Default Gun show prices

Can anyone give me an idea of what cases of 9mm, .40, and .45 will probably be going for?

Last year when I went to the Del Mar Gun show I got 500rds of 9mm Wolf ammo (steel casings) for $89 that came in a plastic ammo can and 250rds of .45 Remington UMC (brass casings) for $86 . Entrance fee was $11 too.

4. Be sure of your target and backstop.

9mm will probably be close to $350-400 for 1000 rounds, .45acp would be around $450-550 per thousand, .223 will be $325-$375 for 500 rounds, 5.56 will be $400-$450 for 500 rounds. I went to the one in ontario and the prices were crazy and they had limits of 1000 rounds max on top of 2-3 hour lines. Reloads will be cheaper but not by enough from the big booths. Check LAX shooting range prices, they are one of the bigger booths to get an idea.

Specifically I remember PMC bronze .223 was either $350 or $375 for 500.

I'd go to support our gun rights, not to try to find deals on ammo. Look at what people will pay in the marketplace and on craigslist. Dont expect anything cheaper than that. There are still deals, just not on AR related items or ammo. Too many people needing lower parts kits, uppers, barrels and bolt carriers.

That picture was an hour before Ontario opened with people already having tickets, by opening the line was 2-3 times as long. That venue was small by comparison.
