I got this same ammo from

I got this same ammo from them 2 days ago for 50.00 cheaper. * lake city 5.56 was 50 cheaper. This is .223. WOW

I will say though at cabelas today they had the same ammo for 497.00 BEFORE tax on the shelf.

This whole ammo situation has turned into one of the biggest jokes in history. All caused by us... the consumer.

We all want ammo and want to be able to shoot but prices aren't going to drop until we stop paying these prices.

I would disagree with the blaming of "us" and tell you to look no further than the 51% of low information voters who voted for the most liberal, anti-2nd Amendment, president in the history of our Republic. My ammo supply was/is in great shape before and after Sandy Hook. Market forces(supply and demand) , greed of some retailers, and fear are all involved. I'll agree to part of the blame on consumers just don't put "all" the blame on the consumer.

How can you not blame the

How can you not blame the consumer? Once again most gun owners went into a panic thinking that ammo was just going to stop being made. I'd like to think that after multiple times of this same scenario playing out that people would have learned but it will happen again and as times before it will be worse than this last time.

I totally understand people running out buying up all the AR rifles and high capacity mags. I wouldn't be surprised if we see a ban on high capacity mags in 2-3 years.

But people maxing out credit cards, pulling thousands of dollars out of their 401ks to clear shelves of ammo was ridiculous and unnecessary .

It was the consumer. plain and simple. No way around it.

On a side note .. I went into my local wal-mart today and they had a big sign up saying you could buy as much ammo as you want EXCEPT for .22 LR. Still only 1 box.

That's a very encouraging sign.

The funny part of your comment is YOU are the one living in the past. This isn't last October people! I would love $240 -350 for a case... so will one of you smart shoppers please post up a link? I haven't seen those prices for... well, all year.
Agreed we'd all like to see it lower, but stop crapping all over the current reality if you can't post something better. By now, many have shot their stash from pre-Obama and need to buy ammo.

Agreed. This is horrible for Sportsman's Guide. They just delivered 1000 rds of 62gr X-TAC tmd last week for $390.07 and it could have been cheaper had I not forgotten to use the $10 off coupon they sent with my previous order. One things for sure, they aren't pricing it like this because it's not selling. Idiots are buying.

This company is a PITA - I've

This company is a PITA - I've been waiting on 7.62x54r ammo since March. They keep moving out the delivery date, was supposed to ship yesterday now they are saying at the end of August. Not holding my breath. In the meantime, the get other shipments, mark up the price and put a different inventory number on it. I'd avoid, you may not get it anytime soon.

Agreed. The price posted is

Agreed. The price posted is somewhat misleading because in order to get the $446.49 price you have to have paid your $30 to be a member of the Sportsman's Guide Buyer's Club (otherwise the normal price is $469.99 and in that case, the 1,200 rounds of PMC .223 55gr @ Cabelas w/2 dry storage boxes is a better deal at $499 IMO but eh, this isn't too far off I guess).

With that being said, if you plan on buying more from Sportsman's Guide in the future, you could go ahead and join the Buyer's Club because the discount on an item like this would almost pay for the membership and then you can only benefit from that point forward. I'm just not the world's biggest fan of the whole "Pay us to receive discounts" business model, typically.
