You can look around for the cheapest ammo prices. I just got 100 rds. of 9mm. 115 Gr. JHP for home and summer self defense for $105 from Georgia Arms. CTD advertises the same thing for a box of 50 rds...............at a $99 price!!!! I know it's still pretty high.......but I don't expect prices to come down anytime soon.
For the ammo producers and component makers, it's a win-win situation. Why should they lower prices.......when there is still plenty of demand???? They're still selling ammo! Most of them are sold out!!!! Bob
