Guns, ammo, reloading - fair market prices thread

Let's get a list going of fair market prices on guns, ammo and reloading stuff. 

Don't advertise here, this is for advice on prices.

I'm going to compile a list for reference.

Good price is <  market price

Bad price > market price

Fair price = market price

Market price = gunbroker.com price

So if I get enough people to say a certain price, that becomes the 'fair market price', and we all get to buy it at a cheaper price? Oops! I meant 'fair market price'?
It is so hard, particularly now, to determine 'fair market price', I am not sure you can do it. Certainly not without research based upon 'in stock', which seems to be in short supply. I tried to get a price figured out for a couple items but when I actually clicked on them there were none in stock.

Just look at what items are selling for.   Brick of primers flies out the door at 3x multiplier, $100/ brick.   This appears to be the same case with 9mm and .22 lr.   When priced much higher, it appears to not sell.   .223 bulk is about the same.  Sells fast at 1k per 1000 rounds.  Much over that and it just sits.

Iím not saying this is a good price, but that appears to be a fair price based on my observations of what sells and what doesnít.  I may add, I personally would not pay a 3x multiplier but do believe that is what the current market will tolerate.

7.62 x 39 seems to be down to about $.45 - $.50 a round from latest check today.

There is no ammo shortage as far as I can tell. Ammo is for sale all over the place, you just have to buy it at 3x the price from the a**hat that was at Cabela's when they open the door. Seriously go on the waguns forum and look at the ammo classifieds, there is no shortage of 22lr,9mm,380,40sw,45,223,243,308,30/06,30-30,12ga. You can spot the previose spoken of easily

You think $70 a brick is "normal"?

Exactly, and according to some here we should thank them for doing that for us.

Well, what is 'normal'? That would be the question. I doubt prices will ever get completely back to where they were. 'Normal', until Thomas Crapper got the toilet figured out, was to have an outhouse. I would imagine there were some people that were pretty resistant to the idea of an 'indoor toilet' at first, but it certainly is 'normal' now.
Or Mr. Ford's 'assembly line', that made it possible for 'regular folk' to be able to afford a car. Or. Or. Or.
