Yep and it aint gonna get any better in a while.

Last year in Oct I bought 20 bags of shot at $19.50 per bag.

Yesterday at Basspro it is $52.50. PLAIN OLE LEAD BALLS.

Thank you Chinese and our political leaders over many years.

I can blame them for myriad other idiocies, but I don't see how "our political leaders" had much to do with the world price of lead.

That's the result of China's and India's gluttony for raw material as they claw their way into the big-boy arena of global industrialism.

Have you priced a 250-foot roll of copper 12/2 w/ground Romex lately?

A short while back it was less than $30 everywhere. It's now well over $100.

Are there other factors that a contributing to the price increase for ammo and components? Or is China & India industrialization the main culprit? Is this something that will ever go back to normal? Or should I just get used to the idea that the price of ammo now is what we'll see forever?

The last few years of the Iraq/Afghanistan conflicts haven't helped.
