They had 102 boxes of 9mm ball, also 22, 45, 5.56 really about all you want no limits. Starting at $28/50 ct box of 9mm ball and higher, no reloading items at all. Glocks and AR rifles, carbines and pistols.

Sorry but I do not buy into the price gouging going on.
Was in a gun store last Thursday and saw 9mm 124gr FMJ 50rd box of Lawman for $13.99 and Blazer Brass for $12.99. Limit 100 rds per caliber.
Granted these are higher prices than a year ago but if they can sell for those prices now how can you say $28.00 or higher for 9mm Is not Price Gouging?

OP, I'm glad they had it in stock, but sounds like they are trying to make too much profit on a bad situation

The price gouging is everywhere in the gun related businesses here unless chain stores but they have zero ammo thank God I reload and cast and saw all this coming in February and stocked up good, we have a back order in the system now for 30000 primers for 2 of us but we are also well stocked now as we did earlier this year. Ammo is no issue here at this time, we shoot weekly a lot every week. Powder no problem at all.

Same here, anything in-stock has been price jacked, they had some .38 spl. @ $40/50, 9mm ball about $30+/50. I did, however find a pretty good deal on Korean surplus .30 carbine ammo. !080 round case, in a steel ammo box, on strippers, with a spoon, at .36 per rd. I have a couple of M1 carbines, love to shoot them, and they make a dam fine home protection or trunk gun. I got a couple of cases. SGAmmo, good to do business with, 3-4 day delivery. My inventory is OK, but then, I guess I learned a lesson back several years ago when .22's were going for sky high prices, when it could be found. I subscribe to the never run out theory.

Thats probably the best price out there right now. My range has HP only for 56. a box, no outside sales.

I WILL NOT purchase anything in the future from "Cheaper than Dirt" after the way they have absolutely price gouged ammo. Their prices are beyond astronomical and have lost me as a customer forever.

How about some conspiracy theory????? Think about munition manufacturing during war, civlian consumers can't come close to military levels (or can they) ...
Do you think in light of election results laws limiting or eliminating gun and ammo production and access will diminish for civilian markets? gouge and get out ... Oh! like Bump Stocks ... Let the discussion begin .....

Put all, yes, all retail sources on your list ... It's about greed not the need! Who is the puppet master?

Those ctd people lost me as a customer when they posted a $3x.xx box of ammo for $178.xx some years ago. Try to buy nothing from them.
Note on prices, as a average customer. The supply chain was drained. What is being produced is allocated out. A 'name' national chain may get 'A' firearm from xxxx manf verses a pallet, to go out to all stores. Ammo : the chain stores will have the best prices, mostly. They still get it as before, price wise, and send it out from the main hub to all end locations. Just about everybody else has to buy from another business, each having to make a profit, thus a higher price. Neither guarantees availability. Now: ammoseek.com, and online bulk buys, or go-in with others at your favorite mom-n-pop gunstore/FFL dealer on a bulk purchase. Unless you can afford the bulk buys yourself. Rember to select 'email when in stock' at favored sights and DO move on them FAST. Midway USA for example.
FCC regulations disallow my comments on the price gouging. Note offenders, vote with your dollars - somewhere else ; now & after things clam down.
