Availability? in SASS Wire Posted October 30, 2021 It seems as if the availability comes in waves. A month or two ago, the larger retailers had days when primers, for example, were available online. Even though they didn't last long unsold they were there. The availability of powder comes and goes, although most of the powder available seems to be for rifle cartridges. Prices don't appear to be headed down although loaded ammo is available for sale in some places at only $25 a box of 50 for 9 mm and $1.00 a round for 5.56 ammo. So, nowhere near the "fantasy" levels Larsen brought up.
