I hvaen't noticed a huge rise either......Swede's still cost me about $25 a box, and .35 Whelen for my dad about $40. Been like that for as long as I've been interested in hunting.

I ordered bullets, and five boxes of 30-30 shells from Cabela's yesterday. Both had a price increase. Sales person said it was due to metal price increases? Tom.

I have a 280 Rem and a 7x57 mauser both prices went way north. I did buy the Rem core locks for the Mauser and they were $21 dollars a box. I think they were $12 to $15 not to long ago.
I checked out some web sites to make sure. Horandy ammo is still in the low $20 range. Thinking about trying it. If it shoots well I am going to buy a case.

Shotgun sabots went up a whole lot too. Some of the premium slugs went from 13-14 per box of 5 to 17-18 bucks!

judging from my old manager (more or less) job at a sign company it seems everything is going up. we had to raise our prices about 10-15% last year just to keep up.

With a name like "Canman1", I'm assuming you are Canadian and talking about Canadian dollars, right? What's the exchange rate?
