    Bullet prices have gone up just a bit.

    Bullet prices appear to have gone up just a bit over the years. Back when I hunted I used to use quite a few Sierra 180 gn Sptzer BT bullets for practice and actually venison harvesting. Only have a few left on the shelf and I noticed the marked price , when I bought them was $6.40. Just for the halibut I checked online to day for the same bullets, which are now $42.99 and out of stock/no backorder anywhere I checked. I don't hunt anymore so not a problem. Just thought it might be of interest to some.

      Almost makes you want to invest in swaging equipment, doesn't it? Bet their extruded component prices are coming up too. Haven't perused the Corbin pages in a while.

          When I started reloading in the early 70's, primers were 79 cents/100 and bullets and powder were around the $7-8 mark. How times have changed.

            About that same time I smoked and cigarettes were $1.10 per carton.

              Holy hell. They're nearly $100 a carton now for "good" stuff!
