If you just wait a bit for the "surge" to go away, there will be skids of this stuff, marked down to 20 cents a round in every wally world, bass pro, cabela and independent gun shops. There is a tremendous amount of hoarding going on and most of this stuff will go out of date long before it is EVER used...
Eh, my theory is that gun prices will crash due to market flooding. Ammo will just equalize since it is constantly replenished. So I am not expecting $0.20 per round, but this double or triple price business will go away.
