I can’t find any boxes with a price on them, but FWIW if I remember right I was paying 5.99 - 6.99 for a 5 round box of 2 3/4 inch 12 gauge slugs, depending on brand. Remington, Winchester, Hornady, Federal.

I know I was paying around $24 for a 100 round box of Winchester 7.5 load for clay shooting, but I’m not a slug shooter. And 9mm ranged from $7.99 to $12.99 depending on brand and stores

Thanks everybody. Looks like we’re still at least 50% or more higher than pre covid prices.

Yup! Stock up when prices are low and be happy you did when prices are high.

FWIW I paid $.16 ppr for 115gn 9mm RN in June 2020 after paying $.14 ppr in May. Quit buying when the price went to $18 ppr. Cost more than that to do reloads now.

I have been tracking 9mm since 2016. My lowest was 115Gr Tula Ammo Steel case at $152.00 per 1000 on Dec. 19, 2016. In 2019, my lowest was $175.80 for Federal American Eagle 124Gr Brass Case on March 30. I usually buy 2 1000 round cases per year grom online deals. I will start again at below 30 cents per round, if I can.
