Description:

This is a followup chart to my previous 9mm historical index (http://www.slickguns.com/product/9mm-115-fmj-price-history-0). It is a quick, yet accurate representation of SlickGuns.com deals for 9mm, .223/5.56, and .22LR submitted by users since January/2011. This info may be updated in the future to include additional features/products, but is very time consuming and requires manual data entry/calculation without access to SlickGun's server (database).

What it represents:
-PPR of actual product
-Copper FMJ ammunition (Note: .22LR includes leaded ammunition where price difference was minimal)
-Combined average of .223 Rem and XM193 ammunition only (M855 "penetrator" and tracers omitted)
-Average price for the month starting on the first day and ending on the last
-Nationally significant events that correlate to price increases/decreases

What it does not represent:
-Shipping charges
-Backorder/Pre order offers
-Exclusion of unfavorable retailers
-M855 "penetrator" prices

NOTE: I know there are a lot of members out there who will say that my numbers for .22LR are wrong, but keep in mind, these are the ADVERTISED product prices WITHOUT absurd shipping charges (I'm looking at you MidwayUSA and CTD!).

I like this graph. Thanks for your time. I agree the shipping charges are ridiculous. Some places are still charging way too much, I wish some people will stop posting them and giving those stores any more of our hard earned money. We all know who these stores are no need to name any of them!!!!!

I commend you for the effort but where the heck can I buy 9mm brass for 25 cents?

Edit: Well indeed there was some umc from gander mtn for 25c. Good job.

I'd like to see 7.62 x 39 on the same chart.

And a comment on the chart type, connecting scattered data points with a line is not necessarily the best way to show data of this type (yes, I am an engineer). It leads to the conclusion that ammo was available all across those timeframes at the price indicated by the line. I suspect this is not the case, especially in the case of 22lr. A scatter point chart is really the best way to show this type of data. With that said, still it is a nice job, and thanks for your work.

I agree with you...to a point. If I had access to the SG database, yes, a scatter chart might be better, but seeing as I only have access to the public-facing apache Solr module, creating a scatter data set is a bit more time consuming when hand-jamming. I might be able to script something later through an ASP query in excel, but until then, this will have to do.
