I realize ammo prices have skyrocketed but as far  as rifle ammo the 6.5 cm has gone through the roof.It is up tp 3.00 per shot getting close to Weatherby ammo prices. Last year I was able to get Sellier& Bellot FMJ 140gr for 16.99/20 rounds. Just saw Outdoor unlimited was selling them for 69.99/20 rounds.Crazy but the same ammo in 308 is 29.99/20 rounds.Why is the 6.5 getting so pricey?

The LGS just said expect the higher prices to stay the same. The gun shops are very busy, over 7 million new gun owners now. Those millions should donate to pro gun organizations to lobby constantly.

Yup, these prices are here to stay for the next 2 years at least.
