Yes I have a couple of those old yellow box winchester 8mm mauser box's. I remember when Kmart would put remington core-lokts in 243, 270, 308, and 30/06 for $9 a box. They where regular about $12.

I started trending ammo costs against inflation about 10yrs ago, and noticed that ammo costs were rising faster than inflation, such that even though our incomes are inflating, our work hour buys less rounds every year.

So even though I'm not a "prepper," I do consider that building my stockpile of ammunition inventory is really just a matter of investing in shooting futures!!!

Reloading components are scaling ahead of inflation too. Reloading helps mitigate cost, but it's an unfortunate reality that one hour of work buys less rounds of ammo every year.

I've been told you don't save money reloading because you shoot more, which aint a bad thing.

Yeah, that's probably true for most of us, spend the same or more per year because we saved money on each shot - but I think that might be where they came up with the saying, "get more bang for your buck!!"

Or maybe they got it from the girls on South Broadway...

I always try to think about it in terms of entertainment value. My wife and I could go to dinner and a movie, spend $50 or more for about 3-4hrs of "entertainment," or we can go to the range with a pair of rifles and a pair of handguns, spend about the same time and the same money - which would you rather do?

I got a box of Sears 20ga. ,and 2 box of Sears 22 ammo. Don't know when they where made but I never remember sears even selling sporting goods and I am 30. Also have some old 25/20, 32 remington ammo in old red and green box's. Also have 35 wsl ammo that I have the gun for but can't find or afford to shoot it. Have 2 full box's of winchester and a half box or remington ammo for it. Last year I was at a gun show and they had one box and wanted $75 for it. I would like to know how much ammo was when it was new.
