    I was at the Gun shop this weekend and the dealer provided me with some literature from Remmington. Staring March 1st Remmington is raising the prices on ALL of its ammunition an average of 10%. According to the literature provided this cost increase is due to the rising price of the raw materials (copper, lead, brass).

    The dealer indicated that as soon as Remmington hikes their prices all the other manufactures will follow suite.

    Might be time to stock up on ammo and reloading components.

    Any one else see this?

    Nothing to do with the fact that Remington is a couple million in the hole.:boohoo:

    Interesting! Good info. Yep, I'm going to stock up then!

    One thing is for sure! You can never have too much ammo sitting around! :sniper:
