  • Ammo Gossip

    Just got this in the sales flyer from SG Ammo. Guy is a straight shooter for the most part, and I don't see any blatant hype here, but as always take everything with a grain of salt.


    [QUOTE]As we move in to 2020 I thought I would take a few minutes to gossip with all my newsletter subscribers about what is going on in the industry and how it may effect you, pricing, availability, etc. Demand has been strong and we are seeing some manufacturers come out with less attractive pricing in the 2020 programs. I do not want to name names but it seems that several of the major manufacturers attempting to push up on prices, although approximately 2/3 majority of manufacturers are holding steady at similar prices to 2019, at least on the more popular types of products like 223, 5.56, 9mm, 22LR and most of the basic range ammo. I have seen sharp price increases on hunting ammo in a few brands which seems odd to me but it is happening. I believe that strong supply will offset high demand and hold down prices where they are, at least for the most part, but some increases should be expected. For those people that are loyal to specific brands you may want to look at options to buy other similar brands at better pricing. I expect spotty supply on the products that are the best deals in their class as demand has been very high, especially for 9mm and 223/5.56 ammo. These 2 calibers have really been selling very well, but there are many options that are priced very aggressively compared to anything seen in the past 13 years. It is safe to say we are at a point in the market where it is at the bottom for the most part and any sensible investment made in inventory is unlikely to depreciate due to falling prices. 2020 also brings with it a real chance for a rebound in the market and pricing. We expect high demand to continue through the peak season of February, March and April. High demand may possibly last through the summer and fall seasons until November or longer and the election is settled, as politics and election years tend to amplify demand. I hope my input and details here help you make the best choices for your ammo needs and I wish you all a prosperous 2020.[/QUOTE]

        I don’t think I have ever seen availability so dodgy. I am sure there are many reasons, and I don’t anticipate any quick change.
