further provide that handgun ammunition may only be
purchased in a face-to-face transaction and only if certain
conditions exist.
Existing law generally regulates what information is required to
be obtained in connection with the transfer of ammunition.
This bill would, subject to exceptions, commencing July 1, 2010,
require certain ammunition vendors to obtain a thumbprint and other
information from ammunition purchasers, and would require submission
of that information to the Department of Justice, as specified. A
violation of these provisions would be a misdemeanor.
This bill would provide that a person enjoined from engaging in
activity associated with a criminal street gang, as specified, would
be prohibited from having under his or her possession, custody, or
control, any ammunition. Violation of these provisions would be a
misdemeanor.
The bill would prohibit supplying or delivering, as specified,
handgun ammunition to prohibited persons, as described, by persons or
others who know or by using reasonable care should know that the
recipient is a person prohibited from possessing ammunition.
Violation of these provisions is a misdemeanor with specified
penalties.
By creating new crimes, this bill would impose a state-mandated
local program.
The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local
agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the
state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that
reimbursement.
This bill would provide that no reimbursement is required by this
act for a specified reason.
Vote: majority. Appropriation: no. Fiscal committee: yes.
State-mandated local program: yes.
