The prospect of paying to go look at overpriced goods due to the climate of panic and fear isn't too appealing lately, but it might be interesting to see what desperate folks are willing to pay for stuff.

I'm going unless the weather makes it too unpleasant of a drive from North Ogden.

Hi guys. First Post!

I travel cross country to and from Spanish Fork and I try to catch a show whenever I can.
2013 gun show prices on the East coast were crazy as of last weekend.

Prices for .223 reloads were about $1 to $1.10 per round (mixed brass fmj in plastic bags).
Prices for factory plinkin' ammo was up to $1.50  per round. That's $30 for a box of 20 Federal AE if you could stand to wait in line!
Anything with a M855 pill sold out within the first hour at any price.

9mm was not available as far as I could tell. There seemed to be plenty of .40 in a wide range of price and quality.

From what was reported on the other side of the country, there were no prices because there was no ammo for sale-Sold out before noon. People were literally waiting to haggle with vendors in the parking lot before event setup the next morning :o.

Good luck at crossroads this weekend! I hope the supply chain is sane in SLC.


Edited: Bad at math!

I will be there selling targets and flashlights.  I will also be selling some used overpriced aluminum AR-15 mags for a friend.  Also thinking of selling some of my personal stash of .45 and shotgun shells to cash flow a new scope and rifle. 

If you can don't pay the stupid high prices.  You'll feel really bad afterward but it may be 6-12 months before things get back to normal.

At the show in January a case of .223 was $470. Case of 9mm reloaded was $200 and .40 reloads were $260.

I'll report ammo prices when I setup our booth on Friday.   Give you a sneak peak on pricing.

I will be there helping out the out with the NAGR booth. I will also be looking out for the lesser popular (non AR) weapons. I am always looking for ammo, but not at inflated and panic prices. I noticed on Guns America and Gun Broker, the AR prices had started to drop a bit. I am sure it will take some time to get back to a more normal pricing environment. Probably never go back to what is was a couple of years ago. I hope the Beer and hot pretzels are not panic priced. ::)

Was that $470 a case of reloads or factory stuff? That's a steal in this market!

I feel like the price creep is going to spread from the coasts inward like a bad zombie movie. Hopefully there will be ammo on the shelves by the time I make it back next month.

I hoped prices were cooling down, but then I saw these:

Would you mind checking prices for .22lr while you're there? I can't find any at the box stores.

On the ammo prices, those were all reloads.  Like I said, they'll go quickly.  I'll update everyone with pricing of ammo tomorrow once I'm done setting up.

I'm heading towards PA, all the Walmarts are tapped out.
Gunbroker listings for 22lr dont' look too promising right now.

What are prices like on the shelves in Ogden?

A case of CCI Blazer is $277 for 22lr.  I think it's like 5000 or 6000 rounds.  I couldn't read the label.
