If you guys are talking about ammo now it is a great time to buy.

A strong dollar means copper, lead & tin cost less. That equals lower cost ammo.

I've noted a pattern. When the dollar drops in value as it did after the 2008 bank bail outs about 3 months later ammo prices started rising. I've noted the same pattern each time the dollar has taken a dip since then.

Line all that up against a strong US economy and you get great ammo prices.
